Is it just me...
Ok, so I was looking on and I found this horse for sale. Is it just me or is this horse very emaciated looking? It seems strange to me that this person would put a possibly negelcted horse online for anyone to see....

She does look very underweight to me - especially her neck and hindquarters. Poor girl! I hope she gets a good home.

If you look at the bottom it says she is posted by a recue facility?? I wonder if she is new to them, or if they are not so great??

She links to a rescue:

Habitat for Horses

Most of the horses look in good condition. Maybe they just got her?

^Oh I didn't see that.

Habitat for Horses is a pretty darn good one, imo, so I'm sure she didn't get in that condition on their watch, rather is recovering with them.

Awww, they look like they have some nice ones. I'll take Tilo!! Tilo - Habitat for Horses - Equine Protection Organization - Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Horse Education and Adoptions

That's good. :) I thought that might be the case, but I didn't have time to look at other horses at the time. Good to know its a good rescue :)

She does look quite underweight, but it may be that she was neglected and the horse rescue facility just got her

HFH would not let a horse get in that condition. I bet she just arrived there or is still going through her recovery process. They are one of the best rescue facilities there is
