Whisky came from Dunedin way, he is around 16.2hh and has the most amazing, loving personality in a horse.
He was used for a hack by his previous owner and this was going to be his job here. Unfortunately we noticed that he was suffering from arthritis in his hips and hocks, so he spends his days eating and sleeping.
He loves food, any food, so is easily motivated to do things when this is involved lol.
He hates a bit in his mouth, and can become very difficult to put a bridle on. He is now ridden bitless and he has the occasional ride out just to keep him mentally stimulated and happy.
Whiskey has been to some cowboy challenge training days which he was ok with.
He doesn’t do well on his own and can get a wee panic on if he can’t see his paddock mates when out riding.
Whisky will stay with us where we can monitor his arthritis and receive the care he needs.
