Zebedee is very friendly and has a sweet disposition. He is sweet because he has been well loved and treated with kindness, and I am protective of his happiness and comfort. I have had Zeb for over 10 years. His gaits are walk, flat walk, his version of a saddle rack & canter. He can get pacey sometimes, but I always correct him. He is not fast, just an easy going, laid back trail horse. He can be a tad barn sour, so he would take advantage of a beginner. He wouldn't run, but he would head home. He should have someone who is at least an intermediate. I would prefer someone who has had horses a long time. He is good for clipping, bathing, trailering & hoof trimming (I do myself once a month with angle grinder.) The only reason I am considering finding him a new home is because - he eats manure. He is food motivated and thinks he has to be eating all the time. Here it is only a dry lot, no grass pasture at all. For his sake - he would be happier where he had 24/7 pasture. Zeb is an easy keeper, he would get too fat on "free choice" hay feeding. Been there done that. I wouldn't be considering selling him - as I could do that. He would eat non-stop on free choice. Pasture is the only hope. He will do anything for a treat. He is easy to train because of that - using treats he could learn tricks. He can bow - for a carrot. I will only consider a home that has grass pasture. Hopefully you will be a truly kind and loving horse person.
I do not have a video. I have no one to film me riding him. Sorry.
No "horse traders" please.
My wish is that a potential buyer would live in N. Nevada or another state that has grass pasture. I've had many inquiries from people who live in Las Vegas. Pahrump and Las Vegas are 60 miles apart. If such a thing exists in Vegas please LMK. To my knowledge there is no grass pasture in S. Nev. It is all dry lot. One may have good intentions to grow a pasture on a couple of acres, but I have yet to see it happen. By "pasture" I mean grassy pasture, a dry lot is not a pasture. Like 20, 40+ acres of free growing grass, maybe there would also be some trees, weeds, brush. (Not talking about lush, sown, all knee high grass, that would cause obesity, & laminitis). As stated above, I am doing this for Zeb, not me. If he were normal and didn't eat manure, this ad wouldn't exist. If he is kept on yet another dry lot, he would eat manure there too. If you would like me to explain why that is a bad thing, just email me. If he is out on a good size grassy pasture he wouldn't eat manure. That is what Zeb wants.
