This note is from his Mom, Tori (We LOVE Happy Endings like this...not bad for a once slaughter bound horse)
Hey, I just wanted to let you know how Tex is doing. Tex is not at all the lowest in the herd. He has made his way to the very top. He plays like crazy with one of the horses in his field.
He loves having a field full of more mares then geldings. We have been working a lot in the ring.
Working on bending, flexing work, slowing down. Recently we've been throwing in the jumps and he cleared about 3'3' vertical (I have a couple videos). I was planning on taking him to a local show but it got canceled because of weather.
We have also been doing a lot of trial rides (western). He now crosses water/mud crossings, and enjoys the creek. I will take him down with a bunch of other horses and once one horse starts splashing and playing he definantly jumps in.
He is now really comfortable with crazy kids,goats,pigs, alpacas,and cows.
Overall things are going great and hes very happy :) and so am I
