Just adopted my 1st horse. Or maybe I should say he adopted us. Let me share a little about him. He is a beautiful Quarterhorse....I believe they call it a Dunne. He was gelded very late in life, so he has many characterisrics of a stallion. This magnificent creature was tied by the ankle for 7 years. Never allowed to walk freely. It gets even worse..he was in a mudslide for several days before being rescued. When the vet saw this pitiful shell of a horse, he highly suggested to put him down. Well.....my daughter and I chose to adopt him. Even though many said it was a lost cause, we did'nt give up on him.......Now a year later he is running free, taking us on incredible horse rides and teaching us to ask the right questions. By the way when the vet came by to do an annual check up on the horse, he was dumbfounded. Could not believe that was the same horse.
I am a novice, very green when it comes to horses. Would love any information on handling and caring for horses. I think the best place to start is ground work. I am open for any advice and would be much appreciative for any horse schooling you can give me. This horse has given me so much, I just want to do right for him..mahao
