2000 Bay Dutch Warmblood Gelding
Azarro is a super nice gelding by Heartbreaker. New York Horse Rescue is lucky to have him and we are looking for a special home for him. Azarro was brought over from Europe in 2011 and showed in 1.30 and the adults. He was retired from the show circuit due to a bruised navicular bone. Although he has had a ton of show experience; Lake Placid, Old Salem, Florida, etc., his new retirement life should be much more relaxing - along the lines of basic flat work, trails, etc. Azarro will need extra TLC for his feet including regular shoeing with pads. Azarro is a nice horse, but can be a little silly on the ground. Although he can be spooky, he is super honest and willing to ride. Azarro is NOT a horse for a beginner or intermediate child. He would be great for an experienced "weekend warrior" who just wants to do some light riding.

(unregistered but registration papers available)
Dolly is a very nice APHA mare. She is slighter built and has a very pretty look.

Her dam, Famulus, an appendix, is by Hemp Meyers who is by Hempen, a Thoroughbred. Famulous is out of Native Goodtime who is by Raise a Native (a well known Thoroughbred).
