Maverick is a handsome young (6) registered quarter horse with a winning disposition and remarkable presence, with whom I fell in love last fall almost immediately upon acquiring him. He is kind and wiling, forward moving on trail and ultimately safe, yet with the spunk and curiosity of a horse who loves what he does.He will cross any bridge any creek or river.He is traffic safe and gets along with any horse he has been rode with of ponied.He has little formal arena training and did spend some time at the rodeo roping and in the hills of vt rounding up wild stock , but he and I have spent most of our time (and a lot of that!) on the trail for the last 9 months.
Now the rub: Recently he showed some discomfort in his front end, and the vet has given me the bad news that he suffers from caudal heel pain. She assured me that, with bar or flip flop shoes and a low dose of bute, he would be perfectly serviceable for what I wanted to do with him, i.e. trail ride. Although I was willing to make the investment in keeping him going, the conditions at home do not promise success. Everywhere I can turn him out involves serious hill work, a creek, and mud, and my farrier has told me that he will never be able to keep on the special shoes unless I keep him in the barn and/or find a flat dry place to turn him out. This is not possible in my situation.
Alternatives of selling him at auction or not disclosing his condition to a new owner are not acceptable to me, so I am putting this out, hoping that someone out there will be wiling to invest in this wonderful horse, as I would be under different stabling circumstances.
A good home is a must!
He is utd on everything
