Please help this older, well tempered horse find a home! Socks has been lovingly taken care of for 30 years by my Grandmother, until colon and liver cancer have left her in Emergency care. Unfortunately, my Grandmother will not be recovering from this condition due to her advanced age and chemotherapy treatments have been stopped. One of her last requests was that her horse, Socks was well taken care of. I can not currently afford the high boarding costs due to my recent unemployment. I'm reaching out, hoping that I can find someone who will love Socks as much as my Grandmother does.
Socks is a sweet horse, who loves to graze outdoors and interact with people and other animals. He may be older, but he can still canter and carry lighter riders. He loves apples, carrots and pears. Socks also has experience being around young children. I would suggest Socks to anyone who is looking for a companion horse, therapy horse, or a young rider's horse. Please remember, that I'm not selling this horse, he would be a donation. Any additional information about Sock's health can be provided. I can give out his veterinarian's and shoers contact information.
I do not wish to make any profit off of the horse, I just want to know that he is being taken care of. When he is adopted, I will include his blankets, saddles, brushes, and all other supplies that my Grandmother owns. If you, or anyone you know is interested in adopting Socks please contact HARPS! Thank you.
Here is some vital information about the horse:
Color: Brown and white (all white feet, hence the name "Socks")
Gelding: Not gelded
Height: 15 hands
Vaccination History: He is fully vaccinated and still being looked after by Bristol Vet Care in Bristol Wisconsin. Shoeing has been done monthly, and he is up to date on all shots.
Boarding: Currently being held at Don Bar Farms in IL. Boarded around other horses of all ages and gets along with them very well. Very social and outgoing horse.
Medical issues: Very healthy. The only concerns that Socks is facing currently are keeping on weight (he is currently taking and weight gain supplement) and his teeth are worn down. But, despite the condition of his teeth, he has a healthy appetite. He still goes out to the pasture 6 days a week.
