ARRIVED AT ATR:
Vectran was adopted by Jessi up in the Poconos to be her next hunter horse. While he’s starting out as a project, she hopes for him to be her next forever horse. Early reports show that he settled right in to his new herd and has enjoyed hacking out around the trails as well as in the ring. Jessi says she couldn’t be happier with him at this point. Wishing them all the best.
5 year old, 16.1 hand Vectran is a Kentucky bred son of Hard Spun who raced only 6 times. He retired in January of this year and came home to the same farm where he was raised, just down the road from After the Races.
Twice Vectran has been adopted and twice returned through no fault of his own. The first time he was too green for the lady who took him a few days off the track. The second time it was reported the other horses on the farm just picked on him too much. He’s been back here since early September. He needed some time to heal a pretty large flesh wound, but is now ready to go back to work. It should be noted this horse has lived in multiple groups of geldings and mares at our farm with no problem. In fact, he’s always been the easy one out in the field. We’re unsure why he didn’t fit in at the last farm, but my bet is on the donkey.
Vectran is sound and pretty clean legged aside from some scar tissue from two flesh wounds. He does not have any known limitations. Vectran gets along well with other horses, has no vices, and is lovely to work with in and around the barn. We just started him back to work and he rides around like a horse of many more years and with much more training than he’s had. He’ll likely make a lovely project/partner for someone and he has a great temperament for an amateur.
