Valor and his five herdmates were surrendered to SAFE by their owner, who was no longer physically or financially able to properly care for them. The horses were in decent weight but had not had farrier or dental care in some time. Valor came to SAFE as a stallion, but has been successfully gelded and is recovering well. He has a hernia, which will need to be surgically corrected after he is fully healed from his gelding. We also suspect that he has upward fixation of the patella, so he will likely undergo a minimally invasive procedure to correct that as well. Despite these medical needs, Valor is a fine young horse who is handsome, gentle, and bright. He is already getting lots of handling on the ground with SAFE volunteer rider Jolene, who can’t stop raving about what a good boy he is. Valor will benefit immensely from SAFE’s training program, and should have a very bright future ahead of him.

Valor will likely be offered for adoption as a riding horse. His adoption fee will be determined once he begins training and will be in the range of $1,500 – $2,500.
