Well I've just aquiered two horses that havent been cared for at all. My brother inlaw just didnt know what he was getting into. So now im taking over caring for them untill they can find them a new home or a rescue that will take them.
I would like to know what I can do to help them become more friendly towards people they have been in a forest type area for almost two years with little grazing ( we just put up a new fence so they can graze) They were thin and sickly looking but are looking much better now. How do I gain their trust? They havent had much contact with people for the past two years. They have no shelter besides the forest and the mare has lice or something making her itch up on the trees and is getting bald spots on her face from it Im going to try to build some sort of shelter for them so that they can be put away.
Im a horse lover and can't watch it anymore, since animal controll wont take them im stepping in and going to do my best. Being away from horses for years I need as much advice as I can possably get!
