Grandpa's Ranger is a four-year-old OTTB. He retired sound from his racing career earlier this summer. He has had ample time off and now has started training for his next career. Grandpa sold at the Colorados Breeders Association Silver Cup 2017 sale as a yearling for $14,000.
Grandpa was one of the easiest horses to transition from his racing career to a small private barn. He is always the first one to meet you at the gate, halters himself, loads and unloads form the trailer with ease.... (read more) He will stand tied all day, including for bathing, blanketing, and tacking up. Overall Grandpa is a very easy horse to have around. He has been ridden english and western, has been ponied and will pony other horses. Knows his leads, will go wherever you ask him and is very light in his mouth. He has been hauled to different arenas for exposure and has been ridden out in the pasture. He is not spooky or reactive. Grandpa has a great floaty trot and knows his leads.
Grandpa has had no injuries or lameness issues. He is up to date on all routine vet care including trims, vaccinations, dental floats, and deworming. Grandpa did have a minor colic episode when turned out in a pasture that had recently been sprayed for weeds.
