If you've ever thought that that there is no such thing as a perfect horse, come meet Cooper. He's about as perfect a horse as you will ever hope to find!! Cooper is a 7yr old, red & white Tobiano, 14.2h, Belgian/Paint cross gelding, that is the Trifecta of horses; he's gorgeous, well trained, and has tons of personality.
Cooper's ground manners are inpeccable; he leads, loads, ties, is good with his feet, bathes, clips, is respectful of personal space, is easy to catch, and he LOVES people. He will hug you with his face every time you see him. He also loves cookies, and will allow you to give him as many as you want!
Cooper stands perfectly for tacking up, and for mounting. He won't move til you tell him to. His gaits are smooth, he is learning to neck rein, his transitions are good, he backs up easily, and his stop is perfect from any gait. Because of the draft side of his breeding, he is quiet and not spooky, but due to the Paint side, he has tons of "go" when asked. He's sane and safe, but sassy and spirited, all at the same time!!
Cooper has been used previously as a ranch horse, and did very well. He's seen tons of trail miles too. Cooper will occasionally test his rider, but not often and not for long either. If you let him know right from the beginning that you are the boss, he won't bother to argue.
Cooper has some pretty unusual markings too. He's mostly a deep coppery sorrel, but has the 4 high white stockings that are typical of a paint. The only other white on him is a white streak through his mane, a small belly patch, and a large heart-shaped patch of white on his backside. He's absolutely adorable!!
Cooper is an easy keeper and he doesn't need shoes. He's got rock hard draft feet. He can be a little rough in a herd with more submissive horses, but he does fine with horses (especially geldings) that are more dominant.
