Here is my stunning ex racehorse Alfie... and how i met him and some of his history.
- Alfie is 7 year old, thoroughbred gelding who was born in ireland, and raced. His racing career wasnt successful until the very end of it, which is weird why they retired him during his best.. but when they retired him, they put him in a field and left him there, he became skinny... and his mane and tail was all rubbed off..(he still has a pathetic tail) .. Back in November last year, he was rescued by a kind lady.. who put weight on him, loved him, hacked him, and just had fun on him.. she didnt have turnout so he was always in the stable but he was still so happy to be loved :) when i went up and bought him in early april, and brought him from england to wales, i turned him out, and he was so happy.. he had grass, water and room to run, which is what all thorougbreds just love to do. He put weight on, he has so much muscle. We started hacking him out, doing flat work, jumping.. he even did a little dressage show, and was very well behaved even though he really doesnt understand the meaning of "outline" yet, but it will come! He did a little jumping show.. the size of the jumps didnt phase him and neither did the fillers, he is so eager to learn! At the moment, hes on box rest due to the fact he came in from the field with a cut on his leg, (a massive one) with blood and everything hanging out, so hes been on box rest for 4 weeks, with around 4 weeks to go. But when he does come back in to work, he will be going to dressage shows, and jumping, but most of all a lot of hacking to just allow him to be a horse. He is so polite, and so eager to learn and I love him!
