About Diego

Diego came to BEHS late in 2013 from a neglect case. When he arrived, he was shy and a little leery of humans, but he moved to a foster home who worked with him and helped him settle in. He was adopted a few months later and the foster home really was sad to see him go. He was returned in early 2015 because he wasn’t getting along with another horse in his home, and his previous foster home decided that this was her second chance to make him a permanent part of her life.  She returned him in 2018 when life took an unexpected turn.

History

Nothing is known of Diego’s history before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

Diego has no known health or lameness problems.

Evaluation and Training

When Diego arrived, it appeared that he had not been handled much prior to coming to BEHS.  He was a bit shy, but he didn’t seem to be at all aggressive.  His foster home has been working with him, and she says he’s now leading well, lets her catch him, and she can pick up his front feet.  She’s working on the back feet, too.  She says he’s very sweet and gentle and should make someone a wonderful horse.  He has the ability to do almost anything!
