Location: SPCA of Texas, Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center, McKinney, TX
Training level: Broke to ride
Current assessment and personality: Hershey is a sweet guy who came to us broke to ride. After undergoing a trachestomy, he is getting back into regular riding, and is doing well. He has a very smooth trot and is mellow and easy-going with the other horses in the pasture. This little horse can go in any direction with an intermediate child or adult rider.
Potential: No limitations
Adopter experience needed: Intermediate
Health/lameness: Hershey had a tracheostomy while in our care, placing a permanent opening in his neck. This allows him to breathe through his windpipe. The trachestomy site has healed well, and will require occasional cleaning and observation.
