Roger - A new life...
Hey everyone, meet Roger! Our new rescue! We've had him for three weeks - I know, I've been tight lipped! He's 16.2, 7yo and been off the track for 5 months. He was raced successfully at the start of his career, but as they do, he started loosing races and was sacked and before long, headed for slaughter. We got to him one week before he was due to be taken for meat, got him home and got to work on him right away. He was very skinny, head to toe with the worst case of rainscald I've ever seen, and his coat was really bad nick. Medicated baths, worming, vaccs, farriers, ground work, and LOTS of feed later and he's ready to start ridden work, and today was the first ever ride. He has lovely, springy paces, and a really kind attitude towards work. Loves people and has lovely ground manners. He is going to be amazing with a bit of work put it - watch this space!!! Please NO CRIT on my riding, first time ever on this horse, and his first time back in work for a long while. I am working with a coach so I will get 'helpful tips' from her, I know where my faults are and are working on them, thank you :) Thanks so much everyone for all your support so far, I really love reading all your lovely comments so keep em coming!!! :) Thanks for all your subs and all your 'thumbs up's' :D Love u all xoxoxoxo
