The neighborhood stud hasn't caused anymore problems, but then again, no one has been in heat. That mare went to a rescue, but she looked MUCH better before she left, thanks to my daughter and I.

Yes, I know about auction horses, and have never bought one myself. On friday night, we went to the local one, and I was just so shocked and disappointed. When I used to go, many years ago, the class of people who went were so different. This placed looked like the tatoo capital of the world. Trashy, sleazy, low class looking people, with dirty, trashy looking kids. Not putting down those who have tatoos, it was just that they were all so trashy looking. Instead of sitting on the benches, they sat on the steps themselves, and just watched my daughter help me struggle to get up and down, because I can't lift my legs very high.

I saw a few very nice horses, first one through was a huge, fat, stocky sorrel gelding with lots of chrome. Supposed to be gentle for anyone. I loved him. I believe he sold for $675, a very pretty small QH or QPony, worked great in the ring, $475, and a big flea bitten mare looked to be a fabulous riding horse, $675. The night my daughter and her family went, when they bought Miracle, a lady was there with a flash light, checking all the horses eyes to see if they were dilated or not.

Do NOT ride her! There is no reason a horse in this shape needs to carry anything, let alone a rider. Not sure how anyone got a saddle to fit her or could even manage to sit on her. . She isn't just "a little on the thin side".

No one is riding her, my grandson who is 8 rode her one time bareback, and that is all, the day we looked at her, it was pouring, we didn't ride her, even to try her out. No one is planning to ride her anytime soon.

In her present condition there is a very good chance she is not in foal.
since someone is paying for her feed if I were you I would ensure the person who wants the foal understands this .
They may not want to continue feeding the mare and you need to be prepared to step in.
After reading the threads about the other horses and the lack of experience all parties involved have I think it is best she not be in foal.
Taking care of 3 horses recovering from neglect is enough trouble and keeping in mind the condition that mare is in there is a possibility of expensive vet care in the future.
I do hope everything works out as planned for you.
May I suggest reading different threads here on the forum and taking advice on foaling, feeding neglected horses, and training problem horses.
Keep asking questions and keep an open mind.
Good luck. Shalom

Yes, it has occurred to me, that she's not in foal, which is ok with me. The person who has offered to feed her is a family member who realizes this. I am prepared to step in, I have a steady income, and very little living expense. If all goes well, after her foal is born and once she is back in shape, I may send her to a trainer to brush up on her skills, if need be. My main problem there will be finding an honest one I can trust.
