Emirah is a very hard keeper =( this was taken when we got her. They're both rescues. I want a younger horse but I can't let these girls go to another horrible owner

Beautiful! I love arabs. They are not super old...you should have several years with them. For the hard keeper...what are you feeding and have done? Teeth need floated? Add an oil into the feed. I use a weight gainer supplement from feed store and i add black oil sunflower seed to the grain mix. My old guy (20+...we're not sure exactly how old) is a super hard keeper and does ok with those added in. Here's a pic of my arabian

This was his first time with a saddle. I need to get some better pics

Teeth at floated need to take them in March and have them done again...I'm feeding 14% feed with beet pulp and a little wheat bran (they love it) and some veggie oil. (1/2 cup) I also put a handful of molasses also. A lot of Suva I know but I only do it in the winter. Summer, I have NO problem keeping weight on route of them. They both los in the winter. I've wanted arabs zinc I was 9yrs old and my mom never thought I was responsible enough for a house so I waited and bid my time til I got married. Then he let me get one. =) I wouldn't trade her for the world. I've had her for three years an I luv her. I want to breed her but I don't want to just toss $500 into the air. Lol
