Don't know how it happened, but he's coming back.

So, let me start off by saying as happy as I am to possibly be seeing my big baby again (he's not really mine, he's just basically my best horsie friend), I can't help but feel bad for him..
Eiger is intimidating, yes. At 17 HH with dinner plate sized hooves, who wouldn't be intimidated by him at first sight? But once you get to know him, he s the sweetest horse you could ask for. He just takes a while to... Adjust.. I mean, heck I had to be around him for a couple months before gaining his trust, and starting in January I was in his stall grooming him every night, and he didn't care what I did. He was a good boy around me, things that I thought would spook him while I was in there wouldn't phase him (thank god, I would have been mowed down easily). He NEVER, not ONCE showed any sort of aggression towards me, or most other people. Now, back on track, since I'm guessing all of this sounds confusing.
Eiger has been for sale forever, and is constantly passed up. Welp, he seemed to have finally got his forever home! ... For about a week. A few days ago, the BO got a text saying they needed him gone ASAP, he was a danger to humans, etc. they said he ruined their stalls, kicks out at them, bites, all that fun stuff... What the heck happened to my good boy? I mean, he wasn't even like that when he first got here! I feel so bad for him, it's like no one gives him enough time to adjust.
I hope he isn't like that when he comes back, but if he is... Any suggestions? I know this is all jumbled up and probably confusing, I'm just so jittery and I honestly can't think straight right now. He is a really good horse, he's a big teddy bear, and I just feel horrible that he can find a good home. I don't know why he does this, the lady said the first couple days he was great, and now he's this terrible horse that is a danger to people.. I can't figure this out.

Oh, and this is the same horse that used to nicker at anyone that walked near him, puts his head in your arms, just pretty much loves people, and loves grooming!

unfortunately this happens. A horse does not settle and the new owners don't have enough knowledge to settle them, to understand that they have to try to get along with a new horse in a different way than the last horse they had. Horses are not all the same!
I hope he will be his usual good self when he returns to you and that they have not destroyed his confidence and good nature.
You will have to let him resettle and relearn that he can trust you.
What a shame.

i am fed up with the speed and the greed of the world around me but i have not found nor can i offer a cure

I really hope he is good when he comes back too. Everyone seems to think he will be, but you never know. I'm so nervous about when he comes back..

Fixed it.

What is this horse to you? I mean, do you have any ground to ask what happened? Is he in your care? Will the BO tell you the background story? Or is it something that they won't want you to think it's your business.

Thanks, Tiny! Well, that's the thing, she doesn't know what happened either. She read us the text they sent her and it sounded like a completely different horse, but The BO said she did kind of excpect it. Eiger is just a horse I fool around with at te barn, don't lounge him just groom him and play around with him in his stall. He isn't in my care, the BO owns him (again), but she wants to get rid of him.

If your his new owners reading this, don't let him fool you! I have no explination as to why he's acting like this, but he is a really great horse! He needs a special saddle for his high withers, so maybe that's why he went bronc crazy when he was saddled.
