Okay. So I have a 17.3h percheron mix he is just about 6 years old now!. He is a lover boy! We rescued him at 4 months old from the kill pen. He was my first horse and probly not the best choice for people who knew NOTHING about horses, and I was only 11.He is halter broke OK with his feet and that's about it. He was at a trainer for about 6 weeks. He was ridden a few times and was hooked too a sleigh and pulled us around. He bucked once and threw the guy off but was good for me,my mom and my sister. Their is a few choosen people he dislikes. But loves most people! He scares most people because he is so big and is pushy! He has never tried too kick,bite or chase me.
I have him borderd at a friends house as we don't have room for a big boy like him. We are trying too buy the 4.5 acers behind us. So if that happens he will be coming home!
So..... 1. He is a Spooky boy, I bet his own shadow would make him jump! What can I do too help him with that?
2. He HAS too be with another horse. They tried too stall him, but within 15 seconds he had the stall door ripped off and was back with the other horse! How do we help him with his fear of being alone? I can't even take him out of the fence and he goes nuts trying too get back with her.
I would love for him too be a trail horse someday.
He really is a sweet boy and I love him very much. I have been told by everyone so far I need too sell him. I wont give up on him tho! I am hoping too have close too 1,000 to send him too a trainer for 2 months ,by mid-summer.
He really is my lover boy!!
Here is a video of him. He was around 16.3h in the video. This was sept.2010
