Meet Rico


Arrived 1st January 2007

When Rico arrived at our property, he was terribly under-weight; no doubt the shocking condition of his teeth would have contributed to this.

His shoed hooves were in terrible condition. With the removal of the shoes and consistent trimming plus having to fit boots to his hind feet in dry seasons to discourage the wearing away of his toes because of dragging his feet, we have noticed a marked improvement. Initially caring for his hooves was a lethal experience, but now a shear pleasure as he quietly stands with no halter or lead rope.

Over time, with much patience Rico has become a soft gentle horse and much loved by us all.
