HERBIE, as we affectionally call him, is everyone’s dream horse. We have had the pleasure of owning him since he was 6 months old and have enjoyed every moment of training and bonding with him. He is the type of gentle giant who meets you at the gate and is ready for the day’s adventure, even if that means waking him up from his nap. He has the perfect balance of "whoa" and "go". He is one hand broke and neck reins like a dream. He is as soft in the bridle as you will ever find. He reins, stops, and backs up with the slightest touch from the reins. He has excellent body control, and you can move any part of his body with leg and seat cues. You point him and he will go! He drops his head to be bridled and haltered and is easy to fit a saddle too. He stands nicely to be groomed and saddled. He comes with his custom-made bit and bridle as well for the new owner. I promise you that you won't find another draft who is as willing to be trimmed and shod as Herbie. Anyone can easily pick up all four feet.
He rides true and correct. He pivots with a perfectly planted hind foot as well as side passes both ways with ease. He has a nice walk, the most comfortable jog, and an easy lope both directions. He has been a great asset for us on our working cattle ranch amongst the Legend Butte range in western Nebraska. He has seen many miles of trails moving and checking cattle in thousands of acres of open and rugged terrain. While out on the range, he has experienced obstacles such as water crossings, logs, rocks, and wildlife. Herbie handles it all with grace and is surefooted on the trails.
Not only has he been a valuable asset to our ranch, but he has also seen a day’s work at the stockyards pushing cattle and getting gates amongst lots of commotion such as loud speakers and trains. No need to step off him, as he will side pass up to any gate to open and close it.
Whether it is a hot summer afternoon or a snowy morning, Herbie saddles up and rides off ready for whatever is in store for him. He has limited roping experience but has been used at brandings and has been started under harness ground driving single. His new owner is welcome to his custom collar and harness!
The best thing about Herbie is his willing nature and can-do attitude! He loves to learn, and we hope to find him a home who will appreciate his great personality.
We can't wait to visit with you and welcome you to come try or vet Herbie! You won't be disappointed! Please call or email to schedule.
