Bold Hawk

Well you guessed it, yes he is going to be my new horse. I have been looking for a project horse for quite some time now, his name is Bold Hawk, and he is straight off the race track, he is five years old, he also dishes, and has quite a lot of scars. So hearing all that you are probably wondering why I am buying him, well he has a look to him like he has never been loved, he is kept in ok condition, but he is just used they clearly don’t care about him. Niko used to be a race horse, and I love him very much, and Niko has a lot of talent, and so I am hopeing that Bold Hawk’s talents will come out, with a lot of love and a lot of training, and to be honest even if he has no talents at least he will be loved. Sorry about just the one photo, but it is the only photo I have of him.

Thank you all for your comments on my last post.

Everyone wondered why I bought a pony with arthritis, but I believe if you give Bold Hawk love and good care, then like Spotty, you will get so much more from him. Good for you taking on a horse like this and I am sure you will have some great times ahead with him. Abby

Kudos for getting a horse that needs love. I hope he turns out to have the talent you are looking for.

I couldn't think of a better home for Hawk, and I believe he will flourish and thrive under your love, care and training. You have the right attitude going in to this adoption. Whether or not he reveals a talent is not of utmost importance to you. Well done, Edward

I think I'm going to have to post this as annonymous as Blogger hasn't quite fixed the problem it's been having. But just so you know, this is Michelle over at Hood Acre Farms and the Beak Whisperer.

Horses with 'history' need lots of love and attention - my horse is terrified of the riding whip, just seeing one makes him nervous. I have no idea what happened to make him like that, and I really don't want to know as it would probably just make me angry, but with time he is slowly beginning to trust me more and more. They never forget but they can rethink things - fortunate for us that they are so clever and forgiving!
