Chief was pro-trained to ride when he was four and five and he showed lots of cow sense on the ranch in addition to being willing and always trying to please. He hasn't been ridden in several years now, but everyone who knows him believes he would likely go right off under saddle again with a good refresher with a trainer. Chief has an outstanding disposition and mind, is very quiet, kind, willing and calm. He has only been bred a handful of times (hand-bred with live cover) and each of his handsome foals was colored.... (read more) Chief is the culmination of about 90 years of horse breeding, racing and raising experience and knowledge. His Paint sire was VERY popular and well-respected several years back; his grandsire was APHA World Champion Team Penner; and his dam was a gorgeous Thoroughbred mare with excellent racing bloodlines and great conformation. Chief's elderly owner is only allowing Chief to sell now due to his own age and declining health. Chief has great, balanced conformation with excellent bone and solid feet, a sloping shoulder with good wither, strong back, muscular hip, well-shaped neck of good length and a pretty yet very masculine head. His last several years have not been very active, but moving around in a good-sized paddock or arena, it is easy to see his natural athleticism and charisma. Chief would make a great sire for more good-minded, well-boned and handsome foals or could be gelded and should be one whale of a GOOD gelding for trails, ranch work or whatever your dreams with a tune-up and some 'finish' in his training. Chief is of far better quality than MANY MANY stallions who are being bred on ranches or breeding farms and deserves a chance to either sire more GOOD foals or become someone's favorite saddle horse. Chief has always been kept current on his shots, worming and hoof trims; is a real gentleman for all handling, be it breeding or leading, and lives in Bend, Oregon.
