We are happy to announce that Muffie and Cooper are now home with In The Woods Animal Rescue in Prairie River, Alberta. Click here to read their story. We are so thrilled that they were both able to find a new home together. They are so deserving and we send a big thank you to Sherry for seeing that in them!
HEIGHT: Approx 15.2hh
RIDER LEVEL: Advanced
SUITABILITY: Companion, light riding
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, BC
ADOPTION FEE: FREE to approved home
Cooper is a handsome older Paint gelding who arrived at the rescue on July 13, 2015 after being rescued from slaughter. We were told he came down from Lillooet with Muffie and a bunch of cattle, but were given no other details about him.
We estimate that he is 20+ years old, though it is hard to tell as he has many broken teeth. He stands approx 15.1hh with a nice build and good bone. He was quite thin on arrival, but his rehab is coming along nicely so far. He has put on a ton of weight, has had his hooves trimmed and even enjoyed two massage therapy sessions! He still requires more weight and muscle tone, but he is looking loads better.
Cooper is very easy-going and sweet old boy. He has good manners, is easy to halter and handle, good for the farrier, gets along well with other horses and loves attention. We hopped on him the other day and he was very quiet with a rider.
This boy has been through a lot in his life and really deserves a safe and loving home with a family of his own. He is sound and healthy and would be suitable for light riding and as a companion.
Cooper is located in Maple Ridge and is FREE to an approved home. He is being offered with a 30-day trial period so he can complete his rehab and ensure that he is a good fit for his new family and vice versa. Contact us today if you are interested in giving him a family!
