i was just sitting here looking through old photos of possum and jarred and thinking how its so hard when you see a horse that has been neglected and is skinny and covered in rain scalds and itch and whatever else. its hard to look at them and really know what they would be like with some love and care
example: possum in the beginning. i know ive posted these pics before but they are the only ones i have that show how yuck she looked.
i remember thinking when i got her how she wasnt the most attractive horse but more than anything i just wanted to make her healthy again. i didnt know if even in good condition she would be a nice looking horse. but i was wrong
i could put up a million more but i think yet get the point :) i know she isnt the worlds most beautiful horse but she has turned out to be a surprise especially considering that lurking beneath that skinny old mare was a beauitfully trained dressage horse who really knows her stuff.
anyhoo the point im trying to make is that i wonder how many more horses would be bought from sales etc if we could actually see what every horse is going to be like when in top shape. i know you can tell some things from conformation etc but you cant see that horse in exact detail.
not only that, when you come across horses at sales you have no idea what training they have. but they are overlooked because they dont look so great at that time but im sure there are plenty of talented, trained horses at the sales
i dunno! im bored and having random thoughts lol what do you guys think?
