I'm a cool calm and collected grey gelding. I arrived at the RSPCA as a 14yo stallion.
I was gelded straight away and have had about 6 months to settle down, which I have done well. My neighbour is a mare and we get along great over the fence, and hang out under the trees together when it's hot. While I haven't been put in a paddock with a mare, I think I could be ok with this once I have had time to settle into a new home. I would be fine in with geldings as I am a lover not a fighter.
My casual and laid back attitude out in the paddock makes me a great choice as a companion as I don't get too stressed out when horses around me are moved or taken away.
I enjoy human company, lots of treats and love. I tie up, I'm very good to catch and lead and also to vaccinate. When I came to the RSPCA I really hated my legs being touched and feet being picked up, but I have learnt that this is important for my care and I am really very good with this now. I'm learning about rugs still, but I enjoy having my fly veil on in Summer.
I have started some basic groundwork, and have responded very well, so I would be happy to continue learning more. I don't think I was ever broken in, and because of my age I may struggle with this so I would prefer a home where I will not become a ridden horse.
I would love to know if you think I look a little like Marty the Zebra from Madagascar? All of my friends think I do so I occasionally get called Marty!
I can't wait to meet you soon!
