Pickles, with a name like that what’s not to love? This beautifully kind chap is a 15.2h 2007 Thoroughbred gelding. He has the most pleasant disposition and calmness about him. Such a joy to spend time with and one of those horses you immediately fall in love with. He is looking for a perfect home and person to give him a place to become a welcomed and enjoyed companion horse. He is very easy going, but has that lovely brightness and intelligence that TB’s bring with them. This guy has way more to offer than just being a beautiful lawn ornament. He loves children and all people alike. His current owner would be thrilled to see him go to a home that adores him as much as she and her family does.
After showing signs of discomfort when being asked to collect a canter, Pickles was diagnosed with Kissing Spine in July 2021. After over a year of rest, Pickles has remained pasture sound with zero signs of discomfort on no meds whatsoever. So his owner would be open to considering someone wishing to have him further evaluated by a vet for light pleasure/trail riding.
Pickles has an impressive past career being purchased recently from Aiken, SC in Feb 2021 and brought up to MD. He has tons of experience in Hunter/Jumper, Eventing, Foxhunting and Trails. It’s easy to see why he is such a well-rounded chap for handling and spending time with. He was super for haltering, grooming, general handling and crossties. He checked every box on our list.
Pickles currently lives in a small herd with one Haflinger gelding and a mini donkey. He has full turnout, with access to a large run-in shed. He prefers to have company in the paddock, as most horses do, and can get a little unsettled if the other horse is taken out and away from him, but his behavior is by no means severe. He lives at a lovely private home that also has free ranges chickens. He is more of a leader in the field but remains considerate to his herd mates. He is up to date with the farrier, dentist, vet visit, Coggins and vaccinations. He is currently barefoot.
