I am happy to report that I have found my first horse! And I am as giddy as a school girl! Ok, his name is Presley he is a Boerperd/Arabian X and a real stunner! Well I don't think I am very objective but I am sure you guys know how it goes ha haha...
I have had him know for 5 days, he is a little underfed what can I do to correct that? At the moment I am feeding him hay, and gradually adding feed to his diet and I am giving him carrots everyday when I go to visit with him for a hour or 2.
I am getting the farrier to check out his hooves on saterday as they aren't looking to great... I know but I just fell in love with him and I hope that it is all repairable. He is just a baby I think he is only about 3 years old! I myself am green so I am just doing join up, he already is happy to see me he nuzzle's my hair I love it;) and he follows me everywhere I go in the ring. The lady I bought him from said he is very scared of people and jumps up and stuff, but so far I have not had any behaviour like that from him, so maybe he feels the same way about me;)
Well any and all advise will be appreciated, I don't know what to buy, for day to day use, I have a halter and a blanket but as he is nervous I don't use the blanket.
I just want to give him the proper care he deserves - PLEASE HELP!
Hope you all have a great day!
