That is the original post.
Ok, so he arrived. He's skinny, his feet are messy but she has been trying her best to get a farrier out to do them for ages so she gave me money to get them done by my farrier on the 6th (still 2 weeks away :/...). I know it looks terrible but she's not a mean person and she's got a lot of problems in her life at the moment....It does not matter he is now leased to me where he will be loved and spoilt and I'm confident he will peak up in weight then when his feet are done i'll start doing some lunging. Right now he's settling down, tomorrow i'm going to lunge my mare after work then spend some time grooming him and getting him comfortable with me as he's hard to catch (he always was but no horse is allowed to be hard to catch with me so it will be worked on) He'll get into the routine of being up at the gate in the morning and up again in the arvo (smarty will help teach him this) They've got on well, she's taken over dominance but i'm still keeping an eye on them.
Now the thing to focus on here is getting him looking good again :) And I will succeed. I've seen a lot worse infact we all have.
