Marley

 

10154713_10152080153798042_1766096698_nMarley is looking for a forever home with an experienced, confident and sympathetic handler.

He is very green for his age having had minimal education as a youngster.

He can quite happily be caught, tied up and groomed at his current home. He lives in a mixed herd with young and old horses of different sizes. Marley is quite dominant in the field and can be especially defensive around food.

He needs someone to form a bond with him and really get to know him. He has a very lovable and cuddly side to him, he loves being pampered and having his head and ears rubbed.

1011143_557283247641329_1237145497_nHe is now happily letting us groom out all of his feathers and apply hoof oil, but due to past experience with a hoof ascsess he is very uneasy about having his hooves picked up, so this will need regular gentle encouragement.

Marley is a smart horse who does learn easily but can get frustrated if things aren’t explained clearly to him.

To lead, Marley is good once he is in a routine but has been known to spook a little and become strong once in new surroundings, or when something scary appears!

There is no reason why Marley can’t become a good riding horse with time and patience-both of his parents are good riding horses and his mum enjoys show jumping. However we must stress that he is not for a novice, only very knowledgeable horse trainers will be considered to ensure Marley can move forward and lead a happy life.
