Horses for Loan£ 114 yrs 1 mthColoured
full loaning my 13.2 gelding through no fault of his own.. bought him September last year for the kids. unfortunately they lost interest and he in now just left in the stable or out in the field.
when we bought him he was practically a dope on rope. but we realised his legs were very swollen. we had the vet out to him and it's due to his lymphatic system. and years of neglect.. so he has no feather as its extremely hard to manage his condition with it on.. we have been shaving his legs and applying creams hes had anti-biotics and bute. hes currently receiving a feed called clivers and marigold and this seems to be really making him feel comfortable and hes finally a little more quicker and flexible on his feet.. i mention this as he will more than likely suffer problems with his legs in the future and will need to be on the special lymphatic diet feed .. but if kept ontop of he should thrive.
due to the soreness of his legs prior to treatment he was backing up kicking and bucking.. we havnt had a rider on him since as we really wanted to get his legs sorted out. and unfortunately I'm too big to ride him myself. apart from his leg issues and his riding discomfort he is such a lovely boy.. but I feel due to his recent issues he needs a confident rider. and some one that has time and patience to put into my boy and help him to get his legs better..
riding and or lunging is essential as this also helps to keep the fluid out of his legs.
I really do love this horse that is why hes up for full loan to stay on current yard so I can keep and eye on him but should the perfect person be suited to him I would consider a sale
*note we were told but previous owners he was 6 yrs old but the dentist put him at 14*
hes good with farrier and dentist
thankyou for looking at my boy ...Read full description
