Mr. Dibs (aka Moose) is about 10 years old. Has spent most his life as a pack horse. He has been green broke to ride, but needs more training to be a safe ride. He is not for a beginner rider/trainer. His personality is friendly, can walk right up to him and halter him up in a big paddock. He has big good strong feet, no shoes needed. He has great footing over obstacles,spooks in place well, seems to have been well sacked out so most things don't seem to bother him. He is a nice dark bay with a solid build. His mind is more Percheron (sensitive to insult, curious, unties knots)yet his quarter horse shows though as well. He loves his face pet, picks up feet good, trailers fine (does not back out well). He is strong and can go all day with energy to spare.
I bought him this fall with the impression he was both a saddle and pack horse who just needed some buddy sour work. Turns out he has had very little saddle training (and needs to be started from the beginning if you want a good saddle horse. If you want a pack horse he is ready today. I would not mind training him, but I got a mustang recently and I do not have time to train two horses. I like her personality more, so Mr. Dibs needs to find a place he will fit in better and have a job to do. We had a lump removed from his leg last fall, it was a small spot of cancer, but it looked (and continues to look) like the entire spot was removed. BTW he is very good for the vet. Recently wormed and vaccinated. I will be working with him this week on basic training refreshers now that I have a bit more time. Mr. Dibs would be best as a pack horse or a single horse with a frequent work. More pictures at https://modesto.craigslist.org/grd/5607679731.html
