This made me laugh, as I do believe I did end up with two "special" need horses. Walka, who will never stand up for himself and just wants to be a good gelding , and Misty who has been isolated from other horses her entire life (she's now 12) and takes things way too far when with another horse.
But, I am hoping in time to allow these two horses to at least graze together in one of the pastures. They have been together in a large round pen , grass covered area since the attack for a few hours at a time grazing.
I could never trust them together where she could trap Walka again and injure him as she has already done. And since he never did stand up for himself, it is the general consensus around here that he never will.
