PROJECT HORSES ARE A LONG TERM COMMITMENT REQUIRING EXPERIENCED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE HOMES. Hector is a handsome young man with a lot of presence. His life has changed dramatically from his feral state through to his rehabilitation with us and Hector has made amazing progress in the last few months. He will, however, take time to adjust to the further changes that he faces. As the herd leader, he always had to be on guard and outwardly Hector may appear to be a bold horse, but when he worries inwardly he will display very subtle signs that act as a warning he is not happy. He needs an intuitive handler to recognise and pick up on these behaviours and consider how his former way of life shapes his behaviour. Despite his past , Hector is never nasty and he is learning to enjoy attention and cuddles from the people that he trusts. Hector will need time to settle into his new surroundings to prevent him from becoming anxious and reverting to flight mode. A regular routine with consistent handling will be crucial to help Hector adjust to his new way of life. Hector will make a rewarding project for a rehomer who has the time available to form a bond with him and perform plenty of ground handling with this green horse.
Despite being the herd leader and holding such a responsible role Hector is never nasty. He was completely unhandled and entire when he arrived, but he is a bright horse who has made considerable progress. He has now been gelded, however, it is important not to underestimate just how green and inexperienced he is and how his former life will shape his behaviour in new situations.
Hector came to Hall Farm as part of a welfare concern. A large group of horses were running wild and breeding indiscriminately on 140 acres of unfenced land.
