Rebel has now been with me for a week. There is no immediate hurry to get him "fixed and rehomed", he is a longer term project and so we have a bit of time to play with. The first week has just been about settling in. He has experienced quite a lot in his short life, so time to relax into his surroundings for me is really important.
Following on from a recent conversation with my contact at the RSPCA about a young miniture horse with stifle issues requiring a bit of rehab before being rehomed, saw the arrival of Rebel. The background of this young man was that he had been recently rescued, was around 12 months old and had been gelded just the day before, but they [the staff at the yard he was taken to] could now catch him. Now I must admit, I was expecting a naughty, hard to handle, small beasty with devil horns ............. the reality, fortunately, was much different.
