Admiral, my TB rescue

Woo.. long long story short...

Admiral is a 3 year old Thoroughbred gelding i rescued. He was deemed too slow for the track, and cast off to a horse trainer where he was starved. Then, he went to a man who fed him corn and bread.. and kept him in a 10x10 and didnt treat his injuries (read my journal for more info on that) I paid 500.00 for him and he just came home and i took lots of pictures when i was out today.

He is so goofy and so sweet.. i took a nap in his hay and he ate around me like a gentleman! LOL!

Awwwh <3

Nyurr goof!!

So thin :(

Sooo thiiin :(

Cant take a good picture of him.. he follows me everywhere, LOL!

I'm soooo glad you rescued him!!! He's SO skinny!!! :(
Make sure you let us know how he's doing!!!! And send some more pics when he's put some more weight on so we can see his progress! :)

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
