Hi everyone my name is Diesel (Indi’s older brother we come as a pair) I am 6 years old, 15.2 cob, verrrry good looking, strong build, like’s long walks, eating the finest grass hay feed well anything will do, sleeping well to keep looking this good takes its time. I am well-mannered but my mum says I do need a bit of motivation sometimes, I love bum scratcher (oh yes) and lots of hugs and if I spot grass out of the corner of my eye my body is drawn to it. I can also jump over little.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Diesel brother Indi has had laminitis so in prevention we need them to be exercised regularly and both me and my husband find it difficult with work commitments

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Diesel stifle can lock now and again but more exercise he does the better it is. This has been since he was a foal but no surgery has been needed.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Churchfield vets | 01226 733 333 | 1 Church Street, Penistone, S36 6AR | info@churchfieldvets.co.uk | http://churchfieldvets.co.uk/

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Diesel can be a bit nervous around buses, tractors and motor bikes due to a bad experience on the road drivers error :(

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

Diesel has never been out without his brother Indi so they have confidence with each other hence we have to have 2 sharers who are willing to ride together.

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

Diesel does like his food, advised not to carry treats in your pocket because he will take the pocket as well :) Diesel has had novice riders have lessons on him, but if he thinks he can get away without exercising he will.

Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury

Explanation whether this horse is simply a good doer or whether he is prone to laminitis

  • you will be allowed to ride the horse 3 days a week
  • during summer and winter complete this amount of work/duties: We are looking for 2 sharers for 2 brothers who we would like to be ridden together, In the winter the days the sharer rides Diesel would be expected to muck him out, and in summer purely for exercise, Diesel has never been exercised without his brother Indi, so 2 sharers who are looking for horses to ride these would be ideal.
