Adopted: July 3, 2011
Hawk has been officially adopted!
His new Mom rode him for the first time this weekend - in Donalda for the parade! She said he was pretty anxious, but she rode him around in the outdoor arena nearby until the parade started and then he did really well. He just wanted to show off! Everyone thought he was 6-10 years old instead of 26! Great job Hawk and Marie!
This is Hawk. He should be coming into the rescue pretty soon. He is a very healthy and sound 14.3hh, 26 y/o Arabian gelding that his family was no longer able to financially care for.
Hawk is easy to bath and groom, standing either single or cross tied, waits patiently for grooming or saddling, including any leg bandages or boots. He will hold his feet up to have them cleaned and stands well for the farrier. He is UTD on shots, worming, farrier etc and is an easy-keeper.
In his younger days, he was trained and shown locally on the flat and for jumping. This boy definitely has lots of go and spunk still. No buck or spook. He has great gaits (walk-trot-canter), is very responsive to the leg and well-balanced. He would be great for the intermediate-advanced rider and definitely has many good years left.
