those are cute pics. She is looking better. So nice of you take this old girl home. You will have to tell us how old the Vet guesses her to be.
From her teeth in this pic i would guess 20 youngest to 25 + ..
So glad you have takenthe time with her and love her so much ;)

Thank you, Stevenson! Almost forgot, we bought two pregnancy tests to try out on her, and the first one said no...Lets hope for another no! As much as I want a baby, I do NOT want one from an unknown stud with unknown diseases, and what if she had some sort of disease that got passed down to baby? Wouldn't be fun...

Sorry, Roadyy, missed your comment.
She will let us do whatever we want besides lifting, but she doesn't do anything like biting, just won't lift. We can sometimes lift the back feet, but she's still learning how to stand on 3 feet so I can only lift it a little bit.

lol... well I could be wrong in my age guess !! if she is pregnant, as 20 is pretty old for a brood mare, but it is still a possibility .
I would not be worried about diseases being passed to the foal, if she has been vaccinated, and you are feeding her correct for a preggers mare then hopefully she will not have foaling problems. There can be genetic issues, but I would not worry about those until the Vet says she is pregnant, I would concentrate on her weight and general health issues . I would get a Vet out to preg check her, and get her teeth floated.

Thats the plan, Stevenson! I wanna take in my coin collection to see how much money I have in there so far, buuut I'm 99.9999% sure if I do, it's going to end up getting used on something else (not my choice). I gotta earn 300 bucks (maybe more) for her teeth, and thats what we want to get done first, then we can do other things like shots, preg check, etc.

Constant work on the picking up feet. Well let me reword that. Daily work on picking up feet. Rubbing, lifting, holding, rubbing while lifted... It can take time or if she's willing and you approach her correctly about it could be easy as pie.

Yesterday morning, Annie was out sleeping laying down in the field...It was the cutest thing! Then before she got up, she rolled and just layed there sprawled out for a minute..She was so cute!! I also rode her bareback again yesterday...Aaaannnd got thrown by her bareback yesterday...Glad to see she's feeling good and all, but still... Anyways, long story short, mom wanted me to ride her on my own (AKA off the lounge...Bad idea number one, as she doesn't know how to woah under the saddle, but on the ground she's fine), and we were walking down TINY hill (pretty much just a speed bump) and she got to feeling good, so she started trotting, and I tried to woah her, but she kept going and then she broke into a split second canter and did the smallest buck in the world (but that was all it took since by then I was off balance), and then I was on her neck, and then I was on the ground. And of course I had to get up ASAP because apparently she didn't like throwing someone off for the first time and started panicking when I flew off of her and was trotting at me...Yea, fun day!

I think walking down the hill unbalanced her and yeah bad idea to be off the lunge when she can't whoa under saddle.

Tell be about it :/ Mom ALWAYS makes me ride her on my own though, but I just feel like if she were on the lounge it would be easier to train her.

Do you use vocal cues when you ride her and lunge her?

What about circling to a halt?
