Salty Dog is a true blue roan 6 year old gelding that we raised ourselves. He is a perfect gentleman in every way. His sire, HANCOCKS BLUE BIRD, is notorious in the western states for producing fancy using horse with beautiful dispositions that the general public can enjoy. They are athletes with flawless conformation, great personalities, forgiving trainable minds, and color as a bonus! Salty Dog reminds us so much of his daddy we have to look twice daily. They even carry themselves the same and have a similar presence. He stands 15.2 and will weigh right close to 1300lbs. He was blessed with big sturdy bone and foot as well as no markings which gives him a solid dark foot on every corner. The type that holds up to a lifetime of hard use and stays sound! No matter where we go someone is stopping to comment on how stunning he is, ask how he is bred, and if he is for sale. So here is your chance! Our whole family has used Salty Dog on the forest association in which we operate. He is fancy broke and capable of accomplishing the task at hand for Dad, but he is kind and gentle enough for our 10 year old daughter to be safe for a big day of trailing cows in the rugged mountains of Idaho. This gelding is very sure footed and will get through the creeks, bogs, down timber, steep mountain side, rocks and brush with total confidence. He will go anywhere we ask, and will do it with a quiet confidence that makes your day in the mountains 100 percent enjoyable. We have used him to brand calves, doctor outside, sort pairs, and do all the basic ranch jobs. In the arena Salty Dog is a very smooth gaited, elegant mover. He will step out and travel with the best of them and can also lope off collected like a little western pleasure show horse. He has a big stop and works off his hind end like one should. He naturally uses himself well and wants to please. Catch him anywhere you find him. He is polite and respectful to handle on the ground whether you are shoeing, clipping, bathing, grooming, etc. He will load in any trailer and stand tied quietly when asked. Just an all around respectful gelding that is a pleasure to own. Salty Dog will fit the weekend trail rider perfectly. He has the confidence to lead the pack, and the patience to bring up the rear. He does not have to have a full time job to maintain a brain, and he has a wonderful work ethic that makes him enjoyable for the big days the mountains often bring. If you prefer the arena setting he is just as happy to lope a few circles, conquer a trail course, and spend the rest of the day being admired if that is what you choose. He is truly the special kind that could fit into many different settings and stand out as the best! We invite you to our home to meet Salty Dog and see that he is a good fit for you prior to the sale. For further info please contact Dan or Becky Miller at 208-221-1090.
Jay Z is a one of a kind, home raised 6 year old gelding. Sired by our Blue Roan AQHA stallion, HANDMADE FOREVER, and out of a registered Clydesdale mare. He stands 16.3 hands and is a thick bodied dude with a keen head and a full mane and tail. Jay Z is jet black with an even blaze and 4 socks, making him an eye catcher for sure. He even has some roan hairs through his flanks and a touch of coon tail head. I certainly haven’t seen another quite like him. Very seldom do you see a 1/2 draft with a classy looking head like Jay Z has! As unique and stunning as his looks are, the best part about him is his disposition. He has been handled since the time he was a weanling, even traveling alongside his mother as she pulled a wagon into a funeral service the year he was a baby. We started him as a 2 year old and he has had full time employment on our forest association the past 4 summers. Jay Z is an absolute champ to ride in the mountains. He is very sure footed with an impeccable work ethic making him pleasant to ride ALL day long. He doesn’t care how steep it gets or how thick the timber is, he is happy to trudge along through anything you point him at. He has been across the big rivers, narrow creeks, the bogs, and the bridges. He will lead a pack string, or bring up the rear and he is fine either way. Jay Z will out walk the best of them and is a smooth moving horse for such a big boy. He is comfortable to ride for a long day and is an exceptionally easy mover. I am always amazed at how effortlessly he can take the correct lead and lope a collected circle just like a little horse that is bred to be that way. It may be more work for him than it is for some, but he will never let you know it. He is a big stopper, always on his hind end and turns around that way as well. We have even played around with him on some small jumps and he truly craves it. I think anything that brings a touch of a challenge to his training lights his fire! Jay Z is kind, gentle, and quiet for the beginner that needs help with their confidence, but he can be pretty fleet footed and alive for the more experienced rider that is looking for a new challenge. A truly fun horse that is always willing to try something new and eager to rise to the occasion to please you! He will ride in any bridle, or even a string around his neck and is soft and responsive in the face and ribs both. Fancy broke and mature beyond his years. Jay Z acts like an old horse that has seen and done it all, while he is really just a 6 year old with his whole life ahead. A special horse with a bright future! This is a rare chance to buy a unique horse right off the people that raised him. We know every detail about his life up to this point and we are happy to share those details with you as well. We invite you to come meet Jay Z in person and make sure he is the right fit for you prior to the sale. He will be in Rexburg, ID until November, when he will move south to enjoy the AZ sun for a while! For further info please contact Dan or Becky Miller at 208-221-1090.
