BUT somehow.... the day I first beheld my Khaiyaann... I was captivated... enchanted... and fell in love right there at first sight. He was being neglected at the time, starved, and living knee deep in his own mire so he didn't look so good then... But our eyes connected and right then and there I fell in love with him. I'll post a pic of how he looked when I first laid eyes on this beautiful soul. He looked so sad and so miserably skinny. :(

When we first met

This is my boy the day I first laid eyes on him and fell head over heels in love with him. He was so skinny and he looked so unhappy, but there was some kind of connection when our eyes met.

Yes, I too think he was very sad when I met him. I'm lucky to have him because he's turned out to be such a wonderful companion!!! My vet says he appreciates me, and that he remembers how bad his life was before I came along. But ya know, at some point this horse was dearly loved. He knows high level dressage! So he went from being a high dollar, well mannered Arabian to somebody's neglected and starved backyard ornament - from riches to rags. My vet says that this often happens to old horses, and that makes me sad.

It is very sad that this happens to so many horses. But so true, once the kids get older they loose interest and the horse is the one who suffers and gets thrown away.

I know I've seen it more than once, and I just can't wrap my mind around it. I knew a man In N.C. who bought a mare for his grandkids who lived out of state, and that poor mare sat there on a 2 acre lot all alone - never touched or interacted with. They lived a couple of houses down from me, so about 8 months into it I finally just knocked on his door and asked if I could groom and feed his horse. He let me, and I did for 7 years until I moved away. When I left I asked if I could buy her and, sadly, he said no. During the 7 years that I took care of her I never once saw anybody anywhere near her or her pasture other than myself. How sad.
