Even though Studly hadn't been ridden in about eight years, he has proven to be an excellent horse, and took to being ridden again like a fish to water.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

This is a picture of Studly in February of 2010.

We are taking this opportunity to show our audience how to recognize when a horse is in need of special care.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

February 2012

Two years later, in February of 2012, you can see a marked decrease in Studly's weight. In addition, you can see how he has begun to hold his head lower.

Such was the case with Studly.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

If an older horse begins losing weight, it is often because the horse is not receiving the nutrition it needs from regular feed sources.

As we hope all our adopters will do if they find themselves unable to care for their horses, Studly's adopters called us because they were unable, due to unforseen circumstances, to maintain the proper nutritional balance for Studly.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

February 2012

Studly is an Appy in his mid-late 20's. Because he is an older horse, he needs to be feed a consistent diet of Senior Feed.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

February 2012

He hasn't lost too much weight, he still has muscle tone, his previous adopters called us in good time.

He'll be back up to weight again in a few months, and will make someone a good saddle horse. He is fully broke to ride.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

February 2012

We must reiterate that Studly will require a consistent diet of Senior feed to maintain proper care and nutrition.

In addition, it will be necessary to have a veterinarian or an equine dentist care for his teeth on a regular basis. This is true for all horses, but especially true for older horses.

We are always here to answer questions about horse care.

Rest In Peace, Studly.

January 2014

Studly has lived a good life.

His eyesight has failed him. He needs rest and protection for the rest of his days.

His best friend is Lauren.

He loves Lauren and will do anything for her. They ride on a regular basis and he has total trust in her since he can no longer see.
