A handsome stallion joined our herd last week — an 18 year old buckskin boy named Arrow. He was an owner surrender, and while he is overdue for some basic care and in need of groceries, he has clearly had some good experiences in his past given how gentle he has shown himself to be so far. He let us curry (and bathe!) away the caked on mud on his hocks and the rain rot on his back, and he received his ‘domestic horse’ braids on just day 2 of being at SAFE.

He is set to be gelded later this week, and if his nature as a stallion is anything to go by, we expect him to make a tremendous gelding.
