Sideways Vision, 2011, 16h+ chestnut gelding

Our volunteers absolutely LOVED this cute guy.  He reminded us greatly over an overgrown pony with that thick, cresty neck and his chunky build.  His trainer reports that “Vision” is a barn favorite because of his goofy, silly personality.  He reports that he is great to work around and has no vices or soundness issues (one old, set osselet that never impacts him) and is just an overall “fun guy”.  He has a great uphill build and flashy roaning throughout his coat that adds to his cute appearance. His trainer isn’t positive why his eye looks the way he does, but the vet feels it is from a surgical eyelid procedure as a young horse.  His current connections feel it is a cosmetic thing only and not impacting him.  He showed us how he does blink when hands run in front of the eye from all directions and vet also feels that he is not blind.  It certainly has not hurt his racing career.  He has earned over $177,000 in his 66 starts with 8 wins, 12 seconds, and 13 thirds.  Hitting the board 50% of his starts is a fantastic record and a testament to his soundness, durability, and work ethic.  His trainer reports Vision will crib for a few seconds at feeding time only.  They have never used a cribbing collar, so it is likely this could be eliminated by that.  They report that has been turned out at the farm and is well behaved.  Like most horses, he loves the laid back farm life.  We think Vision will be a super fun prospect and we can’t wait to see him brought along!  Vision is by Pollard’s Vision out of a Boston Harbor mare.
