I haven't been on for a long time. A lot has changed. Animal control contacted us and we started taking in rescues. We just really got our hands full.
Two horses, a mare and a gelding, were being starved. There was hay and water just outside of their reach and the person would not feed them. Also dogs were tormenting them. Another mare, a young standard bred, went without feed for 8 days. The last 3 of those she got out and ran the streets of a town. She got cut above the eye, and on both front feet. Another mare 5 year old was going to be shot by a husband cause he was mad at the wife for buying her. Well, they are here.
The standard bred still has to be tied out. She is afraid of her own shadow, She has gained now about 75 pounds and her coat is starting to shine. She goes from the barn to a tie out. If you try to lunge her she will hit the end of that rope and drag you and fly back into the barn.
The other 2 are now pasture horses. The mare has gained over 300 pounds ( it took a year) and went from ears back and kicking to please love one me. The gelding really feels his oats. Now it is time to find homes for them. Gonna be really picky on that.
We have 20 head and can't take any more. We do this all on our own and ask for no help. The worst part is the farrier bills.
They all are happy horses and we love each one.
