Tabe - SOLD
This is a wonderful baroque gelding that has been adored and loved and shown by the same owner since he was 1 month old. He was only sold due to time constraints on the owner ---she would love for someone else to have the opportunity to ride, show and enjoy this sweet, kind gelding. Due to her unselfish gesture of allowing someone else this opportunity, we will sell Tabe to an approved forever home only---he truly is a special gem!
And if not sold???? Well, Janna was looking for a new western show horse (sorry Sterling!) to compete on the west coast.
Why is Tabe so special??? Owned by the same person since he was a month old, and imported from Canada, Tabe is the kind of horse that always gives 110%. He has never been sick or lame a day in his life. He has never even had a fever!! Never coliced and has super good, hard feet. He's been shoeless for a couple years, unless he goes on rocky trails, he does not need shoes!
He is an excellent trail horse as he never stumbles and he always has his balance. He has been on rides that many experienced trail riders would never go on. Trails that make you dizzy to look across to the next canyon, mountain side or just to look down...Very steep hills up and down.... Not a problem for Tabe! He never misses a step; this boy always knows where his feet are. He is a very fast learner. Also, he is easy to keep contained. He won't mess with fences.
Tabe is very smart. He learns fast and remembers everything.
His first professional training was under a western trainer, specializing in reining and working cow horses. He will spin, do flying lead changes, slide to a stop and he neck reins. Neck reining is what he knows best!
He's not a mean horse. NO biting, kicking, etc. We trust him on the ground with anyone. And he enjoys living in a stall OR in the pasture, which was proven during a stay in Montana, where Tabe resided with a herd of working Quarter Horses and Texas Longhorns, and got along just fine.
Tabe will probably be the only Friesian to live to see 35, he is VERY VERY healthy.
