READ FULL AD: Non horse people skip over him if you want him for your kids who don't ride.
Jupiter is a very stocky (haflinger cross) 12h ish gelding pony. He is approx. 15years old according to the vet mouthing him. He comes from a family out of Stillwater who say they had owned him for a long time (but this may not be the truth, which is fine, I just think he was too much pony for them)
I could almost bet the farm he pulls a wagon.... (read more) He has his mane and tail cut like a wagon pony and he acts like a pony that would be brought up and hooked up now and then do a job and let go. No loving on him or discipline just a work pony. His build and the fact he is not spooky at all and rides and tacks well suggest all of this, though I can't prove it nor can I sell him for the more money on the idea he MAY pull a wagon.
He does ride, I have ridden him, my daughter here is riding him (she is the size of a 7yr old) and my friend in Stillwater who picked him up has trail ridden him and his non riding grandson has ridden him in the round pen. Like I said he tacks well, but likes to think he can walk past me, swing his butt around and just in general has patients problems. I worked with him for a bit and with a little come to Jesus meeting he does respect you after a bit. I tried to lift his feet and again like some work horses tried to hop and skip and pull away (never kicking at me) after a minute I got them and then after that I could pick them up no problem.
I think he is a wagon pony because he is not used to someone climbing on the side of him, once on and riding he directional reins, the fact that he backs up so well on the rein makes me believe this even more. No unbroken or non used pony back up on a rein that well without doing or knowing something. He loads like a dream and trailers, dogs don't bother him there is NO kick, bite and no buck.
He has beautiful caramel eyes and thick body and feathers on his legs. I feed him every day and probably keep him a little high but I don't want to sell a starved up horse that goes to your house and eats and acts silly. He loves to talk to you and will come to you. The ad sounds bad I am just trying to make sure the right person buys him. Anyone that knows horses can mess with him a couple days in a row like I am doing and ride him, and pick up feet and do all that you do with any riding horse and trail ride him and possibly have a wagon pony on top of it! I am only asking my price I paid and my gas/feed money back on him because I sell children's ponies and he needs a little bit more of an experienced rider than I sell to or at least someone with horse knowledge to knock the spoiled off him or like we do love some calm into him. 918-640-2516
