||Six years old|
||New Jersey, USA|
( known as boo) is my six-year-old Thoroughbred. He is about
15.3 hh and is bay with two hind socks and a very small sock on his front
right leg. He loves it when he gets baths and he loves to go for long
rides around the property. His favorite treats are peppermints, carrots
and peaches, and he loves to be scratched behind the ears. I ride him
English and he is now being trained how to jump. He has great gaits and
loves to go fast! He will eat just about everything except celery and bananas.
I am hoping to show him this coming year in 4-H and I think he will make a
great project. He is definitely not spooky or flighty, so I think he will
be a great show mount.
Before I bought him he was at a Thoroughbred rescue. His previous owner
rescued him right off the track. He has been off the track about a year
now and he has made a great addition to my family and is very friendly
(when you have food!!).
I love him so much and he knows it. He nickers to me every time I go out
back to see him. He also loves attention... I love to just sit in his
stall and talk to him while he eats his hay. I ride him almost every day
with a couple days off in between. He has really smooth gaits for a
thoroughbred. Recently we have been working on flying lead changes and he
is doing fantastic.
Boo gets a little nervous when there are too many people around him, but
he never really acts up. Sometimes he will get pushy about getting treats,
but I love him anyway!
