Here is what the owner emailed me
Well Tubbs sounds like a great match for your kiddos. I have never ever had to get on him and tune him for the kids he is as honest as the day is long. And he gets in no hurry and would never run off with anyone. He is not barn sour or buddy sour. We have ridden him at rodeos in traffic, noise banners etc and he is a good boy. My timid 6 year old has ridden him and he really gained confidence on him and moved on to another horse with a little more spunk. Tubbs will lope however he is not that lazy but would never run away with anyone. I think that would just take too much energy on his part LOL. WE have him barefoot right now because we are not riding him that much but when we did haul him a bunch we kept shoes on him as we do all our horses. He can get a little ouchy on rocks. He is up to date on coggins and shots but has not had his teeth done. He holds his weight wonderful and just eats 1 scoop of Safechoice pelleted twice a day feed and pasture. He is a good hay eater also. He really has no vices the only we have found is that he hates electric clippers but you can clip him it just takes time. Our price on him is somewhat negotiable and the only thing I would consider trading for him is a barrel or roping prospect. Weanling to 4 years old paint or quarter horse. If you have any other questions let me know.

What are you wanting to do with him?

Kids horse..maybe playdays, trailrides no showing or anything like that.

I personally think he's adorable! Sounds like a fun horse to ride but safe enough for the kids :) $1800 isn't bad either for a good kid safe horse either in my opinion! And I LOVE his color :)

As a kid's horse I would be jumping on him. I would just make sure he gets vetted to make sure they arent selling him for something they just don't want to care him for. Verify in detail why they are selling him.

If he is as described I say snag him up. A good safe solid kids horse is worth their weight in gold.
    12-09-2009, 12:53 PM
I agree, grab him if he passes a vet check. A horse like that is wonderful :)

Normally I would say that $1,800 is a lot for a grade 18 year old but if they are accurate in their assessment, he could be well worth it. Finding a horse that is truly a safe, beginner horse is like gold. Certainly worth the ride to see and try him. Just be sure to get there well in advance of your appointed time so that he isn't worked before you arrive.

He is 5 hours from here so I would do the vet check at the same time as the visit. Good idea about showing up early. She said his price is negotiable. I bet I could get him for $1500. The only thing that I didn't like about him is that he holds his head up higher than I would like while being ridden. Don't know what that is about.

Did yall look a the video? Cutest thing I have ever seen with that little guy on top of him.

His color is just a plus.

I just am not sure if I can talk my husband into it.
