South Fleet ("Captain") is a 5 year old, bay gelding that arrived at our farm in early February. He is a BIG boy. Â He is about 16.1 and he is a big-bodied horse that feels much larger and will likely take up a good bit of leg.
Captain raced 22 times in 3 years and earned $79,799. Â Our vet evaluation on 2/12/13 showed a sound horse who flexed very well, and our vet is pretty confident he could go on to any discipline successfully.
So far, Captain has proven to be a calm, well-mannered, affectionate horse. Â He has lived with both mares and geldings at our farm and is fairly low on the totem pole. Very quiet, this horse is very easy to work with. His first time under saddle at our farm he was as calm as a seasoned trail horse. Â He has no vices and is being started into work now.
