  • Sweet sound older babysitter gelding in Central PA

    Very very sweet 1990 standardbred gelding in good health and sound. Picked him up several years ago because my husband loved him and wanted to ride, which he did (some) - and at the time we had our own place. At the time he lived out 24/7, trail rode with the hubby or guests on rare occasion and was just a generally fat and happy old pony. Circumstances have now changed and boarding just isn't his happiest life....he's great with kids, farrier, vet, loads on anything anywhere - he's been there done that to say the least

    Make no mistake - he's paid his dues and I will find a way to continue providing for him regardless. However, i think he'd be happier in a slightly different situation. So I thought I'd put some feelers out to see if anyone needs a babysitter or has room in their pasture and heart for a lovable old guy <3

      Mouse&Bay - sorry that I clearly offended you. I sincerely wish my circumstances hadn't changed, and that I still had my farm, where he was turned out 24/7, though loved on regularly, and much happier. However, as I indicated above I will continue providing for him and doing anything I can to make him as happy as possible.....including putting some feelers out to see if someone has a better situation where he could be turned out as a babysitter for another horse or something similar that he would be happier with. He just isn't happy in a boarding environment, and unfortunately I don't have a way to provide something else for him at this juncture.

        Don't feel bad about what you are trying to do, DSLH - I have had a few horses over the years that came to me in their late twenties for different reasons and they all lived out what remained of their lives here, happily. I currently have a few horses in their thirties, so your boy may have many good, comfortable years remaining.
