Need guidance from you guys!

Ok so this mare is a rescue, the owner of it left it with the owner of my friends barn months ago. The owner of the barn said she has taken legal action and the horse is hers. She offered her to me due to her not needing another horse. I think she is a cute horse, sweet enough but i've only seen her once. She needs weight and her feet done.

These are the only pictures I have of her, she is a 6 year old TB about 16hh. She's the chestnut. Sorry in advance these are the only photo's they gave me of her. I know they're not the best photo's.

This is just me, but I would take her. When you get her feet done - let her go barefoot 1.) it's cheaper not to put on shoes and 2.) If she is barefoot then her feet will become stronger as well.

With her weight - I am not much help here.

But I mean if it is just her feet and weight that is her problem - why not take her?

Yeah, she's just in a bad situation right now. Not eating enough, standing in a dirty stall, hasn't had her feet done in three months plus. I know she is an English horse and they had started her in jumping but I don't know anything else about her.

I agree. As long as she has only those very fixable issues she'd be worth a shot. Snatch her up!

If the horse belongs to the BO now why is she letting the horse stand in a dirty stall? Why would she not feed it more?

Assuming it wasnt self care, why would she regardless? Not the horses fault the owner isn't paying but its not ok to leave it in a dirty stall and starved.

Because the BO isn't much of one... and thats being nice.
I just want to help but I've never rescued a horse.
The BO would just as soon take her and the other horse to auction and let them go to meat buyers, which I don't want too happen.

The two cents I'll throw in are that I would want confirmation that the BO truly does own the horse. We've seen some sticky situations here on the forum with BOs taking horses etc. You should also look into what the cost may be to feed an underweight horse and rehab her feet and of course a vet check before taking the horse on.

Thats something I am definitely going to looking to more because of course I don't want to be a good guy in a battle with a bad owner... I've already talked to my vet, farrier and trainer.

Well unfortunately I wont be taking her, after talking to the BO today she hasn't legally obtained the mare but is still trying to sell her. The "owner" of the mare is a real piece of work and it all seems like a whole lot of drama I don't want to bring upon myself. I did however call animal control soon after I pulled out of the property do too the state of this mare and many more on property, hopefully they can take action on the BO and the "owner".

That stinks, but at least you now know what the deal is before getting involved in it. Definitely the smarter decision in this case.
