CR Zan Be Murphy

Winning Bid: $13,250.00

If there’s one thing I like about Murphy, it’s that I like more than one thing about Murphy… Seriously though, I could fill an entire book up about what makes this horse such an exceptional individual. We’ve taken him on overnight trail rides, ridden him through downtown Fort Worth and I’ve watched him babysit young kids for hours on end. No matter when you call on him, Murphy is always the guy that shows up to take care of you. He has an especially quiet demeanor that has a way of calming everyone around him. Every time you leave or step away from this horse, you leave feeling content and at ease.
He is great out on the trail, carefully placing his feet to take care of his rider in any situation. From rough country, to riding through the most metro of environments – he takes it all in stride. Crosses water without hesitation, effortlessly goes up/down hills or embankments, goes right over bridges, doesn’t spook at wildlife or pedestrians that you may come across, finds his way through even the thickest of brush and never gets in a tizzy about branches poking him under the belly. He’s good in large group or will ride off solo without a hitch. Murphy doesn’t mind man’s best friend trailing along behind him either, he’s great with dogs! Rides right past cars and trucks, steps up onto or off of curbs in town, and doesn’t pay mind loud noises. Heck, you can even go check your mail on him. He has a good neck rein and will move off leg cues. Murphy is a comfortable ride too – he is soft and fluid at the walk, trot and canter. He also has a slow jog that is to die for! Good stop, easy back up, picks up both leads.
If you are looking for a horse to bond with and spend time with outside of riding – Murph is your guy! My 8 yo niece ADORES this horse and he is absolutely fantastic with her. She’s a total beginner and Murphy takes care of her on his back AND on the ground. He’s so careful and attentive to his “little people”, it’s truly a sight to see. He is always quiet and composed on the ground. Will stand tied for hours on end, doesn’t fidget or move around when he’s being groomed, saddled, bridled or bathed either. He loads/unloads with willingness and ease, hauling quiet as a mouse wherever you’re headed. He doesn’t get in a panic when he leaves the barn, and his friends aren’t there with him for support and never makes a scene when you unload him somewhere new. Murphy is good with his feet; your farrier will love him just as much as you do! This sweet gelding stands 14.2 hands and has tons of eye appeal – everyone likes him! Murphy is completely sound, sane and ready to go. He is UTD on shoeing, dental, vaccinations, Coggins, etc. He is completely sound and just passed a recent lameness exam with flying colors as well! (Record available) No special feed, supplements, medications or maintenance – he is as easy as they get!
Murphy is by a son of “CATS RED FEATHER” (NCHA earnings of $221k+, sire of NCHA $ Earners with earnings of $1.83 million+) that’s out of a daughter of “SHORTY LENA” (sire of mares that have produced more than $13 million, including NCHA Futurity Open champions Spots Hot, Oh Cay Felix, One Time Royalty and Oh Miss Caroline).
As you can see… Murphy is a really nice, well-rounded gelding who is suitable for such a wide array of jobs and environments that you just can’t help but have an appreciation for him. He really does do it all and does it well. When you take one look at Murphy, he really speaks for himself, but we can’t say enough great things about this amazing horse! We completely welcome anyone who wants to come meet Murphy to come visit him in person or to reach out to us with any questions they may have!
