Rescue Group: River Edge Farm Horse Rescue
Pepsi was in rough shape when he came to the rescue. He was very skinny, and his previous owners were treating his rain rot by putting used motor oil on it. Since it was February, we couldn't just wash him up outside, so he got a trip to the vet where he was introduced to the heated wash rack. It took a few washes with medicated shampoo to get all of the oil out. He came back to the rescue with antibiotics to give him a boost on the path towards health. To handle his weight problem, we started him out with lots of hay and then gradually introduced him to grain. After a couple of months, he was doing much better and we were able to start some training.
He is really friendly and he does well with ground work. He has been saddled with no problems, but we have not tried riding him. He is very sweet and calm, and he will be a nice quiet horse once he is trained. He is looking for a home of his own, and he'd love to meet you.
