Metty – Rehabilitating – Fully Sponsored by Colin H.!!
Metty is a 14 year old Thoroughbred Gelding who stands at _ hands. We currently can’t state his Jockey Club name or about his career, when we’re allowed we will. Sadly, over his racing career was over he found in a Kill Pen located in Mississippi. Thanks to Racefund who bail out, quarantine, and find sanctuaries, rescues and or forever homes for raced Thoroughbreds. Since he was bailed out of the Kill Pen he has been in quarantine. He has gained a lot of weight while at quarantine, when he arrives he won’t have that much longer until he is fully rehabilitated. He arrived here at the rescue on December 26 ,2021. Upon arrival he is extremely kind and just wants to be everyone’s buddy horse or human. He does have severe rain rot which we have started to treat immediately. Our vet has looked at him and she thinks he stifle issue on the back right side. He also has an injury on his Cannon bone that has already beginning to heal. Once he is fully rehabilitated he will receive a soundness evaluation to ensure he is sound and if so what level of rider he will need. As we learn more about his personality we will update his page. He is being sponsored by one of our new hard working volunteer Colin H.!!
