Please look at this Heel horse and let me know what you notice!!!

I am helping my dad to find a new heeling horse. He is in his 60's and has roped for over 20 years but has had bad luck with the last horse. Just too much to handle. He was not good in the box and would rear, plus he worked too much off of his front end and was a rough ride. Can you please take a look at the video of BK Poco for me and just see if you notice anything that I may have missed. Also does anyone know what sort of dispositions Poco Bueno's usually carry? Thanks much!!

BK

In my experience Poco Bueno lined horses are really level headed and great cattle horses :) My brother and I learned to ride on a gelding by Poco Bueno, and he was a very easy to be around horse. AND he's still alive and doing well at something like 37 years old... I know he's older than my brother. Anyway, he's very cowy, even after he had bad experience with cattle (gored twice while being ridden by his previous owner) and still gets excited about roping if he sees cows, even in his old age.

I can't see the vid, but his photos are cute! I'd say go check him out... I've never heard anyone have a bad experience with a Bueno colt.

He looks great and gentle. My boy has his lines and he has the BEST cow herding skills alive, and he is very loyal.

Don't claim to be an expert on cow horses, but I really liked this guy's quietness & cooperativeness.

Thank you for taking time to check him out. He is 300 miles away from where we live so it will be hard to make more than one trip to check him out. We will be able to rope off of him and ride him out too. Do you think he is working well from his hind end in the video? I can't really tell myself but it does appear that he isn't stopping on his front which is a good thing. I really like how calm he seems to be. Plus he is built like a brick "you know what" house!

He's cute don't really notice anything much about him. My current horse is a poco bueno baby his registered name is waybueno. He's a good boy, has lots of try and is a honest horse. He's very cown and very quick. I would recommend a bueno horse anyday.

Well he is slow out of the box. He does not get into position very well. However he does look very quiet and would be good for what you are looking for.

I have several Poco horse all close to PB then this one. They are level headed a bit slow learners but once they get it they have it. Make good horses for what you are looking for.

Really? Mines not far from PB himself either but he's a VERY quick learner.

He appears to be worth every penny.

I have to agree with nrhareiner. He is slow out of the box, doesn't run to the cow hard, and is way out of position. That is why the header is having to reach for his shot. He does look like a better heeling horse than a header though his stop is a little mushy when the rope comes tight. He stops on his front end and doesn't prepare for the weight.

That being said, he does look very quiet and looks like a pretty nice ride. Along with PB, he also has some Two Eyed Jack back in his lines. I love TEJ horses.
