Not A Scam. I'm needing to limit my stress and focus on myself for a bit. That's why he's on sale and someone is going to make some money on him, he's quirky but he's wicked fast. Horses 5 years and older
This ad is going to be very honest and long; I love this horse and I want him to go to a home that’s more suitable for him. I’m burnt out on horses and need a break. He’s quirky…and not just anyone will get along with him. That’s why I want it all out here. He’s not the relaxing, go have fun at a small show type horse. He likes arena work, don’t ride him in an open field fresh, but he doesn’t mind the road.
He’s a registered 2007 palomino model, 13 years old. Routine farrier, chiro, vet, massage, and dental work. I haven’t ridden him since September, I have zero ambition to pull him out and ride him, so he’s listed at a crazy, reasonable number. He’s not dangerous, but he’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
HE’S EXTREMELY HONEST. He will tell you what’s wrong, you just have to listen.
Competitive at rodeos, and probably 2D in big jackpots but they make me anxious, so we don’t do well there. He’s semi-automatic. No push to first, hustle into second, and third he’s giving it his all. He runs in a rather intimidating hackamore; this will be given with him. It’s used for the end of your run, and if your hands are quiet, you will not overturn a barrel. He will alligator gape in ANYTHING else.
Very personable, in your pocket type personality
Super intelligent, which means you cannot harp on this horse or beat him, but you also can’t let him get away with anything either.
Absolutely loves having a job. Super handy broke. I believe he has a reining handle. Neck reins, moves off seat/leg pressure, will do a beginner type spin, collects, tip his head, light on the mouth/nose.
Will not make you look like a fool at any clinic or warming up. He is a Rockstar and a bit of a show-off.
Will work and pasture with cows, push them in a corner, stand off to our bull (he’s a mini so might not mean much) Also does obstacle challenges and may only hesitate a bit. He even did the step-up box first time seeing with ZERO hesitation. Rodeo and fair noise doesn’t bother him, neither does machinery or cars going down the road or in his pasture. Watches fireworks like they’re for him.
Will eat or drink ANYWHERE, yes even if it smells like bleach water.
Needs hock injections, probably twice a year if you’re running hard. I have attached a video in facebook of him giving me the middle finger, so you can see what he does when he’s not feeling good, five months after injections. Would advise getting his SI checked while you’re at the vet, he doesn’t stretch his back legs for the farrier well. He’s fusing in both hocks, and his front right foot is lower angled than his front left.
Needs Lasix. 5cc four hours before running.
He sets back if tied to the trailer while washing, or if you walk up to him angrily. You will see it in his face when he's ready to do it. He will stand to be washed if not tied. Told you he’s quirky.
If you have a narrow trailer, he will not load in a timely fashion either, it's a more of his time type of thing.
Tucker is also known as a bolter. If there are people walking or something that spooks him (you’ll know), have enough bit, see hack above or a longer lifter type, to stop him. I call it a “yes ma’am” bit. It’s more than I typically need, but he is NOT a relaxing trail horse to ride if he’s having one of those days.
MUST BE on a non sugar/starch/soy diet. I tested this the last year and a half and you will have an uphill battle of ulcers if you do anything with those three... Means no corn, no oats, no molasses, no soy meal, or soy flour. He doesn’t really get treats for this reason. He’s on a 24/7 grass hay, alfalfa pellets, and an all-around mineral from Horsetech. He will become a hot headed, ready to pick a battle teenager if you do not follow these. He will also lose his topline rapidly.
You must be able to stay out of his way running or he will not run as hard.
Extremely buddy sour. If you haul with someone, expect that person to not get too far from you, unless you get off and stand beside his head. He is fine at home or hauling alone, and you don’t stand next to anyone for long periods
Nervous type horse hauling, he gets jailbreak after the trailer ride, and is on forco, it helps his gut a lot.
I have lots of videos, pictures, and whatever else you may need. I have zero ambition for horses right now and he really does prefer to have a job versus sitting there and just eating.
