Say hello to Sage!
Sage is looking for a home as non-ridden companion.
Sage is an extremely striking and handsome boy who is looking for a very special perfect partner who can continue to teach him that the world is not such a scary place, and that people can be trusted. While he can be a little nervous in some situations, once time has been spent forming a bond with Sage, he is incredibly loving and enjoys nothing more than a fuss and groom from his handler. He is always first to come and greet you in the field and has a lot of love to give. Despite being a naturally shy boy, Sage has really enjoyed greeting the visitors since being at Bransby Horses, and will stand at the fence to say hello to everyone and receive some fuss. He has proven happy and passive living with a mix of both mares and gelding. While passive, he will let the youngsters know when they need to start behaving but this is never in a nasty way.
Sage began experiencing some issues with his eyes, and as a result of the pain from this he struggled to negotiate narrow spaces such as gateways and would rush through them, becoming strong. Since his eyes have been treated and resolved however there have been no instances of this behaviour.
