Zed was found estray.  When his owners were not located, he was placed with BEHS.  When Zed arrived, he was not catchable or touchable.  It appeared that he had very little handling in his life and whatever handling he had had been traumatic.  His foster home worked daily with him, using clicker training, to get him to come around.  She taught him to approach, touch her hand and other targets, and let her pet him.  She used clicker training to get a rope on him and eventually to halter him.  Sadly, one afternoon she walked out and found that he had died during the day in his stall.  Because he had not been handlable, he had not been vetted so no one knows if he had an underlying health problem.  Zed’s foster home says that he was a special horse that she will never forget.
