Montana has a long path ahead of him before he will be available for adoption. We don’t know if he has been haltered before, but given his current reluctance at being approached, we suspect he either hasn’t been haltered or had a less than optimal introduction to haltering. Right now, we’re estimating his age at 5 years but until he is gentled enough for a dental examination, we won’t be able to have his teeth examined by our vet for a better age determination. Volunteers have noticed that he keeps a respectful distance and moves away quietly as people move around cleaning or doing work in his paddock.
It’s likely to take 6 months to a year until Montana will be available for adoption.
