    Default Free 9 yo 18H Percheron near Scranton, PA - rides and drives

    THIS IS NOT MY HORSE - Just posting because I'd hate to see an otherwise healthy draftie go to auction.

    Contact the owner through Craigslist: http://allentown.craigslist.org/grd/864626191.html

    This is what the owner responded to me:

    [FONT=&quot]First come first serve at this point I just need him gone.
    We are North of Scranton
    He is only green broke
    He is afraid of the farrier, we have to rasp his feet ourselves.
    He has a kind disposition, but has fear issues that a beginner should be aware of
    He is sound, however trips alot due to his feet need trimming/also has scars (from being chained to stocks we are assuming)
    Came from amish auction, was sold as a lead horse rides and drives, thats all we knew
    We've had him for 2 years and never harnessed him, but rode him twice.
    Mostly he has just stood around eating insane amounts of feed and gobbling up our pasture

    He can be seen at:

    New Holland horse sale is Monday, sadly f he is not gone by then you can see him there.

    [/FONT]Can someone who wants a project go get this guy? Sounds like he might have potential with the right person.

    If you are seriously interested, they do have contact information on their website that is listed in the message from the OP.

    Hopefully, the reason for the deletion by the author is that the big guy found a new home that will treat him right.
