Rehome Me: Leyland
Leyland came into HorseWorld in August 2015 as part of a large group of feral horses – including stallions and mares with foals. They had been exposed to little, if any, human interaction and so were very suspicious of anyone trying to get near them. Leyland was a Stallion when he arrived and so it was important for us to gain his trust and begin his training so that he could be gelded as quickly as possible. He was very wary of people and had a very strong flight instinct, however over several months the training team worked patiently and consistently with him to gain his trust. He eventually turned a corner in his handling and became much more trusting towards people. He is now a happy and healthy young gelding who is generally good to handle and good for the farrier, dentist, vet, etc.
Leyland is looking for a loving loan home as a non-ridden companion and will require an experienced, confident handler. He is happy living out all year round, however, is only able to be turned out with geldings.
