Hello! My name is Hermes
I am purebred.
DOB - Approx. January 1994
Height - 15.2 hands
Registration -Not available
Color/Markings - Bay with four white socks, blaze and snip
Arrived: 5/20/2009, returned November 2010
Bio: Hermes was part of a large neglect case. He was removed in a joint effort between BEHS and three other agencies. He was placed with BEHS by the courts.
History: : Prior to coming to BEHS, nothing is known of Hermes' history. He was adopted shortly after arriving, but was returned through no fault of his own.
Health/Lameness: Hermes has a heart murmur that does not appear to bother him at all. As of January 2011, he is a little thin but is gaining weight well.
Abilities: Hermes is a big, beautiful Arabian gelding. He is easy to catch in the field, leads well, stands tied and is good for the farrier/hoof trimmer. He stands well to be saddled, but he is not good about being bridled (he puts his head into the air - his foster home is working on this and believes it is fixable). He longes well at the walk and trot. His previous adopter said he was trail riding Hermes. He's been ridden once in his current foster home and appears to be green under saddle but very willing to please. He's a gorgeous mover and doesn't act his age at all. He's got potential as a show, trail or pleasure riding horse.
Other: Hermes' foster 'mom' said his only draw back is his trailering skills. When his adopter sent him back to the rescue, he gave him a tranquilizer to trailer. His foster home has since tried to trailer him once and he was not good. He loads well, but he starts kicking once tied in the trailer. His foster 'mom' feels he would do best riding lose in a stock trailer. Other than this, she says he's an awesome horse.

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
