This stunning buckskin gelding is 12-13 years old and approximately 14.2 hands tall. He has incredible bone and big solid feet. Rico was gathered in October 2018 from the Devil's Garden Plateau Wild Horse Territory outside of of Alturas, CA. He was purchased from the Forest Service as a sale horse in November 2018, gelded around December 15, 2018, and brought home to our ranch for training on December 22, 2018. He will be easy to catch, halter, lead/handle, pick up feet/stand for farrier, trailer, be examined by a vet, and stay safely contained within 5 foot tall fencing prior to being made available for rehoming. Further training is available if requested. Updates on his progress will be posted regularly on our Facebook page.
Sierra is a 5 year old, 14.3 hand titled BLM mustang mare. She was gathered from Hard Trigger HMA in Idaho in 2015 and adopted by Kathy in March of 2018. She is super athletic with solid build. She is easy to lead, has had her feet trimmed, ties, been sat on bareback and with a saddle. Saddles well. She is a sweet, in-your-pocket type horse once she really trusts someone. She can be hard to catch if she doesn’t know you and is a more insecure, un-confident horse who will really need a person willing to invest the time in earning her trust. She will paw and dig holes in her pen when upset or nervous, but has never done so standing tied. With consistent handling, this diminished significantly. She is slightly toed-in on her front feet, however she has never taken a lame step and is a very easy keeper. With consistent trims it is hardly even noticeable. Sierra has a TON of potential for a person willing to commit to her and ideally she would be their only horse and handled daily. She would make an incredible trail, ranch, or endurance horse. She can be very herd bound and difficult to catch with another horse in the pen, however, once she is haltered she is easy to separate and responsive and soft to her handler. The only reason Kathy is considering rehoming this sweet mare is she do not have the time to devote to her that she needs to thrive and Sierra deserves the best home possible… Kathy works full time for a non-profit and with her current workload and other horses, she does not feel she is Sierra's best option right now. She is currently Kathy's secondary horse and with her personality that is just not fair to her. We are in no hurry to sell her and we will not rehome her to just anyone, but if we can find someone who can offer her what Kathy can’t at this point, we want her to have the chance to reach her potential. A first right of refusal will be included in the sales contract. $850, however this is negotiable as the perfect home is more important.
