Ok, next chance I get i'm bringing my boy home, went next door to see him today and he looks scared and depressed, now I know the humans wouldn't have done that, the mongrel horses have.
I walked into the paddock to see him and he didn't even have his michievous(sp?) twinkle in his eye, he was almost lifeless looking, he has cuts all over him, nicks from the barbed wire fence, BITE marks from one of the horses he's with, that BLED, and I know exactly which horse did it as he **** well did it in front of me! He has rub marks from his halter (I don't paddock my horses with halters at my house) he also has bits where the flash strap sits under his chin, that looks like the skin has been lifted off and put back on.
Said horse that bit him did it less than a metre away from me, and all Mitchell did was run away scared, I don't blame him that was a big bite! He tried to walk to me and to do that he had to walk past mean horse, and as he did so he sped up considerably to get past him, still walking but he did so a lot faster and relaxed once he was past him.
-I'm not leaving him there any longer than I have to he's coming home I'm not leaving my horse like that he's petrified.
On another note, this picture was taken a few weeks ago, on a day where he was being your typical Mitchell, playful and happy but seeing what he could get away with.
Any good? I know he is probably a bit too tucked under, but I'm working on that... Or rather, will be working on that, once my poor boy is back to himself. mitchell 2011 002.jpg
