2015 AQHA Sorrel Gelding
14.2/14.3 HH and well built.
Grandson of Gallo del Cielo this gelding has a lot of great names on his papers like Peppy San Badger, Smart Little Lena and Shining Spark.
Shady started his career as a working cow horse and has a really nice handle. Collects, side passes, counter arcs, big stop, you name it he has all of the buttons.
He has spent countless miles outside checking fence, gathering, branding, sorting. You can’t find a nicer horse to ranch on, not buddy sour, go all day, rope anything and easy to get along with.
We have been heading and heeling on him for the last year and a half and he is making a really nice rope horse. Can sometimes get a bit hot in the box on the head side and will get strong but score a couple and he’s good to go. Been hauled to some jackpots in Alberta and Arizona.
This nice gelding has never offered to buck, rear, or pull back and has no bronc to him but he can be watchy on the ground. For that reason, I wouldn’t recommend him to a green rider.
