Caught this gem on the Houston,TX craigslist… Wow. And check out the rope girth at the flank.
Bless this poor animal
Thoughts on HF Mobster?
Legs are a little too straight in the back, slightly butt high, mutton withers. His legs in general look too small for his body.
n/h mare being bred. https://www.facebook.com/millerhalterhorses.miller they have a few n/h ones being bred.
Work was NOT fun today. Everyone was having issues. We had to treat a yearling that’s at an auction for possible Equine Herpes Virus. All we know so far is that it is a virus, and highly contagious. Which, is NOT good since the yearling is literally in a full barn of other yearlings for the auction. It went from having a 105 temp to a 100.1 temp overnight. Omg, while I was running fluids on this possibly HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS horse, visitors were at the barn and would come up and pet his face, idiots. If you see a horse being treated and you don’t know why, DON’T TOUCH IT. Of course we told them that he had a virus and they need to go wash their hands with hot water now.
And then we got a call from a woman who’s mare died.. This mare had been dead for a while, she also had a 3 week old foal >.> So we had to wrestle this foal (who was an absolutely stunning grullo colt) and run him some fluids cause he was pretty dehydrated. The owner decided to put the foal on foal lac, instead of finding a nurse mare. Hopefully the lil guy will make it cause he’s gorgeous and has already been sold for 5,000.
Another foal we had to go look at was just awful omg. 3 days old, and the mare kicked it in the eye. Absolutely adorable sweet filly, let me tell you. Her sister sold for 75,000, so it has value. This poor thing. Her eye was so bad, once we washed it off we could actually see what happened. Her cornea and conjunctiva were completely torn apart, and it looked like she had a tear in her retina, her eyelid was ripped off, and she had blood in her posterior chamber. When we called the owner about it he said that if she will look bad or “deformed” that she should just be put down. Like wtf. The barn manager said he’d keep the filly himself if the owner wanted to put her down.
And then we did a foal check on a baby who was born at midnight, and the mare isn’t developing enough milk. The mare is also getting sick, apparently she did that last year with her last baby, too. This baby was so sweet but I said he should be named “Crazy Legs” cause it has angular leg deformities in it’s front legs. It’s not insanely severe, but it needs to be corrected if it’s going to live a productive life.
But yeah, some other small side jobs but there were so many babies today. I just want to sleep now.
This guy is claiming to be a horse trainer

And wtf is in that horse’s mouth. He’s very unhappy
2 year old colt - $500 (Decatur, IL) X
this baby is in desperate need of a farrier. he is halter broke but that’s about it. he needs a good home with someone to take care of him.
If Millie isn't pregnant, she is severely overweight and could founder. May I ask where she is in her training? It isn't my place, hence the anon, but I'm just a little concerned is all! (:
Yes, I know. Since she wasn’t this fat when I officially claimed her as mine after her bitch ass owner abandoned her, I’m pretty sure she is pregnant. But if not she’ll be put to work and on a strict diet to lose some weight. And what do you mean by where she is? Like, what does she know or where is she at? Cause she’s on my land, and is just now starting to learn to walk on halter and lead. I don’t know much about her besides the fact she was in a pasture with 5 stallions for over 6 years and hadn’t been handled in all those years. Check out her tag to learn more about her.
millie is such a cutie pie. are you planning to do anything with her once you figure out if she's preggers or not? or will she be a pasture pet?
I do plan on saddling her at some point. Not anytime soon, though. But if/when she has a foal and once it’s weaned off I’ll start some saddle work with her and see how she does.
