Markus is a uniquely patterned foundation appaloosa gelding . He was a breeding stallion for three seasons on our farm, and was gelded november of 2018. He is coming 5 in June. Markus is good natured, and i was hoping to make him a beautiful trail horse for myself. I worked with him on the ground at two and three years old, and started very light riding in our arena in December, 2018. Markus is naturally slow and lazy , but has curiosity about the world and moves along more willingly outdoors on our farm. He has seen nothing but his paddock for four years, so he will need much exposure to desensitize him to all the spooky things out there. I had only ridden him alone at a walk so far, and he was not reacting to mares across fences. Recently though, i pastured him with two geldings and a mare, and his stallion behavior returned. He is still interested in breeding the mares. We have l5 mares here , and he would need to be able to be ridden with mares on our farm. Thus i am reluctantly letting him go. Markus needs an all male home and someone to pick up where I left off and continue training him. I have not ridden him this last month since foaling here has begun and that takes all my time. Let me know your questions.. this is a project horse, not a broke riding horse. I added a casual video of markus and me in the arena. He had not been touched in a month. By himself, he is a gentle horse.
