Anyhow, the fact that this mare is out of an Al-Marah bred mare would make her worth something in most anyone's book, Al-Marah horses are sometimes hard to come by and highly sought after bloodlines by a lot of Arab folks! I don't think this mare looks broken down at all, she just had a foal and is underweight, she needs some weight on her, and some muscling up, and she will be a knock-out. Looking forward to seeing more pictures of her! If she had been up for sale I would've bought her in an instant, especially with those bloodlines! I think your friend got a hekuva deal! How old is the mare?
