Charlie was abandoned at only 18 months old at an agistment property. He was just turned out as landowners could not find the owner. He had not seen other horses for five years when the property sold. He faced being shot where he stood, with no one wanting an unhandled, 18HH thoroughbred. FNQ Foster Farms came to the rescue. We had to walk the farm to find him and load him on a truck to bring him home. His feet had not been done for years and were huge. He was so excited to see another horse, he had thought he was the only one left on the planet.
Charlie was so kind-hearted and easy to work with and ride. We successfully re-homed him to a home daycare and became their mascot. He was a big, gentle giant who loved kids and would suck on their hair if they stood too close to the fence. Charlie was the start of the FNQ Foster Farms story, but it doesn’t end there.
