Status: Available for Adoption as a pasture pet (not rideable)
Justice is a beautiful, tall off the track thoroughbred. His registered name is "Unbridled Justice" and he is the son of "Unbridled's Song", a famous race horse who raced in the late 90's. His sire won 5 races from 12 starts, and was awarded posthumously the "Leading Sire in North America of 2017". Justice's start was a bit more bumpy than that - he lived at Emerald Downs and had 25 starts, although he never raced - and with his prospects high, sold for 7 figures, with great hopes. However, Justice was found to have a chip on his knee, ending his racing options - and he was put out to pasture, with plans to be a stud, fathering many in the next generation of race horses. Those plans were foiled as well, when he was discovered to be sterile.
None of these have slowed Justice down, however, and he continues to press on with his unflappable personality and attraction to those lady horses (mares, of course). All the ladies love Justice and are always trying to get his attention. And, he loves being in a herd environment with all his buddies around him.
As time has gone on with Justice, several more issues have arisen - he's been diagnosed with "Roarer's Disease", which causes half of his larynx to be paralyzed - a condition that doesn't limit him too much, but does sound like he's roaring like a lion when he runs and causes him to get winded a bit more quickly than other horses.
Justice also has a condition called EOTRH (Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis) - which is thought to be an auto-immune disorder, causing lesions in his mouth, and may eventually result in the roots of his teeth dissolving. Justice however seems to be managing well - at times he likes to chew on things or carry them around - like his lead rope. Sometimes he makes funny faces. But, ultimately he doesn't appear to be having too much pain so far with regard to his teeth.
All in all, Justice is quite a character. He's a gorgeous thoroughbred, standing majestically taller than almost all the other horses in the barn, and oozes personality all the time. He would do best as a pasture pet in a herd environment, where he can bask in the love and health of being with several buddies. He does well with both mares and geldings. He's been known to stand outside in the rain in his run-in just to be able to see his buddies, foregoing the option to be inside his stall, dry and warm, with his food - or maybe even run back and forth, grabbing a mouthful of food, eating it outside in the rain while watching his buddies in their stalls.
