Free Morgan/Percheron Cross in Central MA
I adopted Trevor from a lady on Long Island. He hadn't done anything for years and was living in their back yard with a pony. I foolishly believed her when she told me he'd make a good husband horse with a little polishing. I would never say she intentionally misled me, but she also knew I would give him a an excellent home and didn't want me to leave without him. Unfortunately, I soon found out that Trevor is green broke at best and not appropriate for what I need.
A friend's daughter has ridden him a few times over the summer, but he recently dumped her (very gently ;)) in a hay field a few weeks back and she hasn't been back to ride him since. :( He really hates riding in the ring, and would much rather be out on the trails. He'll go by himself, but is definitely better with a buddy. He'll walk calmly for hours, but gets a little "up" when you canter and will through the occasional happy buck.
If he was my only horse, I'd spend a few months working with him and I'm sure he'd be fine for an advanced beginner. But I just don't have the time and I hate to see him sit and rot in the field.
He's very handsome, black with three high whites and a big star, gorgeous long tail and slight feathering on his fetlocks. He's 13 yo, a very stout 15.2, goes barefoot, no soundness issues, good for the vet, farrier and dentist. A little bratty in the barn, but not dangerous in the least, just pushy. Easy to catch out in our big field and an easy keeper. I just took the pic this morning and you can see he's fat on only 1 1/2 quarts of pellets twice a day and pasture, no hay.
I'm in no rush to get rid of him, an excellent long term home is my priority. I did sign an adoption agreement with the woman I got him from in NY, but unless she agrees to take him back (which I highly doubt), the agreement will be void.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you'd like other pictures of him. Thanks!
