Definitely a big improvement She certainly looks a lot brighter in spirit even!!!

Can I throw this out there, as far as breed? The way she carries herself, she definitely has Arabian influence; she could possibly be NSH (national show horse) which is Saddlebred and Arabian cross.

Mom2pride, we didn't think of that just because I've been around ASB's and Arabs and NSH's quite a long time and she just really didn't remind me of it...My appy mare used to trot around flagging her tail like that too lol! Her build just isn't as "refined" as most NSH's that I have been around...but who knows! Haha...she's my Heinz 57 :)

Aw she's cute. Still a bit to go in the rib area but she looks much much better. Good job =D . She's got the same bump ginger does.. do you know what it is ? No ones given me a direct answer haha. ( I circled the bump im talking about, http://i48.tinypic.com/fks87n.jpg )

Id say she's gotta have some tb in her she has that thin / lean build. I wouldent be surprised if she was 100% tb.

She looks so cute in that video. That high tail scream Arabian, but she does look like a Standardbred. I love how she just stands there and looks in at you at the end like, "what do you want me to do now?" Is she as sweet as she looks? Great job.

I believe the "bump" you are talking about is in fact where the horse has little to no fat/muscle anymore. As they fill out weight wise and become conditioned that "bump" will not be visible. I have seen it in many horses and it seems like it's always the last sign of malnourishment to leave. She looks great now (looks STB or TB to me!). In a few more months she wont even look like the same horse and her energy and spirits will soar!

I wish I could steal her!! You are doing such a good job. I think she may be STB. She moves so beautifully.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments :)

YES!! She is definitely as sweet as she looks :) She has come a long long way already in this short time frame! The video was actually a "lazy" day believe it or not haha!

That bump that she has right now is because she has no muscle, fat or anything covering her spine...I will attach a pictures...it is actually the spot on the hore where the sacral vertebrae and the lumbar vertebrae meet and have a little "dip" (also hip conjoining area, etc).

Her's is there due to malnutrition ad being nothign but a skeleton with fur at first...there is a nother reason for a "bum" in tha area which is a hunter's bump. Usually comes by starting a horse too early, working them too har too early, etc...it's not necessarilly "common" in TB's but I hae seen quite a few OTTB's with them, aso jumpers and hunters (hence the name) that were over jumped too early of an age, etc. It usually doesn't effect their way of going, some it causes discomfort. Each horse is different. Usually with a good toplin you can barely tell or not at all if a horse used to have/has one.

We think she is also a STB, or at least a TB crosss since her legs are actually not as "refined" as most TB's, and her structure in general. She still looks 'slender' because she still has a few more hundred pounds top pack on lol!

I really apprecaie your kind feedback guys :) It makes it worthwhile to see ehr happy and beaming now, not like when she came! SHe could barely walk when she first came :( it was pitiful!
