Horse News

ok here is delilahs story or what we were told.

She was starved and abused and dropped off at the farm we got her from. We were also told she was 18 years old. She was 300-400 lbs under weight and he feet looked like elf shoes. Oh yeah she has arthritis really bad and can't canter.



What we found out.

She can canter just fine. And she can buck like no ones business in the pasture. She can even jump. She is................................................ .......................... over 25 years old!!!!!!!!! Our dentist/farrier looked at her teeth today and told us that the horse "expert" we got her from is a big fat lair. She has never foundered, thank goodness. And is looks fantastic for her age. She is worth her weight in gold.

Here is a recent pic of our old girl (please excuse the nasty pasture. It had rained really hard that day):
