2 new horses

OK well.... we took in 2 more horses the paint mare is registered and is 8 her name is isis, but should be named hoover. She eat ANYTHING, and then we have chip aka mr skinny!! the guy that had him just gave up and moved, well chips teeth look like they never been floated. I have the vet and dentist and farrier coming tomorrow. They both are amazing horses. they both are broke I was told chip is around 16 but who knows, I will find out tomorrow. I cant wait to see what he looks like in a few months!! right now he gets senior feed with some red cell and soaked alfalfa 2x a day. It makes me sad someone would let him get this way but he now has a forever home and a girl that LOVES him.[ATTACH]isis.jpg[/ATTACH]

Is Chip a thoroughbred? I think once you get him up weight, you'll have two very good looking horses on your hands.

He is a Arabian, I saddled him and hopped on for about 3 min he was amazing!! I cant wait til he gets weight on, I was scared I have heard so many Stories about Arabians, he was a little skittish at first but now when he sees the truck coming into the gate he is waiting for me to roll window down to get a treat!

Be aware that once you start feeding up and he starts putting condition on he'll probably have a lot more energy which may make him behave differently under saddle.

Good luck with them! Isis is lovely.

Arabs can me skiddish, I know one darling lovely girl but she has her moments like scaring herself with he water bucket, refusing to go near a block of ice and her need to be tied really long so she can stand far away from the wall, that said with the right rider she's an angel (mostly).
Chip is HANDSOME (I mean both are I just have thing for greys.) it looks like he can bow? or is he just itching his leg in a graceful manner?

Idk if he can bow he started to walk off and I said whoa, assuming he was going to keep walking and that's what he did. LOL I was like OK your posing! Thanks. Yeah I was worried about how he will be when he is up to weight.

Please don't try to ride poor Chip again til he gets some weight on him. He may not even be able to handle having his teeth floated yet, I've rescued a couple skinny ones like that and the vet wanted them to gain some weight before he'd try to work on them.

Wow, they are BOTH gorgeous! My two favorite breeds! I dare say Chip is older than 16, but he looks like he could have been a National Champion in his day!

So glad they have a good home now!

Yes,he may change personality wise once he gets back in condition. My daughter has two like that, one is a beautiful grey QH, she was thin and very lethargic, the first time my daughter took grain to her,she acted like she had never seen it before. She looked so bad, I was not very impressed with her at all, now that she has gained weight, she is a gorgeous horse!!! Simply stunning, and such a sweetie, she's the first one to come up when anyone goes out. And the sorrel she bought at the auction has turned out very pretty as well. I will have to get before and after pics. Good luck with your new babies.
