||Ten years old|
||Appendix Quarter Horse|
is such a funny and loving horse who came from a dire situation. I
rescued him when he was eight years old from a farm near where I live. He was
emaciated, sluggish and had very bad diarrhea (which continued for about a
year) from not getting any grain and only very bad hay. One week after I
brought him home 23 horses at the farm I bought him from died of botulism,
meaning they ingested bad hay, unfit fr horses.
Within a year Derby had gained over 50 pounds, had tons of energy and became
filled with life. It was a stunning transformation.
I have now owned him for a little over two years. He is amazing and takes such
good care of me. He is an avid jumper, jumping up to four-feet two-inch-tall (1.27 m) jumps
and has placed many firsts with me in horse shows. He is so kind and
absolutely amazing! I love him very, very much!
