    this is a bump!

    He arrived at my farm this weekend with no other alternatives for him. I am in no position to take him on as I already have 4 to feed! If anyone has the time/room/resources to give this guy a chance I think he would make a great prospect for someone. I have access to the radiographs if need be.


    Please anyone out there, please feel free to PM me- This horse deserves a great home and a person of his own.

    He has a fine demeanor and is HUGGGE! I can email pics to all those interested!

    Just a suggestion but Leighton Farms may be able to put you in touch with someone in MD that can help.

    Just bumping up I know it hasn't gone far down the page, but this is a really nice horse if someone wants to take the chance on him.

    He's very nicely bred, too (if the name on his photo is correct)... should be worth the chance!

    Someone has to want this nice boy

    Thanks for the bump. It is Steelix and he is a wonderfully handsome boy. Great home needed as he is still at my place- please PM me as of today he is still available.

    There is a pic on the Canter website under Mid-Atlantic.

    Thank you!!

    I wish this was 6 months later, he would have a home! Best of luck finding him a place. I am sure you will!

    You might try contacting Kelley Williams at a Bit Better Farm. I do not know if she is looking for any projects right now, but she is a talented trainer and has access to a dreamy facility.
