Facts about Bosco (Bosco RD888)

  • Breed: Standardbred
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10549294

Bosco is a registered off track Standardbred gelding.  His date of birth is exact at 01/08/1996.  Bosco came to rescue with an untreated eye abcess.  His veterinarian said he had likely been blind in that eye for years--even a decade.  We had the eye removed to eliminate pain from his life, and he has felt wonderful since then.  He has no spookiness issues, or other ways where being one-eyed seems to bother him.  He is all around wonderful.

​Bosco is broke to ride and drive.  He has been on a diet of Triple Crown Complete and grass hay and he gained weight quickly and easily in his foster home.  He is extremely sweet and loving.  He is a big guy, and will be great for a beginner or intermediate horse owner who is not intimidated by the large standie size.  Apply to adopt at

His adoption fee is set at our After The Track minimum of $500.  This boy is a true gem, and the amount of love he can bring to your life is priceless.

About Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a dedicated team or horsemen (and horsewomen) who are seeking to fill the void for those horses that have no alternatives. Our Mission is as follows:

1) To be first responders and a resource to horses and livestock in cases of abuse and neglect. To provide those animals a safe harbor sanctuary where they will be treated with diginity and love as they prepare for new lifelong home.

2) To serve at risk and medically fragile children, as well as recovering veterans through structured equine experience opportunities.

3) To become a resource to low income families, unable to continue to care for their equine and livestock animals; providing food assistance when possible, or offering rescue rehoming services when possible.
