Humphrey is a smart 8 year old skewbald gelding standing at 15.1hh. He came into RSPCA care after he had been abandoned in a field and was emaciated and neglected. He was gelded last year as a 7 year old, and as such is looking for a confident and very experienced owner who is familiar with handling stallion type behaviours. He also needs very careful and specific social mixing, and will need to live within a stable group of companion geldings and is therefore not suited to a livery yard type environment. He has been regularly handled at the centre and is used to being caught, lead, stabled, tied-up, groomed and having his feet picked out. He is happy to be stabled for short periods of time but is most settled living out year round and is used to wearing a rug in winter. He can nip at his handler sometimes when being lead and often pulls faces when eating. Due to his history of starvation he is likely to be protective around food. He is looking for a very experienced owner to give him plenty of time to settle into a new environment with companions, before potentially bringing him on as a ridden horse for the future. This stunning boy has lots of potential and will flourish in the right home. He will make a wonderful project for a calm, confident and experienced owner. Humphrey is up to date with worming, foot trimming, dental checks and vacinations. He has a passport and microchip and his adoption fee is £300.
