    My daughter and I called in at the sales on the 22nd of july this year, just for a look mind you.....we came home with this gorgeous old clydesdale mare called Betsy.....

    She was very thin and lethargic, she made great progress with small feed and hay over the next few weeks, after a month she was allowed out in the big paddock with paddock mates, made for a very happy old girl....Betsy is 24.....today she is looking pretty **** good but still has more to put on for me too be completely happy with he weight.....

    Nice job!

    I'd like to see a photo of her face too. As eating is her favourite time of day (every horse agrees), it's okay if she has a mouthful of something when you snap the photo.

    It's amazing what groceries can do! She looks much better and seems to be enjoying the favorite horsey hobby--eating!

    Looking good?

    Why do you need a photo of her face? @mooselady

    What a strange question:confused:

    I don't NEED a picture of her face, but much like people, seeing a horses face gives you a chance to see the personality. Seeing as this is a "look at my pretty horse thread" then I wanted to see her pretty face.

    And it was worth the wait, she is a pretty girl(y)

    I was just curious. No need to become offended...

    :rolleyes:

    Also her face is in the first photo. Not sure if you missed that one ;)
