    She has nice color and free is free. However if you really want her I'd suggest to do the vet exam. So called "free" horses sometime end up being very expensive maintenance-wise. Also if she has a good pedigree as well as the sir, I'd keep a baby (although I can't tell much about tb pedigree so no help here).

    P.S. Frankly, I havn't seen any critique from anyone in this particular thread.

    Then why are you continuously bringing this up? I haven't started anything. You got mad at me for making some comment?? About your original post which was very unclear to begin with-then you come here and say "don't come and ruin it for me"?? The second YOU drop whatever it is you are going on about, things will continue smoothly. I don't think anyone even knows why you are getting upset.

    The whole thing sounds fishy. Why in the world would they breed her to foal so late in the year. Would put her foal at a HUGE disadvantage in racing. If I was interested in her, I'd take her right away because I think she needs better looking after than what she is getting. It's really hard to say for sure from the photos, but I think she needs some weight.

    BTW, why are you looking at another horse, when you don't have a place for your first one that you are happy with?

    See that's one reason I want her. I'm always taking animals that aren't well cared for and taking great care of them. All of my pets have been rescues, I always try to help those in need instead of the ones that are outrageous in money and perfect. I'd rather take a not so perfect horse and turn them into a beautiful horse that is well taken care of! I have a soft spot for all animals. That's the main reason I bought Max, he was really bad off where he was and he'll have a great home with us!

    Good for you. They can be hard work but in the right hands can become absolutely amazing. There is a horse on the current hunter circuit, a grey gelding whom from what I understand actually came out of the meat pen. He somehow got picked out and brought home by this young rider who could not afford one of those "high end" warmbloods. She trained him, worked thru a few things he misunderstand and wanted no part of and since the day she started showing, she's either won her classes or done really well. She won a provincial title with that horse hmmm... 3 years ago I believe?
    Good for you. If only more people had the same attitude towards the "unwanted" horse population.

    Foal
    I wish more people did too! It breaks my heart when I see these animals that are neglected! I don't know if its more military people than others or what....but since I've lived in a military town for the past two years I have never seen so many people neglect their animals! They go through them like garbage. I just can't believe people could be that horrible.

    That's awesome to hear about that girl! People don't realize what something could be because they can't look beyond the outside!

    I have the house of misfit pets because I take all the ones that no one else wants!

    I don't think she's foaling that late in the year... April is only a few months away. And she may not have caught right away which is why she's foaling in April. Most yearling Sales (if they were to put the foal through a sale) are closer to the end of their yearling year.
    I don't think that this would put the foal at any disadvantage to it's career in racing (if she decides not to take them both) at all imo.

    I like her. I'd buy her and the foal if it was me. That way you could have a project
