Moo is a true easy gentleman. He is good to handle by the smallest of children. My non horsey nervous hubby will hold and lead him. He is easy to catch and i have had no problems when worming, clipping, bathing with a hose, dentist, vet and loading in a lorry or trailer alone and in company. Moo is turned out with mares. Moo has lovely markings (piebald) and i am sure he would still love to do some in hand local low key showing. ( he doesnt look lame in walk, trot or canter when in the field)

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Moo would love company and i really dont want home where he will to be alone. I am willing to explore a mutual loan swap for a ridden horse 14.2 plus as im sure some one has something that they no longer have time to ride or may have lost their nerve.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Sadly moo vetted lame at his first endurance open ride in 2016 ( only 100 yards from the finish line he stopped for a wee and then walked away lame on his front of side) This lameness was quickly resolved however he never felt right behind. After many investigations he had back surgery and a partial penis amputation. Extensive rehab followed however moo still remains inconstantly sound when ridden particular in trot and canter. Hence my decision to retire him.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

I have spoken with the vets whom feel moo may have a small paralysis around his lumber region which prevents him from working through his hind quarters effectively. This being the case and after 2 years of trying to get him right i feel retirement is the best outcome for him now.

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

At tea time Moo prefers to be left alone and not fussed. He will pull a grumpy face. After hes had his after dinner snooze hes a happy boy again. Moo is happy to be left in the field alone for a short while and doesn't get stressed. If walking out in traffic he doesnt pull and is really good in traffic. I have ridden my old horse and led him out with us before and he was perfect. He is currently not shod however if intending to walk him in hand on roads front shoes would help prevent him getting foot sore

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

No ridden work

Moo is currently looking a little bit over weight so restricted grazing would be helpful. There has been no evidence of laminitis.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, but only in winter

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?
