Kid (El Nino reg #980694) is a registered bay Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse gelding born 4/20/1998 with names like BLACK GO BOY SUN, LA VELVETA, MIDNIGHT SUN, and MERRY GO BOY in his pedgree. We rescued him from a horse auction on 11/27/15 and stands 15HH. His previous owner had too many horses and had to downsize so he was one of the horses she had to sell. He came from a trial riding ranch but is NOT safe to ride unless you're a very experienced rider! We suspect he was abused while being ridden but is the sweetest horse when he doesn't have a saddle on. He is very spunky and does NOT act his age (in a good way)! ;) He has no problem loading on a trailer, jumps right on! He even comes to us in the field.
Kid is a farrier's dream! He stood where I put him, lifted his feet with out a problem, never tried to pull his feet away, and about fell asleep! Looks like he's been kept barefoot as he has nice healthy hooves and thick hoof walls. He has been off the pasture during the winter and has had no problem holding his weight with just grass/alfalfa hay and no grain.
He is currently in training so his price will be determined as he progresses.
I offer a 2 week trial period so if he doesn't work out you can bring him back.
