Apollo is our newest arrival from the MSSPA. Apollo is a three year old Appendix QH gelding that had a tough beginning to life. He was an orphan foal that ended up being bounced around from home to home where along the way he became intimidating, aggressive, and borderline dangerous. Thankfully through some connections, he found his way to the MSSPA instead of the auction. It was the caring people at the MSSPA that gave Apollo his second chance at life. They gave him the TLC he deserved, which included treating him for ulcers, hoof care, worming, and putting on some necessary pounds. They were then able to realize that Apollo was just misunderstood, and with some time and dedication were able to unveil his untapped potential.
We are very excited to continue the great work that the MSSPA has started with this young horse, and to be a part of his heartwarming story. We are still getting to know Apollo but we can’t waiting to further his education here at Horses With Hope. Say tuned for more of Apollo’s progress!
