Baxter arrived at RHH from a riding program in NJ where he worked for 5 years despite his chronic back pain, arthritis in both front feet and a bone chip in his left front leg. He also suffers from breathing problems that most likely are due from the pollution at the stables where he was housed. They were built on an old land fill.
Even though Baxter has numerous physical infirmities, he still can be seen running through his pasture to be the first horse to reach the feed bucket.
Baxter is a strong and beautiful horse that is admired for both his grit and spunk. He is a trooper!
