Adjusted to new home!

Picaro has adjusted nicely to his temporary home at Ross Haven Farm in Sturbridge. He has top care at this rehab facility owned by Dr. Kirker-Head.

He LOVES to be outside, unfortunately, it can only be at the end of a lead rope as he also wants to roll so badly....and he did when we gave him a chance in the paddock.

We are about two weeks away from taking the pins out of his jaw and that will be a real milestone in his recovery process.

He is still eating pelleted forms of food and hay is still out of the question. We are hopeful that will change once the pins have been removed.

Not a great picture here - but it is outside in the spring weather!

Taking Picaro for a walk at Ross Haven Farm was like stepping into a storybook! The grounds are so beautiful and Picaro was as happy as he could be. His ears are always forward and with the wind blowing a little he decided to stop, look around and do a little capriole! It made me wonder - Paso or Lipizzan?

He has an infectious way about him. Everyone who meets him falls in love instantly. We can tell that he is tired of having his face poked at...only four more weeks until the pins are removed in his jaw.

He is still eating like a trooper - he looks great!

I am still taking applications for adoption - if you are interested, please email: allsmall7@gmail.com
