I've only saddled and rode him once since I brought him here back at the beginning of Feb. He and the 3 yr old lineback were rehomed to me from a rescue.
Been doing a lot of ground work with him due to not wanting to yield his legs for farrier. This is from several injuries from a previous location unknown to me. He has a bump across his nose that looks like a finger under the skin from one side to the other, a couple of knots just before the tail bone that looks like a previous fracture, and a couple of rings on lower right leg. One at bottom of cannon and another center of pastern. Looks like they were really bad rope burns. He could not be tied without going completely balistic trying to get free.
We assume from all of the injuries that he was left tied and got tangled in long rope which led to him freaking out trying to get free. I only have a limited amount of info about him from before the rescue.
We have been working on him standing tied while we doctor, bath and work on lifting his hooves. He would immediately go into reverse and rear once he felt resistance on the lead. We are close too having that trained out of him, but this injury didn't help much other than him learning patience from stall rest while his buddies were all running around and playing musical chairs at the hay ring.
Sorry for the biography, but figured it may help you see where we are with him.
