NJ Bussell – “Ike”

NJ Bussell – “Ike”

“Ike” is a 5 year old, 16.2+ hand bay gelding who exudes class. Ike only ran two times, and after suffering a condylar fracture while working, he was retired. Ike’s fracture was repaired surgically by the wonderful vets at Mid Atlantic Equine and he is expected to have a full recovery!

Ike has been at After the Races since May and requires a significant amount of time to rehabilitate his injury.  While on complete stall rest, Ike is proving an absolute gentleman to work with and possesses the most wonderful puppy dog personality. He follows calmly when led, loves to cuddle, and will absorb any and all attention you send his way. He stood perfectly for the vet and farrier, for his baths, and was an excellent patient when having his bandages changed earlier on.

While Ike is expected to have a full recovery, he is one of the horses who really needs a significant amount of time until he is ready to adopt. If you would like to contribute to Ike’s rehabilitation, please consider donating today.

We would consider adopting Ike out early only to an experienced home willing to follow his rehabilitation plan carefully. If you think you could be that home, please feel free to contact us today to discuss details.

Adopt Ike!
