Welcome to Cool Man and Honey D. They arrived on Monday and have been settling in quite well. They were a mess when they got here and will need a bunch of work before they get into the program. Honey's tail was one big matt and it literally took two hours to brush out. Cool Man's feet are so much worse than what I remember them being when we looked at them 3 weeks ago! They have had little to no attention in the past year or longer, but they are young and have the potential for many years helping our riders!
Honey D is a 7 year old lineback dun Quarter Horse Mare. She is a big girl and once she gets into shape will be able to carry some of our heavier riders.
She has only had about 30 days of training and will take a bit longer to get her into the program. But her age and her demeanor made it seem like it will be worth the effort!
We are frequently asked how we bring a new horse into the program. There is a process and no 2 horses are the same.
