NJ - 6 yo TB gelding for sale
 
Digger is steadily coming along in training and likes to have something to do.

If we're going to get old school terms going - he's a "blood bay" with a star, LH pastern, RH spots on coronet. Clean, sound legs, front shoes only - can go barefoot if desired. Good ground manners - loves to be fed cookies and carrots, enjoys being touched and beautified, and really enjoys his massages! He gets a natural shine to his coat, especially during warmer weather. Cross ties, lunges, clips, bathes, my farrier and vet love him! W/T/C, can do auto lead changes, started over small fences. Digger really seems interested in the concept of jumping. Hacks out alone or in a group. UTD on shots, negative Coggins, dental, worming, and on a regular shoeing schedule.

Digger is bred back to big racing bloodlines. He's by Allen's Prospect, one of the leading stakes sires today - with Smile, Mr. Prospecter, Gold Digger, Native Dancer, Bold Ruler, Man O War, War Admiral, Nashua, to name a few... Not that it matters because he's a gelding - but it's interesting to know.

Digger does need work on trailering, he loads and hauls but hasn't learned to 'enjoy the scenery" yet. He can be a little hot sometimes, so he's not for a beginner rider! Needs retraining into your direction. Nervous in new places but he's getting better. Haven't quite figured out the magical solution to make him fat yet - he's on 14% sweet, beet pulp and just started Fat Cat.

This horse likes having a person all to himself! He really seems to buddy up with his person and likes a confident rider that he can trust. Sweet, sweet guy and full of personality!

You have to see him to appreciate him and to see if he's a good match for you.

Only looking to sell to find a prospect for upper level eventing.... Digger's going to take more time than I want to event at prelim+.

Please e-mail at laceywilliams@comcast.net with any questions or call 609-420-9185 to arrange an appointment to see him.

Priced at $2200.

Located in Elmer, NJ at Transitions Farm.

Digger went to his first dressage show and was very well behaved, scoring a 67% at walk/trot. For being his first show, I couldn't have been more pleased.

Liked being braided and fussed over, stood like a gentleman, and behaved very nicely and when put to work, he rode nice.

The judge really liked this horse.

Come see him today and make an offer.

Wow. he is wonderful! I sure wish I could buy him!

JustDressageIt 06-01-2008 01:13 PM

How tall is he? Was he ever raced?

Painted1 06-01-2008 02:24 PM

He's 15.3 hh. He was raced, I got him off the track. He was too slow and only ran in a few races. He has clean legs and is sound. Digger has had plenty fo time to quiet down, he's been OTT since Aug. 07.
