1} COCHISE — 2008 PALOMINO GELDING. Grade gelding.
Cochise is a very solid paint gelding. He is attractive, sound and very ‘broke’. He has been ridden by many riders and all have loved him. We have used him quite a bit as a wrangler / guide horse. He likes people, is easy to catch and has absolutely no bad habits. He loads, ties, bathes, stands perfectly still for mounting, leads other horses and goes anywhere you point his head. Cochise can go months without riding and you can just catch him and ride him off like he was ridden yesterday.
He stands 15.1 and weighs approximately 1100#. For sale for $4500.00
2 } BUSTER — 2005 ROAN PINTO GELDING. Sire: Belgian draft stallion. Dam: Missouri Fox Trotter mare.
This is a big, stout, good-looking gelding. Buster stands 16 hands and weighs about 1450#. He has excellent bone, straight legs, a good back and a lot of muscle. He is gaited with a natural Fox Trot that he got from his registered Missouri Fox Trotter mother. He will walk flat footed so he can ride with Quarter Horses, etc and he can be gaited out and travel fast with other gaited horses. He DOES NOT trot and canters out when asked. This is a strong gelding that can carry a big rider all day. He has easily and safely carried 250# – 300# riders all day. He has really good legs and feet. He should stay sound forever.
He has great manners. He loads, ties, shoes, hauls without a single problem ever. He is an easy keeper and easy to keep. He will stand quietly behind a single strand of hot wire.
He is an absolutely solid trail horse. He has perfect manners and will go anywhere for any rider. He is sound and healthy and ready to go.
3} BUCKSHOT — 6 Year old dark buckskin gelding. Sire: Drifter (AQHA War Chiefs Pride). Dam: A quarter Pony mare that we used for several years for children for lessons. Full brother to BUBBA (number 4 below).
He, like his brother, is home-raised, very gentle and easy to get along with. He has been ridden by several different people and has worked well for all of them. He has a little bigger motor than his little brother and is bigger — just over 15 hands. [So much for raising Quarter Ponies! Call it a failed experiment.] He is not yet as ‘finished’ as most of the trail horses we sell because Cheri can no longer train them due to severe back problems. He still rides ‘two-handed’ but goes everywhere, is sure footed and very confident. He will ‘booger’ sometimes but is not hard to ride. He is a very ‘aware’ horse and not a dead-head so may not fit a beginner rider. The 75 year old rider shown here has ridden him many miles in rugged country. He is big, sound and solid and can carry a big rider every single day — all day. He has the best feet and bone you can put on a horse. His price will also go up as he gets more ‘handle’ and gets to work cattle.

This is ‘LEFTY’, a good looking bay filly with excellent conformation, sound and very correct in every way. She is named ‘Lefty’ because of her partial white pastern on her left front leg. This is the only easy way to tell her from her 3/4 sister, RIGHTY, listed below.
Lefty is a very well-made attractive mare with excellent conformation. She is absolutely correct and sound in every way.
Lefty was ridden quite a bit last year. She was ridden another month this year by professional horseman, Ben Wright (who starts many colts for NRCHA trainers). She rides very gentle and is easy to get along with. She has had a lot of ranch riding out in the pasture as well as arena riding. She is a good mover, smooth gaited and athletic. She is a very good ‘Extreme Trail’ or AQHA ‘Trail Challenge’ prospect. She is very suitable for a ‘project horse’ for the novice trainer / rider. She is laid back, easy going and ‘user friendly’. She could take a rider ‘all the way’ in the AQHA Ranch division, the ranch or stock horse shows or the foundation shows. the AQHA ranch division, the Stock Horse shows or the Foundation Shows. She is a natural ‘stopper’. She is shod and currently being trail ridden in the Arbuckle Mountains by one of our apprentice trainers. She has gone endless trail miles in very rough country with her, by herself and with other horses. She rides like she is 5 or 6 years old. She is priced very reasonably. SOLD

Righty is a very well-made attractive mare with excellent conformation. She is absolutely correct and sound in every way.
She is also very well-started and rides gentle but has a bit bigger motor and makes some very athletic moves. She already has a pretty good ‘turn-around’ and is a nice reining, cowhorse prospect for the ranch and Foundation shows or a nice roping prospect. She is also smooth gaited and a natural ‘stopper’. She was started last year. Then, she was ridden a month by Ben Wright, professional trainer that starts many colts for NRC?HA trainers. She is now being ridden on the trails in the Arbuckle Mountains by one of our apprentice trainers. She is already a very nice trail horse and a good ‘pasture’ horse for checking fences and cattle. She is very suitable for someone that is a pretty experienced rider to take on as a ‘project horse’. She is not quite as laid back as Lefty, but is safe and not ‘bronchy or spooky at all.
We would really like to see this nice young mare go to a show home. She is a show prospect. SOLD

He still rides ‘two-handed’ but goes everywhere, seldom ever spooks at all and never spooks ‘big’. He is 14.2 1/2. [A tiny bit too tall or register in the Quarter Pony Registry. Did I mention that this was a failed experiment?] He is pretty, very well made, completely sound and really gentle. His black dorsal stripe, jet black mane and tail and zebra stripes make him a real eye-catcher. He is a really SOLID trail horse. This is a really gorgeous gelding.
