Re: [RC] Neglected Arab - Chris Paus

Oh my gosh, bless you Belinda for saving that poor mare. I hope she pulls through. If she does, she'll be your grateful friend. I've got several rescue horses here. Once they come, they stay because I can't bear the thought of someone not taking good care of them.
I ride my stallion who is only 14.1H and 900 pounds and I'm a heavyweight rider. He's got really good bone. I think it all depends on how well she does as she recuperates.

This is not endurance related, but this group has the most knowledge to
answer my question.
If this e-maail does not make it through, I will understand.
I purchased a 16-20 year old arab mare yesterday at an auction. She was in
a meat pen, and extremely thin. Her eyes are what got to me, they are so
large and kind. Also her ears tip in so much, the tips touch.
She is about 13.3-14h, and her leg below the knee measures at 7".
Now here is my question, how much weight does anyone feel she could carry
once her weight is up to par? Right now she weighs, according to a weight
tape, 550 lbs.
I am just wondering if I would be able to trail ride her eventually, or
maybe my daughter, or should I prepare myself to sell her i n the spring?
It is just so hard after bringing a horse back that has been so badly
neglected, to sell them and not know what care they will recieve.
