Mo Bux needs your help to find a great home. He is a three-year-old super sweet QH ex-racehorse. His race breeders (Sue and Bernie) home raised him. When Mo was a yearling, he was purchased by a race trainer. Mo began his racing career as a two-year-old -- but he soon developed fetlock injuries. His breeders bought him back and sent him to A&M for surgery. They did this even though it was clear that Mo would never be a racehorse again. Mo's breeders cared about him very much and wanted him to have the best life possible. They donated Mo to LOPE after he had recovered from his surgery. At that time, the prognosis was hopeful that Mo could be a light riding horse. But it has become clear that Mo will need to stay as pasture pal or companion horse, due to the nature of his fetlock injury. Mo has a sweet, affectionate personality and is gentle to handle on the ground. He gets along with all types of horses (geldings, mares, herd bosses and so on). He loves attention and people -- and would be a wonderful family pet or companion horse. Can you help Mo find a home as a pasture pal? His adoption fee is minimal to an awesome home. Please pass the word -- and let's see if we can get Mo the home he deserves by Christmas :) ... See MoreSee Less
