    Is it just me...

    Ok, so I was looking on equinenow.com and I found this horse for sale. Is it just me or is this horse very emaciated looking? It seems strange to me that this person would put a possibly negelcted horse online for anyone to see....

    She does look very underweight to me - especially her neck and hindquarters. Poor girl! I hope she gets a good home.

    If you look at the bottom it says she is posted by a recue facility?? I wonder if she is new to them, or if they are not so great??

    She links to a rescue:

    Habitat for Horses

    Most of the horses look in good condition. Maybe they just got her?

    Habitat for Horses is a pretty darn good one, imo, so I'm sure she didn't get in that condition on their watch, rather is recovering with them.

    That's good. :) I thought that might be the case, but I didn't have time to look at other horses at the time. Good to know its a good rescue :)

    She does look quite underweight, but it may be that she was neglected and the horse rescue facility just got her

    HFH would not let a horse get in that condition. I bet she just arrived there or is still going through her recovery process. They are one of the best rescue facilities there is
