    Default Mare in foal in NC needs a serious upgrade. Update: Sold

    According to FB she has been SOLD.

    Saw this posted on the OTTB Connect Facebook page and thought I'd share it with the wider COTH community. Anyone know any resources? She's 3 hours from me and, sadly, I am in not in a position to help

    http://greensboro.craigslist.org/grd/4137177032.html

    In case the ad goes poof:

    15 year old mare. 16 hands, Expecting due in early spring. Easy to catch, Loads, Stands for farrier. Call Chad ***

    If we can't scrape together some COTH magic, we can at least get her some COTH jingles for a new home.

    Lexington? But in NC. Big jingles, she's too thin already and needs them!

    This is so sad I emailed him to try and get more info. Fingers crossed we can pull something together and get her out of there.

    There is a discussion about her on the OTTB Connect FB page.
    May be able to combine the effort:

    Someone on FB called on her and this was the info they posted:

    ok. I talked to "chad" - the contact for this. He's a trader, he just got her in on a trade a few days ago. She's supposed to be in foal, don't know to what or exactly when. Don't know about vaccination status. She doesn't have a current negative coggins. Supposed to be rideable. NO TATTOO - not registered. She doesn't seem sickly (according to Chad), just needs some weight.
    With the exception of 1 sock placement she is the chestnut version of an OTTB mare I used to ride. Total copy. I think that's why she's making me so sad.

    Well, I'm in. But can't we get the foal pinched off if someone will take the mare? We don't need another unwanted foal.

    PM me if someone can take her. I'm good for some $. She may or may not be a TB. If she was on the track, she'd have been tattooed but if she never went into race training, she might still be a TB. Who cares though, if she's in need?

    Horses can get all the way through their first start without being tattooed.

    Somehow the way she looks I don't think pinching the foal is going to do much except, well, pinch a pretty well developed foal. Her tummy looks too big and croup looks too soggy, I'd worry about a foal within a short time. Maybe it's a hay belly or parasite load though.

    Looks like she was being discussed on the NC Horse News FB page and a woman there bought her. Hope she is loved and on the way to being fat and happy.

    I used to live in the Lexington area of NC. Several of my friends there have been sharing this ad around facebook. They're already working on upgrading the poor girl.

    There you go. If that doesn't work, it's a secret group. PM me your name or email I'll add you to the group if you'd like. I friended the lady who took her (she offered, for anyone wanting to follow the mare's progress). She said she'll be coming home Tues.
