(Update #2: Now Butter's price doubled! (a mistake the guy says) So I'm back to zero AGAIN).
Here are two I'm looking at this weekend.
I hate blind dates.
I just got the Horse and Rider with great suggestions on what to look for in your next horse.
- They have the usual tips:
- Match your energy level
- Get a vet check
- Find someone who can help you see past love at first sight
- Lope the horse.
A couple things I'm going to do:
- Lead the horse to prime cribbing targets (I had a woman try to sneak past a cribber on me)
- Try to spook
- Promise to sleep on it and
- see at least 3 horses.
On the saturday list
Stout Gelding, 15.3 h tall, well mannered, loads, ties, great for the farrier. No vices. Not a kids horse, but well trained.
- Location: Comfort
9 year old Palamino, 15.2h very muscled
Butter is a good horse with a great handle. He stands for farrier, tacking, mounting and grooming. He trailers like a pro. He is very stocky and well muscled making him suitable for all sizes of riders. He neck reins great and backs with ease. He is the type of horse you can leave in the pasture for months and then catch him and take off riding without worry. He is current on shots and worming. He also has a fresh set of shoes. I am selling him due to finacial reasons or he wouldn't be for sale. I have ridden him down trails at the river and also through town. He is a very well behaved horse and laid back, so he would make a good horse for children. He does have a good handle but he wont go any faster then you make him. You don't have to take him to the round pen to work him down before you ride him, just tack up and go. He does NOT bite, kick, rear, or buck. He has no bad habits and would make anyone a great horse.
