Friendly and Sweet Companion Horse
Snickers is an cute 10 yr old 14.2hh quarter horse gelding being sold as a companion horse only! He has a gorgeous dappled buckskin coat and markings. He has a extra lovable temperament adores attention is easy to catch stands well tied trailers well and is nice for the veterinarian and farrier. He is safe around children for grooming and bathing. He is a very easykeeper and gets along with other horses typically low in the pecking order. He is up to date on all vaccinations has had his teeth floated yearly and has had a fecal testing done and been effectively dewormed. He has nice little feet and has been trimmed every 810 weeks since we got him. We would love to keep him because he is such a lovely little horse but cant due to the type of program we operate on a small ranch. We will rehome to a great lifetime home only. Free to a nice home! He developed a lameness last winter 2018 and after multiple veterinary evaluations and radiographs we found out that he unfortunately has some significant arthritis in his neck that is causing some neurological issues in his legs. Snickers will probably not be safe to ride due to the neurological issues and will likely need some supplements antiinflammatories chiropractic or acupuncture treatment to keep him comfortable as he ages. He does not seem to be in significant pain now but is not currently ridable as he is a little stumbly and not completely aware of where is feet are. With joint injections and more advanced veterinary treatment it might be possible for him to get better if you are willing to invest significant funds... Prior to the lameness we used him as a children lesson horse for trail rides and to move cattle. Let me know if you are interested in giving this sweet boy a forever home!
