Smokey is a grey 14 year old 15hh registered Missouri Foxtrotter gelding who has done it all. This boy is a gorgeous sweetheart with a long thick mane and tail and a white flea-bitten body. He is a seasoned trail horse and is happy in front, back, or middle, though he prefers the back. He loves water, you won’t have any issues crossing creeks on the trail, he would rather take a dip! He was also used as a lesson horse at Earlham College for 3 years where he was a favorite of both the huntseat team and the weekly kids’ lesson.... (read more) He jumped up to 2’6”. He has a bit more whoa than go and is suitable for beginners.
He does have a minor chronic old eye injury that results in cloudiness in his eye. That eye is a bit photo-sensitive but it doesn’t affect him under saddle, he just needs a fly mask more often. He also develops girth galls if precautions are not taken. He does well with a mohair girth and some vaseline.
He is current on his coggins and shots. Has always gone barefoot and never had any issues with lameness. He has wonderful ground manners, stands for the farrier, vet and baths. He loves to go out and will load himself up in the trailer. Has been out with mares and geldings and gets along with everyone well, often falling middle to low in the pecking order. Has been around dogs and goats. Located in southwestern MI, 30min north of South Bend, IN. More pictures and video upon request, but please no tirekickers. Negotiable to the right home. Willing to sell his tack with him.
