A lady whom I first met in the barn I bought Snickers from is now selling her horse. The reason? After returning from a calm, walk only tail ride and almost having reached the stables, her gelding suddenly started bucking and rearing furiously, doing everything to get her off. She fell, broke her spine in two places and one of her arms, too. She can move her limbs so the worst didn't happen, but she is majorly injured none the less. Nobody, including herself, doesn't understand what the heck happened. The gelding has always been very, very calm, even passive, has a good history, has been a trail plodder for several years already and is just 8-9 years old, with a minor breathing problem. It's just such a shame and they seemed to be such a good pairing. We went on a couple of trail rides together and her gelding was such a sweetheart! She will try to find a good home for him, but, with this history, it might be hard... :(
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
