For Loan Only - Vic, bay dun Shetland gelding, Shetland Society registered & passported, 10 years old and approx 34". Vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, trimmed, teeth done, etc. Excellent to do in all ways – catch, tie, lead, load, groom, feet. He has been introduced to traffic, tarpaulins, dogs, cows, sheep & harness.
Vic is an incredibly special boy who loves nothing more than to please you, he really loves people, so much so that he would like a person of his own that he can bond with. He has lived happily with geldings with us – he gets on with everyone. We think he would do best to remain with geldings in his new loan home, as he is very playful.
Vic will excel in all ways - he loves to be doing something and would very much enjoy working. He is a very solid gelding of a good size, so could be a driven pony. He would also be great for agility as he has proven very brave with a handler he trusts. Or if you just wanted a family friend to go for walks, he would also enjoy seeing the world that way. He would make an excellent showing pony, with lots of bone, good conformation & paces. Vic has just started to learn to lunge and long rein, with a view to being broken to drive in the future.
While he is easily handled by children under supervision, as he is quite a sensitive chap, we feel he would do best as a pony for an adult primarily - we also would like to find him a position for life, so do not want him returned due to being outgrown by a child or a child having lost interest. Whilst very well behaved and good to do, he has quite a big personality, so would not be suitable for the nervous or novice. He does have mild sweet itch, but this can be fully controlled by rugs and electric fencing.
Vic will be loaned out with a full contract, a home visit, and we may ask for references. Further photos & videos available.
