Horse    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    VIDEO LINK INCLUDED. PLEASE, take the time to read this thoroughly. We are looking to place this 16H TB gelding in a forever home with references, including a statement from a veterinarian that he is going to a safe situation. He had a successful show career in walk trot canter hunt seat classes and cross rails at the open level with a pleasant way of going and a nice simple lead change. This gelding requires a steady, quiet and experienced rider as he will shy occasionally at strange objects if the environment is dark or he is startled, which may be attributed to developing cataract issues. He age is estimated from 20-25 years old, but the ... (Read More)picture was taken 8/5/15, and is current. The video link below is as of 9/11/15 and is for soundness and temperament reference ONLY. He had not been ridden in several years prior to this video. This horse has had no notable soundness issues while in our care, but had always been ridden with shoes on. He is currently barefoot. I cannot warrant what his soundness would be barefoot under exertion or rough terrain, but he does have a nice round foot. At our farm, he has always gotten along well with other horses. His owner abandoned him which resulted in legal action against her. Interested parties may private message me with questions, or schedule an appointment to see him. This horse has otherwise maintained excellent health during his few years here since he was abandoned, but he is need of dental work. We will not demonstrate the horse under saddle other than ground handling, or turnout. Please once again, he is being represented as a COMPANION HORSE ONLY. Because he is unregistered, he is not eligible for adoption with the major TB placement agencies. I have contacted numerous additional adoption agencies who are all full at this time. Interested parties can private message me for more details. Thank you for your consideration. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Ohio
    Horses can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. Horses are beautiful, romantic animals that many people love. Sadly, however, horses are being neglected, abused, and abandoned at an alarming rate. The reasons a horse would need to be rescued are quite varied. Some horse owners in the Western U.S. have lost their homes and land to foreclosure, leaving nowhere for their horses to go. These horses are sometimes abandoned in the plains and deserts, where they often die of slow exposure. Droughts, rising food and fuel prices, and other economic pressures mean that some owners can no longer afford to feed and care for their horses. Other horses are purchased by inexperienced people for sentimental reasons or as gifts for children, but their owners are unprepared for the ongoing expense and involvement of caring for the horses.

    Like horses, donkeys and mules (sterile hybrids of a horse and a donkey) have their own charm and usefulness. However, these animals have also been affected by hay shortages and some have sadly become victims of abuse or neglect.
