I know I havent properly introduced myself to the forum yet.. so here I go.. My name is Jynnelle, I live in Beautiful BC Canada. I don't currently Own a horse, But have always been really fascinated by them.. I think they are beautiful animals, and I would love to learn more about them.. I currently own Three dogs (Tikeya-Siberian Husky, Ebony-Lab, and Daisy- Pitbull... I also have a 7 month old son-Dominic)
I do have a little perdicament involving a horse right now though.. that's the real reason I joined this forum... I need horse help!!!
Well, were moving again to a new house, a lease..
And our new place has a horse on the lot.
I went to visit him today, he looks in rough shape.. I didn't see any water in his pen, he looks like he's only eating hay .. No veggies or any other feed anywhere in sight.. I'm not sure what horses are suppost to get in their diet, like vitamine supplements or what types of Fruit and Veggies they are allowed?
The owner of the horse (our future landlord) said we can feed him whenever we want, and take care of him too, *he'll pay for everything tho*. He said we can ride him or walk him when ever we want to as well...He hasn't been riden in over two years, and the last time someone rode him he bucked them off because he got spooked...
The firstt hing I noticed about him is that he looks sooooo sad .. His eyes, somthing about them just made my heart ache... His maine has matts in it, and he has a few weird looking sores forming on his legs... He also looks very overweight.. He also has no where to go for shelter, other then a few pine trees at the bottom end of his pen.. *I don't know if that's ok for a horse to have no shelter?? Shouldn't he be put in a stable at night or somthing??
I have no Idea on what intales with owning a horse, or what I can do to make his life better... Any ideas??
