TRR MR PLAYBOY BLUE, known as Hardy is an 8 year old Red Roan Gelding that stands 14.3 hands and weighs 1100 pounds. He is sired by MEDICINAL MECOM BLUE, which sired some outstanding ranch horses for Tongue River, out of a PEPCID mare, TRR MS PEP PLAYBOY. Hardy has been used extensively on the ranch. Joshua Halsell picked him as a two-year-old and he was started and ridden by him and his daughter his whole life. He has had all ranch work done on him from dragging calves, sorting cattle, roping cattle outside, and making big drives in various terrain. As exceptional as he is outside on the ranch he is just as diverse and experienced in the arena. Hardy has been used in ranch rodeos since he was a 4-year-old helping Tongue River win various events in the last 4 years. He is a finished head and heel horse, who scores exceptionally well, and has been hauled to numerous World Series Team Roping’s. Joshua’s daughter has not only shown him in multiple ranch horse association competitions but has also been actively breakaway roping on him for Clarendon College in the Southwest Region. Hardy has a great disposition to him as well. This horse hauls well, stays on feed and drinks plenty of water away from the ranch. Hardy is a gentle horse that has been exposed to all types of arena events. He has had flags carried on him in parades and grand entries. He was also used in the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo ranch rodeo this year for the buddy pickup race where he had to run across a tarp twice carrying two cowboys riding double at a run. Hardy picked up the slack and ended up helping the ranch win that event. Not only does he stack up as a great ranch horse, he has proven himself as a great arena horse too. He will carry anyone to any discipline and stay gentle along the way. He is considered a great all-around horse at Tongue River Ranch.
