    Default My Cheeto is really a pretty gray mare

    I picked up a foster horse last Tuesday from the bushes and woods of Georgia. She was to be impounded by the Dept of Ag, so the owners agreed to give her to Sunkissed Acres and I kidnapped her and brought her to my farm for awhile ( with SKA's permission). Here she is the day I picked her up.

    Yesterday, we had temps in the mid 60s, so I gave her a bath. Look at this pretty girl that emerged from under all that dirt.

    She still has some stains from the red clay and of course she rolled after her bath but she still looks (and smells) so much better. She has had her teeth and feet done and the vet will be here tomorrow to check her over. Once she puts her weight back on, I think she will be quite the looker.

    I just realized that most of her pics have her nose buried in the grass. Poor thing hadn't seen grass in awhile.

    She is a very pretty girl, even Cheeto colored and needing some weight.

    cheeto? Ha ha ha ha ha.

    If that's how you treat animals that you kidnap, you can come to my barn and kidnap my mare. She's getting plenty to eat, but she could use a bath. Giggle.

    Good on you! She has a doll of a face and, with weight, and plenty of love and hugs she will be a complete joy to own. Just curious. . . have you renamed her???

    LOL. "Cheeto" is a very excellent way to describe a horse that's laden with southern red mud.

    She's going incognito.

    Hey, that sounds like a good show name "Incognito Cheeto"!

    Bird, she looks like a sweetie. Thanks for all you and Lori do to save these guys!

    WOW - what a difference! I ride a gray also and I always cringe when it rains, knowing soon after she will turn into a chestnut. Quic Silver works wonders!

    I didn't realize how seriously orange she was until you cleaned her off a bit

    Can't wait to see her sparkly, fat, and shed out in the spring
