He is a just coming four year old colt, ranch raised, never been raced, well socialized but relatively untouched as far as basic training ect. He is however, proving to be very good minded, extremely willing and remarkably sensible (doesnt seem to be a naughty bone in his body so far).
Plan is to get him going a bit and get him out and about--see how he does, then maybe YEH in the fall if he comes along well enough.
We do plan to geld him, have his teeth looked at, get his feet organized (he seems to have great looking feet-just needs to be better balanced) and all the other things you do with a new horse. He seems like a very 'normal', well adjusted, well socialized TB Colt--so not in a mad rush to geld him--but not looking to run another Colt/Stallion on at this time.
The plan is to get him started and then get him out and about some--if he does well we may try to take him YEH in the fall.
the white marking on his leg is just that--a white spot--he is a sabino. He was really cool with the pony--not nasty at all just happy to make a friend.
WOW! Thanks for all the nice words for the new guy! We Looked at about 14 youngsters (most were quite good and obviously in good health-but all pretty raw/unkempt). I especially liked the coming four year old colts--and this one really caught my eye---not just because he is 'good looking/well made" but something about his temperament/demeanor.
Happy to report we had a chance to work with him just a little bit this morning and Im really pleased with how his brain works and his response to people/our requests. I think he is going to be a really neat horse to work with and Im really excited about him.
I am still interested in hearing from anyone that might have worked with this line--I did read that his sire Indy was quite a "Looker" himself with also apparently a good mind---but beyond that no experience with AP Indy or Seatle Slew sire line.
