Fontana PT :: Horse of the Month
Fontana PT is a registered quarter paint born in 2001. She is 15hh.
She came to us when her owner could no longer keep weight on her.
Reportedly, she is broke to ride as a trail horse. We will wait until she is of proper weight to try her out.
She does not like dogs. Currently she kicks at them when they get near her.
She is very sweet. A vet check revealed she has ulcers in her mouth, esophagus and stomach. We are treating her for this.
Sadly, this is what her top-line looked like when she came to us.
Once Fontana went through our re-feeding program, she gained the necessary weight and wow, what a looker she is!
She gets along great with other horses, even other mares.
She is very sweet. She would be appropriate for a pasture pet or for light riding down the trails.
In this video you can see her easy moves picking up into a nice trot while headed out to the brome field.
