Mucho was adopted in January of 2023 by Lauren in South Carolina! Lauren is excited to bring him along as a potential hunter. We already heard that they made the safe trip home and he's settling in. Can't wait to hear how he does once he gets into work. He's such a cool horse.
Mucho Mas Grande is an 8 year old, Kentucky-bred, bay gelding who arrived by way of Beyond the Wire. He is a true warhorse, retiring after 68 lifetime starts, his last of which was in October just before arrival. He is retiring as he's been less competitive lately, but is reportedly sound. As clean as his legs are, we'd wager he's made of iron.
Mucho Mas Grande is by Proud Citizen and out of a Ghazi mare. He came off the trailer a bit hot but has been settling down nicely with turnout.
Mucho has no vices and his only setback upon arrival was a tender foot, which has since toughened up. He's now ready to return to work. We've had him under saddle in the round pen once on one of our milder days and he was a very good boy. He has a marchy walk and seems to "mean business" when under saddle. He doesn't seem to know what to do with his head yet now that he's off the track, but otherwise didn't put a foot wrong.
Mucho has been very well behaved for the farrier and vet and we expect long-term will do well with amateurs or professionals alike. He is currently turned out with all mares with no issues, though he is a little attached to them. He'd probably be more independent in the future turned out with boys, unless you are willing to work with him daily for a while to help him find his focus when out of sight with the girls.
He's a very sweet boy who we love very much and we think will make one very lucky adopter a very happy horse parent.
