UPDATE: Wednesday 7/29/09 – We have found a permanent home for Caritas with Jane Morley of Schuyler, VA. Jane is also taking home “Cat”! Thank you Jane for helping these two wonderful horses find good homes. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for this to happen. We have had many people forwarding on the information about Caritas to all their contacts. We could not save these horses without your help. Please spread the good news that two more horses have great homes.
UPDATE Monday 7/20/09: We have found a temporary foster home for Caritas but we need to find a permanent home for him. Please call if you can help. He is FREE to a good home with a donation to a rescue and reimbursement to his foster home.
UPDATE: We only have one more day to find a home for this horse. His feet will be fine. There is no rotation. He just needs bar shoes and daily care until his feet grow out. Call ASAP if you have the resources and can offer this horse a safe home. We will help you resell him if it does not work out or if you only want to foster this horse. He is kind, gentle and sweet. His owners care enough not to sell him to low end racing but they need him to find another home now or he will be euthanized.
Caritas is a 2005, 15’2+ hand Thoroughbred gelding. He is very stout and has alot of growing left to do. He does have feet issues and he is being treated for white line disease at the moment. His feet currently do not bother him but he will always need special care and special shoes in order for his feet to stay good. He has been hand walking for 60 days now. He is very nice to be around. His groom calls him a big teddy bear. His legs are clean they had just put bandages on hims our contact arrived to take photos. The bandages are just for protection in his stall.
He needs a home ASAP or there is talk of euthansia. His vet was there and said there should be no problem with him transitioning to the show world with proper foot care. We do not like to give away horses so we want a donation to a Thoroughbred rescue group and proof that you can offer him a great home. He is listed on our BARGAIN BARN page as well.
