    Default FTGH 13 yr old OTTB in TN

    Home needed for 13 yr old 16h OTTB gelding. Chestnut with white – he is a handsome fellow who is just not a match for me or my husband. He raced till he was about 7 we bought him at 8 – and since we’ve had him he honestly has not had much work – only inconsistent light w/t work and at this point hasn’t been ridden or anything in over a year. I hopped him over a few x rails when we first got him but I’ve never even cantered him under saddle. He can be very pushy on the ground – he has my number and runs all over me but is much better for my husband. I really think he could be a nice horse for someone that had the time to really work with him – he is a gentleman when he is worked consistently - at one point I even gave a few w/t lessons on him. He seems sound – he is a little footsore right now because he is barefoot and the ground has been hard. Most likely has ulcers from his racing days but they are easily controlled. As I said he is a bit footsore right now – but actually has pretty good fast growing feet for a TB and does fine barefoot if not in work. Typical thin skinned TB – loves his stall hates bugs. Very in your pocket personality – has to have his nose in everything.

    I really really adore this guy but we’ve started doing more trail riding and western so he really needs a home with his own person – I feel terribly guilty seeing him just standing around. I honestly should have found him a home 3 years ago – but I kept thinking I would find time to really get him going and keep him that way and I let my pride get in the way of what is best for him.

    Please just message me with any questions and I can email some pics. I really want this guy to find the perfect home so I’ll tell you the good bad and ugly about him – I don’t want there to be any surprises. We will require vet and at least one other reference – I don’t expect him to go to the Ritz but I want to know he’ll be well taken care of.

    This is no – will be taken to auction ad – he’s been with us for 5 years and if I can’t find him a good home he’ll stay right where he is until I do. I just feel that I owe it to him to try to find his match.

    Thanks
