The fact that she is on the smaller side really is not a problem for a youth or small adult. You also have the added benefit of nice breeding and her being young.

Please consider also posting on Arabian sites in their classified sections and also on Arabian Sport Horse sites as she looks to have little knee and a lot of extension and would make a great Arabian Hunter prospect. Try Arabianbreeders.net and arabiansinsport.org

Wishing you much luck with her sale.

Thanks for the input. She was underweight in the photos, but not by much she is still growing and itís not uncommon for them to loose a lot of weight when they grow. She is on Safe choice and has a full hay feeder 24/7. Iím not concerned about her weight considering her age. I will be showing her hunter pleasure but she would also be very nice for dressage. And her personality makes her perfect for kids. I have posted on a few sites with no luck, if you know of any I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I just stumbled on this thread, and have to interject that age has nothing to do with weight. Sure young horses vrw and need more feed to keep up with their metabolism, and older horses may need a different feeding program, but neither is an excuse for a horse being underweight.

Im realy not being rude. But how do you figure? any young horse i have ever been around or worked with lost weight before they grew. anything they eat goes up. once they stop growing they start to put on their real weight and fill out. Our 10 yo half arabian paint cross didnt fill out untill he was 6-7. because he didnt stop growning untill he was 6-7. untill then he looked underweight.

and just for referance- My horse is on a a very good grain and hay and i do not consider her underweight at all. These pictures were taken shortly afer i bought her and she has matured very well since then, and put on weight.

not to bust your bubble, but Safe choice is NOT a "good" grain as far as I'm concerned. It's every thing but safe in some cases. There are several threads on here about it maybe you coud search for them.

Since I have had Sonador since she was a yearling and I have worked with many babies., I can tell you that if she is growing she needs more food. No if, but, or. All the babies I have worked with never looked skiny a day in there life.

Please feed that horse. Or if she looks beter now, do yourself and your mare a favor and post new pics.

I strongly suggest getting more current photos to place in your ad.



And for the record there is nothing wrong with Safechoice. It is not the feed to use if you have a IR horse, I agree. But for the average horse it is a perfectly fine feed.

I feel sorry for this girl.... Shes only trying to sell her horse..... jeeze.... All these negative comments are SO un-needed. I believe if Im not mistaken TB's are hard to keep weight on so FYI guess what shes a TB! Chill... Its not like shes neglecting her horse....

Shes very beautiful and I hope you sell her! I'd totally be interested but shes a little short for me! Good luck... :)

Chances are, with her saddlebred breeding that she reaches 15-15.1H. She still has alot of growing to do. What size horse are you looking for? And how tall are you?

When selling a horse, you want to seem professional. Having pictures of an underweight horse will not likely encourage people to give her their money. Personally, I wouldn't buy her. Not only is it because I do Dressage but of her condition. I have seen a fair share of fit 2-6 year olds that weren't underweight. Her age is no excuse.
