Experienced, Gentle, Calm and Quiet
Chance is one of those unfortunate horses that gave his all to his humans, then got injured and dumped on a kill lot. Somewhere along the way, he was popped in the right hock, causing damage that was not properly treated. The result is a wad of scar tissue that causes his suspensory ligament to pop when he walks. According to the vet, the old injury does not cause him pain. He has learned to adapt. When his quarantine is complete and after he has put on a sufficient amount of weight, we will evaluate him to determine his level of experience.
In addition to Chance’s hock injury, he appears to have a suspensory ligament disorder that will likely get worse over time. Again, the vet says Chance is not in pain, but he should be closely monitored.
