Ojo

Ojo is a grade quarter horse type 3-year-old bay gelding that came to us from the Ojo Caliente area. The little guy was found when a ranch owner was riding in a remote area of their ranch. This emaciated 6-month-old colt popped up and followed her 3 miles back to the barn. They could only assume he had been dropped off there by someone so they contacted NMLB and the colt was posted for ownership. No one claimed the little guy, so even though the ranch owners knew he had a slim chance of surviving, they decided to pay the bid amount and give him a chance. He has been castrated, socialized, halter trained and taught to trailer load; not to mention how healthy he looks. The ranch owners contacted THS to see if we could possibly accept this gelding as a surrender to continue Ojo’s training and start him under saddle to find him a good adopter. They are at an age that they did not feel comfortable starting a young horse. Ojo is in quarantine. Not available.
