Jay is a 2013 Standardbred gelding who was rescued by J&M Acres back in November 2015 and adopted shortly after. Unfortunately, the family could no longer keep him and he has come back to find a new home.
This big handsome boy is registered as JAY TECUMSEH and broke to drive, but never raced. He stands approx 16.2hh-16.3hh currently and may have some more growing to do. He is very well put together, appears sound and has a lovely large trot and big stride. We had our massage therapist out for him already and she could find no issues apart from his pelvis needing some adjusting.
Jay is a very sweet and mellow young man who takes everything in stride. He has had some bad handling in the past, so will do well with a firm hand but despite his size, he is neither pushy nor intimidating. He just needs a little tune-up with his manners :) Jay is easy to catch, lead, load, haul and gets along with the other horses. He needs some more work picking up his feet, but otherwise has no vices. Jay is well put together, boasts a solid mind, big beautiful trot and is just about the sweetest and cuddliest gelding on the block! He is a giant puppy dog who absolutely loves people and attention.
We have hopped on him and he was super-easy going about it despite having never taken a rider before. Jay is not be suitable for a performance career such as dressage or jumping due to an old stifle injury, but that won't stop him from being a sturdy partner in life and on the trails. Jay is a clean slate and will be an easy project for a competent horse person. With his size and quiet demeanour, he will also make a terrific husband horse once he has some time under-saddle :)
