TurnLane - 2014-10-15 9:20 AM Thanks STPG! I seem to be detailed in my sale ads, not so much in my depression of finding this horse a home. Yes, he is located near Tulsa Okla area.



I have had some interest but they want to know his breeding which is totally irrelevant as he is not going somewhere where someone thinks they will ride him because he is by DTF, I am smarter than that. He will not go with his papers.



Which is why we are seriously leaning towards putting him down vs the liability of injuring a person or him:
If Hero wasn't an @ss, I would tell you to just bring him down and turn him out... I am sure he would adjust, but in the mean time.....?  If it comes to it, there is always this option.  

Yes, Hero would KILL him. Poor guy, as it is now, he stands and grunts as they bite or kick him. He tries to run away but if they cut in front of him he cant switch directions to go the other way in time to avoid conflict. But he tries hard. Thanks

Its going to be a tough choice...but for the horses sake unless you know the person well...I think the safest choice would be to let him cross the rainbow bridge.

Longneck - 2014-10-15 9:40 AM Poor guy!  I wish I had the space, but I just don't :(



Could you maybe market him as like maybe a halter/showmanship project horse for a family just wanting to do groundwork type of things or just wanting to teach kids responsibilty and horse ownership?  Or is that too much to ask of him?  (as in trotting on a lead)  Asssuming that you make it very clear that he can't ever be rode, but would that expand your marketing base? 
That is a brilliant idea. Not so much on the trot for show purposes- that is where he shows his weakness behind although not terrible and he no longer falls down. Thank you for the thought. 

Is he totally unrideable? What is his temperament? Could he be used as a therapy (lead-line) horse for the handicapped - such as Bit by Bit in Oologah? Just an idea.

He is a young horse and I just dont know that it would be safe or not, since he hadnt had much life experience outside of the arena. We actually hauled him to his very first away from home roping then two days later it hit him HARD. We thought it was lameness so we gave him bute and time off. When he didnt improve we went to the vet. I guess we were too late.

Thank you for understanding. I have sure taken some flack for even saying we would put him down. That is why I have been hesitant to even try posting  here or on FB even though I did.

If someone could get him to Georgia I could take him or at least get him to a forever home. I have two brood mares and a 5 year old that would take good care of him in the pasture.

Ok, since I dont know you personally- who all can give me a personal reference? I bet we could make something work although times of stress such as new home or hauling- can cause flare ups. . I bet we could work something out if nothing close comes together?

Let me talk to my landlord.  She does not ride anymore and has her son's 27 year old retired calf horse that may need a companion when he heads back to Texas.  If sending him to Georgia doesn't work we might be able to send him to Wyoming. 

She takes the upmost care of all her horses evern if they are retired.

Sure, I completely understand... I can give you vet references as well as a few women that I have barrel raced with. One being a NFR qualifier back in the early 00's and another lady that is very involved in rodeo. I honestly don't have a lot of references, I haven't competed since having kids, which has been several years. I mostly piddle here and there with a few mares and babies a year.

Well we will see how it works out with GA or TX or where ever:)  As far as references, I meant nore so board buddies that might have known you a long time or something of the sort. Plus a vet reference would be helpful.
