Found a new little guy on the station, his mum was heavy in foal again and wasnt up too looking after him, its a hard summer up there so we took him away from her, i think she was actually really releived, didnt even try and call him back to her. Hes a bit skinny but is putting on weight slowly, hes a real little character trying to be a big king pin. hell be gelded soon! i forgot to update on the other horse i got from the station, the one in the confessional- he was gelded, gentled and backed and went to a lovely new home where he will be doin campdrafting and stockwork. will put a new pic up soon
he is coming along well, stil has a bump on his face but i think it may subside as he gets older, also a little splay footed but so minor that it is hardly noticable! also put on about 10kg since weve had him!!! , his coat is coming up alot better and if youd seen him at the start youd notice the weight gain too- still a long way to go in the weight department though
So glad you found him when you did. Looks like he's had a tough start to life but things are getting better for sure. Hope he turns out well for you. Jen
