A tall Buckskin colt to finish 16.3H+. Reg CSHA, by a 17H TB Stallion and out of a Reg 16.3H CSHA Hanoverianx mare, out of a TB/Clydesdale mare. He was born 5/14/13. This colt is the TALLEST of the 2013 Hanoverianx's that we have here and he is the best mover. You can see him in the video below leading the group.
2/22/16 update: Lovely, quality gelding on every level. Absolutely beautiful mind. Friendly, respectful gelding with the perfect balance of kind and quiet nature with just enough intelligence to make him a quick study, yet uncomplicated ride that would be ideal for even a beginner working closely with a trainer to bring along. He hacks out alone and incompany, is self loading in a trailer, good for the farrier, 100% sound, gets along in large mixed pastures, easy peazy, tall handsome horse who will stand out in the show ring while going around with a calm composed demeanor.
10/31/15 update: This handsome fellow has totally gelled. Despite his quality, athleticism and breeding, he is he is now in the category of any one of our draft crosses in terms of temperament and broad accessibility to the wide range of skill/experience levels of todays amateur riders. (Anyone can ride him). Yesterday started with his rider pulling him from the field having not been ridden in a week and into the barn in cross ties to tack. I was up in the loft dropping hay and didn't hear them come in so descended from the loft almost nailing his rear end and he didn't move! It was his first trip to the kennels and he led 4 horses on a long trail ride. He was absolutely fabulous at the kennel, not at all phased by the hounds, taking one moment to lower his head and sniff and then it was on to stand like a statue and walk around like a seasoned hunter, couldn't have asked for better. On the trail ride he led out on the road for about a mile and was passed by several vehicles including a semi pulling a loaded logging trailer..flawless!! Two thumbs up for this guy! For someone looking for a diamond in the rough, baby version, take a look at his 2015 sibs, Sandstorm and Giaco's Fancy Pants, who just arrived from Canada this week.
10/8/15 update: Incredible horse!!! Back from training and not ridden here due to a week and a half of torrential rain. Ridden for the first time on the farm today and was just spectacularly off the charts in several ways. One he was laid back and quiet, two he was SMART and obedient, three he was refreshingly forward in a relaxing confident way. Four he moves beautifully and is smooth at the trot and canter. The riders absolutely LOVE this horse and asked if I can find more like him.
9/23/2015 update: Still doing well in training. Taking a break to have his wolf teeth extracted.
9/14/15 update: Now started under saddle. Going w,t,c in the arena.
12/2/14 update: Strikingly handsome, even tempered gelding who floats on air.
10/26/14 update: Maturing beautifully. Lovely gelding, athletic, fluid, moves with suspension and float. Very sensible temperament. Excellent candidate for further training. Suitable as a dressage prospect or jumper.
