Let me start by saying it kills me to see him go but I'm moving to Boston this summer & I can't take my horses with me. An excellent home is a must. I want my boys to find perfect homes, so I will be 100% honest with you about both of my horses; feel free to ask me anything.
Rhett is the coolest horse I've ever owned. He's a 16-year-old roan & we aren't sure what breed he is but we believe he's quite a bit mustang. He stands a little less than 15hh.... (read more) He's very well-mannered, loves attention, loads, hauls, ties, bathes, good for farrier & vet. No major health issues, easy keeper but never been foundered. He will come right up to you in the field (always the first horse to the gate.) Parade experience, wagon train experience, Rhett is pretty much up for anything you want to do & can be ridden by himself or in a group. Not spooky. Walk/trot/canter great. I have never had any trouble keeping weight on him, never had to use supplements or anything. Loyal, loyal, loyal (he loves his owner! If you're out doing pasture repairs, he will most likely be right beside you "helping"). I have never had shoes on him since I've had him. I've had him 5 years & he's never bucked, kicked, reared, or bit anyone in that time so I consider him very trustworthy. He is a roan & changes color throughout the year which is pretty fun to see. I always get lots of compliments on him.
This horse loves trail riding! I like to ride him through fields out in the country where I live, & he will scan the tree line looking for deer trails. If he can't find a trail, he will make one. Water, logs, fields, woods, he loves it all. He is so fun to ride. He neck reins & I have ridden him bareback quite a bit. Likes going new places, always excited to get in the trailer & go somewhere new.
Rhett isn't one of those horses that needs to be in constant work to stay ridable. He can go weeks or even months between rides & will still be a good boy. First ride of the spring after a long winter is just as easy as any of his other rides.
One thing about Rhett is that he is bossy & will probably be the leader of your horse herd but he isn't pushy with humans. I've had him since 2009 & he's never so much as pinned his ears at me.
Rhett's ideal home would be people who like to trail ride a lot. I'd really like to see him go to a retired couple who actually go camping & things like that because he'd be in heaven. I would trust a beginner on him but I'd like to see him go to a home with people who have owned horses before (only because I know first-time horse owners make a lot of mistakes & I love this boy too much to do that.) I also don't want to see him go to a place where he's cooped up in a stall all the time. He's used to 24 turnout most of the year & he's happy that way. He is up to date on shots, wormer, & hooves & ready to find his new home.
I went through several horses to get to this guy, & he's truly my dream horse. I hate so much to part with him but my loss is your gain! I have all the way until summer to find him his dream home, so be warned, I will be picky with potential buyers! ;) If he sounds like your perfect horse, message me!
