(Chance is best buddies with Leo.)
Chance is a bay gelding. He is a branded BLM Mustang.
Chance and his buddy Leo (also up for adoption) came to our rescue from an elderly couple as an owner surrender. They were at the point where they were no longer able to ride or care for Leo and Chance and were thus surrendered to us. At that time, Leo and Chance were already out to pasture for several years. Prior to this, the couple, Leo and Chance were avid trail riders for at least 13 years.
We have put a saddle on Chance and rode him once. He has taken to bucking under saddle and will need a workup to see if the saddle is causing him issues or if it is something else. His teeth have been floated and he has no other issues that we or our vet can see. He may just need a refresher training or become a pasture pet.
He is friendly towards people and other horses in pasture. Chance is adorable with his dark bay color and a super thick mane. He reminds us of a spanish mustang type.
He is up to date on vaccines, deworming, and is in overall excellent health.
