Needs some help; any ideas

my father recently bought a beautiful horse; she had no papers, we have no idea what breed or age, many people have a good guess. Some have said she was aged some where between 8 years to 16 years, and breed wise no one has a clue. Would love to get some other thoughts, Harmony has been up and down since we got her back in september this year, most days she will not let anyone near her, and then randomly she will show up and let you come up close, she has made great friends with our other two horse and seems to look after them both, as one is only 12months old and the other a little Shetland Pony who is about 8 years. any thoughts would be great

any assistance would be awesome..

thanks in advance

Christine

8-16 yrs old is a big range. You should be able to narrow it down and a vet should be able to tell you

Yes of course the first picture is the day i got her; the second was last weekend. when we got her feet done they said before we got her it seems that her feet hadnt been done in 6months or more and just left out in a paddock. no papers; mane mattered so they had to cut almost all of it off.. very thin looking, now she has put on weight and loving life

Well that's wonderful :) I just couldn't see her feet so I had to ask!

And you're looking for advice on what specifically.. to socialize her?
