Companion 7 y.o. gelding free to good home - Kennett Square, PA
I have a 7 y.o. TBxWB 16 hh gelding that is a great horse in every way except I can't keep him sound to ride. He is still sound in hand, so no concerns about a pasture life and otherwise very healthy. Has lived in fields with geldings and mares with no problems. Middle of the pack. Very easy to handle, clips, ties, etc. Currently OK barefoot, UTD on vaccines, low fecal egg shedder so doesn't need much deworming. Easy keeper. Maybe could be OK for walking trail rides (he goes out on the buckle, no spook), but no guarantee about soundness.
Any ideas as to what is causing his soundness issues?
It could be anything from simply needing shoes to something like a torn collateral ligament. At this point it will take an MRI to diagnose. I am currently giving him some time with shoes and rest, but its been a long road of many problems with him. If you are interested in taking him on as a project, please call me and we can talk more in depth. 650-380-3399.
