Must.. resist...ah what the heck!

So I got myself another freebie, my third one.
I couldn't say no, I HAD to have her. I trained her when she was 6 mos old and 1 1/2, she has been through two different homes then went back to her original owner both times, both of those homes were neglectful and the last one was abusive.
She came back skin and bones and was whipped in the face, to establish "dominance". When she was just 6 mos old she had been thrown over the side of a stall door to have her feet trimmed, and whacked with a rasp in the hindquarters, I would have given that farrier a piece of my mind if I were there.
It took me a long time to get her reaction to being touched on the hindquarters down to a flinch, rather than tucking her whole rump under herself.
She's quite a energetic little brat, but I like a challenge, so I'm ready for whatever she throws my way. I've never worked with abused horses before, just some that had never had any human contact, I'd say those were easier because they didn't know not to trust humans, with abused horses they have a hard time trusting anything on two feet.
I'll be starting Maddie's training as soon and I can't wait!

I'm glad she's finally found a home where she will be loved and cared for properly. Please upload some photos of her though!
