"Viento" moved cattle on a ranch in rough terrain: canyons, fallen timber, creeks, mud, and rocky country. He is surefooted and will cross any obstacle found in ranching country. He has been roped off of and has drug calves at brandings.
He started on working cow horse maneuvers (tracking cattle, beginning cutting, working cattle on fence) at a Pat Parelly clinic in summer 2010.
Viento is very fast and he does like to travel, so he may not be a good kid or beginner horse but gets a days work done at the ranch. He has a calm disposition, though, and has pulled a plastic sled with a child on it while being ground driven.
He handles good on the ground, trims, loads, stands tied and is hobble broke.
He stands app 15 hands, 1200lbs, and is registered with AQHA; Zippo Pine Bar, Two Eyed Jack, Te N Te, Leo, and Three Bars bred.
