Offering my 9-year-old miniature gelding for sale. Benny stands about 36 inches tall (9hh) & is a chestnut & white paint. His mane & tail are 2-tone & he has 2 blue eyes. He's a flashy head-turner & I always get lots of compliments on him. He stands tied well, loads & hauls like a dream, and comes right up to you in the pasture. When I got him (in 2010) he was broke to drive a cart single or double but I don't have one so he hasn't done it since.... (read more) I'm sure you would easily retrain him to do that & he has a flowing gaited trot so he'd look awesome. He is used to being handled, has nice hooves, & I've never had any health problems with him. He's the type that likes to follow you around like a dog, which is very adorable.
Benny likes learning & would make a good trick pony, cart pony, 4H project for a kid, companion for your horses, or cute little pet to take to parades. I love this horse so much & hate to see him go but he deserves a home where he can be the star instead of on the backburner.
The only bad thing about him (if you consider it a bad thing) is that he is not registered. I'm sure he probably is registered, but I never got any papers off of his previous owner & I have no way of getting ahold of her. You can still show him in local shows without papers, but if you are looking for a registered mini, Benny isn't your guy.
I do not want to see him go to a home that has never had horses. Some people think mini's are like dogs, but they are still horses (need their hooves trimmed, wormer, etc) so a home that is horse-savvy is a must! He has never been foundered, but I don't keep him turned out 24/7 during the summertime. I'd ideally like to see him go to a home that has had minis before, but this isn't necessary if you are a responsible horse owner.
I have videos of him if you're interested.
Asking price $500
