Cooper

DOB: 1/1/2013

Joined the Herd: 2016

Breed: Miniature Horse

Sex: Gelding

Color: Buttermilk Buckskin

Cooper was a rescue in reverse!  This miniature horse was extremely obese when he came to us in the summer of 2016.  In the first picture below you can see the wrinkles in his neck slightly turned – he was so fat he could not reach his side to get a fly. Cooper was also a cryptorchid stallion when he came to Horses for Hope. The surgery for gelding a cryptorchid stallion is $1,000 but the NCSU Veterinary School took him on as a teaching project for their students and he was successfully gelded at no cost to us. Thank you NSCU Vet School!

He is handsome now!
