In shelter Horse

Pittsboro, NC, 27312
Pet name:
Tye is an 8 year old OTTB.  Per his papers his last race was 2018.  

He was surrendered because he cant be ridden.  His owners did extensive vetting and radiographs yet couldnt find an answer to why he is lame while being ridden.

I rode him once when he first came (with 4 shoes) and while he was sound at the walk, he was immediately lame at the trot.  He is pasture sound.  

We are having him evaluated by our vet and farrier very soon.  The farrier is going to remove his shoes to see what he is like completely barefoot.  Then we will try to ride again and see if he can be a barefoot trail horse instead of a competition horse

This horse has a such an amazing heart.  He is so kind.  So friendly.  Just absolutely wonderful.  He loves people and will come running out of the pasture to his people.  

He can be dominant in the herd and boss around new horses until they learn their position in the herd.

Tye is a real special horse.  He will have an adoption fee and contract to ensure he gets the best home.
