Sad little rescues :(

Ok guys, first off... these are proper neglected, 'should not have been bred rescues', not 'well-bred horses that somehow ended up at the slaughterhouse' types. So please be kind to them. They can't help that they are here, and they are here now, so...

I'm thinking of taking one on, as i'm hoping with some love and training, it may be a good, loving riding horse for somebody who wants just that. Not a show horse obviously, but i'm sure he could be precious to somebody...

So all i'm looking for is one who is likely to be a sound horse, that would be able to be ridden in a general way, so that taking it in would be worthwhile for the horse to have a chance at being somebody's forever pony.

Ok, they are two year olds I think, and I only have these horrible pictures as i've not seen them in person yet, so don't flay me alive. They are not flattering, so that's why i'm asking for more opinions I.e. You guys! I have no idea of their height, breeding, or really anything else at this point. Sorry...

Tell me what you think. If you think I shouldnt be doing this, tell me that too. All opinions appreciated.

I think they are cute-and certainly worth a try. Good luck and let us know which one you choose....and progress!

Thank you both for your messages. Its very encouraging for me. It sometimes feels like one cannot really make a difference to the plight of horses today, so I have been having sleepless nights about whether I should get involved, or whether it wont even matter at all.

I think I would choice from the 2nd and 5th horse. I loove the bays looks, but don't like how he is built behind.

I really like the bay. The choice of the 2 up above, I'd definitely go with the bay. BTW some of these look like mustangs to me. What breeds are they?

This little girl might not be all that bad either. She's standing oddly so that's why she isn't as flattering but she is still growing. She looks young.

I think all have possibilities. It is amazing what proper care and training can do to make overall improvements. Let us know your pic and start a thread to show all your progress as you go along. I love before and afters.

Randomrider92 - thanks for your comment! They are not mustangs, just very mixed I think.
I agree about that filly, there's something about her that I like. The bay is also a favourite.

Allison Finch - I would love to start a thread, such a good idea! Then I could get awesome input and advise from all of you along the way. Would love that.
