Breed Quarter Horse

Age 21

Sex Gelding

Color White/Brown

Height 16hh

We had been looking for an older, well-mannered horse for our daughter, Tera.

One day this horse popped up on a Facebook page for free. The ad stated that he was abandoned by his owners and would be headed to slaughter Monday morning if not rehomed. This was Saturday. After many attempts, we got a hold of the people that had him and made arrangements to come meet Joker. To be honest, I was expecting a rough-around-the-edges, ornery horse. To my surprise, I met a very kind gentlemen with a very good temperament. I was informed that he was passed on by five other people due to a clicking hock and terrible-looking hooves.

I agreed to take him and brought him home. It has been five months now and he is part of the family. My daughter and Joker have quite the bond, like two peas in a pod. After getting his hooves handled and some weight back on, Joke has enough energy to keep up with his eight-year-old girl. Once warmed up, the clicking goes away. I’m proud to say this is his forever home. (But I do have to say he is a messy eater! Haha!)

 

The right horse is a horse that is a little girl’s best friend.

Bringing Gilly home is the best decision I have ever made. I love learning to ride. My two young daughters love being with horses and spend hours at the barn helping me work and taking lessons. My husband and I are sharing a new passion.

Some days we just stand together, some days I groom him, others we go for walks or head to the arena and play. I tell him he is my favorite and how much I love him. He nudges me gently with his nose or will rest his head on mine.
