Hyrdar by jassukassu Hyrdar by jassukassu

My third teke stud! :la:
:new: got his ref done, I love the headshape <3 and I hope Rhith don't mind that I put bloodmark on otherside of his face, hehe


Name: Hyrdar (Nickname: Hero)

Gender:  Stallion

Breed: Akhal Teke

Age: 5

Height: 16.1hh

Color: Grey

Geno: aa/Ee/Gg

Markings: Two front stockings, hind socks

Training: Basic, elementary cross country

Bloodlines: Starter

Quirk: Will happily walk into his stable by himself, but refuses if he's led in. Loads into a horsebox fine.

Fear: Cows

Favourite Treat: Banana

Personality: His name may mean 'Lover of the wild' but this is a horse who loves his creature comforts. Noble and proud, this is a horse who knows he's good at what he does. Very much a stallion, he has his fiery moments, but becomes a complete puddle of horse if small children are involved. He's quite particular about everything, preferring his food to be just so, and every piece of tack or blanketing must be clean, or it's coming off. He will avoid anything that might make him dirty, which is a great trait in a grey, but can be annoying if you're trying to get him through a mud puddle. Despite his picky ways, he has a loyal heart, and will run himself to death if that's what is asked of him, without hesitation.

History: An unwanted foal, he was weaned a month early and sold straight away. Bought by someone who'd never expected to see a pure bred Teke, let alone own one, he quickly overcame his unfortunate start in life with the best care and attention. As a result, he bonded strongly with people, almost learning perfect ground manners without formal training in a desire to please. Very little training was done until he reached 3, he was allowed to just be a horse, with frequent visits by the children of the staff members, who would take advantage of his kind nature by dressing him up, crawling all over him, consistently 'winning the derby' and just generally not giving him a moments peace; he adored it. Once he hit three, his basic training began, and he took to it as he had taken to everything else, quietly and calmly with little fuss.

Although he took fairly well to cross country, it was obvious he didn't enjoy it; pinning his ears and pulling faces whenever he encountered a course, but never going so far as to display really bad manners. He was also not the best at jumping, needing his rider to place him every step of the way, especially for obstacles over about two foot. He displayed little to no talent at being able to judge distances for himself, proving to be a bit of a liability when it came to competitions. Not wanting this beautiful horse to go to waste, his owner offered him up for sale, but only to the right kind of home.

I'm always debating with myself whether or not now is a good time to add another teke to my stable :lmao: Wish it was a breed that would pick up more in the HARPG.
