Coming 3 y/o Shire gelding for sale, B.C., Canada
This has been a very difficult decision for me, but after much, much careful deliberation I have decided to put my coming 3 year old Shire gelding, TJ, up for sale. Please contact me via PM or email for price as I am extremely negotiable to the perfect home. This is a truly incredible, one-of-a-kind horse who will do great things with the right owner. Only reason for selling is that we just don't "click" and it would be selfish of me to keep him when we're both unhappy.

TJ is a very quiet, easy going fellow with no health problems and is UTD on all vet/farrier work. No vices. Easy keeper, does fine both alone and in a group, excellent ground manners; ties, leads, ground drives, stands for vet and farrier, bathes, loads and hauls like a dream, pony's off of other horses, trots in-hand, has been led extensively on roads and through all kinds of trails [up and down mountains, over/around/under obstacles, through water, etc.], couldn't ask for a more safe horse on the road and trails. He has been taken down to the beach and went right into the ocean without a moments hesitation.

Stands at about 16.2hh. He turns 3 in August. I believe he is Black Sabino, though we have not sent any tests in yet. He is incredibly gentle and with further training and a few years of maturity on him he could be a fantastic kid/husband/family horse. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body but can be stubborn and is a little "slow" to catch on sometimes, so requires someone with patience and consistency. He will go anywhere you point him to go. Very forgiving and trustworthy.

PM or email for more information:

Pictures coming in a few minutes!

What is it that makes you guys "not click"?

^ I think we just have very different personalities. He is a great horse but I just don't have the skills/experience to bring him to his full potential.

Man, if you were closer, he would already be at my place!!!! (and what a great deal for all the equipment too!!!) He is gorgeous and would make a great driving/riding buddy for me!!!! I even have the wagons! Do you have any video's of him? I would love to see his movement! Also is he registered or registerable?
