    In 18 months!

    This little mare was on a piece of land not far from our house. She was owned by some people who were squatting on the land. They did not feed thier horses and when the RSPCA finaly got involved 4 dead horses were found on thier drive. Anyway this little mare was an escape artist and she used to get out of the field and trot down the road to our house, talk over the gate with our horses and graze on the verges. We called the RSPCA several times and they wouldnt do anything untill I threatened to go to the papers and even then they just had words with them.
    Anyway long story short RSPCA are useless so we bought these 2 for very little money so she and a bay colt ended up with us. She was in foal, colt was even thinner than her. She foaled quite easily and I put a little bit of weight on the colt, gelded it, sold it to a friend of mine who piled the weight on it and sold it on and it is now showjumping with a kid somewhere, Sold the foal at weaning (weaned early to allow her to put on weight). Sold the mare to my cousin (For her kid) as I was in no position to have that many horses (having had 4 in my field before her and the colt arrived).

    Pic of the colt

    I don't have any after pics of him unfortunately as I lost contact

    Ooops probably should read the OP properly, never mind. I no longer own Gliss, indeed she is no longer alive but she is one I will brag about occasionaly!

    My current project is Reeco.
    He was bought to be a show horse (and I do mean a very serious prospect of going right to the top).
    Unfortunatly when I sent him away for breaking they sent him back as unbreakable and told me to have him PTS as he was dangerous and would never be ridden.
    Took a couple more false starts before I found the right woman for the job but now he is not only ridden but the first time I sat on him we went out on a hack and he didnt look at anything. We have now established self carrige in walk ant trot and will hopefully be doing our first ridden competition in the new year!

    Inhand competition


    Under saddle with me for the first time:

    Great stories & pics everyone. Some great transformations!

    Mine isn't a "rescue" story per se. Woodstock was born here, sold as a weanling to a cutting barn that intended to show & stand him at stud. I contacted them when he was a 3 yo to see how he was doing. What I found out was a bit of a shock. They'd had big time financial issues, lost their trainer and he had been stuck in his box stall for 3 years unhandled except to get sedated for the farrier. I bought him back sight unseen and had him shipped home.

    I got back a nightmare. He had at least been taken care of in the most basic sense, wasn't malnourished. His manners were beastly. Very aggressive, dominant stallion. I spent a good amount of time working through those issues, many a time he could have been the horse to kill me. Bite, kick, charge, strike, food dominance, you name it, he tried it. Got through that and got him under saddle only to have him and I crash at a lope when he went down in a covered hole to his knee. I went ahead and had him cut because of his uncertain future soundness.

    Glad to say that he is now mended and back in training. Here he is

    *sigh* Love me some Woodstock..


    I have three Quarter Horses who are my life..

    Nikki, I've had her two years and she has been a dream. She has taught me so much and is the most honest horse I know. I know that if I point her in the arena she is going to give her all and I completely trust her. She's such a good girl but has the ditsy personality of a true air head..



    Hickory is my 22 year old retiree. He taught me everything I know..and alot of patience lessons. He is seriously my baby and is extremely spoiled. I know this horse like the back of my hand and don't know what I would do without him.

    This is my little sister and Hickory at the 2011 State Championships in September.


    This is my new girl, Lark, I've had her almost two weeks now and I am SOO excited to see where we go together. She is definitely the fastest horse I've ever owned and she is truly a doll so far. I need to upload more pictures of her but I've just been too lazy to..Our first barrel race together is this weekend!
