Facts about Toby

  • Breed: Appendix/Quarterhorse Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Male
Toby is a 15.1 hand, 9 year old Appendix QH cross gelding who came to our organization from the Bakersfield Animal Shelter, where he had been released from a court case for cruelty and neglect. Toby has overcome a great deal of fear and flight issues, and is now very bonded with the pro bono trainer who is working with him on natural horsemanship ground work. Toby is easy to catch, halter, lead, tie, move through gates, load in the trailer, walk through obstacles & in water, groom, and handle feet. He stands tied for the Vet & Farrier and is very sweet with tons of "try". Toby has regained all of his weight and is now shiny and beautiful. He is barefoot & serviceably sound, current on all vaccines, dewormer, hoof trims, sheath cleaning, & teeth float. Toby's best match is a person or family with a lot of natural horsemanship experience, quiet leadership qualities, and a nice home of their own with a friend for Toby to spend his days with in the barn & turn out. Toby tends to be a one-person or one-family horse, and we are looking for someone who wants to continue his education and give him a forever loving home. Toby is boarded with a pro bono trainer in Thousand Oaks, CA. He is available for adoption by contract through our rescue for a minimum adoption fee donation of $650 - more gratefully accepted, and will be used for the care of our senior horses in permanent sanctuary retirement placement with our rescue.
