"Baby" is a 2 year old Appaloosa gelding, and he is absolutely as QUIET as they come. He is BY FAR the easiest horse I have ever started. NOTHING is a big deal to him, there is absolutely nothing that bothers this horse.
He has been started under saddle, and is wouldn't take anything to get him finished. He walk, trots, lopes both directions (picks up leads, if you set him up, he will never miss), has been started on leg yielding and collection. He loves "Whoa", he will stop with just your seat, when you quit riding, he's ready to stop. You DO NOT have to beg this horse to go, he is nice and quiet but you never have to beg him to keep him going and he doesn't break gait. He will move off of your leg, you can move his hip, shoulders, whatever you want. He is absolutely NOT SPOOKY. I have yet to see this horse spook at anything, even a 4 year old running up and down the aisle while he is in cross ties. Not only is he great in an arena, he is great on the trails. He has been trailered to multiple times for trail rides. Baby is completely unconcerned, he is relaxed and plugs along wherever you ask him. He has crossed water multiple times without issue, even waded past his chest. I've even ridden him bareback in a halter along the road with traffic.. didn't mind one bit. I have thrown a rope off him, pulled barrels (forward and back). He has been in front of cattle and didn't think twice, walked right into a herd of 20 head.
Baby stands to be tied, cross tied, tied to the trailer, in his stall... he cocks a leg and hangs out for as long as you need. He hops in the trailer like he's an old show horse. Bathes, fine for farrier and vet.
"Baby" is a halter prospect! Out of Heza Cool Fella (AQHA open halter ROM, multiple grand championships), Grandsire JMK Malibu Ken (World Champion, Reserve World Champion, Superior Halter, ROM Halter) out of Mr Yella Fella.
This horse will take you wherever you want to go! He has the breeding, flash, and conformation (about as perfect as they come) to bring you home a check each time he enters the show ring. He would be an outstanding halter prospect, as well as a 4-H horse, all around show horse, whatever you want him to do, he could do it. He has an amazing hip, nice shoulder, strong through the stifle and gaskin. He has great feet. One of his best Appaloosa traits ---- HE HAS A TAIL! he has a beautiful tail with black and flaxen.. it is THICK and LONG.
Anyone with some knowledge would be able to finish this horse, he has had a great foundation, and is ready to be finished any way you'd like. He has NEVER offered to buck or rear. I NEVER lunge this horse before I ride, even when he's had a couple days off, he ride like he was ridden the day before. He is always quiet, never green or fresh, he is absolutely CONSISTENT. He has a great mind.
Whether you are looking for a reliable trail horse, or a new show horse, Baby has everything going for him.
