Mickey - full profile

Introduction

When Mickey arrived at Penny Farm in January 2017, he was entire. He was gelded in February 2017 and we began his rehabilitation on the ground with a view to backing him for ridden work. Unfortunately, Mickey's conformation makes it difficult for him to undertake ridden activities comfortably. In addition, he tends to pace and does not trot well so he is suitable as a companion only. Mickey will take time to settle in his new home and routine will be essential. Because he was castrated late in life, he must only be turned out with geldings and it is important to note that he cannot be left alone in the field as he will become easily stressed. In the field he is quite a dominant character, but he loves his friends and playing in the field. Mickey is very good to handle and groom and is good for the vet and the farrier. We think that he will thrive at a quiet yard with plenty of one-to-one time with his handler as he loves attention. If you can offer Mickey a loving home we would love to hear from you.

Temperament

Mickey is good to handle, but can become stressed.

History

Mickey came into our care along with four other horses who had been rescued from an unsuitable environment. Their field was full of ragwort, they were not provided with adequate food and their feet were very overgrown. The owner was successfully prosecuted.
