March 24, 2017:  Austin shares a foster home with his gal Paryss and plays his days away dreaming of a home and a person to call his own.

Pasture Pal: Ohhhh, Austin.  Austin would be best suited for his own TV show.  You absolutely cannot be in a bad mood around him; his antics will brighten any day.  Austin cannot be ridden due to severe ringbone in the front and back.  He has been pastured and cannot wait to find a person to call his own.

Austin along with Ranger has been moved to a wonderful foster home where they will be able to enjoy pasture life 24/7 !  What a change from the hospital setting of the sanctuary.  Austin is still awaiting his forever home.

July 28,2014: Austin has a new foster home! He is living with Crecencia. He loves to entertain a new audience. He is getting some great one on one attention. Austin would make an amazing addition to any home. This goofball will brighten anyone’s day!

December 25, 2013:  Austin and Kate have been accepted into the final stages of clinical trials at OSUVTH (Ohio State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital) in Columbus with regards to a new medication that may help horses with lameness and arthritis issues. They will be residents at the vet hospital for several weeks while the medication is administered and documented. What a great opportunity to possibly help these horses with their lameness issues and to help pave the way for this pain relief to be available to other horses as well. I can’t say it will help with Austin’s antics.  🙂

August 19, 2013:  Austin has come back into our adoption program and needs to find his forever home.  He is a beautiful horse and is extremely playful – LOVES jolly balls, other horses, and to play halter tag. Austin is quite the comedian. This guy can do light riding, however, he may come up lame occasionally; he has ringbone in his right front and right hind pastern joints.  His comfort level should improve greatly once the joint space closes. If you are willing to give a little extra care for his issues he may just surprise you as the best horse you have ever owned.  He sure is a looker!  The far right pic is Austin’s original arrival at Happy Trails.
