Bilbo is an absolute darling of a horse who everyone falls in love with. He's got a very caring temperament and thrives on a one-on-one relationship. He's an excellent companion - he has shared with foals he is so gentle. He will stand all day to be groomed. He survives on a blade of grass and only needs very small supplementary feeds in winter in addition to hay. He can live out in summer but should be stabled in winter. He can be stabled all year round. He is barefoot and has no ground vices.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I want Bilbo to go to a home where he can be taken care of and spoiled each day. He was previously in difficult homes and was mistreated so he deserves a good, caring, loving home. I want him to go to a companion-only home - I have ridden him in the past but he will bolt with no notice and is not safe to ride.
