Southside Bryan is a 2012 Standardbred colt born May 20th. He came into the rescue on April 29, 2014 with his two half-brothers. They share the same sire, Blissful Flight, a 2002 Standardbred who won $23,191 in his career. Their grandsire, Blissfull Hall, earned over $1.4 million in his career. He does have a freezebrand on his neck (8KS00).
Bryan stands approx 14.2hh currently. He is a very nicely built colt with a kind eye and lots of growing to do! He is good with the other horses and a very respectful young man with a good head on his shoulders. He is halterbroke and easy to handle and lead. He is good on the road and does well with traffic. Very calm! Loves people and attention and is very gentle. He also got his feet done for the first time! We only got his fronts done as he is still unsure about his backs being touched, but he did great and tried really hard.
He is available FREE to approved home with a 60-day gelding contract if anyone is interested in giving him a loving, forever home now. Adoption fee will increase to $500 if not homed prior to TLC and his procedure.
