I don't know of anyone that can help him. They have this colt on one of my dad's drinking buddy's land, so the outcome of this and this horse's future do not look good. Believe me, I have watch many animals come and go in my lifetime because of my dad. He gets them when he's sobber, or worse, when he's drunk, and then gets in a pickle or put in jail and they just disapear.
Anyways...enough about that. I've already told my brother he needs to geld him and he's already looking into it, though I know they don't have the money. There are 2 stud colts out there, but one is his.
He's a smart kid and likes to read, so I'm going through all my horse books today and I'm going to mail him some. I don't want to overwhelm him, but he's excited about learning all this stuff, which is probably going to save him alot of heartache and make this colt into a decent horse.
I'm just mad that my dad got him the worst possible horse he could have. Get him an old gelding that he can get on and learn what a horse is like, not a baby.
Wow, I'm still so mad today about it!!!!! I would be more then willing to take him and to fix him up, but I can't just drive down there and get him. They live 8 hours away and the gas alone would get expensive not to mention all the shots, worming, and vet work I'm sure this horse needs.
My husband and I do have a little colt that is coming 2 and I thought if my brother's little guy turns out badly or leaves just as fast as he came, I would give our colt to my brother. Then I know he's cared for and I know he will get the proper training and my brother will have my husband and I to supervise when he comes out to see him.
