New addition to our family... Sonny's Lucky Pro

Last week I was looking at the AC4H broker page to see what horses were on the feedlot. I do this occasionally to cross post on my FB page.

Anyway...this one older horse caught my eye. I don't know what possessed me but next thing I knew, I had signed all the paperwork and pay pal'd the money for him.

Went to pick him up this past Monday and he has been home with me now ever since. He is sick, has upper resp and conjunctivitis but I am not surprised since he was on a feedlot. His feet were terrible and he needed his teeth done pretty bad. Had the dentist, farrier and vet out this week for him already.

He is 21 yrs old, reg AQHA, a sorrel roan gelding who was trained and showed in western pleasure.

Here is the youtube video from the rescue that posted him:

And here are a few pics of him:

He's lovely! Amazing what you can find in a feedlot, eh?

Aww. Very cute. He looks very good under saddle. The way he back ups, turns and even walks. He is cute. I <3 him.

He is very cute. I don't know if im seeing things because the video was short of each gate, but he looks off in his front left leg. He looked like he was limping. Just food for thought or something to keep an eye out for. Like I said, I may not have been seeing things correctly. But I like him alot, he looks very well trained.

He does look pretty off in the right front in the video but that could have been due to his horrible feet.

He is an amazing looking horse and he has got some very serious training on him. Very nice and he is lucky that you found him.

Yes, he is definitely off in the front right. He has a cracked heel and his feet were very long and starting to scoop up like a spoon.

We had him trimmed the day after he came home and he is still sore and limpy. It will take a few trimmings to get his feet back under control and get him sound again.
