“Michael” Is a 3 year old Friesian cross gelding standing 15.3 hands high. Michael is not papered, however his sire is the Friesian stallion Michelangelo P. In the barn, this boy is the perfect gentleman and a very in-your-pocket type of guy. He always wants to know what you’re doing and if he can help and he loves the nose kisses he gets. He is great with children and absolutely adores all of the attention he gets from kids! Michael stands in cross ties, stands for the farrier, stands to be groomed and bathed, he will tie to a trailer or a lawn chair. He is easy to catch in a field. This boy spends most of his time out in the pasture but stands perfectly silent in a stall when he’s in. Under saddle, Michael is one of the most level headed, sane, and safe youngsters you could possibly swing a leg over. He has three very floaty and comfortable gaits followed by an incredible stop. He has a nice soft mouth and does not require lots of contact. This boy will ride on the buckle all day long or will get to work. You can put anyone who can sit up on his back, he is a true babysitter type of horse who has more woah than go to him and he is not interested in going any faster than he’s asked to. If you give him the option he will walk around on the buckle with a low head all day. Michael is a natural at jumping and has a beautiful lofty jump to him. He is brave and honest towards fences and other obstacles you point him at. And one of my favorite qualities of his is the fact that he can take a joke! On the trail, this boy is reliable and dependable. He is not spooky towards wildlife you come across in the woods nor is he “looky”. Michael will ride out English or western and is always happy to lead or follow. He does great in a group and going out alone. If you ride by yourself often and need a reliable and predictable horse, this is your boy. Michael crosses water, mud, bridges, ditches, hills, rocks, roots – anything you will come across he will happily cross without hesitation. He especially loves playing in water that you come across. This boy is just as safe off of the farm as he is on the farm. You’ll never know he’s in a new place when you take him out. Michael doesn’t react if another riders horse acts out or becomes spooky around him. Under harness, if you can hold the reins you can drive this guy. He is 100% traffic safe, he is simple enough for one person to harness and hook him and he waits patiently for you to get in the cart and ask him to move up. He is great with motorcycles, semi’s, dump trucks, and loud cars and trucks. This boy is a point-and-go type of horse in every way. He will take you anywhere you want to go, down quiet backroads or along a busy highway. Michael stops and waits at stop signs and traffic lights when asked. If you are looking for safe, sane, young, and flashy, this is your boy!
