AQHA #4121223 - 2000 Palomino Stud Colt
SOLD to Mark and Randa Nugent of Nugent Ranches in CanadaThank you Mark and Randa. I hope he turns out to be another Barrel Champion for you.
Bandit showed his "Cow Sense" and natural cutting ability from the very beginning. By the third day he was running across the stall and coming to a sliding stop. Then he would jump to the left and the right and acting just like he was cutting a cow out of a herd and holding them there. He was a true NATURAL at it. It wasn't something that was just a fluke either. He did this over and over again while I watched him. He'd run to one end, do a sliding stop, run to the other end stop and bob and weave and then back to the other end for another sliding stop, etc. It was incredible. He still does this out in the pasture. He stops on a dime.
Bandit is Doc Bar, Easily Smashed [On his papers}, Six Chick, Majestic Prince, Doc's Hickory [On his papers], Foolish, Easy Jet, Smashed Casanova [On his papers, Grandsire] bred. He has a good solid racing background on his dams side as well as a Champion Cutting/Reining Horse background on his sires side.
He has been vaccinated for Tetanus, West Nile Virus, Strangles and the 5 Way starting from when he was born as well... with the exception of West Nile Virus. Last year was the first year we vaccinated for that. He has been wormed every three months from 3 months of age, alternating wormers each time. He was just wormed again at the end of April. All horses on the farm are on the exact same trimming, Vaccination and Worming program.
We usually wait until our horses are 3 years old before we do any extensive saddle breaking to insure that their knees are closed. However, if he is like the rest of our horses we have started training he should be a breeze and without a hint of buck in him. He has been handled the same way from birth as the rest of our stock is. And considering the temperament and sweet, kind disposition of his dam I expect him to be a real sweetheart to ride and train. :)
This is a guy that you don't want to pass up. Use him for a while and then put him to stud. With his breeding he could really put some nice foals on the ground for you. And as an added bonus you've got great color to boot.
