I have a beautiful solid bright bay w/a blaze (reg. APHA) TB/Paint 16.2H that I am looking to find a great home for. He has navicular, but is currently in pads and corrective shoeing. He also has osteoarthrits in his left hock. We had his hocks injected last fall and that did help. We were able to use him for light riding on the flat. The vet recommended a dose of bute 2 hours before we ride.
He is the sweetest horse and would make a fantastic companion or babysitter. He may be able to be used for light riding on the flat for a person who is on the lighter side - but there are some days he is more sore than others so I can not say he is 100% sound. He has no vices and gets long well with other horses. Loves to play, but is low man in the herd. He is great in crossties, as well as for the farrier. He'll stand there and let you clip his face all day long. He loves attention, and has the most wonderful temperament! Very easy way about him.
I have pictures I can forward if anyone would like to see him, or email me with any questions you may have. I just want to find a home for him where he will be loved and cared for, as he is pretty special guy!
