Awww...poor old guy!!! Can't wait to see how he looks with proper care, though! He looks like he's a really nice looking horse under all that skin and bone!

Oh my! What makes people think it's ok to have any animal and not feed them? I am sure glad you found him and can't wait to see him in a few months. He looks releived to be in a place with some food.

Hes adorable! My first horse was bowed and fired too. It took him several months but eventually returned to full competition. Im certain your boy will make a full recovery!

That's very sad

Do you know his story, why did that happened to him?

The only thing I know about him is that he was raced ( has tattoo ) and must have bowed his tendon and so they pin fired him so that he could keep going without any pain :( Thats just what im thinking... Im going to look into his tattoo for more information ! I honestly thought he looks more like a trakehner or a trakehner/tb cross more than just a regular tb. ESPECIALLY by the way he moves.. Its funny to see this boy just looks so odd with how skinny he is. He has the most amazing personaity too! HE LOVES kids, and always wants attention but is very very exhuasted :/
