before and after on rescues.

I havent posted to much lately, but we've took on a couple of rescues this year.
the first would be Henry. he is a Pryor mountain mustang out of Wyoming. he has a pretty rough background. the lady i got him from said the original owner in wyoming would tie his head to the rafters and beat him. after looking up the original owner and his training videos, and speaking to him over the phone. i have since found out the lady i rescued him from was the one that beat him.

Henry used to be pretty broke. and you could do anything with him. i have the videos of the man training him. once we got him he was skitting, and underweight, the lady told us to be careful because he would randomly chase her down and try to attack her. and that he lashed out. he doesn't do that here so i have no clue what she is speaking of.

here is henry when we first got him. on December 29th.

Thank you for taking in these two stunning horses. I'm know their lives have changed for the better.

Henry's story is unbelievable, poor boy. Love how happy and full of life he looks in those recent photos.

What a sad story about Henry. I'm glad that he has a safe home now!

I saw these pictures of him a few days ago and I've been wanting to draw him ever since. Something about him is so fluid and your pictures are beautiful. Is there any way that I could have permission to draw some of your pictures? It would probably just be sketches and boring studies but I have to ask first, especially if anything ever turned into something more finished.

I am here to learn! :)

thanks so much guys! Henry is a wonderful horse. such an amazing and sweet character after being through such trauma.

Our own rescue...

Hey, what you're doing with these horses is amazing. I'm so passionate about rescues. In fact I started a "horse rescue" project on my brother's web site and if you have a success video of one of these guys and wanna post it, e-mail me :)
Anyway I'm not sure if we're allowed to post our own rescues but I thought some people might like this one. Here's Dolly, we got her, half-wild, in Feb 2011.


Here she is in Feb 2012. Just a couple weeks after I started her under saddle. Try to guess the breed???




Here's a vid of her full story if you're interested..
