Yes Sir Bob is a very pretty, 6 year old, grey gelding coming to us by way of Aftercare Charles Town. He raced only 3 times, all in 2021 and was in training in 2022, with his most recent workout being on 8/20/22. He was forced into retirement after not having run in any recent races.
Bob is by Your ABC's (by Alphabet Soup), and out of a You And I mare (by Kris S). He was bred in West Virginia.
At some point in Bob's career he had an apical sesamoid fracture which has since healed. Radiographs show no significant changes or arthritis in the fetlock. Our vet thinks he'll do great as a dressage or pleasure horse, even a trail horse that hops over logs to get from point A to B on a trail. He'd just do best in a non-jumping home. Other than that the sky is the limit.
Bob's first impression on us is that he's a very kind, sweet horse who is just a bit head shy. He loves to be groomed and has not put a foot wrong yet here. He has been turned out with three other geldings and a mini mare and gets along very well with other horses. He even lets the mini call the shots!
We'll be putting Bob back to work soon and will report back once we do. In the meantime he's available to someone patient that's willing to restart him themselves.
