Rescue Group: All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.
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.
