Doc-boy has been on a very long journey for a ten year old. Lucky for him, a new owner (Suzette) fell in love with him! Suzette described him as "overly fearful to all stimuli, reactive, stiff, predictably suspicious, mentally crippled, totally embodied the flight characteristics of a prey animal." "He was not a broke horse, but a broken one." "To love him was not enough."
"To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved." George MacDonald
Suzette's care, courage, and through the education she acquired through Julie Robins and Kendra DeKay, she has transformed him into one trusting soul partner. To have a horse put away his fears and put their trust into you, well, there isn't anything in the world like it. What a handsome, regal guy.
For more photographs and a look at the demo Suzette gave with him during the opening day of The Aiken Horsemanship Academy, check out the gallery button at Lauriefixphotography.com
