Description

ABOUT KYLO

Kylo was living at a boarding stable and his owners could no longer care for him so they donated him to Bluebonnet.

Kylo has a stock horse type build. His coat, mane and tail are an incredible shade of red and he shines in the sun! Kylo’s foster mom jokingly calls him “Eeyore” as he stands with his head really low to the ground when he is resting and nothing really seems to bother him. He fits in well with the other horses, including a miniature horse, at his current foster home and is submissive towards them. He has great ground manners and will stay calmly tied for as long as you want to groom him or whatever! Kylo is not a big fan of dogs running around him. He will lower his head and pin his ears when dogs are around.

Kylo is a cribber and, despite being out on pasture 24/7, he still cribs excessively. He has evidently been doing it for many years as his upper teeth are worn down all the way. He cribs on metal gates and the wood in his lean-to shelter.

EVALUATION AND TRAINING

Kylo came to his current foster home after having spent most of his time out in the pasture throughout 2020-2021. Kylo knew a lot but was rusty so his foster home has been riding him regularly this summer getting him back into shape. He likes to find places to rest and stop, so he needs a rider who will pay attention, hold him accountable, and not let him drift over to his favorite spots. He's also had significant exposure to other barn animals such as goats, cats, dogs this summer and is comfortable being around them. Kylo is a handsome and sweet guy who could be fun for 4H, pleasure riding, trail riding, or even open shows.
