We received a call from a woman in Bakersfield who is desperately trying to find a home for a horse at her stable. He is a 15 year old Mustang gelding, who was caught in the wild when he was just a foal. He was injured during the roundup and has a hip injury. The people at the stable don’t know if he can be ridden, but he is very sweet, has good ground manners, and can be exercised in the arena and round pen. He has a little “hitch” in his gait but it does not seem to stop him from trotting or cantering at liberty.
His owner is going through personal issues and is threatening to sell him to a local killer buyer or just send him to the auction- which would essentially be the same fate. The people at the stable have been trying to contact local rescues up there but have not been successful.
HE ONLY HAS UNTIL THE END OF MAY- PLEASE call if you are able to take him!!!
If anyone is near the Bakersfield area who can save this guy, please Toni. She is one of the people at the stables who has been trying to help find this guy a home: (661) 304-2659.
