Pictures of my new rescued girl....

This is Havana. She is a four year old palomino Quarter Horse mare. She came nameless (Although dumb a$$ and other various profanities were used so often with her I believe she thought THAT was her name...) She is very sweet. While we were there taking the horses that we could the owner busied herself hitting, swinging ropes at, screaming at and kicking the rest of the herd for no reason. They were all various sorts of thin and shy but she called them a bunch of xxxxxxx fatties. No food in sight, none on the property and the excuse "I just ran out last week, I only feed when I ride" was tossed around quite a bit. The owner grabbed some old hay off from her trailer floor, walked into the pasture to catch a few horses and was mobbed by a herd she claimed was not hungry. She kicked, screamed and hit her way threw them...
I believe I will be going back for anything else she has offered for sale. Here is one of the girls we brought back with us a few days ago however...

Her horrible feet!



Her weight is hard to see given her super long coat and light palomino color but she feels awful and was/still is very dehydrated and sucked up. Her rear end looks like it just fell off her body.





Given the situation most didn't look terrible... She has such a sweet personality and expression. It is AMAZING how forgiving horses are. They have nothing to prove to us, we have so much to prove to them yet they'll continue to try.

No clue! Can't wait for the farrier visit the first week in January, she'll love this one. This poor girl looks like someone took a rasp and hoof knife to the outside of her hooves - which could have likely been the case with this person.

I have never seen a hoof look like that before. That is just awful. Please post and let us know what your farrier says.

Yes, I will be quite interested in what our farrier has to say. To me it looks like someone etched a tic tac toe board onto her foot and maybe figured if they got bored with riding they could always hop off and play a game?
I've never seen anything like this....

What a sweet face. Glad you have her now & she will thrive in your loving care. Will be interesting to see her in the summer & how golden she will get!

She has the sweetest face ever, some people are just unbelievable. I'm thinking the colour of her muzzle could be her summer colour?? If so she will be stunning, especially with some weight on!
