’20 Pale Moon

1 year old thoroughbred gelding bred in Kentucky
More Than Ready (Southern Halo) out of Pale Moon(GB) by Dansili(GB)

14.3 plus hands and growing. Moon never raced and has no published works.

A special gelding with a heart that aims to please. He is very kind and enjoys his grooming sessions. He stands well and likes to watch and see what your are doing. He stands by his stall door looking out to see the happenings going on around the barn. A curious fellow for sure! He is a gentleman for the vet and is learning to stand for the farrier. He is not broke to ride.

Moon is looking for a home where he could be used for showmanship, companionship or possibly welcoming visitors to your bed and breakfast at this time. He was not fit for racing due to several issues. His left front fetlock has a large abaxial fracture medial sesamoid at the medial suspensory branch attachment. His left hock is severely compressed with some malformation and mild to severe degenerative joint disease. His right hock is also showing compression with malformation and mild to severe degenerative joint disease. Both hocks can be treated with injections. He is sound and is not bothered by his issues. Obviously, the hocks issues will limit him. Once they are fused will determine if he could do more.

Moon turns out well other geldings and settles in quickly to graze. He was brave his first time seeing our arena while other horses were running in their pastures around him. A brave boy. He showed no hesitation walking over ground poles and was not spooky at all. He does like to stop and take things in but moves on without issue.

Moon is a great partner and can teach children showmanship skills or help you get back into the equestrian world!
