“Rapala is one of the coolest horses I know. I originally got him as a resale project but he quickly stole my heart. He will be staying right here! I have big plans for him this year. He is taking it easy this winter just to relax and be a horse. He has changed so much since I first got him. He is now MY horse! At first he wouldn’t let anyone near his hind end. He kicked and bit a lot. Today he stood like a champ to be body clipped. I just enjoy having him in the barn. Almost a month ago I thought I was going to lose him when he colicked really bad from a cecal impaction. Thanks to my vet for taking him in at the clinic, Rapala is happy and healthy. It was very scary! He has such a wonderful personality.” -Abbie F.
