"Murphy"
Approximately 1998 Grade Gelding

Oh, Murph. That's what you will typically hear our equine staff say when talking about this astute gelding. Murphy is a tall, regal, and oddly put together (we have no clue what he's mixed with) paint who will win over anybody's heart. This gentleman has a history of being a lesson horse in his younger years, but he would prefer to forget about those times. He would like a friend from the ground, not his back. Since Murphy put in his years teaching people, and unfortunately had a time period where people did not treat him well, he has earned his retirement. This boy is an easy keeper, and enjoys being groomed. He has good ground manners, although he sometimes doesn't like being caught when he's in a stall- I mean, would you like somebody dragging you out of your bedroom? Murphy likes all equines: horses, ponies, donkeys, mules...he doesn't judge! He does have some vision loss in his right eye, and just reminds you to have your vet take a peek at it yearly (it doesn't hurt him!) Murphy also asks that you be careful handling his ears, and you slip his halter crown behind his ears, not over his head. This guy is such a lovable character, and will provide you many laughs and much enjoyment over the years.

Suitable as a Companion Horse only.
