Sky is a stunningly handsome Paint Mustang orphaned at 3 weeks old from N. New Mexico. Sky received notoriety for his will to survive in the Albuquerque Journal after being found, barely alive, following a brutal attack by a pack of wild dogs. After months of rehabilitation, Sky is now a very healthy and active five month old.
Sky is very friendly, curious, active, and confident in new situations. He is easily haltered and leading at the walk. He stands for grooming and hoof cleaning. He has received extensive socialization by humans and horses since his arrival at our rescue, and learning respect for both.
Sky receives regular farrier care, and is scheduled for his gelding and first round of vaccinations by the end of November. At 10 months old, Sky is a little over 14 hands and weighs about 600 pounds. This young Paint is very athletic and is demonstrating a love for running. He will benefit from a confident leader who is skilled at starting young horses, and who can provide him a strong balance of love and redirection for testing behaviors. He has presented as crypto-orchid and will be having a comprehensive gelding surgery at the end of March.
This playful, fun, loving guy will make a wonderful equine partner! Adoption fees apply to an approved home.
