This 1990, 15hh, black bay, registered, Morgan stallion is looking for a new home, with experience in handling Morgans and stallions. In December 2013, the present owner came upon the stallion in the Champlain Islands of Vermont. He was the victim of a broken marriage, cold, and had nowhere to go. This family in Jericho had a stall and took him home. The 15 yr old daughter has been his main handler, and he has not done a thing wrong with her, but he has been unpredictable with the father, ie biting. This behavior occurred because the family, unknowingly, handfed him treats. They stopped when he became mouthy. The family needs to find a better spot for him, where he will be cared for by knowledgeable horse people. Spirit has amazing bloodlines ( #119819) including Saddleback, Waseekas in Command, Waseekas Nocturne,Mad River Sailor, Upwey Ben Quietude, Upwey Ben Don, Upwey King Benn,Lippitt Moro Ash, Flyhawk, some Windcrest breeding, and other classic Lippitt breeding. He is retired from showing saddleseat and driving. He clips, bathes, trailers, and goes barefoot with no problems. The 15 yr old daughter has been riding him and he is a wonderful ride. He is calm, going by other farms. His ground manners are impeccable. He loves an indoor outdoor situation, respects the fence, and is an easy keeper. As an older horse, he can get stiff, but for the most part stays pretty sound. Contact Diane at [email protected] for more information or call 802-356-2700. This horse is located in Jericho Vt., and will be free to right situation.
