This little horse of mine, I'm gonna let him shine
From drugged, neglected and abused to learning how to be a horse again This is the story of my young project (deemed rescue) and how I got him to where we are today.
In May on 2019, I took a long drive to a private barn. I tried a young horse out and decided to bring him home. Knowing he was just 90 days broke, only five years old and still growing I had high hopes (still do) to make him into an upper level event horse.
Long story short. Archie was dumped on me by a gal who got in over her head. She felt she needed to keep herself and him safe as he was much harder to handle than she expected so she decided that using dorm gel for most things, I.E farrier work, ground handling, trailering, clipping ect...was the best course of action.
After he arrived, realizing what was truly going on, I turned him out to pasture on just over 10 acres with a heard of other horses at the barn for two and half months (remainder of the summer) is was to let him just chill out, come off the drugs, relax and enjoy the summer being a horse. he was also in need of weight and TLC.
We have over come many big issues he came with, many more to still get over but we are finally at the phase where we can start working him under saddle. We really just are starting over with him from the ground up so I am hoping to log the experiences and progress with him on here, with a supportive and helpful crowd.
