    About

    Wonderful horse offered to good home due to owner's health.

    Auggie is my dream horse. He has a wonderful mind, not spooky or stupid. He can sit in the pasture for 3 weeks and then be saddled up and ridden no problem. There is no buck or rear in this guy. He would never hurt a fly. He is a 16.1/16.2 hand, big bodied gelding with good bone substance and has good feet. He wears front shoes and keeps them on really well. Easy to catch in the pasture. He is an easy keeper for a thoroughbred, one scoop of grain a day, turn out and hay. I love, love this gelding. He is just a wonderful horse. The reason why I am having to part with my dream horse is I have been fighting stage 4 breast cancer for the last 2 years. The cancer is in my bones and I have a huge risk of getting really hurt if I were to ever fall. Next week I am having my right hip replaced, I am 36 years old. My bones are not going to get any stronger, they will just continue weakening. I have decided that it is time to let him go. He came off the track at 7 years old without a blemish on him. They just decided that he was an old man for a race horse, so he retired. He is still learning to go with contact, he is wonderfully forward moving. Nice swinging walk, working trot, we have not done a lot at the canter due to my lack of leg strength. But when he is asked to canter he may be a little quick due to being imbalanced, as soon as you ask to walk he is flat walking on the buckle.
    He is definitely a project horse, as he needs training to go in a direction. He wants to please and do what you want, he just isn't quite sure what it is. Not a kids horse, just due to the work he needs, not due to his temperament or character at all. He will make a wonderful dressage, hunter, or eventing horse. He is smart, willing and honest. You can not go wrong with this guy.
    Please no tire kickers, please don't contact me unless you are actually buying. I have chemotherapy 6 hrs away every 3 weeks. I just don't have the time in my life to waste it on people who aren't serious, not trying to be rude. Anyone wanting to come see him, please be absolutely serious. Bring your trailer with you. I just can't show him over and over again. That being said, I want him to have a wonderful home. Asking 700. Located in Emerald, WI

    Update: Auggie is not a western horse, so no barrel racers, gamers etc. I would love for him to find a home with someone whose will develop him for dressage, hunters, or eventer. I do not want him to go as a lesson horse. I want him to be able to bond with one person. He is located in Emerald, WI
