    Another possible buy.

    Hello, I am still on the search for another horse to add to our small herd of three. This beauty has currently caught my eye, she is a rescue horse. Was very thin when they first recieved her. However she is located in New Jersey, but there are transporting plans that could possibly be discussed. Before I decide anything, I'd like some input on her. I only have one current picture of her, though. Which may not be much help.

    Hard to tell from the angle. Nice colouring on her although could use a little more weight and topline. What will you use her for?

    To me she looks overall very thin and undermuscled. What are you looking to do with her? Has she been ridden much or are you looking for more of a project horse. A few more details would be great!

    Was she rescued from Camelot? NJ is close to there. If she is, make sure she gets 30 days quarantine......

    She is very nice looking! Maybe a bit more weight and muscle? :) Although, we can't really give you input on a photo! It all depends on wether or not you are good together, and what she is being used for. :)
    Good luck finding a horse to suit your needs! :)

    Camelot auction is in south central NJ. New holland auction is in PA. Rescues in NJ often pull horses from both auctions. If you let me know what rescue she is at I can probably tell you more about her as Ever After and Arabian Rescue Mission also both network with camelot and other NJ rescues on a regular basis.

    She is definitely a pretty horse with nice coloring and decent conformational angles. Aside from that it is hard to tell bc we can't see her legs or feet. Her hip, shoulder, neck and headset all are conformationally acceptable. Remember conformation is NOT based on muscling but on the angles of bones and joints and how the horse is put together. Muscling and weight will improve the horse's overall look and presence but the conformation of the bones and angles that make up the structure of the horse will not change.

    I think rescues make excellent horses because many of them are so grateful at having a second chance that they are very willing, honest, and attentive to their owners. I'd love to hear more about her.

    I know, I have been trying to locate other pictures of her, but I have only found that one so far. She definitely needs a bit more weight and muscle, but that is perfectly fine with me. I will probably just use her for a trail horse, I would like to see how she does with barrels, but it all depends.

    I'm not really sure about her past, for I haven't gotten much info on her other than she's been used as a trail horse and a broodmare.

    Yes, she is one of Camelot's. I saw her on Camelot Horse Weekly's wall and fell in love.

    Thank you! It's been a very long search and I have a feeling it is going to continue.

    I'm not exactly sure which rescue horse she is, I have been trying to find other pictures of her as well as her number, but I have not been successful. Although I did find that they just call her by "Paint Mare", I will continue to try and look.

    I also agree on rescues, they do make wonderful horses.

    What rescue is she located at is what I meant and how did you find her?

    All that is says is that, she's up for adoption in Sussex, NJ. I found her on Camelot Horse Weekly's facebook page.
