UNEXPECTEDLY AVAILABLE AGAIN DUE TO A TIMEWASTER!!
34" Registered Shetland Gelding, 13 yrs old, beautiful boy inside and out, has been shown in-hand with great results incl. championship/reserve championship placings. Has never been broken to ride or drive, only shown in-hand.
Fantastic temprement, he loves a fuss and is happy to stand to be pampered and groomed and is very gentle and kind around children. Good in traffic through our rural village, although hasn't been out for a while.
He mixes very well with other ponies and has been turned out with both mares and geldings whilst with us. He is handled daily and shown by my children in addition to myself, and he is excellent and easy to do, however he will sometimes take advantage when being led by trotting off if led by very small children in open fields/spaces.
He is great in the stable (very tidy and easy to muck out), good to load, good with the farrier for a trim (never been shod) and easy to clip (clipped photos on advert from last winter). Fully vaccinated (booster due in June 2020), trimmed and wormed to date, teeth last done Nov 18.
He has previously had Lami (As have many Shetlands and small ponies but sadly a lot of people withhold their knowledge of it when selling) so will need an experienced home that can provide him with suitable restricted grazing with other equine company (He is happy to be left whilst is companions go out, but I do not want him keeping alone).
It has been an extremely hard decision to part with him, and he is only available due to personal circumstances, so please only enquire if you are serious and have a suitable home on offer.
Please provide full details of the home you have on offer when responding to the advert, as finding him the most suitable long term home is paramount.
