**ANDREW WILSON & CO ONLINE AUCTION JANUARY 14th-15th**
LOT NUMBER: 135
HEIGHT (Approx) 15.3h
DESCRIPTION (as provided by vendor)
I purchased this guy through the auctions early December but the description was inappropriate and he is far too much horse for us. He is a 6 year old unregistered (unbranded) AHS, approx 15.3hh. According to his original ad and previous vendor, he has done trail riding, stock work, sale yards, mustering and cross country. I did see multiple videos of him jumping logs with beautiful form and ease. He was advertised as a potential showjumper for a confident teen and whilst I have no doubt he would make a lovely jumper, he is way too much for my 13 year old. He did walk straight onto the float and travel for 6 hours beautifully, no sign of stiffness or lameness afterward.
Unfortunately for us, Roy has had a hard life and has been abused, with resulting trust issues. I have been spending time with him (extremely limited due to holiday period guests and work) and he will eat happily from a hand-held bucket. Once caught (quite easily slipped a rope over his head whilst eating), we have been able to pat him all over, lead him around and get a buzz-eye flyveil on with ease. I have lunged him extensively and he has show to be a very smart horse with great form, no lameness. I can see MASSIVE potential for this young boy but simply don't have the knowhow myself. Whilst I desperately wanted to keep him and give him and show him what life can be about, I have accepted that he would be best at a more experienced home, with a family to love him and take him on to break through his nervousness and bring out the unleashed potential within.
Through everything we have done with him, he has shown no malice whatsoever, never showing any indication of kicking, lunging at as, biting or rearing, even when he was feeling a lot of pressure. He gets along with all other horses in the paddock and has shown a very sweet nature.
Please only bid on this boy if you are experienced horse owners!!!!!!
