Tigger is a 5 yr old APHA registered palomino overo. He stands approx. 15.3 hands. He is a deep, rich, golden palomino. He has a GORGEOUS head, big badonkadonk butt,thick bones, and is really well put together. He was broke to ride as a 2 yr old by a REAL horseman who puts on clinics in Ohio. This man is the real deal, not some wannabe. He's been in the business nearly 40 yrs. He put a SOLID foundation on this horse.Has had lots of trail miles. He was a stallion, was used for breeding, and was ridden as a stallion. Because of the economy and lack of mares, I decided to make life easier for him. He was gelded this spring. He is living the good life, out to pasture with the other horses and gets along just fine. I have not had a lot of time to ride him this year, but the last time I did ride him, he was a perfect gentleman...just lazy as all get out. He's got potential to be a super speed event horse, but he did turn lazy after being gelded. I think he'd come out of that with consistent work. He'd make a great roping horse or just about anything else you would want to do. He's smooth enough to do westen pleasure, tall enough to go english, and stout enough to drag a bull across the county. He has a super disposition(has always been gentle, even as a stallion), loves to be pampered and loved on. He is always the first one to come running when you call. This colt is not junk. I wouldn't have driven all the way to Ohio if he was. He is a NICE horse, and WILL win if shown. He does have an old scar on his back fetlock, but he is sound on it. He runs HARD while playing out in the pasture, stops, turns, etc...and it does not bother him at all. It's not that bad of a scar, but it is there. It is just cosmetic. I really wanted to train him on barrels but I really don't have the time with 4 kids. He's just sitting out in the pasture going to waste, and he's really too nice a horse to do that to. He is registered with APHA. His registered name is KISS MY CASS. He is a son of the great Whata Cassanova. He has a great pedigree and is bred to do anything you could possibly ask a paint horse to do. And he's pretty to boot. I paid a LOT of money for this horse. Paid to haul him from Ohio. Paid to have him gelded. Not to mention the training he's had. With the economy the way it is, there's no way I will ever make my money back so I am offering him for a fraction of what I paid. This is a nice horse, he is NOT a cheap sale barn horse. email me for more info. Please, serious inquiries only. *********************
