Skeeter's Story

Skeeter is a very well trained horse and came to us as an Owner Surrender.  We are in the process of having this sweet boy evaluated by veterinarians - we were told by his former owner that he has navicular.  Skeeter has arthritis in his front legs and would need to go to a very low key home and would need to be the perfect home for us to allow Skeeter to be adopted - with the issues in his front legs.

Skeeter is a very curious horse and is adjusting well here at the Ranch.  He has made friends with our pony Cinnamon - they can be seen enjoying each other during pasture time.

  1. I was wondering when you say limited riding what do you mean by that?

      Hi Lily - Thank you for your interest in Skeeter. He is a handsome gelding! Skeeter has really bad arthritis and possibly Navicular - he is ride able on flat terrain, no mountain riding. If you would like to make an appointment to come and meet Skeeter, please give Valentina, our Assistant Director a call at (970) 901-0502. Thank you for your interest -
