    This poor fellow looks beaten up and very poor…It is a sad photo for me…

  • No worries Helen….he wasn’t beaten up…..just very dirty!!!! They had just had a lot of rain and all the horses had been rolling in the mud and dirt….some of the dirt in the area is very clay like and sticks to their bodies for hours!!
