Unforuntaley, I do not own Barney, but do I look had full responsability over him. When my old boy went, he was put in with a couple of other horses, and so I do not feed him anymore, but I groom him ect. I couldnt love him anymore even if he were my own pony.
He is 40 something years old, bay, and is a long list of different breeds. Feel free to hazard a guess.
When Barney first came to me [23rd of April 2007], he was a bit of a mess. He used to be a showjumper, and was kept in a stall 24/7 and fed oats. So yer.
Anyway, the jist of it was, he bolted, bucked, bit, kicked, reared, jumped over electric fences, bullied other ponies, spooked at EVERYTHING. But after over a year of steady work, breakthroughs and drawbacks, he is a lot happier pony.
On with le Pics!
Barney used to do a lot of galloping around..
Last Christams. That was a really rough patch for Barney. We had one bad incident and all my months of work where undone. It was hard trying to eveng et a picture of him.
