Cool Blue Ant is a registered 2005 Blue Roan Quarter Horse, gentle and safe for all riders. I have owned her since 2009 and board her at Strong Stock Farm in Knoxville Tenn under the care of Mr. John Niceley, well-known horse breeder and clinician. I am an occasional rider and ranch-hand, and Cool Blue as been ideal for me - she is smart, willing, fast, has good cow smarts and makes a good all-around ranch horse and western pleasure ride. Important for me, she is easy to catch in pasture, easy to saddle and load, has never bucked with me or anyone else and gets along well with all her herd-mates. She is beautiful to look at and looks great in the orange-colored Gary Dunshee saddle you can see in the video. (Gary Dunshee former president of the ANRS and Rodeo Exes, is a nationally recognized top saddle craftsman and owner of Big Bend Saddlery in Texas.) The saddle, which fits Cool Blue like it was made for her, bosal, McCarty, blanket and halter are also for sale.
In 2011, we bred Cool Blue to the ranch stud, Smart Lil' Model who is a colt by Smart Lil' Ricochet. Smart Lil' Model is probably the best ranch horse on the farm, maybe in all of Knoxville. He is quick, smart, agile, athletic, a great reigning and roping horse. So, we all think their new little foal, Blue Chip Surprise, will be a great horse. She has great breeding, and is a beautiful bay color.
Watch both videos. These are great horses - one well-trained and ready to ride and one with enormous potential to become a super ranch horse with the right trainer. Give John Nicely a call and ask him anything you want about either horse. He will tell it to you straight. (865-250-0436) Or call me, Rob Talbert, (240-506-5715) or contact me through this website.
I will sell the blue roan mare (momma) the filly and the saddle (handmade, cost $4k new) for a great package price. Call me to discuss the details.
Buyer pays shipping or you can pick up the horses in Knoxville.
