FOSTERED FOR THE LOCAL HUMANE

SOCIETY

     Macintosh is a true joy!  How could someone could watch this sweet, beautiful boy waste away before before their eyes?  The physical and emotional pain he must have felt as he slowly starved is unspeakable.  However, those days are behind him and soon he will be ready for his forever home.  

      Anyone can handle Mac.  He leads, loads, clips, bathes, ties, and stands quietly for the farrier.  ENDRS biggest concern with Mac is that he does have some fear issues.  He will thrive best in a home that has a calm and quiet manner because large and aggressive movements scare him.

      Mac's riding skills were evaluated on 08/02/08.  It was a very hot day so he was only ridden for about 5 minutes.  However, during that time he willingly accepted a rider, gave to indirect and direct rein pressure, stopped, backed, and transitioned easily from a walk, trot and canter.  He was ridden in a non-mechanical, biteless bridle and a bareback pad.  At this point, ENDRS recommends an advanced beginner as his new riding partner because he is a bit spunky in his gaits.

       Mac's statistics:  Quarter cross bay gelding, estimated age 30+, arthritic, heart murmur, 14.3 hands high, leads, loads, clips, bathes, ties, stands quietly for the farrier, ready for very light riding by an advanced beginner, current on dental care, worming, vaccinations, & coggins.  Mac's daily feed intake includes 8 pounds of soaked alfalfa cubes, 14 pounds of Purina Equine Senior, 3 cups of soybean oil, probiotics and Strongid C dosed for his weight.
