    Very sad sale! Flea bitten grey, 14hh gelding, 16 years old, much loved family pony!

    Smudge has done a bit of everything and is a very safe genuine type who is lots of fun! Went to pony club camp, competed at unaffiliated dressage and mini show jumping and a bit of showing. Had a go at everything with pony club including mounted games. Lots of happy hacking.
    Shows some lovely paces and a nice outline at times.
    Has hunted and done fun rides with previous owner and has done one fun ride with me.
    Quiet and safe hack and good in traffic. Happy to walk whilst others canter off. Good to handle in all ways and used to being handled and pampered by children. Seems to know who's riding and looks after complete beginners brilliantly. Great on lead rein.
    Good to load and stands quietly next to box or trailer. Easy to catch and doesn't mind being left alone or leaving the yard alone. Barefoot and well behaved for trimmer, been shod and clipped by previous owner.
    Lived out 24/7 with us and moved yards easily, happy stabled overnight now.
    Doesn't trash rugs or fences.
    All health checks up to date, Irish passport, no vices open to vetting.
    Now the downside!
    This lovely pony is reported to have had laminitis before we had him but we have managed his grazing and he has never had a problem when we've had him.
    This summer he has developed asthma during the heatwave, which we managed with dilatoril/ventapulmin - we have inhalers for him but haven't used them. He completed pony club camp without them and is now completely better.
    His only other issue is that he isn't keen on jumping.
    We've decided to sell as my daughter is keen to compete in showjumping and he isn't!
    He has taken my daughter from totally nervous to super confident!
    The right home is more important than price, this fabulous pony deserves a fabulous home (and needs someone who can manage the asthma if it comes back next summer!)
    You can see how much fun we've had with him on his YouTube channel - 'Nell Smudge'
