Bio: Hickory was seized from a neglectful owner along with several other horses.
History: : Nothing is known of Hickory's history.
Health/Lameness: Hickory is very healthy and shows no signs of having any lameness problems.
Abilities: Hickory is one of those very special boys that will need some special handling. He is frightened of human interaction although he does not seem to be a “spooky” horse by nature. Since nothing is known of Hickory’s past, there is no way to tell if there has been any abuse.
Hickory was sent to a trainer for a couple of weeks for assessment and the trainer was able to touch him and get a halter on him although at this time, he will not allow any further handling of his head. He can be caught with food and the foster home is working on touching his head enough to put a halter on and off.
Other: Hickory would be a great choice for an experienced handler that is looking for a rewarding project. He is one of the most intelligent horses that his foster home has ever had and he truly seems to WANT to like people, he is still just very frightened. He also has very large “puppy-dog” eyes that truly seem to want to please.
Location: Caldwell, TX
Adoption Fee: $100

In order to adopt, submit:
After BEHS receives a complete application, we will contact you to schedule a pre-adoption inspection. During the inspection, a BEHS volunteer will visit your property or the barn where you will be keeping your adopted equine. She can answer your questions about the adoption process and the organization, and will be taking a few photos and filling out some paperwork so we can ensure the home is safe – the care and comfort of our equines is our first priority
