Pictures of Duffy BEFORE I got her- opinions please!

Hi guys! Was just wondering if you have any opinions on her pics! The one with her stood in a headcollar is apparently two days before the previous owner picked her up, and then she managed to lose all the weight she had on in THAT picture, to the one where she's in all the gear (sold because she wouldn't accept a carriage) and the ridden one is one she had from the advertisement she bought her from... again, opinions? I think she looks pretty good!

Not me ;D

She is a big horse! I noted that yesterday between planning and landing my fall haha.

But the middle picture with her working makes me think she CAN move her hind end, and I am hoping soon I can get more pics. Riding of an evening means that the arena is too dark :(

But makes me so angry she was allowed to get in that condition!

Goes to show you that horse abuse and neglect is not confined to any one part of the world.

Looks good with you on her.

Most certainly not.

Her hooves had old nails left in them, she had untreated wounds, hair loss from being in a pony box and getting cast... A PONY box, for a horse that size.

Like I said, that picture of her being ridden isn't me, I only have a couple, more on face book, but it takes my laptop forever to load them.

Good then because I was going to say something about riding her too deep and having her front end not quite where it should be.

But it is a moment in time.


I guess it looks like she just wasn't meant to be a carriage horse..

Exactly! Thats what I thought, and sometimes she tries to bring herself into a false outline, or too deep to avoid contact.

She is also learning working from behind is not a dirty word and she CAN do it, she just needs a bit of encouragement! Then she starts working in to the contact better. We've done a lot of long and low work. Her balance was horrific, now its bad, so we're getting there. She's having to learn that although I'm the rider, I'm not holding her upright, she has to balance herself and not drag on my hands, which has been such a change, she's very light to the touch.

Boy am I glad she was a rubbish carriage horse haha!

Thumbs down DuffyDuck

I think she's drop-dead gorgeous. Not sure if you actually got her or a friend/acquaintance of yours. Hope whomever did get her is happy she sure is a looker! TB Lover

Still trying to load that link!

And thank you, she is mine :) I bought her in June, have some before and after pictures on my profile when I first bought her to show the condition she was in. Trying to find recent photos of her but can't find any on my laptop!
