A rare chance --- we are offering this proven show stallion for sale!
Brendan is the sweetest, kindest stallion. He absolutely LOVES women and loves being doted on. He is broke to ride English and Western and has competed at both breed and open shows with an amateur rider/handler. He did win a reserve champion title in Western Pleasure at the Utah Gypsy Show in 2014. Brendan absolutely loves big events like expos and fairs and has attended both the Minnesota State Fair and the Minnesota Horse Expo several times! He just loves all the attention!
Brendan has a gorgeous, long, thick mane and tail and good feather. His mane is over three feet long! He absolutely loves being brushed and having his mane braided and will stand for hours. His mane goes all the way to the ground!
Brendan is a very unusual color pattern. He is a blagdon, so he looks roan or sabino but has tested negative for both genes. His base color is palomino and he also has a PATN1 gene. He has thrown some very interesting colored foals and you can see many of them for sale on the sales pages!
Brendan has sired at least 20 foals to date (that I know of).So far he has sired 70% fillies. He will hand or pasture breed (though I pasture breed with him) and can be pastured with mares, foals, geldings, and other non-aggressive stallions.
Brendan needs an intermediate or better rider because he is very sensitive. Like all stallions, Brendan is not suitable for a novice horse owner unless the owner has a trainer, but for someone who has owned horses before he would make a great first stallion that can be managed at home. He hasn't been shown since 2017 so would probably need a short tune-up to get back into the show ring.
Lil Lady Victoria
Bay drum horse Mare
IDHA and GHA registered
Lady is our drum mare. I went to visit a farm to look at a couple gypsy fillies for sale, and the owner told me "I want to show you this mare." She then called up her grazing horses from the pasture and this massive bay mare come running in. The owner picked me up and threw me on this mare without any tack, and proceeded to free lunge her, showing me how she knew her hand signals. I went for gypsies, but took her home instead!
Lady is quite a gem and could go any way you want. She is a big moving mare with a quiet temperament. She gets along well in a mixed herd of mares and geldings. She has never been bred but adores the foals and would probably make an excellent mom. Lady would be suitable for show with a bit more schooling; for trail riding; or as a therapeutic riding horse. She has done all three.
Lady spent 4 1/2 months training with top Gypsy trainer Katie Hembree. She knows her leads, but for arena work she would be best for an intermediate rider unless the beginner was confident and working with a trainer. She needs work to have a consistent headset, and because she has more whoa then go, sometimes she will see if she can stop and she will stomp her back foot if you ask her to go. For trail riding, Lady is suitable for beginners. She enjoys getting out. She rides out alone and is road safe (at least on gravel roads; I don't ride along highways). Lady was also used in summer of 2019 for a therapeutic riding program for people who have never been on a horse. She did great! Lady has been lightly shown in hand and with another month or two of consistent riding would be ready to show under saddle. She knows how to set up for halter and does so easily. She is shod in front.
