I GOT MY NEW HORSE TODAY! Her name is Clover, and she's a 3 year old Paint mare (not registered). She has been in a field with 50 other horses and was clearly at the bottom of the totem pole. She's got bite marks and scrapes all over. She also has an old hock injury, which has been x rayed and apparently it's just scar tissue. Eventually, I will have this removed. The vet said she's sound to ride, so even though it looks very ugly, it's not that bad.
She trailered fine, and then I gave her a bath. She was so patient and sweet. She's not spooky at all and she accepted everything with calmness. I can't wait to work with her!
So what do you guys think of her? She's still growing, but can you point out any bad points about her? Clearly she's underweight and not in shape, but other than that? She's a little under herself as well.
After a bath (still needs more work but you should have seen how muddy she was!):
This is her at a show last year.
And best of all, she was FREE!! :) Yay!
