OTTER (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 16
Gender: Gelding
Height: 16

Breed: Thoroughbred

Bio: Otter is a 16 year old companion horse. He had a previous EPM diagnosis that resulted in neurological damage that makes him unsuitable to ride. He is an absolute doll - extremely sweet and mostly docile for a thoroughbred (he can be buddy sour/doesn't like being alone so those are the main times when you'll see his thoroughbred make an appearance). He will do just about anything for attention. He has the most luxurious mane I've ever seen on a horse. Otter is 16h & the neurological damage has resulted in some atrophied muscles that make him appear slender. He is safe to be around but typically becomes a tad unstable on his own at the canter and sometimes the trot - often tripping but usually able to catch himself. He's totally safe at a walk or a stand. We've had him as a companion horse for several years now & we've never had any issues at all with his balance during farrier trims either.
