bodhi - adopted!
Bodhi was saved from a southern California livestock auction in August 2017. Bodhi is estimated to be about 12 years old, (based on his teeth), and also a gelding. Bodhi will be moving to quarantine in Santa Clarita, Ca and then the loving and TLC will begin. When healthy, Bodhi will make the move to the next step in his journey to a better life, and will join his wonderful foster mom Janey in Watsonville, Ca. With more loving, great care and training where needed, Bodhi will be ready for a great and loving home - just what every horse and pony deserves!
Bodhi Update on August 23rd, 2017:
I was able to visit with Bodhi today after his first week in quarantine. The immediate concern today was that his eyes look very irritated with a lot of discharge. So, ... off to the vet I go and returned with Triple antibiotic ointment to help clear his eyes up. With fly mask in place, and two treatments a day, I hoping that when I see him next week his eyes will be looking a lot better. Bodhi is eating and drinking well, but still has a long was to go. Bodhi is only just now starting out on his way back to being a healthy little pony so we still have a way to go.
Bodhi is a very sweet and curious pony - he will approach but initially is not too sure about being touched. He is easy to halter and is willing and ready to interact with humans. He has obviously been handled in the past and we know that he halters and leads well, stepped into and out of the trailer without any problems, and was very cooperative with his eye ointment! We'll learn more as we go along.
Adoption Fee: All Blue Horse Rescue adoption fees are always used to bring a horse or pony to safety. We like to think of it as not only providing a great home for one horse, but also helping to bring a second horse to safety, and then to a great home as well.
