Sometimes, in a rehab, that seems like it will never end, it's important for me to STOP and appreciate that even with our hurdles-we have come so so far.
Laz, my official day of adopting/rescuing him in the Fall of 2008
What I owned, is what you see. A lead rope, a halter, fly spray.
And now, a pony...
To now, he's changed.
Physically yes, but mentally-totally.
I can't explain what I saw, or actually FELT with this every day Bay OTTB gelding....but it was major.
I knew, if he wasn't mine to love and care for, I would never sleep ok again.
I made that decision after riding him/meeting him, I woke in the middle of the night thinking "I need this boy"
His kind eye that he's always had...I hope that he had trainers/groomers that were kind to him in his past.
And my beautiful boy today...
