He has typical stallion behaviour. He has not had much training, so does not understand manners. He is not dangerous to someone who is a knowledgeable handler of horses.

He most likely does not know his name. Approach with food may be helpful.

MORE ON CIDER'S PAST - THE REST OF THE STORY

Rather than trim their overgrown hooves, he hung them from the ceiling of the barn!

PENNSLYVANIA: Clarion County Sheriff Department raided a Bright Future's Farm and found 11 Tennessee Walking Horses in decaying circumstances that would shock anyone!  For three years all of the horses were kept inside this dark and filthy barn, never seeing the light of day. They were negelcted, starved, standing in their own filth and had very little human contact.

To make it worse the man hung six of the horses from the barn just because their feet got too long. Really??? Only one of those horses survived and it was Cider. The rest were immediately euthanized. 

The Clarion County District Attorney was to file 5 charges against the owner of the horses. The penalty for those charges added up to a mere maximum fine of $700 per charge. For all of this horrible treatment of these majestic animals the man only received a slap on the hand because animal cruelty is a misdemenor. 

Update

We read on the internet that several horses are still alive and fighting to live and find peace. We are not sure that can ever happen but we sure hope that it does. 

Cider, the only horse to survice the hanging in the barn, is doing better but remains unsure of how to behave in his new surroundings. He has had so much to learn about trusting humans. Now he is gone! Poof! He is not in his safe haven any longer. 

The black stallion went into an emotional tizzy when he was let outside. He was so emotional and needed his human by his side to deal with his new situation. 

They do love to interact with people and love to be groomed. Let's hope for the ones who are still safe that whey will find forever love and trust one day.

Now, we need your help finding Cider. Poor baby. What is he going through now?
