He is probably going to end up gelded purely based on the fact that he is grade and I have know knowledge of his linage other then some QH. He is obviously a stud when the mares are around but as soon as a human walks up he is on his best behavior. You honestly wouldnt know he is a stud with looking he is so laid back. He is already sort of adopted a yearling gelding who is penned up next to him and has never been aggressive towards any of the other horses. So Im not really worried about gelding him for any behavioral reasons.
As for trimming that was the first day I got him and as far as I can tell he hadnt even been haltered before that. He does already pick up his front feet for me but he has some issues with his back. He doesnt lean and he isnt mean about it but he does try to strike out a little with his back feet. He wouldnt even take food from my hands when I got him but now he will take anything if he thinks it will taste good!
I am hoping he will be a rodeo or ranch horse mostly for poles and since I work as a pickup rider sometimes. Although I'm pretty sure he is going to be a trail horse. I am hoping that he gets taller. I would like to see him finish around 15h if I am going to keep him. We are guessing he is about a year and a half or so but he wont let us look at his teeth very long as he is still pretty head shy, especially with his mouth. He already looks 10 times better and he is already starting to relax and trust people more hopefully I will be able to go out there soon and get some work on him.
