Anonymous Donor or Noni as we call him, is 16.2 hands and 6 years old. He has no vices and is really great to work with in and out of the barn. He is turned out with two other horses and gets along with everyone. I’ve been on him once and just putted him around the farm, he was perfect.
Anonymous Donor sold for $50,000 as a baby at the sales and went on to be a hard knocking racehorse who ran 33 times with 4 wins, 3 seconds and 5 thirds. Being the generous horse that always did his best, he got passed around quite a bit. He has now retired from racing at the age of 6 and was lucky enough to get in at Leighton Farm.
I really like this horse. He is smart, a gorgeous mover and quite good looking. He does need some rest time because his ankles are sore. They basically squeezed as much as they could out of this wonderful boy. He is not lame, but one can see he needs some time. He had a deplorable shoeing job too, but my blacksmith addressed the pinching nails the second day he was here. Noni has seen the dentist and is up to date on his vaccinations and has a current coggins. My original plan was to rest him, put some retraining on him and then offer him on the goodhorse.org website to a great home.
Unfortunately, I came off a horse last week – not this boy – breaking 5 ribs and my scapula. In addition to being an extremely painful injury, I am not able to ride – or do any barn work for that matter. I really thought by now (5 days later) I would be toughing it out, but as it stands, I can’t even be on my feet more than a few hours, so riding and retraining is out for now. Since I am relying on the incredible kindness of TPR’s reliable volunteers, I need to downsize as much as possible. Therefore, I am putting Noni on the site for adoption. He will make a wonderful trail/pleasure/lower level dressage mount. He’s really a beautiful mover and a kind soul.
