10 year old near 'bomb-proof' big sorrel gelding

I am going to sell 'Red'. His AQHA Registered name is Reos Dashin Home. He is too nice of a horse to just make a trail string horse out of. He just rides too good and is too close to bomb-proof.

We have had him since last fall and he has not made a bad move under saddle. He never gets 'fresh', never needs longed or round-penned (doubt he knows how), never boogers at anything -- even stuff that should booger him. He is 100% sound, has perfect feet and legs, is easy to catch, easy to shoe, hauls in anything, goes anywhere you point his head, rides equally well by himself or with other horses.

He is pretty lazy, does not have any 'quick' moves, does not have a lot of 'handle'; he is just one of the safest horses we have ever had. He is a perfect 'husband horse' for a non-horsey, non-riding big man. He can carry a 250#+ man all day. He has a 'decent' jog but has about the smoothest lope you will ever sit on.

He had been used on a ranch for 3 or 4 years before I got him and he had hundreds of yearlings roped and doctored from his back. He will pull hard off of the saddle-horn and has loaded a lot of cattle into a stock trailer out in the pasture. The guy that had him hated him -- said he was not 'cowey' enough and was too slow. I traded him a really nice cutting-bred horse that was a 'scorpion' and would never make a horse that novice riders could ride but he really likes him and I like Red. It's he!! To get old and helpless.

While I have ridden Red and used him now for several months, it has just become very clear to me that someone 'needs' him.

If he sounds like he would fit someone's needs, get in touch with me.

We are asking $3500.00 for him and guarantee him to be 100% solid and sound.

I will try to get a picture in here of him, but I am not sure I can do it right.

I know a guy who's needing a big gentle gelding to use in his feedlot. He's not a serious horseman, just needs a nice horse to use. I just have to hunt up his number. Nice horse!

He's quite the horse! If I was in the market for one, I'd be houndin' ya.

How tall is he?

Cherie, how old is he? I'm looking for something solid & steady for a youth student. They are looking for a lifelong family horse, something the boy can use for 4-H and that grandma can trail ride. Whatever they purchase will live at my place and I can do tune ups to keep consistent. Think he might fit the bill?

He is 10 years old.

He stands 15.1 - 15.2. He is big -- big enough to carry a big man all day.

He would work very well in a feedlot. Works gates good and lets you use a rope or a whip from his back. Never going to be 'catty' or quick. He has absolutely NO COW in him. You have to do the directing -- which he is more than happy to comply with.

I am not sure how good a 4-H horse he would be. I would not consider him a very good prospect. His best point would be that he is very safe. He does not lope circles very well but lopes across the pasture for miles. He does not have enough impulsion to micro-manage very well.

He has always been ridden with spurs and 'cowboy' ridden to a job. I could see him getting very irritated and sour trying to do lots of little technical things with a child pecking him in the ribs.

Trail riding, checking cattle, pastures and fences or feedlot riding would be much more suited to him.

Thanks for the straight answer. That's refreshing these days.

Good luck finding him the right home!

BarrelWannabe -- You would love his papers but hate the horse.

He has 'On The money Red' on his papers and has sons of Three Bars and Dash for Cash on them. He was bred for the barrels but 'flunked out' badly. I think 2 different trainers tried him and threw in the towel on him. (They gotta want to run.)

He is the perfect trail-string horse, but it is just such a waste to put him there peermanently. I have one I have had for 12 years and two others I've had for 10 and I am sure he would work perfectly there for the next 10 - 15 years. Just such a waste.

Man, he sounds perfect for me. I really, really wish I had the means to get him.
