    Default Companion Horse - Central NC

    I know this is a long shot, but I know this horse and he is not "ready to go". The stallion he is a companion to is being euthanized and if a home is not found, he will be, too... Not the worst fate, but -

    We call him Henry. He is a 16h, big bodied, easy keeping tatooed bay TB gelding. He was rescued by a friend two years ago, BS 2, deplorable feet/teeth AND two grossly swollen/deformed/dropped rear fetlocks. His story ( who knows what is true except the last part) was that he had been an event horse in Texas, then sold to a polo barn and used as a lesson horse, then traded to a professional polocrosse player here in NC who my friend got him from.

    She assumed due to his hind legs he would be unsound but he is not. Turns out his supensories are broke down but healed as they are, and it is not DSLD as assumed. During the two years she has had him they have not changed or deteriorated. He can be difficult to trim, not dangerous, you just have to go slowly.

    He could be sound for light riding but she has never tried, his value to her was as a companion to her aged stallion. He has been also turned out with other geldings and mares, he is Switzerland and gets along with everyone.

    I know its nearly impossible to find homes for these guys but I gotta try. He is a special horse and isnt ready to go, but she can not afford to keep him and would rather face burying him than worrying about him. A great home with references is a must. I am happy to answer any questions I can... His euth date is October 3rd.

    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.
