    We picked this little mare up at an auction, She is a registered paint and she is 5 years old...she is small which is what I wanted because I want her for my kids to ride when they are old enough to handle her ( they are 2,3, and 4)
    Her name is Xena's Eternal Mount

    Can't comment on the horse due to none of the pictures have her square..but she's a cutie.

    The thing I feel I MUST say something on is the barbed wire
    That should NOT be used to fence in horses, it's soooo dangerous and can cause really bad injuries.

    about the fence

    That is temporary...being as we had to move and put a fence up in 2 days around 3 acres so I would have a place for them...didnt have much choice...we are building a pipe fence around..which sucks because it isnt my land and that is alot of money...but there is a reason and a story...just a long one....there are very few boarding places but they are choc full of college horses and they are all barbed wire as well...in Arkansas...that is mainly what you get...but we are building a better fence...slowly but surely...until then...barbed wire it is

    I understand your concern and watched a neighbor put down a horse because of one...not a thing I want to see again
    Trust me that fence is worked on everytime my welder is free!

    She's cute, love her face! What is her training like?

    Very cute face, hard to critique, but as said, try to get rid of the barbed wire as soon as possible. Glad you're on top of it.

    Guys, she's made her case on the barbed wire. She wants a critique on her horse, not a lecture....

    Anyway....the horse is truly adorable. She's going to need some TLC though. I have an auction horse as well and he was a mess, but you can do it!!! She needs weight and to be put on some great feed because her coat is dull even though she's still fuzzy. Her mane is as well...nothing some good minerals and feed won't cure!

    Get a LARGE bottle of MTG and start using it on her mane and tail immediately. You will notice a huge difference in just a couple of weeks. I'd also trim her mane short and start all over.

    Does she have hair missing on her left bum?

    She looks younger than five. I personally am not one for her conformation but she looks like a cuddler.
