Misty surprise. 2006 ottb. 15.2 hands, nice long leg, wouldn't think he is only 15.2 hands. Birthday is in March, 11 years old. Papers not in hand, were lost before I owned him. Tattoo is very readable. Sound, no lameness issues! Barefoot, has been shoed in passed and was perfectly fine, has been barefoot for 2 years and is perfectly fine. Has never had any problems with being barefoot. But is sensitive to rocks, like most horses so if rode on rocks or hard ground I would recommend shoes.
Misty has basic dressage training and jumping training. He loves both jobs. He has been trail rode extensively. And has done cross country. And he LOVES trails and cross country. He is a great boy in the ring or out the ring. He has never refuses or double looked a jump. Has always been very honest and willing towards everything. He likes gymnastics and different exercises. He is very independent, in field, on trails, or just alone. He gets along with anyone in fields. He stays by himself mostly in the fields. He is on the low end of the pole. He doesn't need much to stay fit, only eats about 40 bales of hay in winter. He would rather go find grass all day then eat hay. He gets normal safe choice performance feed. He weighs about 1000 pounds. He is a easy keeper, stays plump on grass alone. He is up to date on everything, shots and coggins and teeth. Vet was out in may. Vet can be referred to contact if any questions. Trailers fine, stands fine for vet/farrier. Farrier always is out every 6 weeks. He loves carrots!!
The one thing I love about this boy is he listens to well to his rider. If out on trail and galloping, he will come back to you in a heart beat. Even if other horses are still galloping away. He can be the leader or follower. He is a brave soul on the trails.
I do have him on a supplement through smartpak, for nervousness. He doesn't need it as when I bought him he did not have it. I think it has just taken the edge off for him. Very inexpensive supplement. He is also on electrolytes supplement.
Advanced beginner and up could ride him, I'd recommend a trainer to help if beginner. He has never bucked or rears or been mean ever. He likes to take care of his rider. He is the same horse from one day to a month later. You can just get on and ride and he will not throw any fit.
He needs a refresher since he has not been in consistent work. As I'm nursing student and don't have time for him. But after 2 weeks of riding he will be back to a great loose bending horse.
