Now that you’ve all been properly introduced…
“Dusty is an adorable, in-your-pocket 3 year old appaloosa gelding – POA size. He has been well started under saddle, but needs finish work. He’s not yet a “kid safe horse” – but he is well on his way!
This handsome boy would rather be with you than with any other horse in the herd. He has personality plus!(For that reason, obtaining a good picture of him without help is nearly impossible. He’d rather have his nose in the camera than anywhere else!) “
And from Dusty’s foster Mom:
“Sticked Dusty and he is a tad over 14 hands. I clipped him, he was great for is muzzle not so much for the bridle path, but we got it done. He was not bad, just the oh what are you doing backing up thing. I lunged him and I don’t think he has done much if any or the person did a lot of walking around the horse type lunging. After I got him going he was very fast to pick up and associated words and gaits and body language for what I wanted him to do. He has a great whoa when you step infront of his driveline. LOL His canter needs work he is a little weak in his muscle developement and subsequently can not hold the canter on the cirlce for very long. I will do some round pen work to help with this.
Overall I think he is going to make someone a fantastic little horse. He is eager to please and very willing he just does not know much. LOL He is not really spooky either, he does not like water on the black mats though. LOL Poor guy really highsteps over them. HAHAH I had a friend take pictures and she took some video which I am waiting for her to email them to me and I will get them to you when she does. Dusty is going to be a fun project I think”
