He's just a trail horse. I dont show em, although he probably could be if cleaned up better. He has a nice gait on him when you get him into it.. I thought about showing him this summer if he doesnt sell. Ive been working with him on keeping his gait consistant under saddle, sometimes he tends to break into a pace and have been trying to keep him from doing it. Ive also been riding him bareback alot and did have him up forsale once.. got alot of hits, phone calls and emails and the funny thing is I had him priced higher then I do now and I havent recieved any and have had him up for about 4 days now and actually decided not to sell him because I had started riding him bareback and he was doing so well. I didnt want see him go. He's a ham and quite funny to watch when dad is out there trying to work and he's out there bugging him the whole time.

He's got a real nice build on him. I think he'd probably do well in halter and western pleasure because he's got a lower head set and would probably do well in it. There's a open show this summer and thought about getting him trained for the western pleasure, halter and entering him in the speed gait class they have.. it's a KMSHA open show. If he doesnt sell. He's got alot of potential and a nice temperment but yeah I think he'd do well in Western Pleasure. Just gotta get him trained for it lol

Lol Thanks, you guys and thanks about the property. That's why we like living in the country.. it's serene out here..:P Birds chirping, frogs croakin and crickets goin all night.. when I lived in the city.. it felt alien not to have it.

His hair was longer and thicker then that.. but I cut it because it got all nasty and tangly over the winter.

And if he does well in showing, which I believe he will, his price will only go up if I decide to put him back out on the market. I'll probably put it somewhere around 3 grand if I put him back up. Like I said though it's all up in the air, right now.. so we shall see I guess. He's got straight legs, no cow hocks or buck or calf knees, nice shoulder and a streamline, yet stocky build, like his dad. He's actually got alot of showing in his background. His dad is a show horse, runs the flags for the KMSHA and goes alot of park pleasure and gait classes, did the stallion demo this year for the Hoosier Horse fair. His grandsire was a national show horse and his greatgrandsire was an international show horse. His granddam and greatgrandsire were both show horses as well through his granddam on his father's side.

His grandsire on his father's side was BlueMan McGuire and Greatgrandsire was Toco Sam. Granddam on Father's side was Redbird her sire/his greatgrandsire was Kilburn's Chocolate Sundown. His got good bloodlines. Through his mother it's all foundation stock. Greatgrandson of Maple's Squirrel... but through his father's lines is all the show horses and it's chock full of him.. so Im hoping he's taken after his poppa since he's built just like him and will prove to be an excellent show horse.

We're also working on getting him registered too. We're getting ready to send in the paperwork and once he's registered his price will significantly go up. That's the ONLY reason why he is so cheap right now is because he's not registered. Once he is.. and can be shown, the price will go up.

He looks sweet. ^-^

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thanks. He's a nice horse. He's built like most of the foundation rockies, very thick and stocky. The biggest thing goin against him is his color.. if he were chocolate he probably would have already been sold.. but because he's sorrel it hurts him. People dont want sorrel rockies.
