With his old owner.
He looks so sad.... D:
Only in that before photo you cannot see the six months over grown feet with Amish shoes hammered on. He couldn't retract his penis because it was so dirty and he had an infection. The vet came out to clean it, even before I bought him I paid to have it done. He got two peanut size beans out of it. Poor guy. That crap he's standing on? That was his feed. A disgusting rotten round bale covered in mold. His owner fed him "once a week" on "home made" grain. I wouldn't doubt if that consisted of cheerios and instant oatmeal. He also rode him to "hell and back" in a 60 pound western saddle. Note, the man I bought him from was all of 6 foot 5 and 350 pounds.
These photos are from today.
He's out of shape, and lacking some muscle. He's had nearly the whole winter off. Between some lameness and the terrible weather we've had like up until the last week we've not been able to do much.
But he's well fed. Can't you tell? Poor guy is starving nearly to death.
I think I'm doing something right, 'eh?
I thought I was going to have to sell him. I had a potential buyer come out and look at him a few weeks ago. He bucked like a bronco when asked to canter.
I rode him and he was fine. So I guess he wants to stay. Lol. I am not going to sell him, I'm back on track with my finances. Hurray!
