Denio - 2011, Shire gelding
Denio is a big Shire gelding, who will be 3 in spring 2014 - he's already 16 hands or more, and is both gendle and very nice to handle. Denio has just started his formal training, and so far he’s been a star. No problems with sacking out, first saddling, or crossing the tarp. We'll continue his training as the weather allows, first under both Western and English saddle, and then driving. Additional training can be negotiated. See Greta's page, his half sister – she is out of a Fjord mare and the same Shire stallion. Greta was an absolute dream to start under saddle and training - she's currently a cherished family member and dressage/trail mount. We believe this big gelding will follow in his sister’s footsteps. He's showing that same kind, giving demeanor, with a bit of a sense of humor.
