Things went differently than expected today. My grandma has been somewhat on the hunt for a new horse to put in with her pony to keep him company. We weren't able to find anything decent for a while, but recently, I saw a lady I know post on FB that she was giving away her mare for free to an approved home. So I got in touch with her, then told my grandma about the mare, and two hours later, we went to see the mare, and then only 30 mins after that, my grandma now has a new horses lol xD
Her breed is unknown. She stands about 13.3 - 14 hh and is 18 - 20 years old.
The lady saved her at an auction and has had her for the last month and a half roughly (I actually saw/met the mare a week after she was saved). This mare was once a kids pony who was just pushed to the side before being sent to auction. Her teeth were so bad the most she could do was drool, slurp up soft food, and that was about it. She also was nearly skin and bones, still had last winters coat, and in general, was in poor health. But in the last month and a bit of care and seeing the vet, getting her teeth done, and getting propper food, she's bounced back fairly well. She's already put on at least 100 lbs. She does have cushings, but it's so minor that it's nearly non existent.
The lady is also going to be sending along the food and pills that Delilah needs to give my grandma a good start with her. So we're all pretty excited for this lovely lady to arrive next week Sunday. She's super sweet and definitely needs someone to love on her. And now, she will be able to live her life out in a field with a little pony, eat all the grass and hay her heart desires, and get to be loved on by me, my grandma, and the little girl my grandma babysits at times.
I'm pretty excited to see this little lady really blossom under proper care once more.
