Istanly came to us from the kill pen last year- he was a stallion and in really rough shape. It took a village to bring him back to health- we had to keep him at another farm for several months until he was healthy enough to geld- and then he had to heal up after gelding and learn how to be a horse in a herd. He is now one of the gang here- easy going and very friendly, and is always at the fence to meet visitors. He is a nice ride, with a rocking horse canter- he is just starting to learn how to get round. Stanley does have a slight wind noise- he probably had a tie back and we are guessing that is why he never raced, although he is tattooed. He has some minor changes in his knee and fetlocks but they should not be limiting- we have xrays and the vet report. Stanley is a true success story, he is one of the ones who would have been lost if we hadn’t had the support of so many to get him to where he is today.
(Apologies for the muddy pics, our horses live out 24/7 in herds- our days are full, and we usually have to choose between grooming or riding, and riding is always more important.)
