Update: Bailey has found his new home!
Chrome alert! Horses don’t come much more flashy and gorgeous than this big solid and sound QH track pony who is ready for a new career. Although Bailey is not a TB, he has been a hard working part of the Finger Lakes Racetrack community as a track pony who accompanies the racehorses to their morning training and afternoon races. He has also been an outrider’s horse at another track. While Bailey is very laid back and relaxed around the stable area, at the training track, and on the farm, lately he has been getting anxious in the afternoons on the main racing track, so his owner has decided it is time to find him a new career off the track. She says he is a great all around riding horse, including on trails, and that he can go in a hackamore. He is also quick on his feet, with the instant acceleration and speed that outrider horses need, so she thinks he would make a great barrel horse. She reports that at feeding time he can be a bit aggressive in his stall, but outside of the stall he is an affectionate ham. He enjoys turnout as well. We observed a well mannered, friendly and relaxed gentleman both in and out of his stall, as he obviously enjoyed getting groomed and soaked up the attention.
