15 hands

CONSIGNED BY KEILY STEWART

Smokey has been my main mount for going on three years. Started and eased into his role on the ranch as a 3 year old, he is a flashy Gray  gentleman, with three high white socks. Standing at 15 HH, he is athletic, enthusiastic, smooth-going with tons of potential to pursue any future direction. For two seasons he has been used in all aspects of ranch work, calving, branding, doctoring, sorting and gathering. He has been roped on extensively, tracks hot heels, and has roped out of the box some. He has good hard feet and is exceptionally sure footed in rough country. He has lived in camp and been to town, and competed in Ranch Rodeo. He is incredibly kind and loves people. Smokey is the same every time you swing a leg over, very mannerly, and easy for other horses to get along with. Even after back-to-back hard days you can walk right up to him in the pasture and catch him every time. He is a horse that has been exposed to all kinds of shenanigans. You can bomb around on him bareback and in a halter; he will take you, your kids, the dogs and the floaties to the pond for a swim, have fun at Liberty. His calm demeanor and go-getter attitude has opened a lot of doors for he and I, he has been a perfect prince; and I know he will do the same for whomever has the pleasure of owning him next. He will be a tough one to let go, but I guess that's when you know they're worth selling.
