"The reason I bought Drummer was because he is absolutely
the kind of horse that makes a true trailer horse. This guy
has got that wonderful, kind, sweet, temperament and a
smooth gait to go with it. When he sees you coming, he comes a
running and will accept your petting and conversation for as
long as you wish to share it with him. Drummer has not yet
reached his adult body weight but he is putting it on fast.
Take him to any trail or parking lot, unload him and
go.......he is not a project! He stands now at 15.1 hands
high and may gain another inch. Don't let your perception
get in the way of coming and riding this guy. You will be
thrilled you did!
"ROCK-A-BYE-BABIE is her name and you
gotta love that! Babie is what we call her and as sweet as
she is, how could we call her anything else? Triple
registered......Rocky Mountain Horse Association, The
Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse Association and American
Gaited Mountain Horse. But as we all know you can't ride
papers but ya can ride this fine mare if you can climb up in
the saddle. My good friend and long time associate who is
also a farrier has offered to buy Babie over the last
several years. A very recent phone call saying they had
something come up and Babie was going to be offered for sale
and you are the first one to know about it. Well, when it
came time to load Babie up in a trailer my associate looked
over at the family and everyone was crying. I quick
reassurance was made that if they changed their minds Babie
could be unloaded from the trailer and there would be no
hard feelings. Again the comment was made that something had
come up and Babie needed another loving home. I'll get you
some more photos and videos of her under saddle but don't
bank on this sweetheart being here for very long. Riding is
believing. Dapples......did you see her dapples?"
"I had nothing to do with naming this fine horse, but I will
back him 100% that he is indeed.............FINE! Yes, this
Cookie horse is a horse a beginner on up, can safely ride.
About as easy of horse to get along with as there is. I
can't help but think how many women would love to have this
Cookie for their husband to ride but I certainly don't limit
Cookie to just novice riders. A little over 15 hands but
stout, with good bone. Gaits so very easily.....power glide
transmission..........smooth! The fellow who owned him
before did some trick riding off from him and it is
understandable how a person could do that with a horse like
Cookie. In one of the videos posted we have Cookie going
through the oak brush. Imagine, if you will, having no
britches on and running through that type of terrain without
some visible reluctance! (It would be good advice to consult
with your lover before doing so!) When I say this Cookie
horse will go where ya point him, I mean he will go most
anywhere. I have no doubt what-so-ever, that you could
retrace the Santa Fe or Oregon Trails on Cookie and complete
the journey, even in the world today. Ponder that statement
if you will!"
I am not sure I can explain how great this horse is better
than the photos and videos that I have posted. Don't just
stop and presume Sunset is all just good looks. This boy is
the kind we all want and that is that sweet disposition and
willingness to do what is being asked of him. There is no
insecurity in this guy. He can lead or follow. Throw a
saddle on him and GO! Sunset reminds me of a time ten years
ago or so, I was in Tennessee attending a Spotted Saddle
Horse Association Show. In the Halter Class competition, a
young man brought out a perhaps two year old that looks most
similar to Sunset. Within minutes the crowd became silent as
all eyes were on this handsome young horse. A voice shouted
out, "I'll give ya $5,000 fir him!" And immediately after
another offer was made. The show ring announcer said, "Take
it outside folks" and I know the young man was offered
$7,500 that night for his young palomino and white.
Remember, this young horse wasn't even broke to saddle yet.
So, what is the worth of a horse like Sunset? Well, I am
sure more than what I am about to ask and that is $8,000.
Now you come ride this boy and you tell me if I am asking to
much. Even if he were a dirty grey, he'd be worth what I am
asking. Sweet, kind and gentle....rides like he was twenty
years old. Not kidding.
"Ya gotta watch the videos on this one to start to
appreciate. Come throw a leg over him and ride Black Jack on
the trail to fully appreciate. Black Jack has been used for
the last few years in a riding club. Members fought over who
would get to ride him, and before and after rides, he was
the crowd favorite to plain ol' love-on! This guy will put
his head right on your shoulders! Black Jack's momma is a
registered Rocky Mountain Horse colored red-chocolate. After
momma had two red-chocolate foals the owner wanted something
different in color and breed to a jet black registered
Tennessee Walker stallion. So, Black Jack is black in the
winter months but in short, summer hair, the sun has done
it's job of bleaching. His style, grace, manners and
movement under saddle put him right up there on the top of
the list for attractiveness and at the top of the list for
safe and enjoyable as well! Watch the videos and you'll see
what I mean. If the smile on your face after viewing the
photos and videos last longer than four hours, no need to
consult with your doctor.........it would be expected!!"
"Southern Art! I am not sure if this horse was named after
artwork or as a name usually referring to a male. Here is
what Wikipedia says about the word, art. "Art is a diverse
range of activities in creating visual, auditory or
performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author's
imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated
for their beauty or emotional power."
Well, however you want to go with this name Art, I can tell
you he is a very good Art. And certainly his looks and
motion while moving are a form of art. Now when I took these
videos of Manual riding Southern Art, he had only been to
his new home in New Mexico (Twin Ponds Ranch) for less than
24 hours. Unfortunately he has been stalled up for two and a
half weeks prior because of our transport company being
involved in a bad accident and we had to find a different
transport company. After that, he was on another transport
trailer for two days and then with only a short rest we had
him saddled up and trail riding. Now, let's be honest. Not
many horses could pull that off without a fuss or much more?
This Southern Art is a saddle horse and knows when it is
time to go to work and what is expected of him when asked.
Southern Art's color is beyond unique but without question
stunningly handsome. I would call his color as a milk
chocolate roan & white tobiano. His tail nearly touches the
ground and it is pure white and so thick you could hide a
basketball in it! Perhaps I should say he is a rare art
form! Stout build and able to carry a large person and gear."
Dawson is a 11 year old milk chocolate
roan with white mane and tail. Big stout boy with smooth,
graceful gaits, and lots of trail experience. Beautiful
gentle horse with a gorgeous head and big kind eyes.
" No Drama Momma is what we call her.
Ellie is her real name. Here is a great family horse. Big
enough for Dad and Mom, 15.1, and gentle enough for the
kids. Trailer her up and unload her any where you
wish....she'll ride like she has been there many times
before. At twelve years of age and consistently ridden since
she was broke at three, she is experienced and it shows. No
marish tendencies have we ever seen out of her. Most folks
today are busy, busy and don't have time to fool around with
a horse when they can finally get away and enjoy a ride.
This is why we call her, No Drama Momma. Come throw a leg
over her and let's head to the mountains. It will be an
