Robert T (previously Wings on Four) was purchased at the stockyard to save him from going to slaughter. He is a 2011 gelding who will be turning 3 years old on April 14. He is currently approx 16hh, but still has some growing to do. He is broke to drive, but was never raced. He is by As Promised and out of Island Romance. He loaded and hauled great and is a super sweet and cute boy! He has a kind eye and is sound and healthy.
UPDATE [MARCH 10, 2014]: Robby went out for his first ride yesterday! He was good for tacking and mounting. He was quite unsure on the trail, but he was very brave and tried really hard - no buck, bolt or spook. All in all he did great, especially since it was his first time ever! He did great solo and had no problem with the little dogs on his heels. He traveled sound and had little issue navigating the trail. He will of course need some more work on balancing and learning his transitions, which will help to build his confidence, but all in all he did very well.
Robby has a great mind and will make a wonderful project for an intermediate rider!
