DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
DOB 19/08/20, 16 months old. Mature around 15.1/ 15.2 h based on leg measurements. ATM she is butt high, 14.2 h at the rump and 14 h at the wither. If her rump widens to half the size of her Dams she should have plenty of hindquarter power. Bubbles is very in your pocket, loves to drape herself over people and other horses which isn’t always appreciated. Its hard to get away from her even to video her. Can pat all over, legs belly ears, stands to be haltered & rugged, leads, loads onto a float. Comes when she sees you. No kick or bite.Has the brains and attitude to make a lovely Pony Club PC, ARC or station horse. Shes jumped 1.25m here with ease. Bubbles has a high IQ & is super inquisitive. Nothing seems to worry her, first time with a saddle on in the video and she didn’t seem to notice. She gets into everything eg the outdoor laundry, the container, climbs into the float via the personal access door. Unfazed by small spaces, can walk up and reverse down stairs to the house, walks over wooden bridges and tarps, can do a 4 way squeeze with ease. Likes to use her body to block, so might be good with cattle in the future.Bubbles has been stabled several times here with her dam in bad weather and had no issues. She is used to high wind as she is paddocked on the crest of a hill. Paddocked on a highway so used to traffic and headlights. Used to chainsaws / burning off / flapping clothes etc. She has been floated with her dam on a straight load and an interstate, has not floated alone. Hasn’t been tied except when floated, as she likes to hang around and 'help'. She’s been paddocked with mini to Clydie. Bubbles has only been trimmed on the front once. Can pick up her hooves but she hasn’t learnt to hold them up yet. She is wormed and up to date with immunisation, doesn’t need a 2 in 1 booster for 12 months. She has never had a sick day, appears to be in excellent health. Has a small 2cm scar on offside cannon (see pic). Bubbles fed off her dam until 13 months old. Shes had a hard feed per day for the last 7 months. She’s had excellent nutrition, no nasty surprises down the track.Bubbles is an Appy x and has Appy white eye sclera, mottled skin on face, udder & stripy hooves. She is roan. She is a chocolate colour and looks to be buckskin (has yellow ear hair). She has some feather. Roan and Appaloosa are dominant genes which she could throw to her foals in the future. From what I have read, horses with 1 appy gene (1 Appy parent) dont get the eye problems that the Appy purebreds are susceptible to.Recommend buyer is an experienced horse person, due to her young age and high IQ. Looking for a loving home NOT a person that buys a horse and then sells it a few months later because “it doesn’t fit in / suit”. If you can’t offer Bubbles a stable home please don’t bid.
Please note she is NOT broken in
