    Default SF Fisherman's Wharf driving horses need homes due to owner's sudden death

    Hello, this was sent to me today. I hope I am not violating COTH rules by posting. Please PM me and I will give you the contact info for these horses. These horses are currently at a boarding facility 45 minutes north of San Francisco.
    *********************************
    Due to the unexpected death of the operator of the carriage driving franchise at San Francisco's Fisherman's wharf area 3 horses are available for immediate adoption.

    Chester - Gray Percheron, around 12 to 14 year old gelding. Solid driving horse who has worked in the city for the last five years. Has also done parades. He is a sweetie.

    Colonel - Buckskin Draft/Quarter horse cross who looks more QH than draft. 7 year old gelding, really pretty and sweet. Colonel was being trained to work in the city but has not actually been driven there.

    Gilly - Bay Standardbred, 19 years old, has worked in the city for approx. 10 years. The horse that all the new drivers were given to start with.

    Thank you. I am just posting now on the ranch message board. . .
