Jorge

There is a horse on the San Jose del Tajo RV park property that no one seems to care for.  So, we went over and introduced ourselves to him.  Since he couldn't tell us what his previous name was, and no one else seemed to know, we decided to call him Jorge.

After we'd been caring for Jorge for a month, he was looking much better.  Andrew has taken him for a couple of short rides,  and Jorge handles very well.  He is a well trained horse.

Jorge was decidedly under nourished and neglected.  We fed him, brushed him, cleaned him up, and now (after just one week), he already looks much better.  When we move somewhere we can have a horse of our own, we might try to track down his previous owners, but for now, we'll enjoy his company.

The following two shots show the difference a bit of rain can bring.  The one on the left shows how dry the area was when we first arrived in Guadalajara.  The one on the left is after just one week of the June rains.
