Nice looking palomino gelding getting more color as he ages. Born June 29, 2010, time for him to go to a trainer to get him started under saddle. Had his Rabies, West Nile, E/W Sleeping Sickness, and Tetanus boosters on April 19th, so current with those
His full palomino sister and full palomino brother both matured at 14.3hh like their Dam who was from a long line of palominos on the female side. So, I thought this pretty fellow would work well with my aching knees to get on. But, even though I did not push him with grain, he's just about 15.2hh high now! I decided not to send him to the trainer last year, because he is getting to tall for my arthritis knees, I need a horse closer to the ground now days.
His breeding includes good old working Polish bloodline and known to mature slow and live a long life if they stay healthy. Mentally he is more like a coming 3 yr old. He is halter broke only, stands tied good to hitch rail with either short or long lead. Use to rope touching his legs. Very friendly fellow, first to come to gate to get caught.
I did not get free time to do ground work on him the last two years, aging parents that needed trips to Dr's, care, then lining up estate sales took up all our free time the last couple years, not to mention a very stormy winter, so he is a fresh book for someone to write on. But he is a smart alert colt, he should pick up things fast.
He is a light palomino getting more color as he ages, beautifully marked, he has classic dish face with a star with connected strip to snip over left nostril and upper lip. A left fore partial sock, right fore partial fetlock and right hind stocking. Both his dam and granddam were dappled palominos. He is long legged, medium length back with a very good wither to hold a saddle, a semi-QH tree or barrel racer saddle should fit him well.
He is registered as a 3/4 Arabian, but in reality he is 55/64 Arabian (AHA,IAHA,AHRA), 1/8 Spanish Mustang (SMR), and 1/64 Quarter Horse (AQHA). We would prefer a good home for him.
