I'm considering adopting this guy from Frog Pond Draft Rescue and wanted some input on him. This will be our last horse. We will be full. We are putting on three more stalls (a large run in that can be converted to stalls if needed)to make six stalls all together. We will have Annalie, Willow, Davinci (if all works out well), Mystery, a draft and possibly Mystery's foal (if she is pregnant). We have made a rental agreement with a neighbor to let our horses graze two acres of his land during the summer months. We've been wanting to ad a draft to our herd since we moved here. So this guy may be the one.....
Here is his story:
His mother was a rehab of the evil big horse club. She is a HaflingerXBelgain cross and came with JJ by her side when she was taken in by Frog Pond. His mother was successfully rehabbed, with a lot of work and JJ was adopted out. JJ got sick so his new owners moved him to their garage to help nurse him back to health. The teenage daughter would go out and let JJ sleep in her lap. Well needless to say, JJ got bigger but thinks he's a 10 pound chihuahua. He was returned to Frog Pond because of his pushy attitude. When he gets scared he tries to jump into your lap.
JJ is about 16.2hh and is three years old. We would like to use him as a trail horse. If we cannot handle his training we are willing to send him to someone reputable. When he first came to Frog Pond he was mouth and had space issues but the director says he is doing much better.
