Meet Topaz

Stock Horse Gelding 14.2hh, 34yrs

Topaz is a sweet old boy in need of a retirement home.

His owner is very upset at having to part with him, but it's become necessary due to a change in circumstances beyond her control. He was a dressage horse is his younger days, and has had the best of care throughout his life.

He needs to be hard fed twice a day, rugged on cold, windy days (he comes with his rugs), and have access to a shelter or stable. Being kept at home is ideal.

His vision is blurry due to cataracts and he has arthritis in his back legs, so he needs a paddock with safe, visible fencing and another calm horse for companionship.

If you can provide a permanent home for Topaz where he can live out the rest of his days in safety and comfort, please contact us.

Topaz was adopted on 01 April 2016 after 10 months in foster care
