Gold is looking for a companion home or a Sponsor for his care and a dedicated volunteer!
This gorgeous guy some how ended up at the kill lot. Then he thought he had a chance! He thought he was saved! He was sent to quarantine so that he could go to his new home and it was there that the something terrible happened! He almost ended up being put down! Fortunately for him, his new owner was told about PPER just in the nick of time and now with your help he can get that chance for a better life!
Gold was a registered Stud for the first 10 years of his lift. He was gelded at 10 yrs old.
Gold had a very serious injury that we were told happened in the quarantine lot, while he was waiting to go to his new owner. His tail was broken and ripped off and he had an impact fracture to his leg!
His new owner was overwhelmed and going to put him down! She contacted PPER and if we were not able to help him, his life would have ended then! We could not let that happen to this sweet, gorgeous, in your pocket boy.
Two different vets have seen him so far here. The tail is now granulated and we may not have to do the operation. Unfortunately radiography of his hoof and leg showed that there was a impact/crush injury that was not treated. It had been infected and the infection caused holes in the bones and arthritis. Because it is now too late to treat this injury, he has mechanical lameness. While Gold is pasture sound and could still do pony rides, he will never be truly rideable. Gold still requires creams to be put on to prevent sunburn and encourage hair growth, but his tail is fully covered by scar tissue now. Fortunately some hair is growing on that scar tissue but he does scratch it open without the hair to protect it. They do not make prosthetic tails for horses.
Gold is a very sweet in your pocket guy, he is bottom of the heard and loves his people time.
