We sold this guy, and his buddy (already placed in new home 4/21/12) as yearlings. Since then they have been well loved, and very well cared for, but no additional training was ever done since being started under saddle. They are sweet, quiet, gentle geldings. They are great to lead, load and tie (for hours). They are good with the farrier and vet work and have been kept current on vaccinations, dewormings and trimming.
Both geldings are 100% sound, correct - very straight legged, no bad habits, etc, etc, etc.
The red dun is probably around 14.3, with the heaviest, shortest cannons on a horse that I've seen - similar to his dam. That was an incredible mare. With his pedigree and looks, I'm thinking rope horse/working cow horse/trail horse. This guy has a HUGE hip and chest and a tiny little head and ear. As did his dam....and daddy wasn't bad either. He was a finished cutter by Tamulena.
We are now in the process of beginning some ground work on both of the geldings, in preparation for refreshing their under saddle work. They both were very nice to work with as weanlings and so far are still very, very good minded.
Both geldings are GORGEOUS and stout. Both are very well bred. The red dun gelding above DOES have papers (as per AQHA records) so I'm sure I can get duplicates if you want them, at your expense. I think that cost is around $50
The sorrel is now sold, and after a couple months of riding is being used as a lesson horse and as a kid's trail horse. And HE'S the one I thought was not quite as calm and quiet as this red dun. Interesting. Check out the web site.
