TRUE NORTH NIMROD ION #15126 (a/a, e/e, nd1/nd1 and a novel DW most likely as he surprisingly tested negative for Sabino and the normal Splash and DW genes)

10-month old registered chestnut gelding (DOB 6/12/21).  Ion is a smart gelding, as are all Canadians.  He loves to be groomed, yields his body parts, knows over, backs, and is learning various tricks like target, mark, corner, and bow.  He continues to work on things like heel, walk on, come left/right and hard left/right, foot, brave, touch, go get it, etc.  He’s an athletic, catty colt (meaning he is light or quick on his feet) with nice gaits that would be suitable for any discipline (a lovely jump and nice rollbacks observed at pasture!).  Ion appreciates challenges, hence the trick training!  I think he’s like a job that requires some thinking.  Working equitation comes to mind.  Ion is eager for the next challenges in his life and is ready to forge new partnerships.  He is located in the Lexington, KY, USA area.

He is UTD on vaccinations and has a current Coggins.  He is good for the farrier, giving each hoof nicely.  Ion has not yet loaded on a trailer, but we work on things like “load up”, and he’s been sacked out with eyes covered to prepare him for various new activities.  He has not yet been tied either, but leads nicely and responds well to the halter.  He does stand pretty quietly in the corner of the stall until released, so I think tying will be a relatively easy transition.  He’s a willing youngster and will make someone a wonderful partner.  I expect Ion to mature to around 15.2hh.  Price $4500 USD.

Please note: I have two mares foaling in May and June and as the property is small, therefore I had to geld him because he did not sell as a stallion.  Located in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
