She was a very gentle little mare so maybe it was that.
She really was a sweetheart and I miss her like mad.
When we got her, we were actually looking for a bay, working hunter type, about 9 or 10 and around 15.2. We ended up with Molly, a very thin, 20 year old, 14.2 palomino. I wasn't ever there when my mum and her friend went to get her, they felt so sorry for her, they couldn't leave her. We had to have two of her teeth taken out because they were so bad and for the first two weeks, I had to ride her in just a saddle cloth because she got really bad girth galls. We used to walk pretty much everywhere.
She was the type of horse that could easily have been abused and taken advantage of in the wrong hands.
Aww that is awful! Maybe she started getting beat or abused a little bit when she started getting older and she just couldn't do anything about, especially if her whole life she was so sweet she could been taken advantage of, because being old can't possibly help.
Luckily she was moved out of whatever environment she was in, otherwise, who knows what would have happened to her.
That is overall so sad though. I honestly don't get what could drive a person to want to abuse their horse it is just why get a horse if you are going to just beat the living tar out of them.
It is a good thing that your mom and aunt decided to get her, and who knows, you and your mom and aunt might have just saved her life by getting her.
