He was previously "Angel", but it seems that he is not very well endowed as the seller, the auctioneer, us and our farrier all missed the fact that he is indeed a gelding until late last week. What can I say, we aren't perfect!
He is a very sweet boy who has great manners and is an absolute doll, but unfortunately he is quite sore in his fronts and that he had a bout of laminitis, but we also noticed a bit of scar tissue in one of his fetlocks.
He has been moving around better since his trim, but he is still sore. In order to determine the actual cause of his soreness, we are looking to get x-rays done on his front legs. Hopefully, they will tell us more of the story and will help us determine what the course of action will be to hopefully getting him sound.
We are needing to raise approx $500 to cover the cost of his x-rays.
UPDATE: Would like to say a huge thank you to Joe S. for his amazing donation of $500 to cover the cost of Angelo's x-rays! We cannot thank you enough for your generosity. I think I can safely say, my faith in humanity has once again been restored. We will update you all on the results of the x-rays once we get him booked in.
