Updated 10/29/10: I'm posting some more video of Kelly when he was with us for two weeks this summer. (Keep in mind, it's 100 plus in the shade at the time of video) We've discussed his price with the owner and have raised it accordingly to a firm no waver price until January 2011. We'll be getting a new measurement on height on Kelly and a current lunging video on him next week.
Kelly is a Friesian/Saddlebred cross. He is out of quality registered stock! He is a 2 year old gelding who currently stands at 14.2 and 1/2 hands. Kelly has currently finished his first session of official training and passed with flying colors! He does everything you ask of him, what more could you want out of a young horse! He cross ties, stands quietly for grooming, loads, bathes, lunges both ways on the long line, picks up all his feet, and walks and trots with you on the lead line. Kelly does great working with tarps and plastic bags. He let me put the tarp on his back and slide it down his back with no problem! Kelly backs on the line for you with ease.
He has proven that he is a very quick learner and extremely smart! This boy has great stamina, he is going to be one that can go all day. He is super sweet around people, loves being groomed and handled. Has been around big,barking dogs and has no issue with them running in and out of the woods while we are working. Kelly really has a beautiful fancy trot and a nice calm walk.
He has not been ridden yet as he is still very young (the Friesians don't fully mature until 3-5 years) but he has been completely tacked up every day and has no issue. He is not cinchy in the girth or flank area and takes the bit with ease. Kelly has a beautiful solid black coat, its currently a little faded by the sun but if he can always be kept stalled if that's your preference. Kelly is UTD on worming and Coggins. If you have wanted a Friesian but couldn't afford the outrageous prices this is your chance and you simply must see the Stallion this guy is out of! Please call with questions or to set up an appointment. I have more pictures and short videos of Kelly in training that I can send to SERIOUS INQUIRIES.
You can't beat this kind of horse with this attitude for this price!!
