Trooper arrived this very wet and rainy day – May 15, 2015. He is a 7 year old, 17 hand chestnut Saddlebred gelding with a flaxen mane and tail. Trooper is going to need a lot of TLC, groceries, bodywork and support.
Over the next few weeks while he settles in with lots of nutritional support we will put him on a deworming regimen, have his teeth checked by and equine dentist and do some massage to release the tension in his neck, back and top line. He is also going to need some hip and pelvic adjustments by an osteopath once his muscles are strong enough to hold an adjustment.
We will keep you posted on rehab. In the meantime, if you could find it in your heart to donate just a few dollars to help us get Trooper the care he needs it would help him out immensely. Just hit the button on the top right corner of your screen or send a check to The Joyful Horse Project 4316 Lakeway Blvd., Austin, TX 78734 – make a note “Trooper’s Fund” on the memo line. All donations are tax-deductible.
Trooper is a really sweet horse and he wants to get better. Thanks in advance for your help.
