Rooney was abandoned at a boarding stable in Tennessee. Thin and in desperate need for love and attention, the owners of the boarding stable took over his care and have worked with Gentle Spirit Horses to get Rooney into our program. They've just trimmed his feet, had his teeth floated (he had nasty hooks digging into his cheeks, hence the weight loss), and he's now in a stall receiving extra food and care. He is well broke, but will need an intermediate rider once he's back up to weight (150-200 pounds to gain at least) and has not been evaluated for riding by GSH due to his weight. Because of his weight issues, his initial adoption fee is $200 and we will require weekly pictures until he is up to a BCS of 5. Alternatively, once he's gained the weight back and we can evaluate his riding ability and temperment better, we will be re-evaluating his adoption fee to reflect his training. He needs sponsors and/or a new home - please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping this boy out!
