If that's a mare, what's that grey lump that's located about in the same area as a sheath?
I'm not sure what you're seeing. Maybe the grey's foot in the background.
Right there where the sheath would be. That ain't no foot~!!
I think it's the way her coat is laying in the photo. She's definitely a mare.
Maybe she looks like a he because she has fat deposit in front of her udder? she looks a bit overweight.
Yes, for sure. She's been eating free choice alfalfa for the last six years. Just been put on a diet and I'll continue with it, and get her working.
That's no fat deposit, and you can still see it in the second picture so it's not the way her coat is laying. That looks like it could be some form of hernia, or a cyst.
I'd most definitely have her checked for her diet, she has a cresty neck etc. Could prevent future problems with her. You said you were, sorry. Good idea.
The first pic shows a horse that is severely overweight. Suggest you don't adopt her without being fairly clear-eyed about the possibility of severe metabolic disease and laminitis leading to this animal not being usable. Horses this obese could have very serious problems. And they can be very challenging to SAFELY get the weight off them.
