Also, do you have any previous experiences with barrel horses? I have a horse sired by Otoes Twistin Bueno, and knowing his owners I know that they would not sell him to just anybody, not only that, if you really did buy him and have gelded him they probably wouldn't see it fit either.

Are you totally sure your purchased these horses? I just can't see an English rider purchasing two very VERY well accomplished barrel horses without any formal training. Do you even know how to barrel race?


Do you have any current pictures of them at their new home place? I am just a little suspicious of this.

Him being gelded may have been a term of the sale... also, since he is Poco Bueno bred, he could be a carrier of HERDA, and if he was tested positive to be a carrier (he will NOT contract the disease himself) he could pass it on to his get, and if bred to another carrier, the foal could become afflicted and would have to be put down. It may be a recent thing, a foal may have shown to be afflicted, which would mean he IS a carrier.

Maybe not, maybe the owners had another stallion and couldn't manage him too, or didn't want the hassel. Kevin, a close friend of mine was planning to show and use my gelding, Spur, as a stud, but cut him because he didn't have the money to show him and prove him as a stallion, and sold him as a gelding to us, and we haven't had the papers transferred yet, so his stallion status hasn't been changed yet.

They are BOTH beautiful, however, I think I'm a little more drawn to the mare... I think because in the picture, her face looks like it may gray out, and I am a sucker for grays!

They are both beautiful. I really hope mare was not run on barrels though (and you'll hold for another couple years with her).

I am curious too. Since I have a bunch of AQHA bucks that I never use I went onto the site and see that there is no transfer from Trails End Ranch where he stands. All the pics of him are from that site. Could have been sold and transferred though and they wouldn't have the record yet. He also has 11 babies on the ground so I can't imagine he is herda since he was DNA tested. What a horrible shame if they gelded a stallion with the show record he has. Maybe his babies just weren't up to par???

I'm a bit taken aback and a bit unbelieving that you own these horses as well as are from Avalon and own Manhattan and Co... Not saying that your lying, just saying that its all a bit unbelievable.
