Ever since we picked her up I've called her our 'ugly duckling'. She constantly looks like she's covered in mud, it just doesn't come out, she's got a bit of a broodmare belly that makes her look like a potbellied pig, and a pink face that looks super eerie, especially at night. She's from surprisingly good Dressagey bloodlines, has produced many stunning babies that have gone on to compete and win, but LOL my vet told me to stop being so mean to her. Anyway!
Heidi is 22, we had a lot of minor health issues with her this year (she went from being an easy keeper to showing her age) and now we're working on putting weight back on her. Her previous owner told us to "wait for spring grass" and I swear it wasn't any of the hay / grain we were pumping into her, the second the spring grass came up she took a turn for the better and looks great :roll:
Anyway, just for fun give me a confo critique on the little monster? And a weight critique, because what do I know. I can feel her ribs if I press down, and she definitely needs condition, but she looks pretty good to me.
I plan on leasing her out this summer, and using her as a lesson pony when I go for my coaching license.
She's a registered POA mare. Note that all breeding was done by her previous owner.
EDIT: How on earth did I put this in the wrong critique section? I'm going to re-post, this can be moved if staff feels it should.
