Taxi is a very fancy Paint gelding born in 1998. He had a very loving home before coming to Best Friends and as a consequence he really likes being around people. He has a medical condition called Wobblers Syndrome which is basically a compression of the spinal cord in his neck. It causes him to be less steady on his feet than most horses, but most of the time you could never know by watching him, as he usually gets around just fine in the pasture. It does make him ineligible for riding or for most types of groundwork, but he still loves to hang out and be loved on. He has been quite particular about his pasture mates but is now living with two beautiful mares and everything is going well with their little family unit. If you are experienced with horses with special needs and willing to give this boy a lot of love, he could definitely beautify your life!
