This solid bodied very good looking guy captured our volunteers’ fancy with his kind eye and his quiet and friendly personality. He is very well put together, with a strong hind end balanced by a strong shoulder. His trainer describes him as a laid back horse who is very good to handle, with no vices. We could see Mr. Mims’ laid back personality for ourselves, as he stood soaking up the sun and our attention, and jogged off on a loose lead without the usual chain over his nose, showing more interest in walking than jogging. He has a good overstep and flow to his walk. His legs are clean, and his trainer states that he is sound. These photos were taken in September, and Mr. Mims was then sold to a different trainer, who has put weight on him and he looks stunning, although now furry with his winter coat coming in. Note that Equibase has him listed as a ridgling, but we verified with his original owner/trainer that he was gelded, and for some reason Equibase never updated his status. Mr. Mims has a decent race record, with three wins in 20 starts, and 6 additional placings. His trainer reports that since he won his first start of the year and had to move up to tougher conditions, he doesn’t seem to have the same competitiveness, so it is a good time to let him move on to a new career. Mr. Mims is by Teuflesberg, who is from the Johannesburg/Henessy sire line and out of a mare from the Halo line — excellent sport horse lines. Mr. Mims’ dam has notable hardy sport horse sires such as Buckpasser, Private Account, and Damascus in her pedigree.
