A few years ago Mary & Joseph got a call from a lady that needed to place horses. She had a papa horse that had run amok and they had a population explosion within just a few years. They had no feed or room for them so the horses needed to get out of the situation. It was Thanksgiving weekend so we hooked up Mary's trailer and another friends and off we went. We took home 7 of the 20 horses that remained at the farm that day. 15 had already been removed prior to our visit- the rest a few weeks later.

Chelsea is a biiiggg girl, a beautiful paint horse. Her markings are striking and she is amazing and smart. She was very underweight when we brought her home. She had been locked in a small stall with no bedding on cement for a long time. We are not sure what put her in a stall when nobody else was but she developed a bad habit of 'cribbing' or swallowing air. Her teeth are worn to the gums from it. We thought she was around 20 years old she looked so bad. Turns out I found the original owner of Chelsea and she was only FOUR years old. That is how sad Chelsea looked.

She is all happy and healthy now and only has a few issues left for me to work on. Mainly involving her feet and fear of having them handled, and her refusal to have anything in her mouth. I am going to train her to be ridden in a bitless bridle so she does not center so much on the bit in her mouth. She flips herself over backwards to avoid things being put in her mouth. I don't want to say what I think happened to her. We'll leave it at that!

She loves to be brushed and Cricket is her best friend. She's a little bossy with the others but they don't seem to get too upset about it. She is a very good girl!
