Liam is our happy baby. Being only two years old, he “goes with the flow” and is very curious, even nosy. Once, when he saw our horse Flip (a former grand prix champion) cantering, he started to copy him. But Liam didn’t know how to maneuver his body or how to properly move his legs. So, he was as clumsy in his canter as Flip was elegant. Sometimes, Liam makes us laugh. Yet, we have hopes that he can be a great horse for riding someday, after he is trained.
However, it wasn’t until recently that Liam’s future looked so bright. He was one of the young horses that were brought from Iowa to a kill pen in Texas. The animals were supposed to be sold for meat to Mexico; but, fortunately, they were rescued. And here he is, living on the farm, hanging around with Flip and helping our clients to walk through their stories.
Liam is one of those horses that clients can brush, touch, or walk and one that even children can safely approach. This horse is very interactive with people and very welcoming. You can almost feel Liam’s energy, as if he is saying, “Hi! You are in my space. Come on in!”
