CROFFTRHIADD STEEL

A VERY UNIQUE BOY NOT TO BE MISSED

16'3
6 YEAR OLD
BLUE ROAN
4 WHITE STOCKINGS
SHIRE X
GELDING

Very unusual stamp of a horse, four flashy knee high socks - this gentle giant would excel in the show ring (hogged) or equally on the hunting field next season.

With bone shoulder and a quarter like his there is huge potential for a future in the collar and a sensible attitude to pull a dray.

STEEL has been allowed to mature in the same home since a foal, receiving correct worming and kind handling.

STEEL has the temperament to die for. And is quite literally a gentle giant. He is good to catch and stable. Takes everything asked of him in his stride.

He leads well - is confident to allow people to touch him all over. He is certainly enjoys his treats and is more than willing to do anything for a pony nut

STEEL has loaded onto a 5'11 trailer and travelled like a rock.

He is available for sale to the right home that will offer him the opportunity he deserves. He will not be sold to any novices as he is a big boy and will require an experienced handler to continue his education, either to break into ride or drive.

We simply do not have the time to offer this boy the chance he deserves. If we still have him in a few weeks we shall commence his career.

Horse Buying Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Shire. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a horse from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list.


  • Do your research first
    Getting a new horse is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the horse. You can read our detailed Information guide about horses for potential new horse owners.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the horse at the advertisers stable, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit without seeing the horse, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the horse or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any horse. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.
    If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Is the horse over 6 months of age?
    Horses must be at least 6 months old before they can leave their mothers.
  • Check the Health of the horse
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a horse is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the horse, make sure that you get an equine specialist veterinary surgeon to perform a full veterinary assessment of the horse before you agree that you will buy the horse.

Please read visit our Horse Advice section for further information before buying a horse or pony. Here are a few very useful articles you should read first :
