Special Criteria

Roy is a big, handsome chestnut gelding, born in 1992 who came to us all the way from New York State back in 2004. His owner had died and Roy had fairly serious hoof problems that his owner's family did not know how to deal with. Our excellent in-house farrier was able to help Roy's feet a lot and he has stayed pasture sound all these years. He has been a very happy horse living with his other gelding friends - he is much more content without the complication of mares in his life. He is also slightly neurological, so we haven't considered him rideable. He is friendly, good looking, full of charisma, and just an all-around nice guy. If you are looking for a pasture pal with a few special needs, but a lot of love still to give, Roy might just be the one.
