Where'd you get your horse? Did they live anywhere before that? How far back do you know about?
Before my barn bought Gonzo, he was at an Omish farm, where they treated him like a machine. If your car doesn't absolutely need gas, you don't go to a gas station, right? So they didn't feed him until he was starving, and barely fed him anything. You don't give your car a paint job if it you don't care about it that much, right? They didn't care about him, they didn't groom him. He'd never even seen fly spray.. and they totally beat him while riding him. He was one of the most skiddish ponies I'd ever met when I met him, and now he's still nervous. And it's not like he's young-he's 17. But he has such a good home now, and we all love him... especailly me. :)
