Unless noted otherwise - All horses are healthy and sound. They are either 'duplicates' of something we already have, or we
have little use for them - specifically the geldings Can't ride them all.....
2017 black tobiano gelding
5 panel negative through parentage.
Currently in training and proving to be a very safe, reliable horse. Pheasant flew into him up out of the CRP field while
being ridden....NO SPOOK.
I believe this gelding will make an outstanding kids horse with just a little more age on him and/or taking lessons with a
This gelding has huge potential, but he does have a sway back. (technical term for sway back is lordosis, if you want to
look it up)
"One of the unique characteristics of lordosis in horses is that the spinal deviation does not have a disabling effect," observes
Patrick Gallagher, PhD, who researched equine lordosis while a graduate student at the University of Kentucky. "Even the most
severely affected individuals can be trained and ridden and can participate in horse shows.
Lordosis affects horses of all breeds, and neither the early-onset variety nor the late-arriving form has any particular influence
on horses' health or soundness. Swaybacked broodmares have no additional problems in conceiving, carrying or delivering their
foals. Performance horses are not impaired to any significant degree by lordosis, though swaybacked racehorses aren't among
the fleetest and affected show stock may have slightly altered gaits.
Gallagher doesn't recall seeing a lordotic horse with obvious use-caused back injury, but he has observed affected horses
who displayed some subtle sourness under saddle that may have been associated with impingement. Careful saddle selection and
appropriate padding are the primary considerations in outfitting lordotic horses for riding. Swaybacked horses should be able
to perform in harness without any particular accommodations to their abnormality.
$3000 (with considerations to a home that will use him as a kid's horse.)
Baron Bark Mindy
2007 red roan mare
Sire: Fancy Red Bark (gson of Fancy Roan Bark and Roan Bar)
Dam: Dolly Bar Baron (gdtr of Mr Baron Red and Jack Eyed)
Price reduced on this mare to $350. She has
a foal by her side, so will not be available until September. She is a nice, gentle mare. Good sized (15.1 or
so) with great conformation and a pretty little head and ear.
We are selling her because she is no longer eligible as a broodmare. We were advised this past spring
- by owners of Fancy Red Bark offspring that tested positive with PSSM - to test her. She did come back
as N/P1, so no more foals for her. While she is not symptomatic, there will never be any guarantee that her foals will
not be - REGARDLESS of what stallion she is bred to - as PSSM is a dominant gene. PSSM can be severe/painful enough
to require euthanasia.
Mindy requires no special care, as I said, she in non symptomatic.
She is kept on pasture 24/7, where she can self exercise and we do not feed grain to most of our broodmares. Those are
pretty much the rules of caring for any horse with the potential to 'tie up' (the generic term for PSSM.)
Currently priced at $350.
will be considered if she's not gone by the time we wean in September.
