    I remember when you first got her and posted a pic. She looked so sad with her face in your guys chest!
    The very first thing I noticed was how her spirit looked so alive!
    Mom2pride see's it also.
    She looks as though she is doing well, her coat looks wonderful and some weight has been gained.
    How proud you must be. From the pics it seems as though she is singing a happy little tune..."yes...I have arrived home!"
    Good for you!
    Can't wait to see her in another month or so!

    What a girl! She still has a ways to go, but is looking better all the time! Thanks for sharing! I definitely love hearing about this girl!

    Absolutely gorgeous and you've made such progress with her!

    I can tell you with virtually 100% certainty she's not a Thoroughbred. When I first saw photos that's what I thought, and the moment I started watching the video I said to Shay-la "No way dude, she's a Saddlebred". That movement is extremely specific to a certain type of horse - combined with the long narrow face, the archy high set neck and the overly flagged tail (other breeds may banner it a bit, only certain breed plume it up to that extent), I think she's either a Saddlebred or an Arabian/Saddlebred. With that head though, she screams classic Saddlebred to me. I think you may have a real diamond in the rough there, she has lovely movement and I think with a bit more time, you'll find yourself in utter awe of what she's going to blossom into.

    Holy crud! She's gorgeous! I love her! The way she moves makes my jaw drop. Springy, springy pony!!!

    My first thought was saddlebred to...
    She's looks happy :)

    I am not all that familiar with Saddlebreds, and I am more inclined to think Standardbred. Did anyone check her for a lip tatoo? That would be definitive.

    When you put her under saddle, if she refuses to bend and tries to turn corners by holding her body straight and crossing over, that's a good indication for Standardbred too.

    My neighbors OTTSB also carries his tail like that when excited or animated.

    In any case, congrats on her, and your excellent work in bringing her back. Can't wait for the next update.

    I have a standarbred mare (we are guessing her breed) that's taller then heidi and more filled out, of course. I think there's a good chance your rescue mare may be part standarbred. Sh's looking amazing and has come so far! Good luck with her! She has such a trusting and honest face, it's hard to believe she has had such a rough life.
