My plans for him are to fatten him up figure out what is causing the head tossing, trail ride with him this summer and possibly sell him and put the money towards my dream horse (If I ever find him).

Even though he isn't conformationally what you're looking for, you may have found him He is a cutie

What a great story for Music. Sounds like he knows a lot and is well trained - just ended up in place that has no business owning horses.

This is a bit OT but, a lady on my local forum volunteers for a 501(3)c horse rescue. She and her 13 yr old son pulled two young horses out of two feet of muck on Sunday. There were six horses involved but the woman had moved the other four to the neighbors which is a different address. That meant they couldn't be confiscated because the warrant was only for the address where the two young horses were.

To reiterate, the two young horses were so weak they were stuck in the deep muck, elst they'd've been next door, as well

I could never be involved in rescues because I would be in prison -not the county lock-up - prison. I would not be able to sit on my hands while some nitwit nutcase was screaming in my face there was nothing wrong with their horses.

Many kudos to you for taking this fella and good job getting the papers. I did that with my Arab many years ago. The lady that was starving him refused until I said I'd be happy to turn her prim & proper suburbia self in, if she didn't hand his papers over. Whoa! embarassed in front of her neighbors! Can't be having that Turned out Streeter is old Polish-bred Arab Royalty

Sound like a happy ending for one chapter and a new beginning for another.

Sounds to me like he needed you...I'm a firm believer that what goes around comes around.....so I'm betting he'll be a great horse for you.

I hope both you and Music all ways play in tune......

Good on you, and lucky Music for you taking him. I am betting he will be a great one too....but...I would not "fatten him up" too much......shape him up would be more like it! He looks a but plump already! Looking forward to updates on him!

Hi guys thanks for the vote of confidence with Music. Sometimes things just come along right out of the blue. I certainly wasn't looking for a horse yesterday LOL. I did some searching on the internet last night of past owners and found a few more pictures of him that were taken just before this woman bought him. He looked happy and well cared for. I hope to return him to the same condition. Here are a couple of those pictures I found.

Id say you got a heck of a deal. He is a nice looking gelding. And seems to have a sweet disposition by seeing that picture with the little girl. (And look at the shine on that coat!)

Wowzer, the pic of him with the little girl is pretty impressive; it's obvious Music was very happy with her.

I agree, looking at his sale pics, that he probably doesn't need a lot of added weight a much as he needs conditioned

Me thinks you really fell into something great
