Johnny (14.3 – 5 yr. old) —is a really, REALLY sweet, safe horse! He was born and raised with the same family until he came to our home! He was broke, trained, and ridden by a young girl from the time she broke him when she was 14 yrs. old. She is now 17 and is involved with many school activities. She just doesn’t ride anymore. Her Grandpa, Johnny, (named after him)…….said she lived and breathed riding until recently. It is VERY important that we find Johnny a hopefully lifetime, loving home!————–Johnny doesn’t have the color that we usually offer to you for sale, but I tell you, his personality and temperament make up for everything! Johnny is a horse that will be wonderful for a lesson horse, timid-beginner riders, and children of all ages! If you have visitors that have never been on a horse, Johnny will take care of them! All the children here absolutely love him! Even the younger children walk out in the pasture,….he comes right up to them,….and they lead him to the stable, – all by themselves!——————He is the same EVERY SINGLE DAY NO MATTER WHAT! If you do not ride Johnny for a year…..he is the same. Johnny had not been ridden all winter when we got him in April of this year —-we brought him home – he stood to mount – waited to be told to move——and has yet to spook at anything we have tested him with!!! He is calm, quiet, still-like movements,…..absolutely stands to mount and then waits.
He Loves attention! Coming from a young girl, he is SO loving,……quiet, calm, and a joy to be with! AND HE LOVES POTATO CHIPS!!!———————————-
I realize that color is important to many of you……but for those of you that want a truly SAFE, DEPENDABLE, CONSISTENT, – SAME 24/7, WITH A LOT OF HEAD SENSE —- —AWESOME FOR CHILDREN OF “ALL” AGES INCLUDING RIDING DOUBLE WITH TODDLERS ———–DON’T LET THIS AMAZING HORSE GET AWAY!!! THEY DON’T COME ALONG VERY OFTEN!!!!!!!———————————-
Johnny is VERY affectionate and loving! He was loved and ridden by a young girl so it is no surprise that he has so much to give!!!! Johnny does all the things we love! Stops on voice command! Stands to mount —and waits to be told to move! —mounts from the mounting block or anything you have!! He rides double……you can put three children on him and lead him around……..- or if one can ride, they can do it themselves.
Johnny is very traffic broke, farm machinery broke, barking dogs at the heels broke,…..and the fourth of July???? Our neighbors set off fireworks for over a week and he paid absolutely no attention to the unbelievable loud noise!!———Johnny has been trail ridden all over the hills in Rockcastle Co. – very challenging hills and trails! He will go through anything you ask of him…..without hesitation. Wildlife, birds, – he is used to all of that! He came from a place named “Big Hill”….and believe me,……..big hill does not describe his previous home! Johnny is five years old but he has miles of experience on him with steep trails, crossing fallen trees, brush, and belly deep creeks! He is just an amazing horse!
Johnny will happily ride out alone,…with a group - and he doesn’t care, front, middle, or back! He is a very contented horse, just happy to do what you ask him to do with no hesitation! Johnny has a slow motion walk,……and a really nice smooth easy gait. He runs great in the pasture with other horses…….and, he is just a big pet when he sees you coming!! Johnny has SO much love to give…..and I hope to find someone who doesn’t care about color and will truly appreciate and love him!! Someone who will make an effort to keep in touch with us with an occasional photo and update on how he is doing! He is a wonderful horse for the entire family! All ages! We don’t get very many horses like Johnny!!!!
