About 2 years ago, a little colt was born at our barn. His mother was the most beautiful dun quarter horse (super perfect and super sweet and only 14.3 or 15 hands) and his sire was a Grade A Welsh Pony. We were hoping for a little jumping pony and he is definitely the right size, but poor little Bam Bam was born with a club foot.
The vet and the farrier tried to correct it, but nothing worked. Suprisingly he's a very good mover and super athletic, but when he runs himself to hard (in the round pen or field), he goes lame for a few days.
He has perfect ground manners, takes the saddle and bit easily, and learns faster than any baby around.
Does anyone know a job for him?
We know he probably can't jump or anything, but he wants so bad to be useful. He's about 12 hands, maybe smaller, but still growing. He is gelded. He clips, loads, and bathes.
