Silver (Leica Ballad)

Gelding Thoroughbred

Silver was surrendered in light condition. He had a few melanomas under his tail. We raised enough money to send him to UQ for the Grey Horse Melanoma vaccination procedure. This is where they remove part of the melanoma and create an individual vaccine which is then injected back into the horse to help destroy the current melanomas. Silver failed his pre-assessment for riding due to a number of physical issues. It seems he’d had a hard life before coming to us. However, he was perfectly paddock sound and an absolute dream to do anything with. His ground manners were impeccable and he is off to his new home as a companion.
