CAT TALKIN RIO MONEY, affectionately known as “Spiffy” is a 2017 AQHA sorrel gelding standing 14.1 hands tall and weighs roughly 1100 pounds. Spiffy has a long flaxen mane and tail that glistens in the sun and he has the CUTEST head you could ever put on a gelding! Chrome on every leg just wraps up the whole package and which earns him his name for sure! Whether you want a weekend trail or ranch horse, a horse to take and be competitive in the roping pen, or a young SAFE gelding to mount your kids on for years to come, Spiffy is the one you will want to bring home! Spiffy is by the great stallion, PALO DURO CAT who has earned $10,425 during his NCHA career. He is a full brother to SOPHISTICATED CATT, earner of over $176,000. PALO DURO CAT’S sire, HIGH BROW CAT, is the cutting worlds all time leading sire earning $110,102 by the time he retired in 1995 and at the time of his death in 2019, his offspring had earned over $79 million in NCHA competition. In addition, his sons have sired earners of over $140 million, and his daughters have produced earners of over $39 million. With bloodlines like that behind him, it’s no wonder he is as versatile as he is! We have used Spiffy for anything and everything on the ranch you could think of. He has trailed pairs to summer pasture, gathered cows at sun up, roped and drug calves to the fire at branding, pasture doctored yearlings on grass, and ponied colts for their first trip through the hills. He is cool calm and collected even when things get hairy. You can rely on him to help you get things done safely and efficiently. Spiffy isn’t the type that needs daily riding by any means, but having him around makes it easy to grab him on the coldest days and know he will get you home safe and sound. His short but stout size sure is convenient when you have all those layers on in winter too! You can leave him off for months on end, pull him out and he will ride the same as the day you kicked him out to pasture. If he doesn’t greet you at the gate (a rare occasion) just bring a halter and hop on bareback for a trip back to the barn from the pasture. He is easy to ride whether you are on a horse daily or a weekend rider. He is functional for the short stirrup riders too! Spiffy is calm and laid back, listens well to kid riders, and has seen the sights and sounds needed to ensure he will take every step to keep your kids safe! Spiffy is also just as well versed in the arena. He has been roped on on the head and heel side, has breakaway roped calves, and pen roped steers. He has seen the cutting flag as well which he transfers over to working cattle in the ally. He is incredibly cowy and fun to ride in the ally sorting or just penning back calves in the Feedyard. There truly isn’t anything this classy gelding can’t do. He is as versatile as he is functional! Horses like Spiffy are not a dime a dozen. You will search far and wide to bring home a gelding with his look and class, let alone his resume and abilities for his age. You or your kids will be the talk of the town on this outstanding gelding! We are ecstatic to offer Spiffy to you through an outstanding sale. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come take him for a spin here at the ranch! Please reach out to either of us with any questions you may have!
