Precious spirit, huge heart, great start
If you’re looking to adopt a gelding with a gentle spirit, earnest heart and tons of potential, Ralphie is your man!
Swingin’ D Horse Rescue saved Ralphie from slaughter around Christmas of 2017. Several people told us he couldn’t be saved, that we should humanely euthanize him. He was too abused, too sick, too starved, too terrified to ever recover and be useful.
After months of loving care, Ralphie grew to be an amazing horse with a limitless future. We just had to get him through the illness and infection he likely picked up in the slaughter pipeline.
Young, broke to ride, gentle, strong work ethic and very smart, Ralphie is available for adoption to an experienced horse person. Our dream for Ralphie is to take lessons with a rider who plans to work with and keep him forever.
