At 17 old, Stoney was rescued from the Bastrop, Louisiana Auction Barn. There, if animals are not rescued, they are shipped out of the country where they are slowly tortured until they finally die. Then their bodies are processed and consumed by humans!
What a pathetic way to make a living!
Stoney came to us very thin. But luckily, other than that, he was in decent shape. He was very head shy, but that has got much better. He is still weary of humans, but obviously the more we work with him the better he gets. Stoney is quiet, gentle sole, that is very easy going and laid back. He also does beautifully in the herd and causes no trouble at all.
Besides for a little arthritis he is in good health. For the arthritis we give him Previcox a few times a week and he does fine with that.
Stoney is great under saddle! He is very calm, respectful and responsive. I wouldn't say "bombproof" because at times he can get a little spooked, but nothing bad at all. He has been ridden on trails and has done great even stopping at the mounting block without even being asked or cued in any way.
Stoney loads and trailers wonderfully. He is great for the farrier. Even though he is so terrified of the veterinarian (**Our veterinarians are OUSTANDING, Stoney has just had a rough past obviously!) that he actually trembles, he is well-behaved and causes no trouble.
For Stoney, we want him to have 24/7 turnout. He has been used and abused so we want him to have a laid back, leisurely life he so very much deserves. We want him free to graze throughout the day, and to listens to the sounds of Mother Nature. We want him to have people that love and adore him, the same way we do. We want him to have people that will continue teaching him that not all humans suck, and that he is safe and loved, and will never, ever be hurt, neglected, or dumped again.
* Our beloved Stoney will go to his new home with his bottle of Previcox that should last a long time. Oh, and of course he will go home with his winter coat!
