This handsome guy was relinquished by his owner in January 2014 after his owner developed health issues. He shared a (dry) pasture with another horse for 12 years, and he was very protective of his pasture-mate, much to his detriment. Banjo had a very sweet side, but he also tested his handler, and displayed some naughty stud-like behavior. He was fearful of ropes, and he also challenged his handler when approached with a lead rope. We were told he was used as a child’s riding horse (hard to imagine) 12 years prior.
Banjo has been coming around nicely. Separating him from his former pasture-mate helped him tremendously. He has softened, and he is becoming a very social guy that enjoys attention. He needs a confident handler and consistent handling to continue developing his own confidence. Banjo has not been tested under saddle at this point, and he is NOT a beginner horse. He is current with vaccines, deworming, and dental care. His hooves are still a work in progress.
