Description

Due to some unfortunate financial and family health circumstances, my dad is no longer able to keep me. He loves me very much, and wants what is best for me, so he would like to find me the best home ever where I can receive the attention I deserve.

I am a retired police horse. I have been in the Rose Parade and have been very proud of my job. I have had supervised 5 year old children on me and, and have done everything that was asked of me. I have been treated with love and kindness. I get along with all other horses, and have no bad habits.

Sometime last year, I sustained an eye injury. No one knows what happened but it is painful for me, and my dad does not have the money to have it removed. I would not mind being a one-eyed horse. I just need someone who is patient and knows I have to look at my surroundings before asking me to do something. I am a little scarred not being able to see from both sides, but once I know what you want, then my confident self will shine. I love to please. Because I may spook until I become comfortable with my surroundings, and what you are asking of me, I am not suitable as a children’s horse, but great for a knowledgeable intermediate adult. Once I trust you, I will do anything for you.

Other than my eye that should be removed, I am completely healthy and sound. I do have a pigeon toe, but that has never bothered me. I will need an experienced farrier to make sure I stay comfortable at my effortless trot. I am very handsome with a typical Appaloosa attitude. I am a thinker, a pleaser, and affectionate. If you are looking for your next superstar, here I am!

Serious inquiries only please.
