    Well, the big guy is here, and I'm excited! He is definitely a rehab/project, but i knew that going in, and it really isn't anything we can't handle, between myself, my barn owner and my trainer. He needs some weight, but its not horrible. We are also putting him on a supplement to build his topline.
    He is with me for a few weeks to make sure he is going to work out, and if he does, i will be buying him officially. His previous owner was very upfront about him, and told me everything there is to know, so i am very pleased about that. He is pushy on the ground, and has become food aggressive, but tbh, after starving for 6 months, i really can't blame him. He allowed me to groom him while he munched on his hay when i went to pick him, which shocked the lady, but we were both pleased. She has had him back for a little over a month. Before that she had sold him to someone, who for some reason just quit taking care of him. He is a little on the thin side right now, and his feet are absolute MESS. But, hopefully the farrier will have a good prognosis.
    I've named him Rhaegar, and i think I'll be showing him under "The Last Dragon" or just "The Dragon" He's also hit it off with my brother, which i find a bit amusing... 20180109_184052.jpg 20180109_184212.jpg 20180109_184221.jpg

    Cute... doesn't really look like a rehab case, mostly looks like he just needs loads of slow work!

    He needs some TLC for sure, especially his feet. So in some ways, he is a rehab, or rather, a continuation of a rehab.

    Yep! I renamed him though, because he likes to act like a fire breathing dragon

    I would have changed his name too.

    Hope he works out for you.
