New Rescue
5 Attachment(s)
This is cooper... He is supposed to be a registered 2 yr old Quarter Horse... For some reason I just dont think that the papers are his... just saying.. but anyways.. got him on April 1st.. ( maybe it was an april fools joke bout him being a 2 year old ) He is a colt ( hasnt dropped ) and is very skinny... She said his bloodlines are the reason for him being small.... they start out small then fill out fast... :/ In some of the pictures he looks less skinnier... but that was becuase i hadnt started brushing off his winter fur.. once I did it looked like he dropped a bunch of weight :(

WOW what a lil handsome fella, Good luck! have fun with him!

poor guy. Hopefully he can recover quickly with medical treatment and good food. Maybe he has been gelded so he won't drop. He looks very young but could be from malnutrition

He's a cutie. :) He's just small from malnutrition I'll bet. My horse was a rescue case also; he was really small, but he has filled out nicely now.

Wow, my guess would be a 9 month old =/ Otherwise, he's cute! What's your plans for him? Undersaddle?

He's very sweet looking. If he is registered, shouldn't the papers indicate his markings? He has a ways to go for sure, but I think he'll be quite pretty in short order with good care.

Just as an aside, and maybe it's just because of the hair, but I think that halter is too small for him.

Aww..poor guy! I can't wait to see him later this summer as he gets some good food in him. I agree, he looks like he's only maybe 9 months old.

Poor thing! Hope he fills out and gets some weight on him. I don't see how someone can let a horse get to that point. :(

2?????????? No way. That is one SMALL 2 year old. I bet he'll be cute once he fills in.
