Sil is one big handsome gelding looking for someone who needs a best friend and companion. He's a purebred Black Friesian with a sweet personality. He is sound but does have some medical issues involving autoimmune disease. This is manageable with some basic care and treatments. He is great with other horses, especially the ladies and loves to be groomed. He's approx. 15.2 hands and has beautiful feathering. He has not been ridden in several years but with some refresher courses could do trails or light pleasure riding.

To see Sil by APPOINTMENT ONLY, submit an online horse adoption application at An adoption counselor will contact you--typically within three business days--to discuss with you the type of horse you are looking for and to see whether we have a good match for you. Our counselor will discuss the next steps afterward.

Our dogs and horses are NOT at the HSFC shelter at 4057 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA--only our cats, birds, rabbits, and small mammals can be visited there. Our dogs and horses are housed at our private farm in Centreville.
