GSR Daddys Diamond, "Juno"
Boy O Boy x Diamonds N Things (sire and dam on All Breed)
1994 Bay AQHA Registered Quarter Horse mare, approx. 15 hh. Western broke, neck reins, however, has not been ridden solidly in two years and offered to buck when pushed to move out on her own (see below for more info). Unknown past - a prior owner purchased from auction kill pen. Up to date on farrier, vaccines, floats, dewormings.... (read more) Good ground manners. Laid back, quiet personality. Has not trailered in two years but was good for load/unload when purchased. $300, negot.
- BROKE, initially purchased as a beginners horse and rode very well when tried prior to purchase. She does neck rein. HOWEVER, Juno has very little confidence and will not move out on her own. When I tried to push her with a light smack on the butt, she bucked. I am able to get her to move forward somewhat with urging but, because of this, I can't say she's beginner friendly. Prior owner used her on trails and she followed other horses without a problem. It's my feeling she would be a very strong leadline horse or may even be a fabulous beginners horse with some attention to whatever the issue may be (poorly fit saddle? arthritis? chiropractic care?).
- Up to date on trims, vaccines, floats, dewormings. Has not needed shoes while in my care. Stands well for vet and farrier.
- Juno potentially has a small amount of arthritis as she seems to be a little stiff on chilly mornings but has not been evaluated by a vet. She has never been lame while in my care. She has never needed any meds or supplements. She is an extremely easy keeper.
- Currently on 24/7 turnout - does well. Stalled when needed due to weather but not often.
- Familiar with dogs, poultry and has a llama as a buddy!
- I'm unsure of her history as she came through the Eugene auction prior to my purchasing her. She had been bred in the past and had a foal at her side when she went through an earlier auction (she was purchased through an initial auction for her foal then taken to Eugene to be re-sold). A google search of her name will reveal her auction page ("Koko") and limited history (http://www.auctionhorses.org/horse.asp?hoID=310). I believe she had two short-term owners prior to making her way to me.
- Juno is an intelligent, gentle-hearted soul who's very well behaved when given attention but mostly loves her grass and quiet time. She's very easy to saddle and ties well. I've only ever ridden her in a halter or gentle hackamore. She enjoys a good brushing or rub down but will occasionally shy away with her face. I have not tried to bathe her so unsure how she'd respond. She's a little slow to trust but once it's there, she's very easy to catch.
- Reason for sale: Unfortunately, my husbands job is taking us back to the east coast and I cannot take her. She is FAMILY and I plan to do my best to ensure she goes to an experienced, loving home with an owner who's a good match for her. It breaks my heart to have to find this older lady yet another home, but I know there's a good soul out there who will continue loving on her.
- Location: Beavercreek, OR. Unable to deliver, do not have trailer. Trailered well when delivered two years back.
- Asking $300, but can be further discussed with potential home
