19 yr OTTB Gray Gelding
At 16.2 hh, this 19 year old gray TB gelding makes Pepe and Pic look like his toys! His owners have also committed to his support "until he moves on to that great pasture in the sky". They wrote:
"Remy has been a true champion both in and out of the showing arena. He has given our daughter multiple blue ribbons in her jumping classes, and has shown her a true sense of responsibility and friendship. .... Remy has been an overall champion, reserve champion, and has more than 25 ribbons over the past 2 seasons in 6 competition Green Rider division in the GSDHJA shows. He has a past history as a racing horse with 3 wins on official record. He also comes with his original certified papers. (Which show that his name at birth was Pro Monarch) Remy has really bad arthritis and he has had pin firing in his legs, therefore, they aren’t as strong. .... He gets along with all horses and loves to be around everyone. ... Overall he is a really great, friendly horse that gets along with everyone.
Well, so far, Remy doesn’t show much in the way of arthritic stiffness .... he fell immediately and embarrassingly in love with Anaba .... and like Pepe, spends a lot of time looking over to the main paddock area, calling to the main herd. He will get his hind shoes removed tomorrow, and then we’ll integrate him into the main herd as well.
Brief update - Remy was moved into the stall of my lost Swing's Lew and fell madly in love with Star and Daisy, who continue to be "his" mares. Anaba, even after she moved over to their stall line, is of no interest to this guy! Wow, fickle? He is completely henpecked by his girls and appears to be very happy about it! Update in 2011: He's added lovely Medina to his harem.... what a guy!
Here you can see that Anaba is really not part of the group anymore.... poor 'naba! Star, Remy and Daisy ...a new herd-let!
Remy is part-sponsored by his former owners, and I thank them! But Remy needs a LOT of feed, the price of which has gone up since Remy first arrived, and also shoes. Would you consider helping us meet his needs?
