You say that you respect the horse people on this site and are wanting ANY advice, but when advice is given, you are the one that is being disrespectful.
None of the posts qualify as "unhelpful" in my book.
Speedracer makes valid points. She suggested bloodwork. What if she has a bacterial infection? Kidney failure? Is hypp H/H? That's just to name a few. Knowledge is power and the more information you get, the better the decision can be made for both you and the horse.
KittenVal suggests waiting until the horse has weight put on. With you working in a rescue for so long, id think youd know that horses that come in, arent the same as when they leave. I've rescued many sweet and loving horses 300 pounds underweight. When they started gaining weight and felt better, the true colors came out and many of them were complete b*tches. I had a 3 year old back me into a corner of a stall. Her butt pressed me into the corner and I couldnt get out. If she started kicking, id have been seriously hurt, if not killed.
Also, once she's healthy again, whos to say she doesnt have some type of debilitating injury or malformation that will appear? Calcium deposits. Hoof injury. Etc.
And if you really love this horse, breed doesnt matter. Say she's a qh and not a tb? If she's prefect in every other way then would you not adopt her just based off her breed?
