Super cute 5 year old, 15.1hh Palomino Gelding in Ohio- Healthy and Sound with VIDEO!
I have this little guy that I have had almost a year now. I pulled him out of a very bad situation, and spent a lot of time, energy, and money getting him fattened up, teeth floated, feet sorted out, caught up on everything etc, etc, etc. I was told he was 5 years old when I picked him up and his teeth seem to confirm that.
-SUPER CUTE. Seriously he's adorable.
-Nice little mover, big open stride, nothing exceptional, but overtracks at the walk and tracks up at the trot. Canter is a bit unbalanced but will be very rideable.
-Actually very easy to ride. Not spooky, naughty, etc. Just goes around on a loopy rein, trots over poles and low fences with no issue.
-Not a mean bone in his body
-Sound and clean legged- looks like he had a small splint on his RF (or was it LF...) a while back
-Has been barefoot his whole life, can live outside, easy keeper.
-Toes in slightly in front. He does track straight.
-I think he had a bad childhood. Many fear issues on the ground. Scared to death of bath time, spray bottles, clippers, etc.
-He isn't spooky about THINGS, just about what you are going to do to him. i.e. will walk right over the scary blue tarp without blinking, but if someone is holding the blue tarp... YIKES! Mane pulling is an issue but we got it done because I couldn't stand his big bushy mane.
-Needs a very quiet, patient handler that will go slow and help him build confidence.
He has gotten better than he was when he first arrived, but I don't really have time to put as much groundwork into him as he needs and his progress has really been slower than it should be as a result. I have been trying to sell him for a while, but money isn't the goal with this horse and I will happily give him to someone who will go slow with him, be kind and patient with him and do right by him.

Please feel free to call, text or email me to discuss him further. (Texting is best at least at first, as my voicemail is acting up)
