Alex RB

Hi there, my name is RB! RB stands for Redbone, but since there was already a Red when I came to Special E, we decided to shorten it to avoid some confusion. It doesn't help that I am the same color as SEVERAL of the other horses around here!

Anyway, I am a very sweet boy and I love my people. My favorite thing, however, is hanging out in the pasture with my friend Houston! If he is ever in class without me you might hear me whinnying to him because I miss him so much! 

I was used for several years by Special E as a therapeutic riding horse, and was very good at it too! Recently, however, the instructors started noticing that I acted like I was in pain when I was being ridden. The staff took me to the vet and discovered I have something called "kissing spine". Because of this I have not been able to be ridden and have to go through a lot of conditioning so I can hopefully have a corrective surgery! The staff and working students have done such a great job with me, and hopefully I will be better soon!
