2008 14hh Registered Fjord Gelding
CMF Gizland aka Gizmo is a 2008 (5-6-2008) purebred registered brown dun Fjord Horse gelding. His sire is CMF Landrin and his dam is Dungannon's Mari C-2038. Before we purchased him he was used as a trail horse in a trail-riding business. Upon bringing him home we found that he hadn't really had much groundwork or training and was in rough shape (hooves needed work, needed some bulk put on him). We've cleaned him up, had his feet fixed (natural balance trimming), and now he's healthy. We purchased Gizmo with the intention of using him as a beginner's horse. Unfortunately while the seller claimed that he would be a great beginner's horse this hasn't been the case. He's rather nervous and we suspect he may have been abused some time in his past. We already have several project horses and Gizmo is being wasted lazing around our pastures.
The posted photos were taken after he had been with us for awhile- they progress over time to the head shots which were taken only two weeks ago. Please excuse the strange cut to his mane in one shot- that has been repaired and now his mane is tidy.
We would love to find a great home for Gizmo; no beginners please. While we believe that one day Gizmo will be an incredible beginner's horse- as most Fjords are- right now Gizmo needs some time and someone to bond with to get over his trust issues. We've spent many hours on him already, now he just needs a person to commit to him. We've been working with Gizmo with the farrier (he stood great the last time he was trimmed), clippering (still a little nervous, but fantastic with some patience), leading and tying (doing well with a little encouragement) and spraying (again needs a little patience to stand quietly). Gizmo gets along great with our other horses, doesn't seem to mind our crazy goats and pigs, and doesn't seem fazed by dogs. He's friendly and sweet, but still nervous.
Gizmo is current on worming and shots, as well as trims (natural balance). He stands about 14hh. He was previously ridden Western with a loose-ring snaffle. You can view his bloodlines here: http://www.nfhr.com/ponyweb/ponyweb.cgi?horse=201056&Page=61&Sort=0.
For more information please contact me via email through Craigslist. Serious inquiries only, please. Gizmo deserves someone who will love him as much as we have, and who will put in more time than we have right now. Payments possible with a signed contract; Gizmo would remain with me until payment was made in full.
