    Awww... I want her. Poor girl is so skinny, but look how cute her head is! She's got a sweet, little dish face. The guy should just give her away to a good home. It's hard enough to get $250 for a 2 year old, FAT, unbroke grade horse.

    Hopefully someone in NC can upgrade her.

    She does have a beautiful face. She's only a 2YO, she could still top out over 15h with some groceries.

    Well, what are you waiting for? An engraved invitation? I'd take her and fatten her up if she could at least get part way to MA.

    I emailed. I already have about 4 horses here that were abandoned and cost more than I can afford.
    Sigh.

    Make sure and go look with your trailer. Poor, poor thing. I wonder what else they have on their property...

    Shea's mom. I think I am somewhat nearby, too. I can't take the horse, but if you need someone to trailer the poor dear, PM me!

    ETA -- Okay, she's in Mocksville, not Hickory... Either way... I'm a little over an hour from Mocksville, and still willing to transport if necessary. (Sorry, new to the area and still getting my bearings!)

    I hope you can help her ... and completely off topic, one of my favorite comics, John Reep, is from Hickory!

    I hope this was a rescue that is being moved on, and that's the reason she's so skinny. I think I see a power pack wormer in your future. She's cute though.

    Have you got her yet?

    Who's trailer is she in, who's farm is she at?

    Poor thing- she looks sooooooooo sweet. Looking forward to seeing the photos when you have her fattened up. <enable, enable, enable>

    I want an update also! Best adventure of my life was picking up my own CL skinny girl. I'll be glad to enable or chip in $ or whatever is needed.

    Ok, I talked to them. they bred her and sold her to someone. The other people are the ones who let her get too thin.
    They had to buy her back. I think these people will take care of her, so I am not going to persue it, No, I am NOT, no.... no.
    i have a 29 year old gelding abandoned here 7 years ago, a 12 year old left here by the owner and just paid to put down a horse with shhivers who was also abandoned.
    I am going to be a few miles from there tomorrow.. damn.
    I really do think the owners are taking care of her.
    sigh.
