My New Horse!

Meet Ruby! She is from a breeding operation gone wrong, and she and around 20 or so other horses were taken in by a rescue after being contacted by the breeder's sister. The sister had been taking care of these horses (there were over 30) for the past three years. Then the brother decided that he was tired of 'taking care of' the herd and decided to ship them. The sister talked him into letting her talk to the rescue to see if they could rehome the horses instead of sending them through the auction ring. The rescue raised money and sold all but two of the adoptable horses. Some geldings, but mainly mares. They took in the 6 older mares as permanent residents.
I picked little 4 year old sorrel/chestnut (I haven't decided which she is yet) mare. She may be bred for an Oct foal. That will be determined on the 25th when she gets her coggins and preg check. She will also be dewormed at that time.
She isn't halter broke, but the lady from the rescue said that she is a sweet heart and is a thinker.

It looks to me that she got a bit banged up on her back legs during the 4 hour
Trailer ride to the rescue.

All the pics are from the same side sorry

A friend of mine is picking her up for me in mid March and bringing her to my parent's place. I get to go up on the 27th of May (til the 3 of June) and hopefully halter break her. I won't be putting much work on her for the summer or fall because I'm in BC for an internship with Lone Larch Akhal-Tekes. But I figure this won't hurt her as far as letting her fill out and get done growing.

Are there any major conformation flaws that you guys/gals see? Either in the filly or the stallion. Thanks!

Here is a pic of the stud she was in with

Here's to hoping for a bald face paint foal.

I think she will look nice once you get to working with her and she gets the attention she needs. She looks like a doll though!

I can't wait to see how she looks shed out in the spring! I think she needs a bit more meat put on, but thankfully she isn't too skinny.

She's pretty congrats and good luck with her!! My biggest concern is she might need to be tested for frame. Good looking stud too!

I sent you a link about frame, since this isn't a discussion about breeding, I just wanted to let you know.

Cute. She does like she got banged up , just make sure that those hocks are not swollen, hard to tell with the hair. If she is preg hope all goes well .

The vet is going to be out at the rescue doing all the horses' coggins and preg testing the mares. If the legs are still looking bad, I'm sure he'll take a look at them.
