She is so beautiful.
When I was horse shopping (a little over a month ago) I found my perfect horse & almost didn't buy him. He is a sorrel q/h, 15.1HH, 8 yrs old. I thought he was too plain looking.
So glad I purchased him. He is amazing!!!
And so is this girl. I dont think I could re-sell her if it was me.
Congratulations.

It's gonna kill me if I do end up selling her. I already adore her and her non-marish attitude. She isn't clingly to all the geldings, it is perfect! I just hope I won't be too big on her if I decide to keep her.. She is 14h and I am 5'7..

I have a problem with getting horses in my criteria.. I absolutely love arabians and crosses though, so I will settle for her. The only problem is that we don't know if she is sound for riding because of her foot. Even if we can't ride her, I would be 100% fine just having her around, she is such a pleasure to spend time with

I actually think she's a much better fit for you than a draft cross
Is she sound?
Depends on what was damaged really.

I just know that she sliced open above the hoof and almost died. She has 2 scars that go down into the hoof. Above the hoof is slightly larger than the other feet, but I think it's just scar tissue.

The vet will be out next week, and we will ask if she needs xrays/etc to determine if she's sound. Or I could call the vet who did the surgery and see what was exactly affected

On a different thread about her injuries, one person said her horse stayed sound after a similar injury, and another said her horse was never sound again.

Praying for the vet check to go good.. I really love this horse

We had a TB that did a similar injury when it got its foot in a wire snare that some poachers had laid along the edge of our field one night - he was never lame on it once it had healed so hope you are as lucky with this mare

I really hope so. She has so much personality and I bet she would be such a joy to ride. Her thing yesterday was to rear/hop and yell at a horse at the fence, take another few steps and repeat it. She almost looked like she was doing advanced dressage moves. I've never had a horse that really expesses themselves like she does. I loved how when we were walking around she was acting a lot more energetic, but as soon as I tied her, she lowers her head and naps.

Whenever I walked out of sight into the barn to get brushes, she would perk up and start whinnying. She has the cutest little call too. And now I'm in school, just waiting to get home to start working with her. Ughhh. Horse problems I tell you!
