About Obie

Obie was surrendered to Bluebonnet when his owners were investigated for neglect.  It seems he had not had much handling before coming to Bluebonnet.

History

It appears Obie had not been handled much before coming to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Obie’s growth appears to have been stunted due to malnutrition.  He also has an old injury to his jaw.  His veterinarian does not feel like this is causing him problems now and should not cause him problems in the future.

Evaluation and Training

Obie is young and learning ground manners right now.

Like many young horses, Obie bites.  He is improving with consistent handling but may test a new handler. 

He also is very aggressive towards dogs and cats and should not go to a home where dogs or cats have access to the horses.
