Meet Rusty * Adoption Pending
Rusty is and 18y/o ~15HH chestnut QH who is ready for adoption after recovering and gaining some weigh in foster care. He has been trained for riding and still has some get up and go so would do best with an intermediate rider. He hauls, ties, stands well for the farrier and the vet. He’s up to date on vaccines, teeth, and deworming. He’s been going well barefoot with regular trims, but would likely need shoes for more regular riding. He’s a joy to be around and has no vices.
He’s a really charming guy who still has a lot of good years in him.
Location: Langley, BC (foster)
Adoption fee: $750
