My back & hip continues to get worse; I’m unable physically to give 2 horses the care they need; so we’ve made the sad decision to re-home Romeo.
1st pic is May 2019, 2sd is a month after we got him.
He was sprung from Moore’s pens and was delivered to us on Feb 14, 2019. Auction said he was an 11 year old Morab. He’s about 15H3.
He came with 4 road shoes imbedded in his feet. His beautiful forelock and the front 6 inches or so of his mane shaved off; deathly ill (not Strangles) also according to my vet; 175 lbs underweight.
Auction said he “rides and drives”. He’s fatter now, and healthy but still needs some topline work.
He’s very well trained for what he knows. He comes when called. He knows no leg cues, and doesn’t neck rein. He listens, stands for mounting. He’s good for the farrier.
He’s sweet and well behaved.
He has an awesome “floaty trot” it feels almost like he’s gaited. He has great brakes. I have not loped (cantered) him. Last time he was ridden was Mother’s Day 2019.
He has the spinous process of a vertebrae broken off right where his neck meets his withers, my farrier says he probably can’t stick his neck out to do high jumps. He jumps our little stream all the time, (with no one on him) so he can do shorter ones maybe, I really don’t know.
I’m in Greencastle. I have no trailer. We want him to go to a caring home with a good job for him. He’s SO bored with life here; he’s young and wants something to do. I will miss him terribly; I told him when he came here that “even if we’re not a good fit, I will find you a safe place”
I will need updates from you.
