my heart goes out to you all, I had a horse that was slashed with a stanley knife all accross his chest .he went out of his mind for 3 weeks had I not bred him I would have thought he had a bad temprement take care many hugs to you all.
I hate to hear about what happened to your guy. I don't know why people do things like this - it just makes me sick.
We've taken in some rescues - looks like a couple of them may really be nice horses. We shall see - it's just that they have trust issues that will need working through.
I don't know which is better to have around anymore. A horse that is loving and gentle that will walk right up to you, or one that is standoffish and hard to catch. If DJ had been as hard to catch as Junior (they were both in the pasture together), he'd probably still be alive right now...
