Paddy’s the most loving, affectionate horse I’ve ever known. He adores people and is such a soppy, gentle boy. Before I rescued him he’d had a tough life, being treated quite roughly and never being a true family ‘pet’. He’s easy to do in all ways; he stands nicely for the farrier, vet and will let you do almost anything to him. He’d be the most wonderful companion to any horse or a super role-model for a yearling etc.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Paddy will only go to a kind, loving home where I felt I could 100% guarantee he would be very well cared for and returned to me if circumstances were to change. He doesn’t necessarily require a a stable although some form of field shelter would be needed. He must only go to a home where he can be in the same field with another horse. As long as there’s hay for him in winter and a good winter turnout rug, he’s quite happy. He will also require a fly sheet in summer.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Paddy has cataracts in both eyes. His vision is estimated to be around 40% but he manages quite happily and this doesn’t pose any issue or concerns. He also had a locking stifle but this doesn’t affect him in the field, only when walking up hill.

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Paddy had an allergic reaction to something the vet thought was likely to be a seed dropped froM a bird or in bird poo. This has only happened once in four years and was considered bad luck rather than anything that’s likely to crop up again.

Details of the veterinary practice this horse is registered with

Liphook Equine Hospital | ‭+44 1428 723594‬ | Forest Mere Liphook GU30 7JG England | liphookequinehospital.co.uk | liphookequinehospital.co.uk

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

Paddy has no vices or behavioural issues. He may need sedation to have his teeth filed as this frightens him.

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

Paddy is sadly no longer in work. He does, however, enjoy join-up and would love to get out once in a while for an in-hand stroll.

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

Good doer. As he’s a TB weight gain has never been a concern. He may need a special weight-gain mix for his winter feed though, as he’s more likely to drop weight.

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

No he can live out all year round

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

No
