Blue is a 2010 Virginia Range (NV) mustang gelding who came to AAE March of 2017 after a request for assistance from the Virginia Range Wild Horse Sanctuary and Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund. Blue had been carrying around a large mass of proud flesh (granulation tissue) over his left rear fetlock/pastern area for some time. Although he had been haltered and handled some previously, he was not halterable when he arrived at AAE, and we knew we had a big job ahead in helping Blue.
Blue is available for adoption to the perfect, forever home. He needs a person that is mustang experienced, patient, and has no expectations other than providing a safe, caring home. Keep in mind, he lived on the open range for years, and he does not enjoy confinement. Here, he lives in a herd environment on about 10 acres. He comes in every morning and every evening at feeding time. He is somewhat social, but still skeptical of humans. Given the choice, he'd prefer a free-roaming life with occasional visit to two-leggers. Blue give his feet for cleaning, and he is ok with the farrier when trimmed in a small paddock. He's pretty good with all hooves, but the front right is still an effort. His leg is check regularly for any recurrence of his sarcoid. Fortunately, we are still sarcoid free, and his scar is about the size of a quarter.
Blue is up to date with vaccines, deworming, hoof and dental care, and he has a microchip in place.
