Carter (Adopted)

Carter is a larger pony (approximately 18 years old, 14hh) who came in as a stallion on 04/26/21 from a Carlton County humane case. He was living in horrible conditions with no turnout whatsoever. We want to thank Investigator Oquist from the Animal Humane Society of MN for assistance in this case. We also want to thank everyone at Anoka Equine Veterinary Services for their care and for the “makeover” Carter received. He has now had a dental float (he had some extremely sharp, painful points–see photo) and he has been gelded. he is putting weight on nicely and will soon go for a training assessment.

Update October 2021: Carter started training with Sarah Helms of Step Up Horsemanship but on her recommendation we pulled him out of training so he could continue to gain strength and muscle tone. As of February 2022, he has not been back under saddle but he is doing well and could certainly continue his training!
