Gelding available as stallion/stallion prospect companion LEASE SW OH can travel
I am looking for a farm whose young stallion(s) needs a gelding companion. My guy is not ridable due to an injury, this would be a companion lease only. He is still quite sound, more than just "pasture sound". I will provide all supplements and could pay expense board to stallion owner if so negotiated. He will only go to an exceptional, well maintained situation. He is NOT a throwaway horse.
My gelding was raised in a herd of 70+ stallions/some geldings, ages long weanling through about 6 or 7 years old. He can help instill manners and respect for authority with your youngsters, but isn't a mean or aggressive horse. He very rarely kicks; he postures, with enough true pestering I have seen him kick, but even then he only escalated in stages, so your youngster is not likely to be injured. He has been turned out with a variety of young stock and tends to help maintain a structured herd. I have seen three year olds rear on his back, etc, and he does not kick.
I have no need to place my guy, but if he can be useful to someone, I'd like to see him being used. I am willing to have him travel if you are not local; a STELLAR farm environment is paramount. If you feel your youngster needs to learn to be a horse, but would bully or be abused by your other companion options, please PM me.
