About Augustus

Augustus was placed with Bluebonnet after his owner realzed she had sustained too much damage during Hurricane Harvey and could ont rebuild in a timely manner.

History

Augustus’ former owner said she had rescued him.  He was still in poor shape when he arrived at Bluebonnet.  She also said he had been ridden in the past, but we don’t know how long ago that was or what his training level is.

Health / Lameness

Augustus has no known health problems.  He has a badly club front foot, but it does not seem to bother him at this time.

Other

Augustus will be gelded once he’s at a healthier weight.

Gus is a super cool guy.  He seems surprised every time his fosters show up to feed and care for him but he’s getting used to it and looks happier every day. He’s naturally sweet natured and polite with his handler.  When he gets nervous he is easily calmed by a kind word and soft hand.  He is a sweet boy.

Evaluation and Training

Augustus is a very quiet stallion, but that may change as he gains weight.  He can be a little tough to catch and may need grain as a bribe, but once caught he leads well, loads in a trailer well, and is easy to handle.

He will need to gain weight before we can further evaluate him.
