Tank is an 18 year old draft cross, about 15.1 hands, solid and stocky. Tank is a horse that loves to work, absolutely loves the trails and could go for days. He will cross water, bridges, fallen trees, etc., and will go out alone without issue. While he is a great trail horse, I feel he needs a confident, calm and experienced rider. He will occasionally spook but if his rider is calm he will stay calm and carry on his way. While he's a great leader, I have discovered he does best at the back of the line so he doesn't have things going on behind him to startle him. I have had him for 4 years now and we just aren't a good fit, I am not as calm of a rider as he needs. He's beautiful and loves to have a job. He's 100% healthy and sound, great for the vet and farrier. He is up to date on his feet, shots and teeth. He is barefoot with solid feet and he self loads into a trailer. He is good for baths and will tolerate clippers but doesn't love them. He is branded and I was able to track it and talk to his original owner out in Montana. I found out he was a PMU foal from Canada. He eats minimal grain (Empower Balance, mostly for the vitamins) and is a very very easy keeper, he could get fat on air. He is respectful of fencing and has great ground manners. He lunges beautifully (will free lunge) and has a great extended trot. I will be completely honest with all I know about him to anyone interested. A great home is an absolute must. He is located in Ashford CT.
