I'm still pretty new here, but I just had to put in my little "wow". What a beautiful bay she is. I just love the feet on a bay like that. Who needs shoes when you've got a bay! LOL! And only 6 years old!!!! You have lots and lots of wonderful years ahead of you with this pretty girl. :) My boys were also rescues. They came into my life just 2 months ago after a sweet older couple nursed them back to health for a year. When I see the before pictures, it's so hard to believe I have those same horses. It's so hard to believe people can be so cruel to their animals. Congratulations!!!!!
Congrats on your new horse. There is nothing like the feeling of saving one. I had a mare like that but she was far worse than your mare. I paid $700.00 for her and told my bf if she makes it through the weekend I will be surprised but at least I can say I gave her a second chance. She only weighed about 350 lbs and she was 5 years old and 15 1 hands. With time and feed and mostly good quality horse hay she made a great recovery as I am sure that your mare will do as well. I like hearing news of the rescues.
She is gorgeous! Kudos to you! I know what a great feeling it is to give a horse like this a good home. Hunter wasn't as bad in my case but left any longer and he would have been. Can't wait to see future picts!
