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 one year old gelding.

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 has been gelding and received his yearly vaccinations. At one years old, Sky is a little over 14 hands and weighs about 550 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.

This playful, fun, loving guy will make a wonderful equine partner! Adoption fees apply to an approved home.
