Everyone loves a good story, so here is the one belonging to this adorable gelding: the owner purchased him shortly after his wife and he decided they wouldn’t be buying any more. He thought it better to ask for forgiveness than permission, thus his name, Honey Doesn’t Know. Luckily, when “honey” found out, she approved, and so did our volunteers! This young guy only raced twice as they wanted to give him some time for his growth plates to close. He is not showing any aptitude for racing, so his connections have decided it is time to find him a new job.
This guy stood patiently while our volunteers set him up for his photo shoot. He took every opportunity to offer his snoot for a smooch. His connections state that he is very easy to be around but will crib around mealtime. They have never tried a collar. He is reported to be sound. His groom stated that two days after his last race, they took him for a trail ride, and he acted as if he was an old pro! His connections couldn’t say enough good things about this easy going, sweet guy!
His first pass at the jog, his trainer took him. He jogged very slowly beside his trainer, but while he was very well behaved, we couldn’t see much of his movement, so his groom offered to take him for a pass. He demonstrated a lofty, flat kneed trot that, when paired with all his chrome, is sure to stand out in the hunter ring — an arena where other horses by his sire area already succeeding! But we could see this super sweet, eager to please guy going in any direction! Honey Doesn’t Know is by Majestic City who is by the coveted City Zip line known for their ammy friendly personalities. His dam, Quidnunc Gulch, is by Thunder Gulch, this line known for their athleticism, jumping ability, and good brains. We have placed three of Quidnunc Gulch’s previous offspring in past years, and they have all turned out to be wonderful horses for their happy new owners. Indeed, on of those people reports that her son of Quidnunc Gulch is her horse of a lifetime. One of our volunteers has a Majestic City son who has the sweetest personality and is succeeding in the show hunter ring, earning good ribbons at big A circuit shows, and who just finished 15th out of 85 in the show hunters at the 2022 RRP. We think Honey Doesn’t Know has great potential to be just as successful. He is fully eligible for the 2023 RRP Thoroughbred Makeover and we can see this one as the perfect project for that! Don’t let this adorable, young guy pass you by!
