Our neighbors that are on the other side of our property are jerks! They throw full bags of garbage into our pasture! Not kidding. It's really not that bad, none of my horses have gotten hurt. But as a rescue they aren't going to look at the stuff and like might not. They are going to want "this horse WILL not get hurt here". My horses don't mess with the stuff but a curious guy like JJ just might!

I really like the looks of him. I would have the same concerns as you though, is he going to run me over? And he is big. Which would make it harder to hang onto him. Do you have a round pen? I would definatly, if you get him, and as soon as you do, do a TON of desensitizing him. Anything you see that is scary make him know that it isn't. Then I don't think you will have to worry about him running you over. Plus as you grow more of a bond doing that he won't run you over. My mustang when I first got him used to run me over because he was terrified of everything! Granted was only 14.2hh. I got used to moving fast to get out of his way and then it didn't take too long for him to stop running me over because he didn't want to hurt me.

I think it's going to be a matter of settling in. It sounds to me he is a bit frightened of new things. So it's going to be exposure city. We don't have a round pen yet. But like I said if I can't do anything with him I'm going to send him to a trainer.

I think it also might be the fact that he is being kept in a stall. When he gets here he'll be kept out and be able to come in out of the weather when he wants. I think my Annalie might be able to teach him some manners as well.

I'll play it by ear. If I feel like he is going to hurt one of us and I can't handle it I'll send him off to a trainer. I'm looking for some right now. Going to start e-mailing around. I'll require references though so it'll be a long process.

They just posted this on facebook though:

Happy almost over Wednesday all. We have an exciting announcement (drum roll please)..JJ has been adopted! Congrats to our very own Amanda!

Well, that certainly was fast! Most rescues that I know of require vet, farrier and personal references be checked first before anything else is done. They must have a really good feeling about you, then. I have faith in you that everything will turn out just fine in the long run...you'll just have to have patience.

KY- I've been pre-approved. I already sent in my farrier, vet and personal references. : ) They do require those things.

BackInTheSaddle- Yep! lol

Congrats - he's a very handsome boy. You'll have a fresh start with him - he can learn your rules just like grandkids learn that the new teacher's rules aren't grandma's rules... ha ha! He's a very fortunate horse and I hope you have lots of fun with him!
