I bred Oliver but he is wasted and not being used much because I lack time, he is very talented loves to jump & dressage, hacks alone or in company, has rounded up sheep/cattle. Oliver is very beautiful and has been shown, before he scarred his leg jumping a bank on his own. He presently lives out on his own with a field shelter but likes company. He loves a job and can learn quickly if you provide payment in carrots. He is a real character but not for a novice.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Oliver has Sweet Itch which I manage with Shires sweet itch rugs and an electric fence, he retires to his large field shelter at appropriate times of the day to avoid flies/midges. He also has a crack on his front hoof, which he has had since two years old when he had a foot abscess. His hooves are not his best feature and I feed biotin plus and oil to help hoof growth. He had a hernia repaired when he was six month's old, and scarred his leg jumping a bank several years ago. None has caused him any problem

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Stapled cut in his jaw, injured in the field.

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

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

I lent him to an equestrian college five years ago. Although he was very popular because he liked the work, he did not get enough time outside to relax, he then got sour in the stable and unfortunately bit several students. I took him back back three years ago and he has never bitten any one since but still pulls faces at dinner time. He is fine once he is eating and is happy to have his feet picked, mane pulled, vaccinations given, loves being groomed, good with farrier, being clipped etc.
