Went and looked at a horse yesterday

The horse is 5-6 yrs old, between 14 to 14.5 to 15 hands. She said the mother was part mustang . Pretty horse but it is sort of smallish but I'm thinking I can fatten it up over time. I know it won't get any taller, but how much can I put on weight wise and also can I put on alot of muscle to it? I want to add a good bit of muscle and definitely fatten her up very well.
Thoughts?

I will try and get a pic up of her if I can go take one.

There is no such thing as 14.5 in height. Also 14 and 15 is rather big difference so be careful about it. I went to look at 14'1 horse once. Not positive he was even 13 hh!

Is it broke? Trained?

She said they just broke her. I'm trying to post an image. I also tried to add it to my sig but it says the max size of an image in a sig is 468 x 60. Smallest option at tinypic.com is 100 x 75. How would I get an image here. I actually pasted the link from tiny pic in my reply, highlighted, then clicked on image on top of box here and pasted the image link in it and hit enter. Didnt seem to work. I wanted to get it to where it would automatically show .

When you create a post there is "Manage Attachment" button below - you can upload pics directly from your PC to the post.

I'm not sure how good rider you are and how many horses you trained but "just broke" horses usually LOTS of work and need a professional trainer/instructor to progress.

She doesnt look anywhere near 14hh to me, possibly 13hh!!

I hate wire fencing but if you have to have it round horses then it needs to be in good repair!

yes I know the fencing is terrible! I will have that horse looking much better. I am going to use rope wire also. My whole setup is going to look 1 million times better than that. I am a neat freak. I'm not sure how to measure hands but I am going to google right now. That's why I made this thread to ask if its possible I can get her more muscular and stuff? I know I can deworm her real good and immunize her and fatten her up and get that coat shiny. I hope too I can get her muscle tone much better. When I said 14 or so hands I was guesstimating.

She said she would take 500 but I don't know or think its worth that much not sure. Will have my dad go with me to look at her. We will indeed ride her and stuff a good 30 mins to an hr before we decide. Also, I got to make sure I want something that small. I think for me being 5' 11 205, I might need to go with something at least 14 to 15 hands minimum. But I definitely plan on fattening her up and bulking up as well. You think she will be able to get much thicker?

Check her teeth, she looks quite young to me, she has that babyish look to her face that is normaly outgrown by the time they are 4!
