Adoptable Horse: Charlie, 17-year-old 16hh bay thoroughbred gelding
Organization: MSPCA at Nevins Farm, Methuen, Massachusetts

Get to Know Charlie

Charlie is the resident sweetheart—just look at that kind face! He is a handsome dark bay off-track thoroughbred who is super cute and always ready to greet you with an exuberant whinny. He has been living the retired life since his track days, so we are seeking a companion-only home for him, but he would make a great addition to any herd. We do not currently have him turned out with any friends but he has been friendly and calm with other horses over the fence. He loves to play in turn out but is happy to come in to his stall at night. He’s a flexible guy! He is great for the vet and farrier—as patient as can be. He is truly a gem!
