Coal - Gentle Draft Cross Gelding -SOLD congratulations to Casey Gaines, Washington
Coal is a 8 year old draft cross gelding. He is a very solid boy standing at just over 16'1 and weighing in at about 1300 pounds. He has great feet, solid bone and is sound. He ties, trailers, hobbles, crosses water and has packed and been on the high line for back country pack trips. In the arena, he walk, trot and lopes, moves off leg, and does various obstacle work, he has a good foundation but is not finished. He is super sweet, wants to please and gets along well with others. He has ponied other horses, is used regularly to guide trail rides as the guide horse and is legged up and ready to go! For the first several years of his life he sat around and did nothing so he is coming along nicely but because he is continuing his education, he would do best with a confident rider and we would not recommend a beginner rider. He is a laid back guy and really excels out on the trail, in the mountains and packing/horse camping. He trailers well, bathes, and ties. Give him a little time and he is going to be one in a million! $6500
SKIP - The Husband Horse and Trail Horse Extraordinaire- Sold Congratulations to Ann Merkle, California
Skip is a 20 year YOUNG Paint gelding, he is a big boy standing at about 15'3". He has been my son's horse and used in our trail ride string for the past three years. He is an excellent trail and horse camping horse, he hobbles, crosses water, etc. he has ponied a pack animal several times, stands tied to the picket line all night, he is tough, safe and sound! During our heavy pack trip season he wears shoes on the front only but the rest of the year he goes barefoot. He has only had 2 owners in his lifetime and sadly my son is so busy with hockey that we figured it was time for Skip to move on and become someone else's trail riding buddy. He has many years left and is in truly excellent health. He is UPD on dental, vaccinations and worming and has never had any health or soundness issues. He lives with our herd but in the dude string he does like his space. He does not love working in the arena but excels out on the trail, he is a very safe trail horse! A good home is an absolute must and I will not sell him as an arena horse, he has been riding on the trail his whole life and that is the only job I would like him to continue on with. $2800 firm.
PAISLEY - SOLD Congratulations to Camilla Merkle, California
Paisley is 14 years old and in excellent health. She has been a family horse for the past several years and has taught both the older and younger daughter (4 years old) to ride. The older daughter now is ready to move on to a different horse so we have had the great fortune to use Paisley for this past year both in the lesson program but also in the guided trail ride program. She has been a valuable asset this year but it is time for her to find her place in another loving family. Paisley stands about 14'3" and is completely UPD on all vaccinations, worming and dental. She has great feet and has had no soundness issues. She does have a windswept RH that she was born with and to date hasn't given her any trouble. She is amazingly smooth to ride at all gates. She is not marish and gets along well with others, trailers, ties, good for the farrier, etc. This past year she went on a pack trip where she hobbled, tied to a picket line and rode in some beautiful country. She will continue with the lesson and trail program until she is sold. $5000
