I've come to realize, as someone who is almost twenty, if I ever hope to live on my own many of my horses need to go to new homes.
So, the two that I could 'bare' to live without is my two boys.
Solid Choice Okie, APHA Solid bred three year old gelding. love.jpg
Willing to please, lunges, stands tied, has done some ground driving, sound, desensitized on the verge of being "bomb" proof when it comes to the ground. I have been on his back, but never in movement. (This boy can do way more than what I listed)
With the right person I think he would be easy to start! Love this boy, but he just deserves more attention

Also very willing to please, a true gentleman even as a two year old colt. Lunges beautifully in the roundpen, knows to transition from a walk to a trot and back down on command. Stands tied, trots off the lead on command, aware of personal space. I haven't had the time to work with him nearly as much as the three year old! But he can learn.
Both stand "beautifully" for the farrier, though it may take a good farrier to get use to them. Before I got Okie he had a bad experience with a farrier, he consistently acts a little stupid for my farrier but has slowly gotten better to where he stands almost still, the last few times he was done he was a very good boy. (He use to fall over it was so bad.) Nix has gotten his feet done since he was six months old! He stands still once he knows he can't get away, and by get away I mean he thinks he can walk on three legs.
They have faults but mostly because I can't get around to work with them. These boys deserve 1000x times better then I can give them. I work all day, and when I get home its dark. Both could excel in anything! Phoenix shows a lot of interest in cows and Okie could go where ever you wished.
What I need help on, is how do I decide what to sell them for? I can't just go off what I think they are worth to me, both are priceless in my eyes.
