Meet Rocky

Hello my name is Rocky! I am a 16 yr old gelding standing approximately 14.2 hands tall. I am suitable for a trainer.

No one ever took the time to actually get to know me. I’ve spent my time loving life in the pasture with owners that would just come hang out and feed me and my buddies treats.
It’s been a good life but now I’ve come to join the people and horses here at the humane society because my owners couldn’t keep me. I’m really not sure what to do with myself anymore but I always am hopeful that humans bring goodies my way. I’m not a small horse even though I think I am sometimes and forget I shouldn’t walk on top of the humans. I’m new to being led and haltered but it isn’t scary to me.

I am writing this after his first initial evaluation and very minimal handling to and from his pen.
Rocky came to us recently because his owners are getting older and wanted to make sure he’s in good hands. He is a handsome horse. We really don’t know what breed he is but there’s a high possibility he was born out of branded mustangs. Unfortunately he has never had any real training and was more of a pet. I wouldn’t call him scared but he is more pushy around people probably because he hasn’t had much consistent handling. He lunged well and seemed to be receptive to the exercise and started to listen well. Currently we will just be working on the basics of leading, tying and haltering and will continue to build from there. Did I mention this guy looks beautiful in the pasture? He’s a fancy mover and just good to the eyes. He is an easy keeper and currently on grass hay and pasture.

It would be ideal to find him a home with a more experienced horseman or someone that wants to send him to a trainer that is willing to work with him and train him.

If you are interested in adopting me into your family please email adoptions@horsehumane.org for an adoption application.
