SugarRay, just call me Suggs, is a 4yo WARMBLOOD gelding (NOT gaited), currently standing around 14h and still growing. We have not color DNAd him but he exhibits both champagne and cream gene characteristics on a red base. He has amber eyes with freckling typically associated with champagne horses. We believe Suggs is a Gold Cream color. With a big natural floating trot, this young man has unlimited potential as a sport horse!
Suggs was rescued by GAIT, Inc. because the lot advertised him as a TN Walking Horse. When he arrived, his coggins actually read that he was a quarter horse and after watching him move in the field, we decided that he was likely not a TN Walking Horse or a AQHA either. So we had him DNA tested for breed type. He came back as a WARMBLOOD (Hanoverian/Holsteiner)! The warmblood influence is very obvious in his movement. This gelding is one phenomenal natural mover with a huge floating trot and scopey over free jumps. While we do not believe him to be purebred Hanoverian, he certainly has the movement of that kind of breeding. He should excel in Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, Eventing and other performance events where movement is key. Couple that with a very willing and quiet personality and a color that will get you noticed, and this is one incredible find of a horse.
Suggs is beginning under saddle training now, starting on August 6th, so he is being adopted as green broke. His adopter may choose to adopt now and participate with his trainer through the process. Once training is complete, his adoption fee will increase. 30-days of foundation training is included in the current adoption fee.
He trailers, ties, leads well. He has good ground manners, is good for brushing but is a little protective of his back legs. He lunges, has a very healthy appetite, was good for shots and good for the vet. He's UTD on shots, coggins and will be available for adoption. He is currently located in Frederick, MD and his adoption fee is set at $1100. To view his video, click here: youtu.be/wQBYnaPGwQ8
