Stuart Little is a gorgeous Appendix type Quarter Horse gelding who is around 19 years old. He was an eventer throughout his life. He now has significant arthritis and needs daily Previcox. He is sound if kept on light work, pasture turn out and medications. He is adoptable as a companion or could possible do flat walk-only lessons in an experienced environment. We are looking to adopt to safe homes. A history of good horsemanship, the ability to provide sufficient care with a good veterinarian and farrier, and peer references are important. The adoption process at Heart of Phoenix makes sure you get the right horse for yo. It is a no-fail process for finding the right match. Apply at www.horseandridermatch.com/adopt-a-horse. Could he be your #righthorse?
