Of course, he could have looked like the "HunchHorse from Notre Dame" and we wouldn't have cared! He was getting the hell out of that situation. LOL But, we had a bonus because this is the type of horse you walk up to and actually FEEL how kind he is. He radiates an energy that draws you in. Something I can't well explain, I guess.
Even as much as he's been through, he allowed us tonight with nothing but me holding his halter to remove 6 stitches less than an inch from his eye. He shouldn't have trusted us from the things he's been through but he did.
