Bosco :: Horse of the Month

Bosco is a Percheron/Quarter Horse gelding born in 2001.

His previous owner asked us if we would find a good home for him, he had to move up from Texas because he is allergic to the coastal hay.

This is a very well-loved and cared for horse. However, as can happen with any horse, the worst has happened to Bosco.

Bosco Before

While romping with the other horses in June 2015, Bosco ran into a tree. He broke his shoulder and injured his face. Bosco could barely eat for months and the wound refused to completely close.

The Board of Directors had hoped to raise the funds first to cover this big medical cost, but after deliberation....we decided that Bosco must have surgery one way or another.

Our reasoning is that Bosco is not adoptable with a serious facial/nasal issue and he can not live the that huge hole that you could hear him breathing through. Also, with summer approaching, we really needed the repair completed before flies come out in full force. So we have given Bosco the surgery he needed!

He stands 15.2hh and weighs 1234lbs. He has good ground manners, is easy to worm and stands well for the farrier.

We had floated his teeth and begun a regular maintenance schedule.
