Re-Adopted: April 19, 2016
After his adopter found herself unable to continue to care for Salty, he has found himself a new home! He will be going to live with a mare he used to be stabled with and will have several acres to live out his days on.
HEIGHT: Approx 16.1hh
RIDER LEVEL: N/A
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, BC
ADOPTION FEE: FREE to approved home
Salty is a 28 year old Thoroughbred gelding who stands around 16.1hh. This boy is extremely special and has taken quite a path to end up here at J&M Acres, but he is now ready to move on to his final forever home.
He has been vetted and is healthy as to be expected for his age. He does have arthritis and a fluid build up in his knee and cannot be ridden, but he is pasture sound and there is no reason that this handsome and fun-loving old man should be overlooked for a companion. He is such a complete and total joy to have around and really brightens up our day :) He is a very talkative boy and greets us whenever we go out to the yard.
This boy loves being in pasture and gets stressed in a paddock or stall environment due to the years of confinement during his racing days. He gets along well with other horses and would be a great partner for another senior or would make an excellent baby-sitter for a younger horse.
