Kernel is a grade gelding estimated to have been born in 2007. He came to the farm in 2017 with three other horses who were all in an extreme neglect situation. Kernel was in very poor condition when he arrived. Luckily, he seems to have physically recovered. Emotionally, his situation was very hard on him as well as his other three friends. Kernel is a big guy with the confidence of a tiny mouse. For the past year, we have been working with him on boundaries and confidence building. If Kernel could crawl in your pocket for comfort, he would. He is a gentle guy with a cocky sense of humor. He loves to hang out with horse mate Cami and you can see her kind of roll her eyes at his antics. Kernel can quickly get himself into a lot of trouble. We hope to see his confidence continue to grow as he understands he is safe and is now in his permanent home with us.
“Life is kind of interesting. I know people think I’m just out here chasing butterflies around or something but actually I have a lot to think about. It just takes me a while to figure things out. But once I do, I can be a good role model and leader. Just wait, I’ll show them all.”
