What a stunning big black hunk of sculpted, muscular, TB perfection! Our volunteers could hardly take our eyes off Mr. Honey Badger, proclaiming him one of the most gorgeous horses we have ever seen. We admired his solid boned balanced body, strong sloping shoulder, muscular topline, elegant head and kind intelligent eye. And his heart and athleticism and work ethic match his beauty — he has won 12 races, with 8 seconds and 12 thirds out of 61 starts. His owner told us that he is just a great horse with a great mind, who will do anything that you ask him to do and who always tries hard. After his last race in late March, he was diagnosed with a small ankle chip. It was x-rayed, and those x-rays will be available to seriously interested potential good homes. The vet said that with a rest period, the chip should reabsorb and be no issue at all for future new careers in any discipline. Mr. Honey Badger was given a month of stall rest, had his shoes pulled, and then has been walking and trotting on the eurociser, and has also been enjoying turn out. It is recommended that he stay in light work for another month or so before starting more rigorous retraining. His caring owner, who so greatly appreciates all that this horse has done for them, does not want to bring him back to racing, but instead wants to find him a great new home where Mr. Honey Badger can excel in a new career. He was a perfect gentleman for his photo session, and despite being barefoot he jogged very nicely on the pavement, showing lightness and balance to his movement. His pedigree is ideal for sport/jumping: he is a son of Purim, who is by the great Dynaformer. His dam is by More Than Ready, who is from the Halo/Hail to Reason sire line, with Fappiano on her dam side.
A very good home is essential — serious inquiries only please.
