Slick is a 14 y/o Thoroughbred gelding who came into our program when his elderly owner was hospitalized and wasn't able to properly care for him and another horse. He was severely underweight, had very poor hoof condition and parasites. He and the other horse had not left the property in many years and had minimal handling after their racing careers were over.
Slick is looking for a new start, and he is ready and eager for a new job. He is sound and after being medically cleared he began ground work and round pen training. Slick needs an owner who has experience with OTTB's or starting horses, and he could have many years of active riding ahead with the right partner. He has separation anxiety has been making progress since intake, but he is happiest when eating or in turnout with others instead of being stalled for long periods of time. Slick is good for the vet and farrier.

Horse showings are by appointment only, and he is currently off site in Chardon OH.
