Moss's Story...
Moss is a beautiful and well built 2001 Chestnut QH Gelding that stands around 15.2 hands. He is a very sweet and gentle boy who loves attention. Moss was relinquished after several years of no riding, but from limited evaluations under saddle, we believe he has had reining and/or cow horse training in his past. He is turning out to be a solid western riding horse, and we are very excited to see how he progresses. However, he foundered in the past, and we have not had the chance to evaluate the amount of work he can withstand. All four hooves were xrayed, and showed very slight rotation of his front coffin bones, but vet feels with strategic trimming and hoof care, angles can be corrected. He is a little tender-footed on hard ground, but we have used Cavallo Boots on him and he does very well. We are uncertain whether he can perform at an intense level. He is on the lazy side, but responds well to the riders' cues. He has not been evaluated on trail yet. He has great ground manners and is well behaved for the vet, farrier, dentist and ties, ground ties, bathes, trailers, etc. Any level rider would be well suited on him. Moss requires a special diet of Grass Hay only and limited supplements, and he need to be housed in an area with no pasture grass.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in El Dorado Hills 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 El Dorado Hills 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 El Dorado Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
