****THROUGH NO FAULT OF HIS OWN, MAC IS AGAIN AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION****

After much "waffling" for about a year, I decided to offer my registered Saddlebred gelding for adoption. Mac stands just shy of 16.3H and is 8 yrs old. I bought him with my own funds from Camelot Auction House in Sept 2009 with the intention of working with him for awhile then adopting him out. However, he is a friendly laid-back goofball that won my heart quickly so I thought he might be that western show horse I've been wanting for a long time. He was announced at the auction as broke to ride and drive but I have never had him hitched. His training got put "on a back burner" a lot the first couple of years. Now that he has been worked again, I am seeing a difference in his way of going that indicates his primary niche to be english (hunt seat or dressage) instead of western. He has a long stride, uses his hindquarters well and has motion in his extended trot. I think he would also enjoy trail riding. His height and long stride are a little intimidating for me because of my disabilities and although he enjoys just being a "pet," it is not the best thing for his brain now that he has physically matured. He has a current negative Coggins, plus he is kept current on worming and hoof trims. It will not be easy to let him go, but I would love to see him excel with someone who is a better match for him. An adoption contract and fee are required. *The adoption fee includes the cost to transfer his registration.*

UPDATE 6/15/13: Mac is exhibiting a particular liking for crossing his feet and is actually doing half passes and side passes without training in that area.

UPDATE 11/4/13: Mac was tested to see if he would jump at all. He did an awesome job over a 2" rail. He never had any other training for jumping.

THIS TALL HANDSOME GELDING WILL KEEP YOU CHUCKLING WITH HIS GOOFY ANTICS BUT HE HAS A LOT OF HEART AND WANTS TO PLEASE.
