Our Horses

Gus

  • Belgian Draft – Gelding
  • Born in 1999

Although Gus doesn’t sound very Irish, it is a classic and very old Gaelic name, Angus, from the Old Irish óen‘one’ gus ‘excellence’, ‘force’ and ‘courage’. In Irish myth Aengus is the God of love, youth and poetic inspiration.  This is our Gus, a gentle loving giant, a large teddy bear. Gus is a Chestnut gelding, with a flaxen mane and tail. He is quite clearly the tallest horse we have at Shamrock Reins and weighs approximately 2,000 pounds. Gus expects undivided attention when working with him.  He is a cooperative partner and a good teacher. Once he gets to know you he loves you forever! Gus is very calm and sociable and always seems to have a smile on his face.
