Buddy is a gaited 2000, TWH standing at 15.2h and looking for a wonderful place to call home. He is very much loved by his current people, who took him on from the kindness of their hearts. They would love to see him be fully enjoyed at a new forever home, where he will be able to be in more consistent work.
Buddy is a super sweet, bright eyed and bushy tailed kind of guy. He is intelligent, patient and most suited to a trail riding life, full of adventure. Buddy has a history with laminitis, which can be controlled by routine trims, monitoring of diet and then being in light to moderate regular work. This will be an important factor to consider as he looks for his next spot.
He is great for tacking, grooming and basic handling. He’s not a fan of cross-ties or bathing but likely will tolerate with the correct guidance. He’s most recently been loved by a novice teen, who has worked with him in-hand and some light ring work. He is most suited to an advanced beginner (or above) with access to a trainer.
He likes to look for treats by nibbling but responds well to boundaries when asked. He appears to have had a good groundwork foundation in the past, in-hand and on the lunge.
Buddy currently lives in a small mixed herd in a large field and is second in command. He is up to date with the farrier, vet visit and vaccinations. His Coggins can be draw prior to him finding his new person.
