Heavy Roller

8 year old thoroughbred gelding bred in KY Malibu Moon (A. P. Indy) out of Yara by Put It Back Eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project's THOROUGHBRED MAKEOVER COMPETITION! 16 plus hands. He last ran in December and retired with a right distal radius fracture and significant arthritis. Roller is a hunk of a horse with a wonderful personality. Curious and smart, he stands quietly in his stall and doesn’t cause any trouble. He is currently on stall rest until the end of May. Beginning in early June, he will transition to round pen turnout for another 30 days. He will need to be reassessed at that point for progress. We think Roller would look fantastic under western tack! Due to the arthritis, he will be limited to trails or other flat work. He stood well for our vet and farrier.
