Here's an eye-catching Grey to get you noticed!

"Winn", B.D. ~ 2005, 17 H.H. Grey Gelding

Winn is your typical gentle giant type, he has excellent ground manners, is personable and willing. Purchased in 2022 as a 17 y.o. Standardbred, he has no visible freeze brand or tattoo, but has all the qualities you would expect from this breed.  Unfortunately, his size is the issue for his current owner who realized her driving equipment was not suitable for his large frame and would prefer a smaller horse.  Although he has been driven frequently since his purchase and will to be "squeezed" into the tack, he would be more suited for someone with the proper equipment.  He has been driven on gravel roads and in fields and has never balked or bolted, has no issues with vehicles or loose dogs and can be left for long periods without issue returning to work.

His former owner was blind and drove him in a pair and stated he was also used for riding, however, his current owner has never used him for that purpose.  Winn is a very amicable fellow, is not dominant in a herd, and would do best with a respectful and gentle handler.  He has never had any health or soundness concerns and is UTD on vaccinations, deworming, and dental exams.

Winn is definitely worth a look and has many productive years to share.  His current owner would not hesitate to keep him if she was able to provide him with a job as he has much more to offer than being a companion or pasture pet.

Located in Alder Flats , AB

This handsome fellow won't last long!

"Artistically", B.D. 2005, 15.3 H.H. Black Gelding

"Art" is a strikingly good looking fellow who is regrettably looking for a new home.  His owners health issues prompted this decision and she is wanting Art to have the opportunity to be productive and loved on as he deserves.

Art raced successfully in Vancouver , B.C. until he was 8 y.o. and transitioned easily into his new role as a pleasure and trail riding horse for his current owner.  He has been driven single and as a pair in years past with no issues and could likely revisit this role if desired.  He is a confident fellow ridden alone or in a group and is quite amicable with children and small pets, even when it comes to sharing his dinner with a cat ( pictured).  He is also a proven and reliable parade mount, having participated in several small town parades as well as the Calgary Stampede parade.  Both he and his current owner were members of the Fort Calgary Wheel and Runner group and participated at Spruce Meadows events on several occasions.  Art has been a worthy trail partner, crossing bridges and most anything along the trail without hesitation.  He is able to pace and trot under saddle as well as canter.

In terms of health,  Art has been kept up to date on vaccines, farrier care, dental exams, and deworming.  He's also had biannual vet checks and bodywork/chiro care for maintenance.  Art has good strong hooves and has always been in good health throughout his life.  Some cryo treatments on his front tendons being the only evidence of past issues during his racing career, however, this has never been a problem post racing.

Art is suitable for a novice rider or above and he would likely be fine with a beginner alongside an experienced trainer.  He is currently boarded in Indus, AB.  Art has many productive years ahead of him and would make a wonderful partner for someone wanting a steady,reliable, personable horse they can spend quality time with.
