Santana is a 19 year old Shire that is now being offered for sale. He is a very broad 16.1H, black with four white socks and a star w/connected stripe. He does best when handled regularly (at least once a week) and he needs an experienced draft home. He has a recent negative Coggins and is UTD on vaccinations, worming and teeth floating. His feet will be getting trimmed again soon (no stocks needed).
He is pasture boarded 24/7 with a run-in shed and does share the pasture with other horses.... (read more) He is normally a big teddy bear but does have his moments just like most other horses. Under saddle he is on the lazy side and will not run off but can be a little stubborn at times. He stands quietly to be groomed and tacked up. He will tolerate being stalled for a few hours, such as for vet or farrier appointments, and he does cross tie. Although he is not perfect about picking up his feet, he is pretty darn good for a big boy who has not been handled much the past year. He is currently boarded in Leola PA.
