I LOVE to be pampered and well groomed by my people. I have a habit of making faces when they find the right spot! I can be a ham and I love to play hard with the guys, although I do get nervous and anxious in new situations. My problem is that I have back issues. They call it “Kissing Spine” which I’m told can be helped by injections and therapy. I have no job and cannot work due to back pain so I cannot afford the therapy I need and I have no adoption prospects. My NEER family is full with needy horses so I am asking for help. Do you or someone you know have back problems? If so, then maybe you are my Kindred Spirit.

Smirk is a beauty and arrived at NEER North. After retiring from racing, he spent the last 5 years teaching students all about horse care at Essex Technical HS.

Currently barefoot and up to date on shots, coggins, and teeth. Smirk enjoys turn out with mares or geldings.

Looking to adopt out within New England.
