Java is an approx 12 year old grade Grulla quarter horse. He is a working cow horse from Montana. I have not worked him on cows, but I there are cows where I board him at & I can tell he knows what to do. Will go up & down steep hills, cross water, never refuses anthing I have ever asked of him. Beautiful thick dorsal stripe, zebra striping on his legs withers & ears! He's about 15hh. He is a very beautiful horse, has great ground manners. He will stand tied for hours without moving.... (read more) He lunges like a dream, respects your space, pivots his hindquarters easily. He can be a little bossy under saddle, nothing major, just requires a rider that knows what they are doing. He does great if ridden or worked every couple of days. He would be best with an intermediate rider & up. VERY sensitive to leg pressure, responds to the slightest touch. Neck reins, side passes, roll backs, pivots his hindquarters. He does have some arthritis in his left hind hip, its not bad at all. I can barely tell he has it. He has been started on gaming patterns & does very well, but if you want to game with him, I would suggest getting injections in his hips. He rides out alone, doesn't care if its pitch black out. He doesn't spook at anything I have done a TON of desentizing work with him. We have even been galloping down the trail & had a cat jump out of the corn stalks from us & he didn't even bat an eye. He is low man on the totem pole in the pasture & keeps to himself. He does better on 24 hour hay, or at least good quality hay several times a day. When I 1st got him he was about 200 lbs underweight & I have worked VERY hard at getting his weight back up. He does good on grain once a day too, I've been using Dynstany Pride which is a complete feed. I love this horse very much so I will be very picky about where he goes. I just don't have the time for him anymore with my new winter project. Tons of pictures available! I can also get videos for those that are interested.
