How We Met

well, ive known him for 6 years and i used to ride him when he was a school horse until last year... he went on a trail ride last October and got a loose shoe when this girl was riding him (i didnt ride at that stable at the time anymore) and they pulled the loose shoe and then pulled the other one. Turns out, he came back and he was dead lame.They called the farrier and he had an abcess, they cured it and popped it, and they thought that was the issue, but it wasnt:( finally after5 months of stall rest, they thought thought that he would be a little better, but he wasnt. He was worse. So, the old owner called my mom and told her about him ,and what has happend to him. The old owner was then not able to help him any longer and didnt want to put any more money towards him if he wasnt gonna get better, so the owner ask my mom if we wanted him and i over heard them talking on the phone and started balling my eyes out saying how much i want him no matter what has happend to him. So, we ended up taking him. After moths of him being at my house and on grass, we had the vet come and take ex-rays. The vet then tod us he had navicuar. After that, we called tons of farriers and they tested him for it and they all kept saying " he doesnt have navicular, he dosent have navicular". And, when the vet came they told us to put him down. I cried for days and prayed that he would get better and we didnt have to put him down. Finally a miracle happend and he started getting better. To this day he is jumping and living the life he always had have before but even a better one. After all those months me and my mom had to be our own vets and treat him and...you know what...it paid off after spending over 3,000 dollars on a horse that i have loved forever. To make it even better, we found his original owners that bred him and everything and we found out he has a brother and a sister and his mom and dad are still alive. Turns out 10 years ago, Gatsby was a professional barrel racer..
