We picked up Ben today from Pierce County Animal Control. He’s a 12 year old Thoroughbred gelding, tall, chestnut, with a blaze and one hind sock. He was picked up by Animal Control after a pizza delivery driver found him running down the road — he was in pitifully thin condition with a BCS of 1.5. He’s been in AC custody since August and has made a decent recovery, but he still need to gain some weight, get cleaned up, and get healthy. He like a very nice boy…he was reluctant to load into the trailer, but like most Thoroughbreds, he consented to getting in once he understood we were serious about it.
