    Happy dance that the little guy is doing better.

    Yes, pictures please.

    I too am some what jealous about the feet. But honestly, I could never do it even if I knew the basics. Add that my farrier is some what cute and I like him as a person so being able to visit with him every so often (every six to eight weeks) is pretty nice.

    Awww that's such great news! He also probably looks slim to you still if he needs to build more muscle, but so great, he has come along so far, congrats for your first rescue!!

    Boxer, thanks, although he's not my first rescue, but thanks so much!

    Monty's face is healing beautifully now. Just a tiny scab left, and hair is growing back over the wound and I am REALLY keeping my fingers crossed, it appears to be no scar.

    I also rode him today for the first time in ages. He was a little doll, no problems at all other than getting slightly startled once when Willow charged up behind him. He really is a very good little guy. It's been some time since I rode him, with all that had been going on, I forgot how good he actually is. Although he doesn't know a lot, he is eager to please and so willing. I'll be trying to ride him just about every day, or as close to it as possible, for the near future.

    By the way, for those who don't already know, he is now looking for a permanent home. See his thread here:

    Monty is looking for his forever home!

    Still no new pictures though. Darn it. Will get those tomorrow I PROMISE!

    Just thought I'd post a quick update, since it's been so long.

    Monty has gone from a horse that would violently rip the lead out of your hands, to a horse I can lead around with just a hand under his chin.

    He has gone from a horse that would run to the farthest end of the pasture and puff and blow at any stranger, to a horse that has found it is well worth his time to be first in line to greet any new stranger. (Because people are cookie bearers!)

    First couple times I trimmed his horribly overgrown feet, it was in the air while he was continually rearing. Now he stands to have his feet done like a pro, his feet are perfect, 100% sound, and I can trim him all the way around in about 20 minutes.

    He used to flinch at any touch - a stroke, a brush, didn't matter what it was, he didn't like it. Now I can touch him anywhere, pat him firmly, walk behind him, exclaim and shove him on his rear and he just stares at me like "dude, why are you so weird."

    The day Monty arrived:

    A now, a bit over 1 year later:
