NJ: 16hh OTTB Dapple Grey Gelding 14 y/o
Silver is a dapple grey, 16hh, 1999 Thoroughbred gelding for free (for the cost of shipping) to an exceptional home. Silver is one of those horses that everyone falls in love with. He’s a sweet, in your pocket kind of guy who needs an owner that can properly provide what he deserves.
Silver has raced in the past and because of that he will need to be on a joint supplement if he is going to be used to moderate to heavy riding.
When I first started riding him he didn’t know much other than go forward. With the help of a trainer he W/T/C and has worked over small fences. He does not have any show experience due to the fact that I just never had the time while I was in college. He has also not been ridden consistently for the past 2 years or so (again, just no time because of work).
He is great with other horses. He’s not a bully and if he’s being bullied he just walks away. He is currently barefoot, but has had shoes in the past. He also currently lives outside 24/7 (no blankets) unless there’s a bad storm rolling through. As long as he has hay/pasture to munch on he could care less (he’s one of those who lives to eat).
Silver is good to trailer, but is a bit hesitant if he hasn’t been trailered in a long time. Clips fine, but needs a twitch (or someone very patient) for his face/ears. Great for baths, farrier and vet (he’s honestly one of the best horses for shots/pulling blood). He does need sedative for the dentist; not because he’s being mean, but because he’s scared. He has a scar on his tongue (no issues with that) which I believe is why he’s scared to get his teeth floated.
