This registered 11 yr old bay gelding was consigned with us for sale. 14.3 hands, 1100 lbs. While staying with us, we've used him to check and gather cattle, check fence, and pony colts and broke horses to improve his handle as well as moving horses from pasture to pasture and barn to paddock. This gelding has been trail ridden only, up until he arrived with us. And as such, he's got a decent handle. Moves fowards and backwards and is now picking up a side pass by getting the gates on the farm from horseback. Trailers, bathes, stands tied all day. I've made sure by putting him on the Wall of Patience quite as a regular routine. Had some spook issues but this is being addressed with every ride and every round pen lesson. Stands for the farrier for trimming and shoeing. He appreciates knowledgeable horse folks and it shows. Was hard to catch when we received him, but after weeks of proper handling and approach, he now comes up to you to check it out. Still in progress with this habit. The owner is asking $1,200. He has the sense, decent size, and temperment to go in any direction. Enjoys working and is very attentive to rider. Perfect size and temperment for a calf roper. Good size for a breakaway roper. Has a nice lope, trot, and doesn't like to really run. We have had him dragging the log in the arena with control. Improving from trot to canter. Face is improving with tracking cattle. Putting him through our natural horsemanship crash course. Moves fowards backwards left and right from the ground with little pressure. Can open gates off him. Learning to lope nice circles. Very nice looking, smart. Perfect size and demeanor for a ranch horse. Does not have much speed to him. Needs a job to really make him shine. Has not been spoiled. A good foundation on a nice project horse. This is not a beginner horse and would excel with performance horse folks and reach his full potential. Current coggins. Signed transfer in hand. Will be shown at the Clinton Chuckwagon races. He might make the sale just to see what happens.
