I saw her pics of her improvement, and you've done so great with her! I am hoping my little filly makes such a quick improvement!

What a beautiful girl! I just love her markings, they are so unique. :)

Can't wait to see her progress, I'm sure she'll just flourish under your care.

She was looking for a companion/riding horse, and Gulliver isn't as interested in kiddos as I'd hoped. So it was a great situation for him with a good friend.

Oh awesome!! :)

So I have come up with my #1 registered name pick.

Bon Temps Jubilee

Calling her Emmy for short. Any thoughts? Like it, hate it?

Congrats!! I'm sure she'll just flourish with some TLC!

I have a huge addiction to horse shopping too. Ugh, what a pain... LOL

It sickens me that people will try and sell an underweight, wormy horse...and the main reason the horse is underweight is because they failed to buy dewormer! When I sold horses, I made sure I got all the vet records, coggins, dewormer, feet ect. up to date to give the horse and its new owner the best possible start. Some people just don't give a flying fart!

I'm glad you got her. She has an uber pink face! She will look great once you clean her up with some propper care.

She DOES. Luckily, it is turning out not so uber pink with some sun care. She was badly sun burned out in the open pasture.

It actually was a very complicated situation where I ended up giving way more than I should have. BUT. I think she's going to turn out worth all the effort. Sounds to me like, from what was passed on info wise, that the breeder who sold her had way too many horses and didn't mess with them.

She definitely has needed time to see that humans aren't a bad thing.

impulse shopping

Your brain on too many drugs may lead to impulse shopping, studies propose. With too much dopamine on the brain, customers might be more subject to impulsiveness, in shopping and even in more destructive pursuits.
