We had a half way spot to drop off my colt for the trainer, so he could be picked up on Charles's way back from a show he was judging. Turns out, I knew the barn owner and he let me ride a couple of his horsemen. Being his nature, he bragged about each and every horse in his barn.
He showed my parents a gelding while I was getting Dusty set up in his temporary stall. I got to see him after we were done riding, and OMG. Perfect. Horse. Ever. I'm always talking about how I want a sorrel, I'm tired of giving baths that take hours. But, I have always wanted a horse that had high whites and a blaze. He is the image to a T. He was huge in all directions, probably a tad over weight lol, about 15.2 hands, appeared to have great legs and feet (other than being tender after throwing a shoe, so I couldn't ride him). I feel like a 5 year old gawking over a rainbow unicorn. He was just amazing looking...plus it's not like I could do a whole lot with him to tell anything about him:P
Looks aside, he is 10 years old and is an accomplished reiner and working cow horse...he went the AQHA world a few years ago, I think he made it into the finals. He's done a bit of sorting but the owner doesn't want to screw him up in the pen. I think this horse is perfect for me as a step up horse, but also to help with Dusty. I need to know what a professional Reiner FEELS like, so I know and can help Dusty, instead of hold him back.
My friend Kasey has ridden him before and absolutely loves him, she was going to buy him a couple years back but couldn't afford him. The guy has since dropped his price and Kasey has lots interest in him.
My parents are actually VERY interested in him. This horse is a total sweet heart and was nuzzling up my dad and actually made him smile. I think he'd also be a good horse to be turned out with Rosie, all the others beat her up, he doesn't look like the kind to chase her around for hours.
