This lovely horse has settled in nicely. He is approachable and curious. Still pretty shy, but he has a very kind eye.
UPDATE - While it may not suit him, this boy's new name is Henry---named after Cindy Henry, the AHRN friend, volunteer, worker-bee and board member, who died suddenly one month ago. I check Gail's board regularly, and last week got this gut feeling that this handsome, elegant boy's days might just be running out. I thought of taking him for myself as I have been looking for a second horse, but he may need more than I can give. However, I knew an email to a handful of AHRN supporters would raise the money to get him out and safe and cared for. I do not miss all the work from when the AHRN was running full steam, but I can't say no when know we can jump in and help.
Henry will be picked up on Saturday (Oct 28) and he will go to one of the AHRN's main foster homes---Cindy and Katie B.-- in Banning. He will be given the time he needs to settle, have that jaw looked at and all else he may require. At some point when he's more relaxed and trusting, Katie will see if he is broke to ride and how much he knows. (Katie used to get on all the AHRN horses---she is a beautiful, kind and talented rider)---and then we will work on finding him his own person suitable for his abilities.
Thanks for letting us help when we can. This one's for you Cindy H.!!!!
Special thanks to Diane M. Barbara Z and Valerie H---who always jump in when needed.
