Charlie is our 10 year old, Dappled Buckskin QH Gelding.
He is a rescue. His story is something out of curiosity,. We got a call about someone wanting to get rid of a few horses, so we took interest and went to see them. Charlie was included in the bundle of three. He was being fed dog food with bird seed mixed into it, and was being abused with a lunging whip. He would not load a trailer, and was never properly cared for.
Because of this, Charlie is missing his left eye. Luckily though, it doesn't affect him at all! He will do anything thrown at him.
The sellers told us that he was registered under the name, Ã¢â‚¬ËśSpirit', and that he was used as a roping horse.
Riding him, it seems that he was once a reining horse, not a roper, but does take to it.
Charlie is a high stepper, and moves beautifully.
He Neck Reins, Side Passes, and W/T/C/G.
We put him on barrels and he runs (At average) a 22. He is not a kids or beginners horse, though he has had kids (And dogs) around him and on him before.
-Does not like a lot of pressure on his face, but has gotten much better with it. He rides in a hack and bit *Update 2-10-14* Charlie no longer has this problem. He prefers the hackamore over the bit!*
- Gets nervous when his pasture buddies leave. He was always been with other horses. (Before and after we got him)
He stands to get his feet trimmed, to get groomed and tacked up, and is an angel when it comes to bathing. He has been used on trails many times, but I'd like him to go to a home where that isn't the only thing he's used for. He is an amazing and beautiful horseÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
