About Junipero

Junipero was removed from negligent owners and placed with Bluebonnet by the courts.

History

Nothing is known of Junipero’s history before coming to Bluebonnet.

Health / Lameness

Junipero was emaciated when he arrived at Bluebonnet, but he has recovered well.  Junipero arrived with a large, boney lump on his head, likely the result of an old injury.  He cut his face next to his left eye after arriving.  The cut required stitches and will likely leave a scar.  He has other old scars from unknown injuries.  However, he appears sound and has no known health or lameness problems.

Other

Junipero would make a nice riding/pleasure/trail horse for an adopter.  We would like whoever adopts him to wait until next year when he’s 3 to start him under saddle, but if you adopt him now you will have time to work on ground work and bond.

Junipero loves people and loves attention.  He’s ready to be someone’s best friend!

Evaluation and Training

Junipero is a very sweet young horse who loves attention.  He’s low man in the pecking order in his current herd and would really love to have another equine friend of his own!  He is good to catch, lead, and load.  He does well in a stall and is also fine in pasture.  He stood well for the farrier on his first visit.
