Need help finding a home for my rescue horse Buck
Cross posting this everywhere – please pass on to friends who are horse people. Thanks
I am looking at ways to cut monthly costs. Right now I’m spending roughly $100 a month on feed alone for him.
Ideally, I would like him to go to a home where he will have his own paddock area, because as low man in the herd – he will let anyone else get his feed. He MUST be fed a good feed daily, he does best on a complete pellet because of his teeth. Right now I have him on a local feed and I am seeing major improvement. He can not chew or process normal hay or long grass.
I will give him to the right home, BUT I have to KNOW that he won’t be starved again. If I can’t find a good home, I’ll have him put down rather than see him starve.
He is a gentleman both in hand and under saddle. He has a very forward swingy walk, a nice trot and a canter that doesn’t let your butt hit the saddle. He likes to go and has a TON of heart. He is tall enough for a man, and I think that with some more filling in, would be just fine for a husband horse. In his current weight, he is ideal for a woman or up to a teenager. I don’t think he would be good for a timid rider, as he has a good bit of GO and likes to move on out.
IF he goes to someone I don’t know, references will be required and checked. Sorry, but I have put a LOT of money and effort into saving this horse and like I said before would rather him be put down than to see him starve again. I know that’s harsh, but that’s just how it is.
