Laramie is an older sweet guy who was rescued from the Fallon feedlot with the help of the FOBs.
We were told that he had been being used as a lesson horse before being dumped at the lot for slaughter. Laramie was very depressed at the time of his rescue, and very quiet. He had a very sad face at the time of his rescue. He also had a small puncture by his eye that was becoming infected. It was really bothering him upon his rescue.
4/17/07 We are still treating Laramie's eye and giving him some pain medicine- it is still bothering him a bit. He loves to be groomed- is still quite depressed, but will come around once he realizes he is safe.
Laramie being evaluated on 9/9/07. He is now available to the right home. Laramie still needs to gain some weight, but we are willing to let him go to a loving home to continue to be fattened up. He is looking for a quiet and loving home with some very light riding and alot of spoiling. He would be wonderful with children.
3/6/08 We have decided to keep Laramie at Shiloh and use him for some light lessons. This will keep him a bit active which will keep him stay healthy and limber. We think he will like a little light job and some extra attention. If the perfect home comes along, we might adopt him out, but we are not actively looking to place him.

9/16/10 We are watching Laramie closely, he is showing some signs of possible heart issues- swelling of his legs, irregular heart rythum, slight cough, lethargy- but he is eating well and still enjoying his time with his gummie friends. We are keeping him comfortable with Banamine as needed. We did move him into a barn stall for a day- but he was so unhappy that we made the decision to put him back into his herd. It looks like his age is just catching up with him...
