Pet name:
Chestnut, Sorrel
Kix was adopted in August, 2020, as a therapy horse. While he made an ideal horse for interactions with patients, he failed to thrive in a herd of geldings in his new home. He also developed some lameness in his right front which was diagnosed as laminitis. He was treated for the laminitis and came back to Safe Harbor as his adopters wanted the best for him and were worried at his apparent depression. 

Kix lived all his life with a mare companion, and he has been happy in a foster home with the same. So if you have a lonely mare who needs a buddy, Kix may be your man.  

He will need to be managed for the laminitis (low NSC feed and monitored if you have rich pasture) but is otherwise healthy. 

Kix is an AQHA registered gelding who had one owner his entire life. When his owner was diagnosed with a terminal illness, his family reached out and asked for help. Kix was trained as a young horse, but has been an 1100 pound pet for the last decade, giving young kids lead-around rides but not being ridden independently. He is respectful on the ground, ties, leads, stands for the farrier and etc.

As with all Safe Harbor horses, Kix is up to date on vaccinations, Coggins, has had a dental check, dewormed, and farrier.
