I have to give you a bit of back story first. My best horse friend moved out to California-- she's from there originally, and was offered a job at an olympic level barn. She takes fantastic care of her horses; unfortunately, though, she had to leave them in someone else's care until she decided whether she was going to be in California permanently.
Long story short, the lady who is supposed to be watching them has pushed my friend's horses to the side and cares more for the people who are taking lessons from her. It's a sticky situation, and I went out to take some pictures of her horses so that she could decide who needs to come out to Cali with her.
She really wants me to take Blue, a Western Pleasure horse, because she needs to take her other horses back with her. He's about 10 years old, and has a sweet temperament, though he'll need a little work as far as training goes because he's out of practice.
The pink on his skin is an infection that could have been prevented had the care taker, well, cared, and I know that he'll need some weight.
What do you guys think of him? I'm hoping I can work her down to just giving him to me (since she got him for free anyway) and talking my hubs into paying the extra $80 it would be to board him. If all goes right, I'd love to take care of him. He's just so sweet.
