My neighbor is paying me 100 bucks a month to just go up and make sure his horses have water, because the guy he hired in the first place never came and to water and feed them for like a month.. Which ended up costing one of the horses their lives.. Anyway he told me that I could have some of them .-. Like literally said “I’m not doing anything with these guys, so if you want them you can have them.” Basically he just gave me 3 stallions, a mare, 2 yearling fillies, and 2 geldings. Luckily the mare is infertile, so no babies from her. Though he does have a pretty damn nice stallion and another mare that’s popping out babies left and right. He’s kind of stupid., but shockingly most of them have pretty great conformation and the ones that aren’t babies are registered and have excellent bloodlines. They just need to be handled and worked with. Some are ex show horses, and just haven’t been ridden in a few years. I can take them whenever I want. I’m thinking about just leaving them on his property for now and work with them gradually and use them as train and sell projects.
The first picture is the grey roan Stallion out of JFK. He’s pretty submissive for a stallion, really. Also my favorite.
Second picture, the 3 studs together. The only one that is really study is the one with a star. I can’t remember the two black one’s sires because we went through ALL of them haha but the middle one is the ugliest little thing and such a mess, but he’s pretty sweet. And the one at the end is the JFK stud. None of them have ever bred.
Third Picture, the mare I was talking about who’s infertile.
Fourth Picture the 16hh. Registered name “I’m Conway Twitty” ex show horse out of Dumas Walker, He’s one of the geldings.
5th picture the yearling fillies. When the palomino looking one shed out during the summer she stayed that color, but a lil lighter in the face. She’s actually considered a honey roan. Really shy and has never been handled. And the buckskin has also never been handled.
Last pictures, the other gelding who was also an ex show horse,(pictured after him is him in a halter class as a youngster and him as a padded 4 year old. Half brother to the other gelding but out of the same Medicine Man mare.
As you can tell, they aren’t in superb condition. Some could use more weight and all could use some serious grooming. His fields are nothing but burrs, as you can tell. I think I could get a lot of money off these guys if I just get them refreshed and broke.
