I accidently stumbled upon Roscoe- I went to the auction not planning on buying anything but when I saw him I just couldn't say no.
I had my boyfriend come bring me a trailer..I drove my car. Obviously I wasn't planning on buying lol
I paid with a $100 bill for him and got change back.
I felt so bad for the poor guy. The pink halter he is wearing in that picture is a weanling size halter that a mini I just sold had been wearing.
He loaded right up in my trailer and I soon discovered he had all the ground manners put on him already. I've contacted his breeder and just as I thought, she put lots of work on him and then sold him to the people who brought him to the auction who evidently didn't know about worming horses and trimming hooves.
Once I got him home, I gave him a handful of Strategy- he took one bite and walked away...his little belly just couldn't take anymore.
It's so rewarding to see him out running around, throwing bucks, and being a BABY! Something he greatly deserves! I've put a lot of money into that horse in groceries including a $300 vet bill.
If I can place him with a new owner, I'd readily take on another baby, but I don't have the room so for now he's on the market and will get some minimal saddle breaking this spring if I still have him.
I see thankfulness in his eyes everyday (in both the brown AND blue one haha)
