Playguns Boomer Jack, “Boomer”, stands approximately 14.2 hands and weighs about 950 lbs. His is a light to medium-light build, but we expect that he will grow and fill out significantly in the next couple years if he is anything like his half-siblings have been. By a Haythorn bred stud and out of a Genuine Hombre/ID Like Jack bred broodmare, he has the easy movement and good mind you would expect. We rode his mama a few years back and really liked her – and this colt is even quieter than she was!... (read more)
Boomer has about 20 rides on him right now and will continue to be ridden while he is advertised. Nearly all of his riding has been out across the pastures or trail riding. Because he is just two years old, we have only lightly started him, but he walks/trots/lopes both directions and easily turns and stops. We have not done much arena riding on him, but his willing attitude and solid start should make it easy for him to transition into that area if you would want. Boomer travels out quietly and easily, with no funny business – no buck, kick, rear, spook, etc. – and is not barn or buddy sour. He is definitely a “more whoa than go” type. This colt wants to get along and tries really hard to do anything you ask of him!
Boomer is decent to catch, stands tied quietly for as long as you ask, enjoys being brushed, stands for grooming/saddling, lets you handle his feet, and loads/unloads from the trailer easily. He is so quiet on the ground that our 5-year-old son leads him to and from his pen and around our yard. Watch the video of him being ridden with all of the kid chaos!
This colt is so incredibly quiet, kind, and willing! He would easily be a great project for an experienced teen who wants to start/finish a young horse or someone who would just enjoy a pleasant partner for trail riding. He also has great potential for classes such as ranch riding with his easy movement and quiet demeanor. He could be one of those high-dollar geldings in the future if someone would put the finishing touches on him. I really don’t think you would find something that he wouldn’t be willing to try!
Boomer is up-to-date on all care, including vaccinations, deworming, and hoof care. He has a few scuffs and bumps from being turned out with other horses since he is low on the totem pole, but no injuries or illnesses. He is absolutely sound, but his front legs are not as straight/clean as we would prefer. Pictures are available for interested buyers. Vet checks are always welcome and encouraged at the buyer’s expense.
We do not own Boomer, but we are representing him for the older couple who own him because we have done all of his training and they do not ride. We own two of his half-siblings and have ridden/trained his mom and 4 half-siblings, so we know his family history pretty well! We have seriously considered buying this colt ourselves since he is so quiet and good-minded, but with four young kids we just don’t have the time to do him justice and ride him to his full potential. Come try him out before we change our mind!
Please contact me for additional pictures, watch his videos, and contact us any time with questions or to come meet Boomer! We would love to talk to you or set up a time to show him to you if you think he may be what you are looking for………$2,500.
