    It's been a couple months since Sammy came back home. I picked him up June 10th from the lady I sold him to about a year before. She couldn't afford him anymore and it showed. To keep a long story short. He's on free choice, 24hour turn out with my girls, as much hay as he wants, pulled his shoes after he went three feet lame because of the crap job farrier work and after 3 months home he's finally sound and healthy enough to ride again.
    On top of bringing him home underweight he was claustrophobic after living inside a stall for 3 months with 8 days out a month from my understanding, turned out alone which made him pace and he dropped pounds so he was no longer turned out, and she poured all the wrong feeds into him. I feel terrible that I let that happen and that he went to someone that turned out to be the wrong person. Since I own my own place and no longer board I can afford him plenty this time around. I'm thrilled to have him back and he's just as connected to me now if not more than he was before.
    I'm not trying to blame her. I just don't think she truly knew what she was getting into no matter how hard I stressed what a huge commitment he is, specialty hoof care, health, weight...He's a big job. Easy when done right but he'll break your bank if you let him slip.
    I took him out yesterday for a catch up shoot and jumped on him bareback and bridleless. He remembered his tapping cues (two finger taps for canter, one for trot), he stayed under me, lifted in his corners...he was amazing. We played tag which used to be his favorite game and he got snuggles, ear rubs and a hose down.
    Those are such beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing!

    I'm glad you got him back and hope you keep him. I really am amazed at what you can do with him. I'm not brave enough to get on a horse without a halter at the very least!

    He's a great horse and he's not going anywhere. I need to refit him for a saddle and I have to order him a new rain sheet. She kept his old one because ya know 87 inch blanket will fit any horse. Haha *mumble grumble*

    Probably one of the most beautiful connections I have ever seen. I hope to one day have this kind of bond with my boy teddy.

    I'm going to take a video on Monday and see if I can capture it. If the weather allows and depending on how he's doing I might take his gear off and run with him but I dunno yet. I'm hauling to a place big enough for him to kick up his heels and still play his games. I hope it's not busy.
