Mick was rescued in April 2015 as a young stud colt. He was owned by a horse dealer who sells horses for slaughter. Mick was kept in a huge field with poor pasture and a creek for water. He had never been handled by humans and didn’t know what grain or hay were. His hooves had never been trimmed and were starting to curl upwards. He was under-nourished for his age and sick with a respiratory illness.
Over time, Mick regained his health and soon went through a growth spurt. Once halter trained, he was gelded. He has a kind and willing personality.
Mick now has solid ground manners and can be haltered, led, groomed, trailer loaded and stands for vet or farrier. He has been started under saddle in 2017 and was not phased by anything asked of him. This is a super nice little gelding for an experienced owner to put more under saddle time on him. Mick could easily make a nice trail riding partner for a small adult.
