Star, stripe, and three white socks

Banjo (aka Joe!) was surrendered to SAFE by his owners on the recommendation of City of Snohomish animal control officers, who discovered the gelding had not received basic vet or farrier care for more than five years. Banjo’s hooves were terribly overgrown, but instead of having the “slipper feet” we usually see in these cases, his hoof walls were not curled under or split…they had just grown straight down until his soles were literally three inches off the ground. It was as if he was walking on cups! Banjo will never fully recover from the neglect he suffered at the hands of his former owners. He is on a small dose of Prednisolone to help keep his coronary band dystrophy under control. He is an easy keeper and weight should be monitored and be keep from too much rich grass. It is our fond wish that someone will open their hearts to this gentleman and give him a safe place to live out the rest of his life.
Banjo was named by Ann R, who won the “Name a SAFE Horse” package at Heart of the Horse! Thank you, Ann, for giving Banjo a new name to start his new life!
