Red face New member of my herd.

Ok, so I'm getting a new horse. This is a horse that I helped to put up the money to rescue last year around the beginning of the year. She is a Pure bred QH. She was in with a paint filly and a pure Arabian. I love Arabians and he was my choice. He has not been saddle broke or anything. My friend that found the 3 of them has kept them at her house and together we have brought them back to life. The Arab has become her fav and she is working to make him a cart horse. He now has awesome ground manners and looks 100 times better. The QH mare "Red" has been ridden and just need more tuning...I'm good at that! So my friend is trying to place the paint filly now and I am going to take the QH to my place.

These are old pics of the first day(then a week later) of when we rescued them. The QH was in the best shape because he had her for the shortest time.

1st day....
Paint filly



1 week later...

I don't know if you can tell but in the first pic of the red QH mare, if you look about half way down her tail...That is a knot! One big mass of knotted tail hair! We had to cut it out!
