SIRE: Call Him The Flash. His dam is a good daughter of Classical Silver, our beloved old ranch stallion. Blondy is a gorgeous light chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail, standing 15.1 hands, and weighing 1200#. He is very stout.
BLONDY is a 9 year old gelding that was bred and raised here on the ranch. We have used him for everything from a pony-horse to a 'go-to' horse when we have ranch work to do. He is 100% sound, very good boned and good footed and a very useful 'ride'. He is smooth gaited and pretty easy going. He is a 'rock solid' trail horse with a lot of endurance and can be ridden hard all day, every day.
He is an excellent trail horse and ranch horse, but he is probably more horse than a novice rider needs. He can get a little humpy when he has been turned out for a long time. He is not a bronc or mean, but a 'good feeler' when he is fresh. Everyone here just loves to ride him, but we have so many young horses coming up that need the riding more than him, that we are offering him for sale. If someone takes him and works more cattle on him and ropes more off of him, he is a $10,000 ranch / doctoring horse.
Offering him for $5000.00 now.
Sire: Classical Silver-- Our old beloved foundation stallion that was Tee Jay Roman / King Ranch breeding on top out of one of the last daughters of Doty's Socks Jr, our first ranch sire that had 280 AQHA points in 10 events and had an NCHA Certificate of ability.
Dam: A mare we bought from Waggoner Ranch in Vernon Texas. She had Doc Bar, Hired Hands Cardinal and Poco Nifty Pep on her papers. Classy is as close as you can get to the great horses that founded the American Quarter Horse Association. He is our last son of Classical Silver.
This beautiful big bay gelding is absolutely gorgeous. When Pete used to ride him on various ranches gathering and working cattle, everyone remarked that he was 'the best looking gelding they had seen'. Pete has not been in very good health and can no longer ride him. He feels bad that he is just standing out in the pasture and not being ridden. He would like to sell him to someone that will appreciate him and use him. He needs a job. He is gentle and pleasant whether he is ridden every day or once a year. The young man riding young horses for us has ridden him several time and he has yet to make a mistake. He is big and stout and can carry a big man all day, every day. As soon as I can, I will get picture of him and put them in here.
