Rascal

Generously sponsored by
Mike and Mary Bland.

Well hey there everybody! My registered name in The Jockey Club is Scout’s Honor, but you can call me Rascal. As you can/will see my name fits me well. I am “Mr. Personality”, but I am sure it won’t take you long to figure that out. I was born in 2002. Yes it is true, even though I do act quite mature for my age (well, when I am working). You would swear I was a seasoned veteran! I am a bay, 15.2 hand Thoroughbred gelding. Oh, and did I mention I am very cute too!

Mike and Mary Bland are my sponsors. They donated funds to pay for my feed, hay and veterinarian and farrier visits when needed. I am so grateful!

My mom and donor, Daryl Whitmoyer, thought that this would be the best place for me. I know it was very hard for her to give me up. But don’t worry mom, I love it here! I have lots of friends to play with and there are so many people giving me lots of attention. Just make sure you come and visit. I promise I will make you proud! Prior to arriving at Fieldstone Farm, I was shown in adult hunters. Due to an accident in the early part of 2007, I can no longer jump. That is okay; I still have lots of talent on the flat. I am a very laid back guy and consistent in the riding ring. I hope to teach a lot of younger riders; since I think my even, easy going temperament will help build their confidence.

Now, on to more stuff about me! You will notice that I wear bell boots, they protect my heels and help keep my shoes on my hooves. I can play a little rough outside – that would be when my age really shows. I stand well for grooming, but please don’t curry real hard. Us sensitive Thoroughbreds can’t handle it. You may notice that I may act a little playful like trying to chew my reins or lead line – just excited to be working. Please do not allow me to do this. One thing that I really do not like is to have rings, hats or anything else placed on my ears. I am fine with all the other stuff, but please don’t play with my ears (I guess you would call that a minor character flaw). I am fine to halter and bridle. You may notice I carry my head a little lower when working; it helps me carry myself correctly and use my back end properly. I may start out a little choppy at times at the trot until I get loosened up. One more thing, you may also notice from time to time a small haze in my left eye. Don’t worry, I can see everything just fine. I get a little inflammation/ irritation in that eye. I am sure I will meet you all very soon! If you are strolling down the aisle and notice a wiggly nose coming thru the feed hole- it would be me saying hello!
