"Nico" is a striking boy who is very sweet
and calm. Nothing seems to bother him and he is not at all spooky.
Stands tied quietly, good for farrier, sound, no vices, easy keeper - stays
fat on just grass or hay. OK with dogs walking under him. Lively
but easily controlled. Will stop instantly when you say "whoa".
Does lovely rein yields and is now getting on the bit although I have not
ridden him much lately. Knows Clinton Anderson lunging and can send
over jumps on the lunge. Nice soft mouth and flexible body.
Very floaty mover so would make a good dressage horse. Lovely big
hard feet that rarely need trimming with sturdy bones and joints.
Willing jumper and careful with his feet although I have only jumped him
maybe 3 times total. This flashy boy would look good in any discipline.
Carmen, the barn cat - not for sale!
