Meet MSSPA’s social butterfly, and your new best friend, Gideon! Gideon is a 15.1hh dark bay Standardbred gelding. At 23 years young, Gideon acts more like a teenager than his graying muzzle would indicate. He is friendly and sociable with other horses and humans alike. Gideon stands easily for the farrier and is fair for the vet. He is easy to handle and would be suitable as a companion for somebody with previous horse handling experience, though his occasional exuberance could be a challenge for a novice. Gideon loves to be groomed and is very playful. His favorite thing to do is have a good roll in the dirt and take a gallop around the field with his friends, so he would make a great companion for a younger horse who likes to play and run.
