Barn Name: Toby
Birth Date: March 5, 2008
Height: 17 hh
Toby is a very loveable, kind-hearted gelding that was lucky enough to find his way to Offshore Acres. Britt and Nick rescued both him and Rory) from a horse auction where they were bound for slaughter. Britt was betting for Toby and Rory and when the meat buyer capped out at his maximum, both horses became theirs in August 2017. Toby is an Off the Track Thoroughbred who won a mere $325 after only 3 starts
Toby is out of Queenship by Possee, and has Mr. Prospector blood further back in his lineage.
When Toby arrived he was underweight, had severe mud fever on both backs legs, and even some on the front. He was neglect. He was skittish and flighty when in the cross-ties and tacking, and had to be taught how to trust people again. Through patience, Britt slowly brought him along over the 2017-2018 winter and Toby began to flourish. He was destined for the hunter ring.
Toby steals the hearts of many people he meets. His personality has really evolved into an amazing, steady, personable and reliable gelding.
Toby is currently out on full lease.
