    Default Lovely TB Gelding - Great Companion Horse

    I am looking for a forever retirement home for Truman, my 17 y.o. TB gelding. I retired Truman to a retirement boarding farm in Crimora, VA in October 2007. He has made the transition to living outside (in a pasture with three other horses and a nice run-in shed) and to wearing no shoes and he’s doing great! He’s in great health – just wasn’t sound enough to keep being a show horse. He still gets fed twice a day, but is on no supplements and is happy as a clam living outside with his buddies. He would make a great companion horse because he gets along with everybody and is the peacemaker in his pasture. I am looking for a home for him because I am about to put my two year old in full training and I’m a banker who has survived three rounds of lay-offs, but not sure how much longer I can afford to keep Truman on my pay-roll. I am only willing to give him to a great home because he’s been my good buddy for 10 years! Here is a link to pictures of Truman. The most recent ones are from April 2008 when I visited him in VA:

    Just because "some people" have 200 beautiful acres...doesn't mean "they're" going to overload those 200 acres with horses (herd or otherwise) since there are only two of us. What would be the point in adopting several horses when you can't give all of them adequate one-on-one attention?

    "200 acres" does not mean multi-millionaires who can afford dozens of horses. No need to be snarky.
    If wishes were horses then beggars would ride...
