2018 16.1h gelding John Milton sired by Jack Milton out of a Dynaformer mare. He settled into the farm quickly and went right to eating the minute he unloaded into the stall. He was great in the crossties and for a bath and walks around without a shank politely. Just a well mannered, easy going dude and total class act! To know Johnny is to love him, he has a quiet presence and good attitude about everything. He's slowly come out of his shell since retiring and really starting to enjoy this new life! I love how he is put together. He has a great shoulder, nice long neck and an uphill build and way of going. Pictures don't do this horse justice, he's absolutely stunning and quite big boned / footed. If I could fill the barn with his type I would, I cannot express just how lovely this guy is to have around. He is RRP eligible and one I can see handling the chaos of the makeover quite well.

He has since enjoyed about a month of let down and been lightly restarted under saddle. He is soft, forward thinking, uncomplicated and just a willing partner overall. He has a handful of rides and is going walk trot canter and been started over small fences. Johnny is smart to a fence and eager to please, he quickly figured it out and seems to enjoy jumping. He's schooling his changes as well and they're fairly auto. I believe he'd make an incredible event or dressage prospect! His current rider has hunt experience and believes he'd make a great fox hunting partner as well. An educated soft rider with quiet aids is going to love how this horse rides, he is responsive and really starting to use himself quite well. I'd really like to see this one go to a show home where he can shine. He has no known injuries.
