He has a lovely kind nature and is very easy to do on the ground. He is happy to be stabled 24/7 with other horses coming and going and doesn't fret. Similarly in the field he will stay on his own or happily with either mares and geldings. He is not dominant. He has never threatened at all on the ground, doesn't pull, barge or anything nasty.
He wants affection, just not the ridden type!

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    He would suit anyone really but seems more comfortable with women rather than men. I suspect this is more to do with being calm and quiet around him though.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Milo is for companion only. He should not be ridden as he is not safe to ride. He came to me for assessment of this last September. I had to re-back him slowly and he was super on the ground. I then discovered that his mouth was very ulcerated as his teeth had never been sorted. Sorting his teeth helped, however, he will suddenly explode by rearing vertically and broncing. This is not due to any physical problem but seems to be a learned trait which is not going to be unlearnt without injury to jockey

None

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

No

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

Criollo

The Criollo is the native horse of Uruguay (1910), Argentina (1918), Brazil (1932) and Paraguay. It may have the best endurance of any horse breed in the world next to the Arabian. In fact, due to the criollo's low basal metabolism, it may be a better long-distance horse than the Arabian in prolonged races over a week in duration with no supplemental feed. The breed, known for its hardiness and stamina, is most popular in its home countries.

The word criollo originally referred to human and animals of pure-bred Spanish ancestry that were born in the Americas, or, in Portuguese crioulo, to animals or slaves born in the Americas. In time, the meaning of the word would simply come to refer to native breeds of the Americas.

Breed Characteristics:

The criollo is a hardy horse with a brawny and strong body with broad chest and well-sprung ribs. They have sloping strong shoulders with muscular necks, short and strong legs with good bone structure and resistant joints, low-set hocks and sound hard feet. The medium to large size long-muzzled head has a straight or slightly convex profile with wide-set eyes. The croup is sloping, the haunches well-muscled, and the back, short with a strong loin.

The criollo is tractable, intelligent, willing and sensible. Criollo horses average 14.3 hands high, being the maximum height for stallions and geldings of 14 to 15 hands high. The difference between the maximum and minimum height for mares is approximately 2 cm (one inch). The line-backed dun is the most popular color, but the breed may also come in bay, brown, black,  chestnut , grullo, buckskin, palomino, blue or strawberry roan, gray and overo colors.

The breed is famous for their endurance capabilities and ability to live in harsh conditions, as their homeland has both extreme heat and cold weather. They are frugal eaters, thriving on little grass. They have good resistance to disease and are long-lived horses.
