Barney is a 23 year old Arabian gelding who has been living with us for coming up on 5 years. He originally came for my partner to ride but had some dental issues and a strange abscess that came out on his neck then a bout of laminitis in the first year, so his health was not great. He was also incredibly hard to catch, if he saw you coming with a halter he would run circles around the paddock as there was no way he was going to let you get that halter on him. No traditional catching methods would work with Barney.
He has come a long way since then and is in great health, and yes he is able to be caught. He has also really come out of himself and is a real character. I am trying to upload a couple videos of him as he makes me laugh with his antics. He spends most of his time now doing his favourite past times which is mostly eating, sleeping with a bit of bossing the other horses around. Nobody can step outside the house without Barney calling out to them for some food or a treat.
He will always have a place with us as part of our herd.
