Max is a 14 year old Appaloosa who arrived as an owner surrender on June 24 when his previous owner passing away. He was born on Vancouver Island and lived in a paddock with his mom for his entire life and was barely handled at his previous home, so he doesn't have very much life experience apart from the handling he has had since his arrival at J&M Acres. When Max arrived, he was a scared, unsocialized stallion but he has come a long way in the last six months.
Sincehis arrival he has been gelded and halterbroke and has been learning to trust more every day. He spent a brief period at a foster home for his gelding procedure, and she was able to work with him some more and even get a saddle on him.
Max will require an experienced horse person with a firm but gentle hand in order to continue his progress. We would love to see him go to a home that will further his training, but would also be happy to see him live out the rest of his days in a pasture with some buddies of his own (geldings preferably).
