Chopper's Story...
Chopper was surrendered with Dolly because their owners had to move and could not take them along. In June of 2010, Chopper was rescued by his former owners, so they knew little of his background. After have a dental appointment with the vet, they learned that he is missing his back molars, which prevents him from eating hay. He does well with green forage and mash twice a day. He will require a home that can provide him with hay pellets and senior feed.

According to his previous owners, even in his mid-twenties he is still sound to ride. However he needs an experienced rider because he is fast under saddle and he cannot be ridden with a bit. He is not known to buck or rear.

He is easy to catch and and lead, but has some head shyness. He interacts well with mares, geldings, and small animals. He stands well for vet, farrier and grooming. He loads well, and rides well in a trailer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chopper, a Lyles Quarterhorse was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Quarterhorse for sale in Lyles, or seeking a Quarterhorse from a breeder in Lyles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lyles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lyles breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Quarterhorse breeders who help with Quarterhorse rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lyles paves the way for another one to be saved.
