Spencer is doing great these days! Looking good! Super friendly! Easy to halter and lead. Loves lots of attention and scratches. We still have a long ways to go on his feet, but he's sound and we have been working with him on ground driving and saddling. He's been a blast! And may have a new friend soon named Rudy!
Just wanted to add a quick update since it's been awhile. Spencer is doing really well. Getting more and more respectful and gaining the weight. When I look back on picture of him last winter, he did get thin. He was getting all the hay he could eat, but he was moving around a lot more than probably he had in years being in with the other horses.
He is the BIG MAN ON CAMPUS. No one argues with Spencer except the newest little pony, Millie. She has a big fat crush on him.
He seems to enjoy playing agility games! All dressed up in his winter coat! I think this Summer, he'll be looking really nice.
Thanks for hanging in there, and I hope you check back soon. If you check the linked blog, Rainier Hoof Recovery, you'll see why I haven't updating you on Spencer.
Pat and Rich Wagner own and operate the Rainier Equine Hoof Recovery Center. A non-profit (501c3) rescue facility where horses with hoof problems come for rehabilitation. We also provide clinics to teach horse owners to "naturally" trim their own horses hooves.
