Two of the horses at our barn were Artimus and Appy. Artimus came to us a year ago as a stallion and was gelded immediately. he has never exhibited typical stallion behavior. He is a little shy but stands well for the farrier and the groomer. Appy is a sweet 12 yr old mare. She was part of a large scale confiscation of neglected horses we took in almost 5 years ago.. Both horses were visited by potential adopters last week. They couldn’t make up their minds and decided to take both horses! Takes for your help in getting them into exceptional condition!
