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.
