Hi everyone! So I bought a 2004 16.0 hand registered APHA mare a couple of days ago. I have known this horse for about a year and a half and finally was able to buy her from a friend. She was put with a stud in September (5-21). Apparently they were spotted breeding a couple of times. Then after that, she was moved and boarded at a private place. When I got her a couple of days ago, she is underweight....I can see and feel her ribs through her winter hair. What does everyone think. No negative comments...I know september is very late for a horse to be bred. She has not been seen by a vet or checked to see if she is in foal or not. What should I do at this point. The vet will be out in 2-3 months for vaccinations. Here is the link to the stud and the attached picture is my mare.
