This handsome fellow was pulled off a kill lot by a dedicated group of Haflinger lovers when nobody else stepped up to save him from the horrors of the slaughter pipeline. Fanfare is a gelding approximately 9-10 years old and he stands approximately 14H. He has an adorable head with a nice blaze on his face and he has the old time chunky build. Because of the circumstances from which Fanfare was acquired, I do not have any information regarding his history. However, a short video was available of him being ridden bareback at the kill lot. He has been quarantined as a precaution, has a current negative Coggins, has his feet trimmed regularly and is de-wormed on a rotating schedule. Anyone interested in giving Fanfare a forever home should send a message to the Craigslist email address provided to request a home offer application which is required before being considered to adopt him. This application does not commit either party to anything and is simply a pre-screening process. He is a friendly fellow who loves attention and being groomed. Because of his typical Haflinger strength, he does require a confident but kind and experienced home to continue working with him, but he is smart and willing to please and his ground manners have improved immensely. He does not kick, buck or rear when being handled or ridden. He is easy to groom and work around, picks up all four feet easily, takes a saddle without a fuss as long as the cinch is tightened a little at a time (as it should be with all horses), and is easy to bridle. He loves carrots and other horse treats, plus he is very friendly and curious. He stands well for the farrier. His adoption fee is due upon final home approval and completion of the required adoption agreement which is also available through me once that stage has been achieved. Appointments to meet Fanfare can be made after becoming an approved potential home. UPDATE 4/6/14: Fanfare was ridden for the first time today under saddle. He was a very good boy. It was clear that he needs work in getting him to soften up with the bit which I feel is just lack of previous training. He did not do anything wrong and even walked across some ground poles with his rider on his back. UPDATE 5/3/14: Fanfare was tested to see if he is already broke to drive....Yes, he is! I was able to figure out very quickly from the way he "dug in" that his past job in life had been to pull something with substantial weight. He responded very nicely to all of my cues once he understood that I wasn't expecting him to work hard. He would make a nice recreational cart horse for someone with the know-how to teach him that it is okay to lighten up in harness and not have to work so hard. Also, I do not have a driving bit on hand that is right for him and that in itself will help tremendously.
