Saved from slaughter in December 2017, Romeo and Everest arrived at the ‘D in the dark of night. Their coloring was so light, they glowed in the dark, like ghosts. From that day on, we referred to them as either The Ghosts, or Frick and Frack.
Romeo and Everest have been deeply bonded since the day they arrived (we were told they came from the same ranch). They move in tandem, almost as though they worked as a team, but we have no way of knowing for sure.
Romeo (the palomino), late teens, is the brains of the operation. Everest (the grey), early teens, is the brawn and personality.
This is one of many videos that showcases their hilarious personalities. They discover what fun it is to play in the sprinkler on a sweltering hot Oklahoma summer day. Everest will go to great lengths to get his naughty bits sprayed! We love our Ghosts, so they’ll only go to the perfect human.
According to our vet, Everest has foundered in the past – likely as a result of a serious laceration to his front left foot. As a result, we are currently treating him for coffin bone rotation and thin soles. We expect his foot to fully correct itself; but in the meantime, we recommend front shoes for more rigorous riding. Everest is sound, but adopters should be aware of potential issues if he is pushed beyond casual use. Romeo has no health or hoof issues.
