Adopted: April 14, 2011
This big gorgeous boy is now at his new home just over the border, where he is loved and adored by his new Mom and the rest of the family.
His new Mom says that he is awesome and that he seems happy. Her young daughter even borrowed a bunch of books from the library about horses because she wants to help take care of him.
They have been working to turn him into a nice Western pleasure gelding and he has been doing great! He seems to enjoy the slower pace and all is well with his ankle.
It turns out, his foot issue (the reason why he was dumped and almost killed) was simply due to an abscess that hadn't come through yet. Now that that has cleared up, he has been perfectly sound. Thank you Kirsten for giving him the chance he deserved!
Tommy is a 7 year old, registered Thoroughbred gelding. He is a big, tall boy and stands roughly 17.2hh-18hh. His full registered name with the Jockey Club is Turbo Tommy. His birthdate is February 18, 2004. His show name is Obi Wan Kenobi.
He has been off-and-on sound for the past few months and his owners were going to send him to auction at the end of the week if he was not sold. Thank You to Julia and your family for speaking to the owners and having him surrendered as well as donating towards his care.
Tommy is dressage-trained and was shown hunter-jumper multiple times as well. Here is a video of Tommy under-saddle! He is an absolute sweetie and very aware of personal space, which is good for his size!
