Critique this Arabian Mare

I know they aren't the greatest pictures to use to critique her but they are all I have so far.

I sure hope you don't turn her out with that rope halter on! Sounds like a good way to get your horse's neck broken. A good leather or breakaway halter would be a better choice. :)

These aren't the best pictures to critique, and I'm not the best critiquer, but I think she could use a little more weight and muscle. Otherwise, she's a pretty girl! I love gray Arabs.

I only put the rope halter on when i'm with her and am using it to ride her with a set of clip on reigns. Otherwise she has a break away halter on. I know she needs to gain some weight. I'm just trying to find the best way to do that. She was starved so I can't feed her anything to rich or it will just make her sick. I have her a handful of feed yesterday. It had rolled corn, oats, some pellets, basically sweet feed but with no molasses they use corn oil instead. I only gave her a handful case i'm not sure if it's okay for her or not.

With that and lots of hay, she'll be fattened up in no time! Give us some update photos in a few weeks so we can see how she's coming along!

she's a pretty girl! I love arabs :)
Appart from being thin, she is lovely
They are not the best pictures but from what I can tell he is a little over at th knee, but its not the worst case I've seen
Her head is very pretty, nice broad, arab forehead and nice delicate mussle :)

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Can't tell for sure, but it appears that she has a bit of an upright shoulder. Do you have any idea how old she is? Is she registered?

We think she is about 10 and I didn't get any papers with her so I' not sure. She has been bred at least once before. Also her feet need to be trimmed properly and I'm hoping that by the time they are I will have a saddle that fits her so I can try out her canter.

The problem is that she won't eat hay She eats grass but ignores the hay. When I tried shutting her in a stall with some hay she went crazy. We don't know her history so everything we discover about her is through trying her with different things but she just won't touch the hay we give her.

That's really odd. Where did you get her? Is there any way to contract a previous owner? Not eating hay is going to be pretty problematic when winter comes and there's no more grass. Maybe she doesn't like your hay? Huh. Maybe it's too stemy or something. Do you have other horses? Are they eating the hay okay? Have you gotten her teeth checked? Maybe that's the issue.
