Tux is a wonderful coloured Shetland cross.
He is measured at 9.1hh and is 6 years old.
Tux is such a sweet little guy and is beginning to understand how to be a horse. We are unsure of his history until he got to us but have been made aware he may have been previously driven and ridden.
When Tux came to us he was terrified and had such little trust in humans that he would hide constantly in the back of his stable. We have done a lot of ground work, round penning and desensitising with Tux.
Tux still only trusts people who are with him every day and can still be wary of strangers. At the rescue we have taken him around to meet all the staff and he is always improving. We began teaching tux to drive from scratch, re-mouthing, long-lining and introducing a cart, he is able to drive but still finds it all very overwhelming so would need lots and lots of practice.
Tux has been sat on with us but sadly we don’t have a rider small enough for this to be consistent.
Tux is fab to walk out and enjoys being out. He puts his own head in the headcollar and loves a scratch on his neck! He is great to round pen and absolutely loves to jump! Tux is now good with the farrier, good with traffic, stands to be brushed, is happy to be hosed.
Tux is to be rehomed through no fault of his own and due to the current conditions we are having to rehome some of our ponies.
Tux would benefit from a quiet home where he can progress at his own pace and form a bond with his new human.
Tux has so much potential and would be wasted simply as a companion and in the right home he will shine!
