Arrival Date: May 26, 2018
As the result of the efforts of Lisa Michele, Gulli came home on May 26, 2018. Gulli was thought to be in his 20’s and had lameness issues so his riding days are behind him.
On July 26, 2016 he was rescued from Ontario Livestock Auction by HiCaliber Horse Rescue, a local rescue that was closing in 2018. Since older, lame horses are rarely adopted, this handsome boy was in need of a forever home. We are grateful to Lisa for facilitating his transfer from HiCaliber to us and we are grateful to HiCaliber for rescuing him two years earlier
While at HiCaliber he was known as Gulliver. But, since we already had a Gulliver at the time, his name was shortened to Gulli. During his time with HiCaliber, he was fostered by Lisa Michele.
He has shoulder and hip lameness that did not resolve with reconditioning. According to what Lisa could find, before arriving neglected at the Ontario Auction, Gulli was a racing thoroughbred. His lip tattoo indicates that he might be Throw Down Boy, who had five racing starts. The brand on his hip indicates that after racing he ended up as a Mexican rodeo (charo) horse.
This poor guy has been through a lot. And yet through it all, he has maintained a kind, gentle spirit. Thanks to the support of our donors, he is living his best life with “da boyz” in our gelding corral. He is definitely one of the mischief-makers in this group. We love seeing him play with Frankie, Dutch and the other boys, plus Cisco, the burro! Thanks to their antics, there is never a dull moment in this group.
