Albert's Crossing is the absolute definition of tall, dark and handsome! This 2000, 17h registered Thoroughbred gelding started his career on the track before moving to steeplechases. From the time he was 3 until he was 10, Albert raced in 33 races, with 8 firsts and a career earning of over $140,000. A career-ending injury lead his current owner to take him under her wing to rest and rehabilitate. Under her TLC, Albert made a full recovery and spent the following years pleasure riding around the farm. A few years ago, Albert's owner decided to retire him from riding. He didn't seem to enjoy the job anymore for reason unknown, but he absolutely loved interaction and companionship. So why push it? Albert has since been loving life as a companion horse, playing with his field buddies and soaking up attention from his owner. Life changes have required that his owner seek a new home for Albert and she's hoping to find one who loves him just as much!
When we met Albert, he was happily hanging out in his stall. He was caught and walked out quietly to the cross-ties, where he stood well while being groomed. He picked up all four feet and moved off pressure well. Albert was also a gentleman for walking him away from his buddies in their stalls for photos and even took a walk around his field a bit without concern.
Albert is very healthy, as you can tell from his gorgeous dappled coat. He's managed on senior feed, which requires a bump up in the winter, but he eats grass and hay with ease. He's barefoot and comfortable. Though managed in a stall, his owner feels he could be happy living out 24/7 with adequate shelter. He grows a nice winter coat and is blanketed during the coldest part of winter. Albert does well with both mares and geldings.
This goofy boy has the best personality. He's super personable and in-your-pocket. He loves attention, is curious and smart. He'd probably be a great fun project for someone wanting to dabble in some liberty training.
UTD on everything, this boy is ready to go! If you think Albert would make a fun addition to your herd, inquire about him today!
