Ok all...This is "Heidi"...she is a 6yr old 16.2 hand bay mare. She was rescued from a "rescue" where they starved her and 8 other horses. They were confiscated by the Hernando County Sheriff's office 2 weeks ago. 2 of the horses were so emaciated that they had to be put down at the scene. I adopted Heidi this past Sunday. I am no longer allowed to ride right now because of some medical/joint issues that I am going through so I had to give up my riding horses. I couldn't live without a horse, and she is as able to ride as I am...which is not :) We decided to name her Heidi after Heidi Klum...because like a model, she is 'tall & thin'. She has the sweetest disposition, but lacks about 400 or so pounds. I am actually happy that she is so hairy right now because it makes her look better!! Obviously this won't be a very good critique...but I wanted to show you my new treasure and introduce her to you guys :) I will be keeping track of her progress as she coems along to share. She has already gained about 100 lbs where she was stating so now we just gotta pump up the rest!
I hope you all can see through her condition to see the gentle and kind soul that she really is. She has a forever home now, with lots of food an love :)
