Our newest member of the family...

Meet, who I have named, Trio.

He has three white 'socks' and I just thought that fit perfectly.

Trio, showed up in the pasture last week. Or that's when my future Mom-in-Law first spotted him. After a little more investigation throughout the week tho, we think he has been in the back of the pasture in the wooded area for at least two weeks. We found a place in the fence that had been cut, and with Tracie's investigating, she found out where he came from. We couldn't find him Friday, Saturday, or Sunday but he made another grand appearance yesterday.

How could anyone let their horse get THIS BAD???? It just baffles me! It takes some time for any animal to get in this condition. It has truly broken my heart to see him in this kind of condition. 

He is SUPER sweet! My future Sis-in-Law has helped me in learning some things about horses and has really helped me with him over the past couple of days. He has only stayed in the back part of the pasture and she was able to get fresh water to him yesterday. We took him some feed last night and I got up bright and early to take him a little bit more this morning. I have learned from Tracie and other friends that you don't want to feed him too much so he doesn't colic. We are hoping to get a halter on him soon and bring him closer to the house so we can keep a closer eye on him.

We are just focused right now on getting him better and having the vet come out and check him. 
We are praying for this little guy that nothing serious is going on with him, just that he needs to continue eating and giving him lots of love!

I get off early tomorrow so I am hoping I get to spend a little more time with him and us get used to each other.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and start to their week! I miss everyone when I don't get the chance to blog!

I will soon have more time because there is only 7 weeks left til wedding week!!
