A cute name for an absolutely adorable gelding! This handsome boy is a lightly raced 3 year old. His current owner/trainer has known him the majority of his life and has had him in their care for quite a bit of it too. They have grown quite fond of this boy so a good home is an absolute must. Bugbee had two starts as a two year old and while in his final train before his first start as a three year old, he sustained a mild sesamoid fracture. His trainer moved him to the farm where he has been rehabbing appropriately ever since. Bugbee was on stall rest for two months and has been using the walking machine for the past few weeks under veterinarian’s guidance. We did do a brief jog video to get a glimpse of his movement, and he jogged soundly with nice reach and suspension. He does need a few more months of rehabbing time but should be back to full work with an excellent prognosis for sport around the six month mark (already half way there)! His current connections are happy to release all X-rays and vet reports to seriously interested parties to ensure he goes to the best of homes. Despite being a young horse out of work, Bugbee was very respectful of his handler during his photo shoot, even with his buddies in the barn causing a bit of a ruckus. His exercise rider reports that he is “like riding a sports car” (sounds pretty fun to us)! At only 3 years old, he will continue to grow for a few more years and with all of the young horses we list, we suggest some down time to finish growing and maturing, which works perfectly for his rehabbing timeline! As you can tell from his pictures, Bugbee is an exceptionally cared for boy. References will be checked as his connections would prefer he stay looking as good as he does now. We can point you in the direction of many happy shoppers who have purchased horses from these caring trainers in the past. He has no vices and his connections report that he is an easy keeper. He is by Frost Giant out of a Distinctive Pro mare.
