Bear is a genuine horse. Before he went lame he was a reliable hacking horse, very relaxed and good in traffic (not fazed by lorries, busses, cars). He is easy to keep, good with other horses. At the moment he is only a companion horse, but there is a good chance that he can be ridden in the future.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Overall healthy apart from arthritis in right hock. He had steroid injection in October 2018 and then in April 2019 a bone fusion operation (arthrodesis) at Oakham Hospital. After op he was an bute until July, but since then no treatment. He is still lame in trot. Insurance for his leg is exempt.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

According to surgeon from Oakham hospital Bear could recover full and be sound. Healing process is advised between 4/5 to 12 months (it's now 7 months ago). But I can't give guarantee. As a companion horse he is field sound.
