Handsome 14 YO 17hh Bay Thoroughbred TB Gelding
Bruce is a 14 year old, 17 hand classy thoroughbred, former winner & respected Canadian campaigner of $360k. He retired from racing on an injury that has left him with an enlarged ankle. It doesn't stop him from daily pasture play with his companion…..neither seem to have gotten the memo saying they don't have to run hard anymore! They take their play seriously & he always comes back fine. Again, he plays very hard so trail riding would be easy-peasy. He's been known to miss the turns & has easily cleared the pasture fence….the logs on the hacks would be fine. And fun! He moves beautifully, with much suspension. His long, slanted shoulder would almost guarantee a smooth ride.Bruce is not a terribly complicated man; loves under-the-neck scratches, 100% sweet natured, prefers your company over food, loves peeping in the windows, helps with the gardening (rolled over and squashed our squash more than once), plays in the sprinkler, is never mean to others, curious, and very handsome. He will help wash the car playing with the bubbles. He needs to be reminded it's not acceptable to walk up onto the porch & drink out of the cat's water dish just because it's closer. He loves sliced carrots & peppermints. Not apples or beer. He has ulcers and appreciates a bit of help with that. Sometimes he cribs and we've noticed it goes hand in hand with tummy aches. A collar reminds him to eat his hay so that doesn't happen. Sometimes he goes great spans (months!) without a collar at all. Being the docile one, care must be taken that his feed is not stolen from others. If put with another on the same amount of ration, he shares nicely. He is currently on pasture care, but can & does adjust to stall time. He wants desperately to please, but has not had the good fortune of anyone teaching him how. Retirement has not been easy & it's through no fault of his own. Bruce suffers from separation anxiety and will bond strongly with another. He craves structure. When taught a routine, apart from others, he adjusts quite well and one can then see his potential. He needs a person who understands this, can wait it out, and is able to handle him when excited. All that excitement must exit somewhere and for Bruce it's from his hind legs. He kicks out when nervous and alone. Again, he's not at all mean & we feel certain the right conditioning will let him settle into a wonderful riding companion. We think he is someone's potential super-star. Bruce currently resides in Woodbine, MD. He is available for a $300 donation to an approved home. Please contact me for more information on this horse at [email protected]
