Located on a farm close to Finger Lakes Race Track, near Rochester NY.
This very sweet and pretty and mellow young homebred filly was born on Easter Sunday three years ago, and is out of a mare named MyGoldenTicket: hence her name — Golden Bunny. Wouldn’t she make a much better post-Easter present for a horse crazy kid than a rabbit that you can’t ride? Bunny has been working out at the track, but is unraced, and her breeder/owner/trainer thinks that she is not showing enough racing talent to persist with trying to make her a race horse. She is sound and clean legged, and described as a very quiet, mellow filly who is great to ride and work around, and who will do whatever you ask under tack. She was so mellow that her trainer could not get her to trot on the lead for a jog video — but he assured us that with a rider on her back she will pick a trot or a canter right up when asked. Smart girl — she knows the difference between work time and down time! Bunny’s sister Xena’s Cat was placed in a great home through the FLF listing last year, and she is already showing great jumping ability, and an unflappable “do whatever you want” attitude that ranges from trail rides to gallops on the beach. So we think Bunny will turn out the same — an all around great horse who will willingly do whatever you want her to do in any new discipline. Bunny is by Pomeroy, who is from the Danzig sire line, out of MyGoldenTicket who is by Gold Token. She is a blank slate for you to restart for any discipline. Her owner/trainer thinks she is quiet enough to be a kid’s horse with proper retraining and supervision.
Price: $1,500 negotiable to a great home with references
