    Very sad sale of such a lovely boy. I have had Arnie for just over 12 months and this has been a very hard decision to make. Arnie is a safe and sensible lad. He has got a heart of gold and is ridden in a snaffle. He has bucket falls of manners and the kindest of natures. He never wants to hurt you and is so very genuine and kind. This lad will soon become your best friend.

    I have only ever hacked Arnie and he is happy to go out on his own or in company and will go up front or follow behind. I have never jumped him and even though he is no speed demon I’m sure he would be happy to pop over the odd log or two but he is definitely not built for competing. Arnie loves to go out on a hack and is not a kick along even though he is a steady lad. He is great in traffic and I have never had an issue with him on the roads. He will go past anything and wont bat and eye to the biggest of vehicles. He is an angel to tack up and is always happy to work. He has never napped and will go anywhere. He is excellent with the farrier but will insist on a hay net whilst its being done. The way to this horse’s heart is most definitely through his stomach but because of this he does have to be restricted in the spring and summer months as he will just keep on eating. He has never had laminitis and the only health problem he has would be that he needs his hay soaking as I noticed last winter that he developed a cough. I was not told about this by the previous owner so it may have just been that my hay was dustier than what he was used to.
    I have never boxed Arnie myself but I was there when he was loaded to come to me and he went straight in with no hesitation, no surprise really for this steady lad. Arnie takes most things in his stride.
    Arnie would suit a mother/ daughter share or a loving home after a happy hacker/ all-rounder. He is a steady lad but not a complete plod so not suitable for complete beginners. I’m afraid he will only come with a head collar and one rug as I have borrowed the rest of his tack and am not able to sell it with him. The right 5-star home is of upmost importance and I am in no rush to sell this boy. He deserves to never be sold on again and live the rest of his days with a loving family so please no time wasters or dealers.
