Laid-Back Family Horse
Marley is a 14.2 hand bay QH gelding. He has a big blaze and three socks. He has one blue eye- lots of chrome!
Marley is up to date on vaccines, teeth floating, farrier, chiropractor, and worming. He stands like a champ to have his feet trimmed and doesn’t require shoes. He will tie and stand quietly for fly spray and bathing. He jumps right in a trailer. No vices. Great ground manners, he is not pushy at all.
When being ridden, Marley is a low-energy, “stop to smell the roses” kind of guy. He is happiest just ambling down a trail. He will ride out with others or alone, and will lead or follow. If you are looking for a speed freak, this isn’t your horse. Marley is not spooky at all, we hauled him to Lake Snowden and he handled everything with ease! Hills, water, vehicles, scary bridges, he’s got you covered. Someone needs to take this little horse in Extreme Cowboy Races- he would clean up! This horse is quiet enough for a beginner, if I only had one phrase to describe him it would be “a safe family horse”. He is easy to catch in the field (he is waiting at the gate when you walk up). You can ride this guy around the pasture bareback using his mane to steer (at the walk… he’s not Stacy Westfall!). He will even stop and back up using just his mane! His personality makes you fall in love. He is quiet and respectful. A child can ride him and pick up his feet. He doesn’t neck rein, but has a soft mouth and is responsive to your aids. He is a cute mover! Honestly I can’t say anything bad about this little horse! He is a solid citizen!
Marley was rescued earlier this summer from a kill pen at Sugarcreek. What an amazing horse like this was doing there I will never know. To ensure his soundness, he has been seen by multiple veterinarians, a chiropractor, and his level of training has been fully assessed by us. He has been given the “all clear” to find a new home. This guy deserves a good home- he really is a handy little horse! Marley will be sent with a trial period to ensure that the home is a good fit. Sound and sane, money- back guarantee! We will give special consideration to 4H kids. If not sold before Sept 8th, WATCH FOR HIM IN THE DELAWARE ALL-HORSE PARADE!!
