So when I first became a member on this forum I didn't have a horse, though I longed for it. Well shortly after I ended up joining a rescue effort to find homes for over 100 young horses that had been shipped up from the States to be slaughtered, weren't be cared for, had ringworm, worm infestation which some died of shortly after being rescued, open wounds, deformed legs, lame... the man admitted some starved to death, kept claiming they had all had medical treatment and spouted of lie after lie to the point he couldn't even keep up with them. Anyways, I picked out a skinny bay filly on that September day.
The man handed out coggins to some people and told the rest of us he didn't have any papers at all on any of the horses. Another lie seeing as they required them to get across the boarder, several fillies turned up pregnant as there were several stud colts and crypts in the herd even though they are required by law to be gelded. He now has another herd up here not far from where these guys were and they to are in a sad state but the man won't stop all we can do is call the OSPCA and hope they do something.
As of now she still can't be handled, is still nervous and unsure of people. But she's curious and it gets the better of her sometimes. She'll come over sniff your hand, lip at you. When she thinks your not paying attention she'll come up behind you and just stand there or follow you.
I moved her to a new barn today so I can visit her more often and these are the pictures I managed to take. Hopefully she'll come alot faster with her being much closer now.
This little snot is eating away my money. I do have her up for sale but I'm not expecting much seeing as she's unhandled. I'm not sure I even really want to sell her but if the right people come along I suppose I would. Until then she'll keeping nomming away on my bank account. ;)
