Hershey Large Male Quarter Horse / Mix Located in McKinney
Name: Hershey
Gender: Gelding
Breed: Quarter Horse
Height: ~14.2hh
Arrival Date: September 2018
Adoption Fee: $800
Location: SPCA of Texas, Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center, McKinney, TX
Training level: Broke to ride
Current assessment and personality: Hershey is a reliable guy and our trainer Daisy uses him as a saddle horse because he is so handy! He is a mellow, sweet boy that can get along with most any rider of any age. He has very smooth gaits and is very tolerant. Would make someone an awesome weekend trail horse! Potential: Light Riding
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 procedure in no way limits his abilities. The trachestomy site has healed well, and only requires regular cleaning and observation. Hershey also has mild arthritis in his coffin bone.
