Leo is a bay gelding. He is a branded BLM Mustang. Freezebrand: 96210670
Leo and his buddy Chance (also up for adoption) came to our rescue from an elderly couple. They were at the point where they were no longer able to ride or care for Leo and Chance and were thus surrendered to us. At that time, Leo and Chance were already out to pasture for several years. Prior to this, the couple, Leo and Chance were avid trail riders for at least 13 years.
We have put a saddle on Leo and rode him once. Overall he is fine under saddle, though he can crow hop occasionally. He is also very energetic and is on the faster side. Sometimes he will prance.
As for his pasture manners, he can be dominant and can act "studdy" around mares. A solo pasture is best, unless he is slowly introduced to a submissive gelding. He is friendly though towards people. Leo's adorable though with his dark bay color and a super thick mane. He reminds us of a spanish mustang type.
He may do just fine with a refresher under saddle and reintroduction to trails.
He is up to date on vaccines, deworming, and is in overall excellent health.
