My husband and I have two horses already (a Tennessee Walker and a Quarterhorse) and were recently given the opportunity to give a home to a third one, whose owner has cancer and needs to give his horses to a good home.
We have had our horses for about 6 months or so and they are doing well but we do not know much about the different breeds of horses and things of that nature.
I have a couple of pictures of the horse that they are trying to find a home for and would like to post them here. Like I said, we don't know much about horses in general, but we did notice that his tail is a bit awkward looking.
I don't know if there is actually something wrong with this horse's tail or not, or whether the hair of his tail is just too thin, but you can clearly see the stub of the actual vertebrae of his tail. When he waves his tail, you can see more of a stub than actual hair moving...if that makes any sense! Lol
Other than that, he looks to be in good shape, he is a good size and friendly with people and is broken. Our biggest worry is his tail as we don't know what exactly would be the cause for something like this and we've certainly never seen anything like that with our horses now.
Aside from that, if anyone could take a look at the horse and give an idea of what his condition looks like overall (I am sure we'll have a vet come out to give him a proper check up if we decide to adopt) and perhaps a guess on what type of horse he is? All that we know at this point is that he is a gelding.
Thank you in advance!
Second pic...tried to zoom in on the tail a bit but this was taken with a camera phone so I'm not sure how it will come out.
