    Talking SooOOOoo EXCITED :)

    Jon and I just got back from meeting Patches a mostly white and sorrel mare paint Registered Quaterhouse that his friend wants to let him have for FREE :)
    She is BEAUTIFUL (other than needing a bath) she has one bluish grey eye and one brown. I'll post a phone picture I have of her but it definitely doesnt do her justice. He is also planning to sell a good leather saddle in dang good condition for 100! I could not be more estatic I love the paint I have found and will render a decision soon, but who could pass up a good registered QH for free! She's even a little more than 15h so basically perfect for a 6ft man. She's also about 1200lbs in the summer months! Hoping we'll move her to her new home very soon!!

    I don't want to burst your bubble here, but I also need to be realistic.

    I highly doubt that she is a registered AQHA quarter horse. Make sure you take possession of her registration papers as well as the horse. Perhaps she is a registered APHA Paint horse.

    I also doubt that she weights 1200 lbs. In the summer months. She's a long way from that right now so something must have drastically changed for her to lose that much weight in a few months time. In general, her body is lacking in muscle tone in addition to her being underweight. You should find out why there has been a change from the 1200 lbs. Animal that they say she was during the summer. Is it health related? Feed related? Lack of feed related?

    GottaRide - I have her paperwork, I do believe she is a registered APHA Paint horse, tho the original owner was referring to her as a registered QH.
    She is underweight as of now but he said she beefs up in the summer months. This could be due to the situation in which we rescued her from.. the man who owned her could not afford to feed her, so I'm quite sure she is under weight. He said he had her weighed 6 months ago and she was a little under 1200lbs. She hasn't been ridden much either as this man had 4 total, 2 of which were the more ridden he originally bought her as brood mare.
    The place we are keeping her has abundant grazing in which we are supplementing sweet feed and hay. Also planning to get her back in shape.
    This horse was given to us, no cost of any kind other than our arrangements for board with a different individual.. I feel like we've done her a great deed by bringing her in as we will care for her more so than her previous owner. I also feel that with some good riding and good feed she should shape up. I believe the other man just could not provide what was needed...
    Thanks for your input, also even if she does turn out to be sickly (tho she doesn't act like it) the original owner would take her back. He said if we ever try to get rid of her to please contact him first.. so its really a win win for us... and her I believe.
