"Jack" is a two year old grade paint gelding. He has been an excellent colt for me to train and work with, and has never offered to bite, kick, nip, buck or rear. NO bad habits. He is very gentle and is always one of the first to greet me at the gate during "chow time."
He has great ground manners - leads, stands tied, picks up all four feet, easy to catch, etc. Nothing seems to bother him. I've crawled under his belly, slid off his butt, ridden him bareback, etc. He doesn't mind baths either.
Jack is very easy to tack up, and has never given me problems. I always ride him in a snaffle bit, and he loves it. He rides out by himself or with other horses, either way he is very confident on the trails. I ride him out on the gravel roads a lot and dogs, vehicles, four-wheelers, loud trucks, other horses/cattle in pastures don't bother him. He tacks up very easily, takes the bit with no problems and doesn't fuss when you tighten his cinch. He crossed bridges, and walks over logs without hesitation. Walk/trot/canter on cue and without fuss.
Jack is a very easy keeper, gets grained every evening. He gets picked on by my other two horses - mainly his sire. He is bottom of the pecking order right now, and I hate seeing him get beat up by the big boys.
I would like Jack to go to a home with experienced horse people, due to his young age. He has never given me any problems, but young horses are still developing mentally and physically and can be unpredictable. His new owner will sign a contract agreeing to not sell him - and if it doesn't work out, he must be returned back to me. NO HORSE TRADERS.
I've let kids as young as 8 ride him around the yard without any problems. Jack has a great start - ride him anywhere without any problems and now he is ready for a job. I already have a barrel mare, and a western pleasure gelding. Jack was just a project for me, and now I am ready for another one.
Jack is 14.2 hands high, 700lbs and growing everyday. He has a big hip on him, so I think he will fill out to be stocky.
I want Jack to go to a forever, equine-experienced home. I love this colt, and I would keep him but I hate seeing him get beat up by my other two and have no way to seperate them.
I am asking $750 OBO. (Reduced from $1000) A good home is more important than money, so feel free to make me a reasonable offer. I would be willing to trade for a bumper pull trailer (must be ready to use), a couple of registered colts (2 or older) or what have you got?
