Well, I saw her. She wasn't in as bad of condition as in the picture. Apparently her last owners simply "didn't want to feed her". Her legs are straight, no splintering, no bad sway back... Her hooves are in mint condition, she eats like a champ, her teeth are good, especially for her age, her eyes are clear, there are no scars on her legs, no bumps that signalled melanoma, and other than being all around neglected she seems to be in great condition. We put her with a green broke to see how she is with other horses, and she backs down to her with the food, so maybe the previous owners simply didn't feed the horses, and when there was food, she got pushed off fairly quickly. My trainer did say that if I didn't get her, they would for their little girl. Which we did have the little girl sit on her, and Sariel didn't mind or move one bit.
I am having a vet come out today to check her over and get a professional opinion on her health.
She seems trained. She backed out of the trailer with no one leading her, she picks up her feet when you tap her leg, she turns, backs, and listens very well with her neck. She walks very nicely, but after walking her a little, she was more interested in the hay, grass and mineral block. She used to be a barrel racer, and trail horse or so we were told. I am confident that if I get an okay from the vet, that I can get her into tip top condition. If she turns out to be a bit fiesty, thats fine, all of the other horses I ride are, and I kind of like that challenge.
I have about 5 other horses to ride while she's rehabbing, so riding isn't an issue for me. I would like her to get well enough for me to do light pleasure riding. I'm hoping now that Quenchi is done breeding, I can hop on him. But nonetheless, I think she would be a great first horse.
Thank you everyone for your help! And helping me look for what I should (on my own). If I get the okay, I'm going to be taking progressive pictures of her, and keep all of you posted!!
