I would like to introduce you to my horse named Guinness! He is a Missouri Fox Trotter and has been here
on my farm now for five years. Isn't he a black beauty?
I absolutely love this photograph! Why? Because of what you will see below. He has come a long way in the last five years. When I purchased him, it was to SAVE him. His back ground before I got him is uncertain. But, what is certain is that he was terribly abused. He was skin and bones, and probably near death. I didn't know any better but to rescue him. I am so glad I did. He is a huge sweetheart, even after the human cruelty he endured. I was able to trace him back to his first owner in Montana. The woman then told me about his unique characteristic. A crooked nose..
Apparently, Montana is full of rattle snakes. When he was just a colt he was bitten in the nose, and it did this! The bite also stunted the growth of his tongue which is very small. Isn't he cute? OK, now, get ready to see his BEFORE
photo on the day I got him. WARNING, it is terrible. A very sad short story, with a very happy ending. :)
