    5* COMPANION HOME NEEDED


    Heckington

    We are looking for a Companion Home for our 14 year old, 16hh, bay TB gelding.

    For the last 2 1/2 years he has been a much loved, spoilt member of our family, but due to a change in our circumstances and my daughter leaving for university we are no longer in a position to keep him.

    This is a heart-breaking decision and a 5* home is needed for this special boy.

    He is an ex-racer with a lovely temperament.
    Unfortunately 5 months ago he was diagnosed with kissing spine in 3 vertebrae (not touching) and has been treated with steroids in his back, sacrilliac and hocks.
    Although he is showing positive signs of progress at this stage we do not know whether he will go on to make a full recovery.
    My daughter has followed his rehabilitation to the letter and has built up his fitness to now be ridden.
    Sadly, we are running out of time before my daughter leaves for university and because the process has been slow and we've had a few setbacks, we feel the best way forward would be to offer him as a companion horse.

    He is really sociable and would thrive best with other horses around him.

    I am not in a position to retire him myself and it just isn't an option to PTS, so we are hoping someone with their own facilities might be able to offer him a loving home.
    We love this gorgeous boy beyond words and we only want the best for him. He really is a special horse and it's so sad that this amazing all-rounder is unable to continue his future as a dressage diva. as we do feel that any strenuous activity would put his health at a disadvantage.
