My coach recently went to purchase a few new horses for her school and ended up purchasing 11, 3 of which were pregnant and due in less than a month. It was a massive rescue mission. When she went to see the horses, one pony was tied in a standing stall with 18 inches of rope. That's where it lived. We first thought it was a gelding because the teats had stuck together from the filth she was living in. Also, when the owner went to seperate the mothers from babies... out came the whip. Paddocks were knee high in **** and it was just horrible.
Luckily she bought them all, and now most have good homes with new owners if not at her own barn.
Bad trainers, bad owners... there sure isn't any shortage of horrible people on this planet. :(
Just be happy that he no longer will be abused and is safe with you.
