    My mom got her first horse!

    She had them when she was a kid, but she finally got her first horse as an adult! He's an awesome gelding (at least so far). He was rescued by a trainer after not being cared for. He was being fed moldy hay and lost a ton of weight and was very sick. The trainer said he may have heaves, or may just still be sick. He hasn't been coughing or wheezing and mom has trotted him around the round pen and rode him a little bit. He's still pretty thin so they are going easy on him.

    Any who, here's Chino, my mom got him for $175 and had to use my trailer because he's a large 16 hands! Oh and he's only 12 years old.








    You can see how thin he still is in this picture. The trainer had him for 2 months and was feeding him some sort of Purina fattening food, I forget what it was called, but he said Chino has put on a lot of weight in two months. Poor boy

    Awww... poor fella! Glad he's with you guys now, and your mom has a new friend. And what a pretty baby! I love his markings!

    Someday... at least a mini if not one I can ride... Someday.
