Description: 
See Big Guy (aka) Gabe's Homepage Gabe is a 15.3 hand standardbred senior gelding. He is very stocky like the foundation standardbred horses. He is a real lover. He is safe for knowledgeable beginners. He is a trotter and does not canter. He is safe and steady on trails and is very healthy. He loads, ties and stands for the farrier. He has some arthritis and has been started on joint supplements. He was found in a kill pen by one of our volunteers. Some people there knew him and his story. He was owned his whole life by one man. His owner died and his family sent him to auction. He was purchased by a kill buyer in PA. We brought him to the rescue and he was adopted out to a small therapeutic riding organization. He was a favorite horse but the organization had to close due to decreased funding and Gabe was returned to the rescue with many tears by his owner. He is a special horse that is looking for a special home. Adoption fee $1500
