Under Evaluation


Update June 7, 2020:

Miles is still wary, especially of new people. He still shows a great amount of curiosity and makes an effort to smell hands and let us touch him, but he is still quite anxious about it. Miles is getting more comfortable with us just being in his space, and is interested when his roommate, Mick, is being worked with in their pen.

Update January 6, 2020:

Miles is very interested in people but gets anxious when he gets too close. However his confidence grows with every session. He has been haltered and showed a little understanding of the halter. He still gets a little unsure with our presence, but we think Miles has had very little exposure to people.

Miles is a long-legged 2-year-old sorrel gelding that came to THS with Mick after being picked up by NMLB in the Santa Fe area. He had been hit by a car in the right hind leg and was unable to bear weight on that leg when picked up. He has improved a great deal and now only occasionally shows lameness at the trot. He is not touchable at this time but is very curious towards people and should come around quickly. Miles will be evaluated following quarantine to determine his eligibility for our 2020 Gimme Shelter Challenge.
