|Name: Erkle||T-Bar Number: H045|

|Date Came to T-Bar: 2007|
|Breed: Quarter Horse|
|Riding Abilities: Non-rideable|
Not for adoption
|Erkle lost his front left hoof to a rattle snake when he was 2 years old. It grew back but with a serious rotated coffin bone issue- requiring frequent trims on both front feet (prone to founder if not trimmed).
The owner lost her place soon after the bite incident when Hurricane Ike struck, so she “donated” Erkle to TBAR. He’s about 9 yrs. old now, VERY friendly but shouldn’t be ridden by anyone over 20 lbs. He’s a beautiful thoroughbred and the class clown – always getting himself in trouble. If you would like to sponsor Erkle, please email [email protected]!
