Rick O Shay

Winning Bid: $11,250.00

Rick O Shay is that classy, dark chestnut AQHA gelding that turns heads everywhere he goes. He has natural chrome and shines all the time. Not to mention, he is built as good as you could ask for one to be. At 15.1hh and 1315lbs he’s a great size for all riders, and at 10yrs old he’s the perfect age! Rick O Shay is the entire package that will fit most anyone whether you’re looking for a ranch horse, rope horse, or just a good looking partner to head down the trails on! “Joe”, as we call him, came off of the Atkins Ranch in Detroit, Tx which is an almost two thousand acre ranch. There, Joe got his start in life and learned the meaning of hard work and how to be a dependable partner. He’s been used outside to do year round ranch work and is always up to the task at hand. He is a ton of fun in the branding pen and won’t let you down when you need one held tight to doctor in the pasture. Joe has also been used all throughout the mountains of Colorado to do ranch work and trail ride. He is sure footed and level headed making him the ideal candidate to go blaze new trails. In the winter months, Joe would often sit for the whole season due to the weather. Come spring he would be caught, saddled, and then used to tote around less experienced friends that would come visit the ranch to see the sights on the trails and help move the herd to grazing grounds. Out on the trail Joe will go wherever asked on a loose rein, and absolutely loves going through water!
In the arena, he has proven to be exceptional at anything that involves a cow. He’s the go to when fresh steers come in and need to be strung because he has all the run you need to catch them straight off the trailer. Joe is a phenomenal head horse as well but will kick his hind end over in the box and you’ll have to correct him. He leaves flat as one should and has the rate needed for slower cattle. You can take him to the 8 or 16 with no issue. Joe has a lot of cow sense and would fit a weekend sorter looking for their next mount. He reads a cow well and with his ranching background, he’s well versed in the art that is sorting. With his athleticism and handle, there’s no doubt Joe is the one stop shop to do it all on. He is easy to get along with whether you’re an experienced rider or just starting out as he’s one handed broke with straightforward and easy buttons. He picks up both leads easily and doesn’t get in a hurry unless asked. Both his trot and lope are comfortable to ride and easy to sit as well. Whether he’s as fresh as can be or being used daily, Joe rides like one should. Joe is easy to be around and stands for everything (grooming, bathing, saddling, etc.). He’ll give you his feet when you go to pick them up and stands for the farrier as well. He loads/unloads like a gentleman and is great while hauling. He gets along with everyone in the herd, is easy to catch, and has had no previous health issues. Joe has also never offered to buck, rear, or hump up regardless of time off.
