Perusing a rescue page on fb out of morbid curiosity at what had been selected as needing rescuing from some feedlot in Zillah on the load that morning I stumbled upon this guy. Long story short I bought him based on these photos for $775. I knew he wouldn't be a treat to work with because there's no way a sound young horse like this gets to a kill pen by accident. He was...less than lovely, dangerous to most. Once upon a time I trained for a guy in the states who specializes in horses like this, I didn't have time to put the 60+ days of bootcamp on him so I shipped him to my old boss.
He's good now, but it certainly wasn't easy. I still don't have the time to finish him the way I want :(
Lemme know what you think! And if anyone here knows ANYTHING about appys and appy breeding and maybe a breeder he could have come from? I'm a racetracker really, I don't know much of the appy world.
And this is he and I on the rare chance that I have time to ride, we were galloping in very deep snow!
