Bonanza

Winning Bid: $8,850.00

Bonanza is a stout built 15.2-15.3hh, 11 year old, Beautiful Buckskin Gelding. If you want a horse that has seen it all and done it all… Bonanza is the one that you need! Bonanza was born and raised on a ranch in New Mexico where he was used as a working horse around the ranch. Sorting, roping and doctoring sick ones were part of the daily activities for him. He later moved on to work in at a feed lot in El Paso, TX penning cattle, doctoring sick ones and riding the lot. We took him out 2 weeks ago on a ranch that was 550 acres and caught 38 cows and a bull that the owner couldn’t get rounded up. It was an all day deal so we left them penned up that night with intentions of loading them the next morning… the next morning the corral was busted and we had to go back out and spend 2 days catching them all again! We roped several out in the wide open pasture, left Bonanza standing with them tied off to him. He is strong at the horn and will hold a big bull. Even when things don’t go as planned such as when a rope got any between his legs Bonanza stayed composed and didn’t freak out. Their isn’t much that he hasn’t seen… big rough country has been his home… he has all of the life experiences that anyone would want their next ranch or trail horse to have. Bonanaza is very gentle to ride, he is fancy and one hand broke, lopes very nice circles, slide stops, will open/shut gates… he has all of the buttons but is always gentle when under saddle. He will cross creeks, ditches, logs and navigate rough rocky areas. He a confident horse on the trails and will lead the crew, head out alone or follow behind with no issues! He has been exposed to all kinds of wildlife such as deer or turkey or other animals like cows or dogs and will go anywhere that he is asked too. He has been rode many miles in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and encountered every obstacle possible on the trail. He will go up or down even the steepest slopes, across deep creeks, over downed trees, and over all types of rough terrain while still being sure footed. Bonanza is not cinchy, does not crib or weave. If you’re looking for a REAL ranch horse that is ready to go do your job for you… Feel free to call Dillon Hughes with any questions at 606-308-9905. Located in Brodhead, KY.
