GOLIATH was one of our April Bucket Fund babies.  To read the original story, click here.

Goliath is just over a month old and he is HUGE.  Although he is doing very well, because if his huge growth spurts, his front legs are still needing support.  So, he is back in splints during the day.  We tried to get some comparison pics so you could see how large he is for a month old foal!

The volunteers at LRTC are doing EVERYTHING with him!  This boy trailers, halters, showers, does chores, drinks from an automatic waterer, meets friends… he is very, very socialized!


He is a month old here! He is as tall as a 55 gallon drum! This kind of growth is why he is having issues with his legs.

This LRTC volunteer is 5’4″ – and in love with Goliath. They all are…

Figuring out how to eat grass with splints.

Hanging out. (I am amazed at this guy. He is a month old! Such confidence and calm!)

Meeting the grown up horses.

Drinking from the automatic waterer!

Getting ready for bed.

A volunteer stays with him all night.

They mess with him all day long… he does chores and plays games with everyone… here he is with a baby saddle pad on… Ha!

Goliath trailer training.  It looks worse than it was.  He loads twice a day, every day.  He spends time at pasture with games, other horses and volunteers during the day – and sleeps at night in the safety of the barn.
