Nathan, who sadly was put down recently due to the discovery of a horrible degenerativem old knee injury/issue. He was a rescue, and had a good couple of years with my mother before it got bad enough that the vet suggested that he be put to sleep. Apparently both front knees joints were trying to fuse, or something along those lines, so he was chronically lame and couldn't be ridden.
What he looked like shortly after my mom rescued him, and amazingly this is MUCH cleaner then when he arrived. He was also a couple hundred lbs underweight.
And the next summer, shortly before he passed on.
And Lurch, another of her rescues. He's an off the track thoroughbred that was up for auction, and she outbid the slaughterhouse buyer by $50 bucks and got him. So a $300 horse, quickly turned into a $5k horse once he turned out to have a broken bone in his ankle, with a floating bone chip that required surgery and a cast.
The year she brought him home. He was super dark, and funny how she thought he wouldn't grow much more. LOL. He's almost 17 hands now.
And more recently
You can eat grass later! Its picture time!
