This is Paddy, is only 11 years old KWPN and we have had him for two years. My daughter competed him at newcomers and was amazing. Due to his size and jumping much bigger heights before we got him it’s obviously put a lot of strain on him. The vet viewed him and basically said that he could no longer do his job due to a back injury and we have been gutted . They suggested that we have him put to sleep if we no longer wanted to keep him. I just can’t do it to him! He is in no pain and they told us he would be fine as a field ornament, which is perfect if I only had the time to give him. He is great with the farrier, having his teeth done and being groomed. He doesn’t mind being on his own if someone’s needs a companion for theirs .He was always great to load and stand on the box for hours on end with no fuss and will come to the gate when you call him. He is happy to live out or to be stables, he really is very easy .
He has a very kind temperament. Does snort if unsure but has never been silly , with a reassuring voice he will do practically anything for you . Due to his back he cannot be ridden. He has a full wardrobe of rugs which will go with him.
Arthritis in his back
Looking for someone that can just give him a happy life being pampered and well looked after.
