Sarge is a beautiful draft cross gelding who started his life on an Amish farm. He learned to drive carts and eventually was sold to a trail ride outfit in the Adirondacks where he worked as a mountain pack horse.
Sarge lost his job and was sent to auction when his eyesight started to fail him. Sarge is 100% blind in both eyes now due to a degenerative disease that began a couple of years ago.
He is about 16hhs, in his late teens in perfect health, smart and the alpha leader of his herd of disabled and retired horses.
Sarge came to us through the Dorset Equine Rescue in Vermont who looked for somewhere safe that Sarge could live out his life before he lost his vision totally. Sarge arrived in early Spring 2015 and has become a vital member of the farm. His command of his surroundings is inspiring.
Sarge will be one of the first to greet visitors at the fence. (simply let him know that you are there by speaking in a calm, clear voice.) He loves treats and will tilt his head and smile (he has a great smile!) for them. He is a stunningly handsome, gentle horse and a true inspiration of living with a disability
We are sure he will continue to do great things in his life and we are proud to be alongside him to witness it all!
