Talking The Sisco Kid- 16 M/O Paint Colt

So, I introduced my Ninja, here's his best bud, Sisco. He was a rescue, of sorts. His previous owner was a hoarder and the little guy was infested with lice. I use to be friends with the owner, and I'm glad I'm not anymore. Anyhow, I got him March 30 and within a week he had been bathed twice, deliced, and had a full body clip. He had, had very little handling, but was a total angel the whole time. I am so happy I have him. If not for my mad persuasion skills, there's no telling where this boy would have ended up. I bought him for the whopping price of $175. His name was Buttface when I got him. Lol. I knew very little about him, but something just drew me to him and I knew he had to be mine. He was 8 months old when I got him, about 10 hands and weighed probably 300lbs.

Since then, he has blossomed into a very nice colt. He now stands 14hh, weighs nearly 750 lbs and is living the life he always should have.
Here is my sweet, talented young man!

The day before I brought him home.




The first day home.



Day two with me. After being bathed and clipped.




A week or so later.

Thank you! He isn't perfect, but he is showing lots of potential to be a great all around horse. He has the prettiest and most naturally slow trot I have ever seen on such a young horse. I may have a decent western pleasure horse on my hands.

He's gorgeous!!! Glad he had you to give him a new home and a new lease on life!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
