New Rescue

Myself and a couple other girls recently rescued this horse from a slaughter auction. These are some pictures of the day we brought him home!

Mostly because we were so indecisive that we almost didn't come home with anything! He was one of the last horses to come out so we bid on him. Plus he was within our budget (he cost around 450) :)

Aww! What a cutie! When I saw the first picture of him, the first thought that came to my mind was Standardbred. Don't ask me why. :)

Be's so handsome! Good for you girls for buying him.
Do you know anything about his background?

Not at all... we were told he was QH but we think there's something (or multiple somethings) else in there.

Oh good for you guys! I can't believe the poor guy was going to go to slaughter.
He seems so happy and he looks like just a doll!

He's a handsome boy, and he has very kind eyes. Do you know how old he is? Do you have any names picked out? What are you planning to do with him? Good job for rescuing a horse. =)

Something about him reminds me of Cricket... The way he's built... His legs. I have no clue. He's very cute!
