Description

Odin, foaled 1999, 16 hand, Chestnut, Tennessee Walker, Gelding

Looking for his forever home!

Odin is being offered as a Companion horse. Though he is lightly rideable, we feel that he is more suited to just be a big teddy bear and get hugs and attention more then anything. To be a true riding partner, he still needs to work on his spookiness and pull back risk. But he stands for the vet and farrier and to be groomed, just does not tie well. We leave the rope across our arm, while grooming him.

Odin was in a terribly abusive situation and a lady purchased him to get him away from a man that was beating him. Unfortunately once she got Odin home she immediately realized that she could not handle the behavior he was showing from the abuse and she called PPER.

When we went to pick up Odin he was terribly thin and frightened. Leading him was a problem and trailering a real issue. But we got him in the trailer, loading him like cattle and we brought him to PPER.

He has since gained weight and is turning into a real love bug. He gives me hugs every morning now and after getting to a healthy weight and calming down a lot is now a volunteer favorite.

Odin is very frightened anytime anyone pulls him to the front. He walks well to the side and is a very sweat timid boy, however he will react fearfully with a pull on the halter from the front. We have taught Odin to walk on a lead rope beside us. As we do not like to pull our horses behind us anyway, We want to see their head and reactions so that we can better control them and walking behind us, we simply cannot see them, For us we feel much safer having our horses walk at our shoulder, where we can see their face.
