Baxter was rescued from an animal cruelty case in Skagit County in December of 2009 where he was starved to a Body Condition Score of 1. He has been fully rehabilitated and is now going under saddle. He is green broke but seems sensible under saddle, appropriate for an intermediate rider. He is 10 years old, 15 hands, black and white pinto and we believe he is a QH/Paint crossed with perhaps a Friesian or a Saddlebred. He has very fancy movement with lots of knee action and a full, thick tail. He was only gelded last summer and is still somewhat studdy towards other horses still so needs to be kept pastured separately from other horses until his hormones settle a bit more. Otherwise he is easy to handle and becoming more interested in people as he learns to trust us. You can read Baxter’s entire history at SAFE by clicking here.
