*Sold* Gorgeous buckskin with a heart of gold!
*Sold* Thank you to the many, many people who inquired about Loki but he has found an amazing home. Congratulations Cody!
If you have been searching for a fantastic horse with a beautiful heart, who will bond deeply and is a joy to ride, we just happen to have one of the cutest little buckskins ever that we are looking for a great home for. Loki is one of those horses with a super huge personality, who loves everyone, is always happy, playful and curious and loves to have a job to do.
He is an absolutely gorgeous 8 year old dappled buttermilk buckskin with a babydoll face, who gets darker and even more beautiful in his winter coat. He has great conformation for a long and healthy riding future. He's the kind of horse you get noticed on. He stands somewhere around 14.3. He is registered with the AQHA and his registered name is Lightning Cran Bar, you can see his full pedigree on allbreedpedigree. His bloodlines include names like Cody, King, Wimpy, Freckles, and Leo. He is bred for a wonderful disposition as well as some speed!
Loki does have a big motor to go with his big personality. He is fast and if you ask him to go he is more than happy to do so, but he does have a great stop and does not bolt or run off with you. Loki neck reins, and also has a great quick turn, and a great back up. His previous owner used him causally to work cows, go trail riding and even went hunting with him. He said he'd done a little bit of everything with him. He is a wonderful trail horse and a blast to go out exploring on. He will not run off with you and will walk if you ask him to and stands patiently when you stop. He will happily go wherever you point and is not spooky.
I think Loki would be wonderful for a confident teenage rider or someone who is really looking for a best friend and a true heart connection. He is an awesome trail horse and will go through, into or over whatever you point him at. He is extremely bright and learns quickly once he has formed a bond with you. He loves to learn new things but can get bored just riding slow circles in the pasture so I don't think he'd enjoy or do well at western pleasure. He likes to have a job to do or something to learn and he has a huge heart and a whole lot of try.
Loki does not buck, bolt, rear, kick, bite, or pull back when tied. He is sound and healthy with an up to date coggins. He leads, loads and hauls great and is good about his feet. He likes to be right with you, helping you with whatever you're doing, which means he's also very easy to catch and he will happily follow you anywhere! He has good hard feet and is a pretty easy keeper. He rides well in a snaffle or Tom Thumb bit.
Loki really does have some speed and is very responsive to cues so he would do best with a confident rider who also enjoys going and in that respect he would not be best as a beginner's horse. The only negative thing I can really say about him is that he can sometimes get kind of antsy just walking slow circles around and around our small pasture without a job to do. This is not at all an issue on the trails however. I've been working on improving his headset and he has gotten much better about collection but still has a little way to go in cementing this in at all gaits.
Loki will stand for hours just hanging out with you and he has completely stolen my heart so I am going to be pretty particular in that he will only be sold to someone who is looking for a heart connection, a partner and best friend and not just good horse flesh to use. He is a wonderful companion who will bond deeply as well as a super fun, happy and excellent riding partner to make some fabulous memories with; I don't think you could do much better. It is hard to feel depressed around this guy because he just really enjoys life and it’s catchy.
Loki will only be sold to a loving, approved home that is a good match. (I reserve the right to refuse any sale I do not feel will be a good match for either you or Loki). I will be honest with you so please be honest with me about your riding abilities and what you're looking for don't be offended if I ask some questions. Please no trade offers or people who can't actually buy a horse until they sell theirs. It probably goes without saying, don't even bother to inquire if you are a rough, tough, 'show 'em who's boss' type. Loki has a delightful innocence, a huge and willing heart and has such a love for people I do not want to see him ruined by that sort of handling.
Email is the best way to reach me since I don't keep my phone on me when I'm out with the horses. It will be answered promptly. Please let me know something about you in the email. If you want to talk and you fit my criteria please feel free to call my mother at 501-548-1327. Thanks!
Loki recently threw a shoe when we went on a trail ride and bruised his frog so we took the ad down and gave him some days off to for it to heal. He seems to be doing better so we are ready to show him again, so for everyone who expressed interest before, he is now ready for you to meet! We will guarantee him sound after it heals.
