Bungalow Bill – “Bungie”
ARRIVED AT ATR:
Bungie was adopted by ATR’s former assistant manager Jade Sevelow-Lee who was able to take him with her in her move to Oregon with another ATR graduate Nanny Cay.
“Bungie” is a beautiful, big-boned, 16.3-17.0 hand, 4 year old chestnut gelding who retired in January, 2015 with a small bowed tendon. Bungie has since been on rest and rehab at ATR and was recently progressed to full turn-out on an awesome grass pasture with a couple quiet buddies.
Bungie seems to get along well with other horses, has no vices, and is sound, but still needs a bit of time for his tendon. His next evaluation will be in May, 2015 and we hope that he will soon be able to return to work.
When Bungie is ready he will need a kind, quiet rider who is confident. Bungie can be a little bit of a baby on the ground, but loves people, is very sweet, and tries very hard to be good in every situation. We are told that under saddle at the track, he drew confidence from his rider and took care of them while he worked, so we have confidence he’ll be a wonderful partner for someone once he is ready.
