    Hi Jynelle, you are a lucky girl and by the sounds of it he is a lucky horse. Take your time and spend as much time as you can with him in the paddock by grooming him, patting him and just talking to him. Hang out with him, be patient and I bet you will find that you both will bond and he will eventually be your best mate and follow you around like a dog. Find some nice treats that he likes, like carrots or apples. My horse doesnt like carrots or apples, I give mine licorice for a treat and he licks apple juice from the palm of my hand like a dog. Just experiment and have fun. Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

    This sounds a bit like neglect on the owners part. The horse needs water at all times. They drink a lot! Some horses are ok without grain and supplements, others need them. If the horse is pretty healthy and doesn't have stresses like daily workouts and rigorous riding, it may be ok eating hay. Treats like carrots are always a good idea, especially when gaining the trust and friendship of a horse. Horse treats that you buy at the store should be fed sparingly though. Daily brushing is a good practice also. If the hooves have grown too long they may be cracked and have disease in them. They should be cleaned out often to keep them healthy. Horses need their hooves. Just contact and love will make this horse appear happier. It just may take some time.
