Josie does not look like your everyday “OTTB next door!” She is balanced with broad, muscular shoulders and an equally substantial hip on top of nice solid feet. Josie is seeking a friend, rider, and the absolute right home to admire her intelligence and willingness. 

The good:
  • Never does anything wrong under saddle, or in hand, ever: today, tomorrow or next Christmas she is the same level-headed girl.
  • She’s super happy to take on any challenge and thrives on attention
  • Stands like a pro for the vet, farrier, dogs underfoot or children to groom
  • Perfect with geldings or mares, donkeys, chickens or the pig
  • She will go anywhere you point her with a  buddy on the trail but is not herd bound or barn sour.
  • Never spooks
  • Barefoot and happy/ sound!
  • Easier keeper
  • She happily goes out overnight but enjoys coming inside, too! 
  • Trailers like a dream and is pretty tidy in her stall
  • No vices except an addiction to sugar cubes, carrots or apples. 
The bad:
  • Josie has early stages hock arthritis. X-rays from last fall are available for approved adopters. She has had her hocks injected but her previous adopter found it easier to maintain on daily supplement of Equinety ($1/day)
  • She’s a Thoroughbred, so she does not appreciate bugs (but, then, who does??). Fly sheets suit her just fine and she will happily let you fly spray her as needed. 
Josie’s perfect match would be someone who just wants to dote on her (she adores being groomed!), or take her for leisurely trail rides/ light arena work, or even as a broodmare or surrogate (although has not been bred). She has been ridden bareback and saddled. Advanced beginner riders would do fine with her– she’s even had kid riders! Josie is current on vaccinations and dentals.
