Three Horses Need New Home

June 15, 2019

The family can no longer afford to keep these horses.  The barn where these horses are currently stabled is closing and a new home (or homes) must be found soon.  

 

Roman is a 9 year old and 16.2 hand chestnut OTTB. He is completely blind in his right eye (but can see shadows) and 1/4 of the way blind in his left. Currently he is a show horse.  He gets around just fine and the owner has never had any issues with his blindness. He does dressage and jumpers and he loves both and tries his heart out. Roman is suitable for intermediate with a trainer and up as he can be forward at times. He has jumped up to 3’3 but ideally he will go to a non-jumper home or a low level eventing home (under 2’6). Roman is very traffic safe.  He has seen everything from tractor tailors, to bikes, to barking dogs and never once did he spook. On the trails Roman tends to be the “leader” but will also happily follow behind the pack.  He can be forward at times on trails also. Roman goes trough water, over bridges (even steel deck bridges) and through tight areas without much hesitation. He is an easy keeper... but does require front shoes as his feet are on the softer side like most TBs.

 

Next is Legend, also a OTTB. He is 16 and 16.3 hands.  Has some arthritis in front knees and was her gaming horse.  Because of this he is limited to pasture pet or walking trails, but does require and experienced rider as he can be pushy, forward and hasn’t been ridden in years. He is on msm and has not had any lameness issues but the vet has recommended light work to slow his knees from getting much worse.

The third one is Sync. He is a 16 hand, 8 year old OTTB. The owner got him last May and he has had soundness issues every since.  He is a wonderful gentle horse and he may get better with rehab.  Sync was a dressage and eventing horse but he has been sitting in the pasture for a few months now. We recently found out that he had surgery on the track and has two screws above his front right fetlock. He has had soundness issues off and on for the past few months. The vet says he has a 50/50 chance of being completely sound again. When in work Sync requires 4 shoes due to soft soles. Sync is a VERY in your pocket type horse. He is exceptionally smart and a very very quick learner. He is one of the safest and most sane horses I have ever met. Sync has been ridden bareback and bridle-less many times and he listens to your cues perfectly. The owner occasionally hops on him and he remembers all of his previous work.  He frames up very easily and will also stretch down when asked. He would make a perfect horse for a young child to learn the basics on or just to be a pasture pet. If Sync does return to being 100% sound he could really go in any direction. He has barrel raced, done western pleasure, dressage, jumping and trails. Nothing phases this horse, he is very broke. 

 

 First 4 pics are Roman, next 3 are Sync and last 2 are Legend.  If you have room for one of these horses please send us a message and we will connect you with the owner.
