Fox Valley Viper

Name: Fox Valley Viper (Viper)
Gender: Gelding
Year Foaled: 2016
Breed: Standardbred
Size: 17.0hh

Viper is a very  handsome three year old Standardbred Gelding.  He is extremely sweet and loves attention.  He is a big boy at 17 hands.  He has nice ground manners, but at only two years old, he is not yet trained for either riding or driving.    Racer Placers looks forward to Viper’s progress, and will occasionally post up-dates.

July 2018 Update:

At two years old, Fox Valley Viper, aka Viper, is already a big boy.  He is 16 hands, and well built!  Viper was a breech born foal, and spent his early months being handled daily.   When he came to Racer Placers, he knuckled over on one front foot.  He had surgery to correct the problem, and now he is moving nicely and recovering from his surgery.

Viper is going to need another year to mature and become the horse he is destined to be, but he is sweet, loves attention, has no vices, and gets along with any other horse.   He is also very pretty with a beautiful full mane and forelock.

October 2018 Update: Per veterinarian advice, Viper will probably never be a riding horse. Although he may not be rideable, he may make someone a nice light pleasure driving horse.

January 2019 Update: Viper continues to improve and is doing his best to prove everyone wrong, which he has been doing all his life. He has a magnificent trot in the pasture and only time will tell what Viper will be capable of in his future.
