Boo Boo is a 2-year old Standardbred cross colt. He is a solid bay with no markings and approximately 14.3hh.
He was rescued from auction in the summer of 2012 with his friend and paddock mate Yogi.
He is the product of 'Nurse Mares', where horses are bred so that they can produce milk and provide their milk to other more well-bred foals while their foals are weaned too early and given up or disposed of.
Boo Boo is on the small size and should mature to a medium/large pony height, it is believed that being weaned too early as well as being starved while in utero are contributing factors to his size and weight.
He currently lives outside 24/7 with a small herd of cows, a stallion and a couple of colts and geldings.
Boo Boo is an absolute love bug and loves attention. Boo Boo would do best with a stall in the winter months and some grain but is an easy keeper.
Boo Boo and Yogi have been together since they went through auction and we would love to see them adopted together, but we understand that may not be financially suitable for all adopters. We just want a loving home for Boo Boo where he will get the love and care he so desperately needs and should have received as a baby.
Most of our Rescue horses come with an option of a free lease trial for one month. If you are interested in free lease or fostering please contact the Rescue and find out how you can help us give another equine a Second Chance.
After the successful completion and approval of an adoption application, the horses will be micro chipped and come with an adoption contract.
Trailering is the responsibility of the adopter, we would be happy to put you in contact with individuals that we have used and trust.
