Yesterday a coworker of mine asked me if I wanted a few horses. I said no, but I went out and looked at them. I HAD to get them out of that place. The lady thought she was saving the two emaciated ones from a client of hers, but she is no experience horse person. She aquired the stud from a neighbor.
I'm asking for critique on the paint stud, I just thought I'd share the others and ask a few questions. I got them today and I going to get the vet over here asap. They all need a strong deworming (has anyone ever done a tube deworming? I was told about it through a friend and I thought I'd ask about it), they need their teeth floated, a current coggins, vaccinations, and a pedicure or two.
This is the paint stud, name suggestions? I was thinking something expensive sounding like Armani. He can be registered... I just need to track down his papers. He's supposedly almost 3 years old. He's in decent condition and his groundwork will start when he gets settled in just becuase of his lack of respect or handling for that matter. He's pretty small and I really want him to keep growing. Do you see any show potential in him? Maybe WP?
He was standing with his leg cocked; which is why his hocks are touching.
Note the white eyebrow :)
Now, the horror-story pictures. The first is a paint mare... I have her papers I just need to send them in. She's 4 y/o and really small, probably cause by malnutrition. She is one of the sweetest horses I know, despite her condition which never ceases to amaze me. Name suggestions (barn & reg.)? Her mother is Shes Modern Art Paint and her sire is Choose Choice Quarter Horse. What would you call her color? I'd say buckskin but is that true since she doesn't have a dorsal stripe?
And this is Hank, I'll bet you he's a Belgian draft cross but there's no way of knowing for sure. He's supposedly half-broke, and I'm guessing his age to be around 4 or 5.
If you have any tips or information I'd be glad to hear it!
