    Smile Stocking Stuffer - Hooper is ready for his Home

    ~~Another hopeful spin off from our Secret Santa Rescue thread~~

    A wonderful pony is ready for a wonderful home:
    Hooper came to USERL as an unhandled adult pony. He was starved and scared. Hooper has turned into a beauty. He will need to go to a home that can continue working with him on his training and trust issues.

    Please see Hooper's pretty pictures on USERL - Tidewater webpage

    Or contact Cother DVM2003 for more information on how you can bring Hooper home for Christmas!

    Thumbs up More information about Hooper!!

    "Hooper is a beautiful grey pony - I think he's about 7 years old and approximately 13-14 hands (but I'll have to check).

    He came to the rescue starved and unhandled. There are some pretty amazing pics on the SS thread of before and after.

    He is trained on the ground, but has not been broke to ride. Due to his past he is somewhat untrusting, but not mean.

    He would need a home with handlers that are experienced. He will not be an easy project.

    He was sedated for farrier visits, but as far as I know now does ok with the farrier as long as they are patient.

    He loves his vet (me but is not fond of needles. He is pretty easy to bribe with treats for vet work

    Let me know if there are other questions...he currently resides at a foster in Isle of Wight County Virginia

    Email for more information

    What a gorgeous, fancy looking pony! If his training was successful he could make some kid very happy!
