HealthKissing Spine - Requires therapy or retirement

Current assessment and status: Big Handsome TB Gelding that requires therapy or retirement.

My name says it all…I am sleek and handsome, a bit of a rascal they say, and still quite youthful. I LOVE to be pampered and well groomed by my people. I have a habit of making faces when they find the right spot! I can be a ham and I love to play hard with the guys, although I do get nervous and anxious in new situations. My problem is that I have back issues. They call it “Kissing Spine” which I’m told can be helped by injections and therapy. I have no job and cannot work due to back pain so I cannot afford the therapy I need and I have no adoption prospects. My NEER family is over full with needy horses so I am asking for help. Do you or someone you know have back problems? If so, then maybe you are my Kindred Spirit.


*NEER North will make every effort to use funds donated through this page toward Smirk’s care. In the event of adoption, or other unforseen extreme circumstance, NEER North will use funds to support other Equines in need in our care.
