Tucker came to Mylestone in early 2018, saved from going to slaughter. He is now about 18 years old (Jan. 2022), clearly very handsome, and very sweet.
He came to us through a woman who'd first met him at a riding stable affiliated with Central Park, NYC, where he was used for trail riding. When he came up lame with Navicular disease, a dealer took him, promising to take him to a therapeutic riding facility for light riding. Instead, he took him to auction, where Tucker ended up in the kill pen due to not being bought.
An incredibly kind and generous woman asked if Mylestone could take him in if she paid for him, plus his quarantine and trailering, all adding up to $2,000. Luckily, we were able to take Tucker in at that time. The woman couldn't keep him herself; she just wanted to save his life. And after quarantine, Tucker arrived to start his new, safe, and happy life with Mylestone.
Due to Tucker's lameness with Navicular disease, he needs special shoes, but otherwise, is a happy and healthy boy. He spends his days hanging out in the large front field with Sundance and Gus. Sundance is his best friend, and they are never very far from each other though Sundance likes to boss Tucker from time to time. Gus recently joined Sundance and Tucker in their field. They all seem to get along well together. They play often and pull on each other’s blankets, chase each other, and just have fun.
Tucker is very friendly and loves attention from all the volunteers. He truly enjoys life on the farm and we couldn't ask for a sweeter horse to join Mylestone.
We hope you will appreciate Tucker, too. He is in need of sponsors and hopes you will be his new, best sponsorship buddy.
