Description

Moscato, a.k.a. Scotty is a “gentle giant” in the truest sense of the term. He is a 17.3 hh, 17-year-old Belgian gelding. I have owned him for the past six years and used him lightly in my small carriage business. He is an absolutely bombproof horse. He has been in parades with canons, firetrucks, fireworks and I have even driven him past a helicopter with its propellers spinning!

Scotty is VERY slow but very steady. He doesn’t have the desire to run away and has absolutely no fear of anything! I have used him for weddings, hack rides, parades and for beginning drivers. I am downsizing my carriage business and hope to find him a wonderful home.

Again he is 17 and very slow. He’s not really the horse for a large carriage operation however, he would be perfect for someone wishing to do weddings or parades, have a personal horse for playing with on the farm, or a very slow husband horse. One of Scotty’s great attributes is that he is exactly the same if you drive or ride him once a week or once a year.

Scotty is broke to ride but I’ve only ridden him infrequently. He is safe, slow, steady and very sweet. He will halt, back up, change direction and move off the leg--with a lot of urging. He’s not going to be a show horse!!

Of course he’s up-to-date on all vaccines, teeth, worming and currently wearing shoes. He doesn’t need stocks to be shod. He goes perfectly without shoes and has nice solid feet. He stands for bathes, clipping and loads easily in the trailer. He has a current coggins.

When I first bought Scotty he was very thin and had been through a few sales and I found him through a Amish broker’s lot. He had terrible food aggression toward my other horses. Now he’s turned out with another draft and two Arabians and so long as I lock him in for grain, all goes perfectly. He’s not aggressive toward the others around the round bale, and so in the winter I just put one out at a time. Scotty is a very easy keeper and just needs a little grain (1.5lbs Purina 32) in the summer and pasture and hay and grain in the winter (2.5 lbs Purina Strategy in the winter).

The riding video shows him being ridden for the first time in two years.

The driving video just shows his steady pace in traffic no matter how loud the Harley are.

The trailer loading video shows how easy he is to work around. He loads and unloads really easily.

Inquiries and vet checks are welcome! I am insanely busy right now but I will do my best to answer any questions. A VERY good, qualified home is my number one priority.
