One Word!!! “Extraordinary!!!!!”
This one word – truly describes MG. He is what many of you call “One Fine Horse” in Every Way! He has absolutely No Bad Habits – and – absolutely No Negative Behavior! Very Loving! He is truly “A Rare Find”! He is a dream to ride with one of the smoothest gaits you could ever find!!!! Generator’s MG is truly everyone’s dream…….He Has It All!!!! Horses do not come along like MG very often!!
GENERATOR’S MG is a magnificent - gorgeous gelding with a VERY affectionate, sweet, humble, calm, quiet, well-behaved personality! He has “The Best Manners” both ground and under saddle! He is truly one of the “SMOOTHEST” horses we have ever owned!
You can see on his Pedigree listed, that he has EXCEPTIONAL BLOODLINES being sired by GEN’S MAJOR GENERAL – with PRIDE’S GENERATOR top and bottom! MG is Registered Racking…and when he was young –his former owner held back his walking papers….I know for sure he is Registered Walking –His papered walking name is “The General’s Motor”-Reg. #979863 — Reg. 12-3-97. The family that we got him from….said that years back….the walking papers were never passed on with MG – for whatever reason — no one knows! I tried to contact that owner and was unable to do so…….but his bloodlines are correct as can be confirmed by the TWH Association’s Registration Office.
MG is so gentle and he loves Children! We have had Children around him here grooming, petting, feeding, and just hanging around MG. They love him! And he loves the attention they all give to him!
We have owned MG and our other beautiful, black mare- Gen’s Cotton and Lace (Sold -June, 2009)- for a long time! Due to our health issues, we made the difficult decision to sell both of them to cut down on our keepers. We just do not have the time they deserve….. They have both been pets to our family and to those who have visited our stables!
I have photos of my nephew and granddaughter when they were 3 and 4 —tip-toeing….reaching up to pet MG. The top of his stall was completely open….and he would always hang his head over and down “as much as possible!”…..stretching!!! – so the smaller children could reach him! And he would do that until they walked away! He is truly the favorite of children!!
MG will STAND TO MOUNT AND – HE STOPS ON VOICE COMMAND!!! He will stand in the crossties very still and quiet. You don’t have to worry about MG stepping on a child or toddler. He does not move in the crossies. MG is 12 years old…..so he has seen it all…..He was taught the very best of manners, and he realizes when a small child is around!
MG is SO EASY to do ALL THINGS with! He LOVES his baths!!He will walk right on a horse trailer, easy to load, haul, shoe, and clips the very best!
There are smooth riding horses and then there are EXCEPTIONALLY SMOOTH riding horses…..and MG is truly just that! You will love his ride! He is Very affectioate….you will fall in love with him in just five minutes of being with him! That is what happened to me! I had no intention of purchasing a horse when I saw MG in Alabama that year~! I could not come home without him! He has the sweetest, big, most beautiful – humble eyes that will melt your heart! And he is SAFE!
MG is not afraid of traffic, barking dogs, sirens, fireworks, heavy equipment, creeks, WHATEVER! MG has seen it all! Believe me, he has been tested with many things while here! We have so enjoyed him!!
His gaits are So Graceful….and he has beautiful confirmation! The talent that you see in the videos is MG all the time! It is all natural talent…..his head set is consistent the entire time he is in a bridle. You don’t have to make MG do anything!!! He listens to your voice…and he obeys!
MG has been mostly ridden by women the past few years……and at one time, a six year old little girl did show him! He is that safe! He will walk at a real slow walk with no hesitation anytime you want! Cluck to him and he goes into his smooth gait….cluck again…and he will go a faster gait – but he will come right back down to a slow walk “with NO hesitation”.
I have him marked “Great For Kids”…but he is 15.1 and I like smaller horses for smaller children! They don’t have so far to fall! You can lead MG around with smaller children….. – The youngest age I would put on MG and allow them to ride alone would be 7 years and up…..and If they are 7 or 8–they need to be experienced in riding due to his size. But any age child is safe to stand beside him —to pet and groom!
We were blessed to find Cotton & Lace a wonderful home in Versailles, Ky. – They have two small children and they love “Lacy” as they call her! It is really important that we do the same for MG…..We have had them both a very long time and they have been loved dearly! Thank you for reading our ads! Call us anytime – (606) 423-5054….
With Best Wishes for you and your family…..Connie
