Adoptable Horse: Toro Strike, a 6-year-old 15.3hh Thoroughbred gelding
Organization: Kentucky Equine Adoption Center, Lexington, Ky.

Get to Know Toro Strike

Toro was a graded stakes winner on the track and is very personable. He is a “been there, done that” kind of guy. Pampering is his favorite luxury and he soaks up all the attention. Due to a sesamoid issue, he is available for light riding only—nothing more than a walk. Toro would be a fabulous farm trail horse and is unfazed by almost everything. He requires very little upkeep and will soon be barefoot and maintaining a healthy weight to no longer require grain at feeding time. This horse is waiting for an owner to treat him as the winner he has always been.
