Roman is a 2004 chestnut Thoroughbred gelding standing just shy of 15.2 hands. He came off the track on Monday, November 17, 2008. He is one of “Tony’s ExRacers” and is supported financially by a grant given to Friends of Ferdinand, Inc. from the Tony Stewart Foundation. Roman has been evaluated by the vet and farrier. He has also had his shoes pulled. He is getting some well deserved time off and pasture turnout to learn how to be a horse again. He is sore on three feet due to severe thrush and contracted heels. He’ll be evaluated again in a couple months once his hoof issues have resolved.
Personality wise, he is just looking for someone to trust. He LOVES getting massages and really relaxes into them. I’m looking forward to helping this guy come out of his shell. I think he’s going to make someone a really nice horse!
