RE: score!

I've come home with all kinds of junk over the years, but never came home with a horse. I don't think a horse would enjoy living on our patio !

RE: score!

lol...well we do have 4 1/2 acres for the 4 legged yard ornaments...

this dude was GIVING AWAY an Arab horse??Pure bred? Did he know wht he had? Sorry, I'm an Arabian horse fan and there was a time when I'd have given all I owned to have one of these beauties.

RE: score!

Yup giving it away....horse's owner died; guy didn't wanna mess with him... he thought it was a "saddle" horse.....there is no doubt he is arabian- dish face high plumbed tail an all.....I'm a qtr horse person and not used to those cheekbones but he is quite a sight running with that tail and head up! He is one of the "bigger" types about 14'3/15 hands....and very well trained western style even neckreins

RE: score!

Ps...its not unusual for me to get a call or someone comes up to me at work or drives up at home with the question"you wanna horse/horses they are free" I have done rescue in the past and am working on helping a palomino qtr horse mare get healthy right now.... this makes the 5th horse ive been given this year....

ok guys this is the Arabian....he needs a bit of weight, but not extreme...he has been wormed and is going to get a mani/pedi...lol

RE: score!

Breaks my heart to see horses(or any other animal or human abused) He looks like a gentle horse & will be grateful for your care. I think they know, I know friends who have take in abused dogs & they were wonderful pets. This horse may be missing his owner too so feeling that loss if owner treated him right. Do you have to keep the horses apart?


 o
RE: score!

oh, he's not separated from the other horses, he is now a big brother to the yearlings in the front pasture, (1 is mine ,1 is neighbors) he is gentle, but firm in his "im not going to be run over by yous babies" lol which is just what they needed, both colt and filly came here underweight, colt (blue roan) was way skinny....along with good health came a 'im gonna try and boss you attitude.... he is currently rectifying that attitude...lol

Horses

Thanks for the pics!! Glad big bro. is there now to straighten the others out!! Then do you find homes for them or just increase # you have, you are probably almost a Vet by now getting them healthy!! Looks like white 1 is whispering to brown 1," looks like we got trouble here, he's bigger than us!" Jan

RE: score!

most times, I rehome them, as I have 2 permanent residents, my paint mare, simi (pic was just after weaning her colt )and the blue roan in pics above... since getting married in February, I have been on the hunt for a horse for my hubby, who is ok with my taking in needy animals as long as we are not loosing $$...which usually it is a break even thing... occasionally I will take a loss if the fit is right with the prospective owner...it is looking like the Arabian is going to be a permanent resident....he is a mans horse, and watches my hubby all the time he is in the yard.....

RE: score!

Omg what beautiful animals. Especially the paint! I was raised with horses on the farm and I really miss them.


 o
RE: score!

RE: score!

thanks, guys for the compliments! I did have a palomino colt the spittin image of my mare, he was her colt, he passed in feb due to colic... the blue came in to my life to keep me active and keep me from depression...not my normal state, but losing him was like loosing a 4 legged young'un....
