Adoption Overview $600

Buck "Leos Bonanza Buck"

Are you ready for your next best friend? Meet Buck! He wants nothing more than to spend quality time with his people and enjoy a long, happy retirement. He is a registered Paint that is as beautiful to look at as he is sweet to handle. While Buck's riding days are past him, he can still strut his stuff in the pasture and will gladly greet you at the gate. He prefers getting pampered by his people than hanging out with other horses, but he does go with the flow in a herd environment and is low in the pecking order. (He does better with geldings than mares.) His favorite thing to do is lick the salt off of anything and everything- including you! Don't be surprised if you get covered in Buckaroo kisses on a daily basis. His previous owner has told us he loves swimming in the creek- we have found he loves getting hosed off and will stand still without a halter for a good summer time shower and we've also caught him playing in our sprinkler. Buck is 14.3 hands tall. This horse is up-to-date on vaccinations (did we mention he stands great for the vet?!), dental and farrier care, Coggins, and deworming. If you are interested, please tell us about yourself by completing our Interest in Adoption Form on our website: https://www.hsnt.org/equine-and-livestock When you adopt, you are not just giving a second chance to an animal in need; you are becoming a part of HSNT's critical rescue work. Adoption fees help HSNT continue to assist more animals - and the people - that need a helping hand. Thank you for supporting the animals in our community!
