Here the new rescue and resident to the horse shelter where I'm volunteering. The horse is a romanian sport horse, 28 years old. When I've heard about it I was expecting to see a horse in a better condition. He was a lesson horse all his life. I'm amazed to see a horse in such a bad shape. I know that he's old but he's to skinny.
It hard to imagine that a career as a jumper and lesson horse can result in pasterns like those.
He is very calm, kind and responsive so it's very easy to work with him. Besides being to thin he has some pulmonary problems and his teeth needs floating.
We rescued the horse only to give him a home because they wanted to send him to slaughter. We're waiting to receive another one in the same condition.
