8 year old gelding for sale.

I am helping a friend of mine sell her 8 year old gelding. Currently he is at my place putting on a little more weight, he was just a tad bit under from winter when I brought him home.

He is current on his shots, and has a negative coggins.
He has the application to be registered with the Pinto registry.
He stands roughly 14.2, maybe 14.3 hands. Petite build, like an arab build.

Montana is his name, he is quite a sweet horse though he does need some work on him. He loves people and would not try and hurt anyone intentionally. He is a little spooky which I am currently working on desensitizing him and he is learning very quick. Montana was sent out as a 2 year old for saddle training, he only went out for 30 days before being sent home. He was NOT sent home due to bad manners or anything like that, he was just so small/petite that the trainer recommended more "growing" time before he was ridden/trained further. They did all of his ground work, were riding him as well. I do not believe they had rode him out of the round pen but I could be wrong.
Anyhow after the 30 days he came back to his owners and became a pasture pet the last 6 years. He just turned 8 this month.

Since I have had him here he has been good, a few issues with trusting me, and getting spooked. For example when I go to pick up his hind feet he will step away from me, not letting me pick them up. I have been working with him on this and can for the most part get his front feet picked up without to much trouble but I still can't get him to let me get his hind feet picked up.
He does have great feet on him however.
Flies are coming around and I have discovered he freaks out pulling away from you with the fly spray, he has never reared or kicked at me but he does pull away. I have done one short session with a spray bottle and water and he was starting to stand still before my sprayer quit on me.
We have had him saddled and bridled, I have walked and trot him in the round pen with both on and he was great. We have not been up on his back just yet.

Any other questions feel free to ask me, he really is a sharp looking boy, is perfect size for a ladies or kids horse once fully trained. They are asking $400 for him, I will continue working with him so long as he is here.
