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+.
