Tuesday's Tails, #3

We are currently boarding two horses for a friend. He is going through a divorce and is in Texas working. The horses weren't getting fed regularly (Grrrr!!) so he asked Jerry if he would board them until he gets a place and can come get them. They have been here for over a month now and look a LOT better than when Jerry went and got them!

This is T-Bone, he is about 15-20 and has a pretty good temperament. Our friend's 11-year-old daughter was riding him. He's finally getting where you can't see his ribs so much. (Grrrr!!)

This is Flash, he is 14 months old. I had Jerry take a picture of me, at 5'3", with him so that ya'll could see how little he is, he should be bigger than that. We figure he wasn't fed properly and it stunted him. His mom was on the smaller size but still....
Also, he hasn't been gelded yet! (Grrrr!!)

I call him Shorty. He is just as sweet as can be, very friendly and isn't afraid of anything. Unfortunately, nobody has worked with him other than getting him halter broke. He has absolutely no ground manners! (Grrrr!!) If I had more time to spend outside (stuck in the house baking bread ya' know) I would try to work with him some so that he at least understood to back up and get out of your face! LOL!!

Of course, Paco couldn't be left out of the photo shoot!

The End!!

Great pics, Candy, and super job taking care of that horse! I love the horse-kiss picture (I have so many cow-kiss pictures of Matilda!).

Have a great day. :)

Sigh. So many people WANT a horse, but have no idea as to how expensive (and important) it is to feed and look after them properly. Kudos to you and Jerry for taking them in and taking such good care of them!

glad you could take them in and give them food and love! they look good.

They are beautiful horses. I am glad you have them. Since you have had them for a month do think he will come back for them.If so can you let them go. It would be so hard for me to do. I get really attached to animals

If it were just a question of money, I could understand but it was actually a lack of caring!

Paco was actually seeing if the camera was something good to eat! LOL!!

I was really glad Jerry went and got them. Hopefully, we will get some money from their owner to feed them.

SweetLand Farm,
Thanks! They are both really nice horses! :)

I'm really hoping he comes to get them. If not, we will have to sell them. The reason WE are down to one horse is because the price of hay is so stinkin' high! I would miss Shorty though! :)

MARARIA said...

what a good person you both are! they are in good hands; they look pretty nice now!

Candy C. said...

Thanks for the kind words! :)

Love the way you put the post together :-) Love that nose in the camera shot. Glad they re getting their tummies filled.

Candy C. said...

Thanks! I'm really glad we are able to help them.

That's great that you can take in the horses. My daughter I and I volunteered to work at a horse rescue.

How sweet you are to take in those horses. And I can't believe how short that shorty horse is! :)

Candy C. said...

Good for you guys for your volunteer efforts! :)

Mama Tea,
I was thinking about it last night, he isn't much taller than when he was born! :(

I love all critters, glad you are taking care of them. I'm sure they're very grateful :)
