Slash

Winning Bid: $21,000.00

Slash is a 15hh 2009 Quarter Horse x Haflinger gelding. Slash has a smooth, quiet WTC that’s easy to ride at any speed. Trots/lopes from a stop, backs, side passes, and pivots. Not a deadhead and has a decent handle for the right rider but a beginner won’t accidently push buttons. Easy, straightforward ride, will neck rein or direct rein. Used as a camp horse and on pack trips, crosses water, deadfall, rough terrain, etc. no problem. Ties overnight, hobbles, ponies, loads/hauls/unloads, etc. Open gates, trim trees, or fix fence on him. No maintenance, gets vetted 2x per year (shots, teeth, Coggins, etc.), UTD on everything. Barefoot, no bad health or injury history. Easy keeper, gets grass hay and handful of “pity grain”. When people ask for a husband-safe, kid-safe, beer-drinking horse, this is what they are looking for. Rides alone or in a group. Works cattle okay but doesn’t have a ton of speed. Great for pushing steers through chutes, not afraid to throw his weight around. Slamming gates, loud noises, shouting, other nervous horses, etc. don’t bother him one bit. No buck, bite, rear, hops, skips, jumps, or whatever else. Can go months without riding and will be the same horse every time.
When my kid started riding, there were places I wouldn’t take him unless he was on Slash. Haven’t found anything Slash won’t navigate safe and steady. He’s been our go-to guy. Ponying naughty colts, parades, petting zoos, pony rides, practice horse for vet students, he’s done it all. Hard to offend and takes a joke. I rode him while pregnant (right up to 38 weeks) so I mean it when I say he’ll stand for mounting; I was flopping on him like a beached whale. Won’t make it in the big leagues but has gone to roping practice on occasion. We have too many horses and Slash just isn’t getting used. First one to the gate and will break your heart watching you take the other horses out instead of him. No vices. He will stop and eat if you let him but even the kids at camp can get him moving again without too much fuss. Slash was previously used as a therapy horse and got a little spoiled because of it so he can be a little pushy on the ground but minds if you make him. Slash has a lot of character and can get playful when bored (untying himself, opening gates, flipping the reins to one side of his head, taking off his buddy’s halter, etc.) but knows when it’s time to work. This is one horse you can count on everytime. His saddle, which was fitted specifically for Slash, sells with him unless otherwise requested. He has a big shoulder and we want him to have something that fits well for his next person.
Fall wellness exam will be done on 9/22/2021 to keep him on track. He’d love for you to come out and meet him, call 309-507-1885 or 515-745-3582 to chat or to schedule a visit.
