Horse Description: Nate is a sweet boy who loves attention and has a goober personality. Completely in-your-pocket! He also LOVES babies and would be an excellent babysitter!
Due to arthritis and an auto-immune skin condition, Nate requires daily administrations of Predisolone and Previcox. He also requires corrective shoeing to improve his angles and breakover and keep him comfortable. Nate enjoys being outside, but can sometimes play too hard and needs a break. So he does best managed 50/50 turnout/stall, with more time in the stall on sore days.
Obviously, this boy needs a lot of care, time, and energy invested into him to keep him happy and healthy. However, it is our hope that a special someone will come along with the means to give him the care he requires and a home he so greatly deserves.
