ZI IS SOLD

zi-brad-ball.jpg

Zi is a 4yr old, AQHA registered (4365341) palomino mare (Moonshine Falleen).   We gave her the barn name of "Zi" which is Lakota for "yellow".  
 
We purchased Zi with the intention of training and reselling her.  She is sound, feet are trimmed, bridle path clipped, 5 way shots including W/Nile, neg. coggins, no vices.
 
 We are selling her as "started under saddle", "obstacle trained" and "trail ridden". As of Dec 19th she has had about 6 rides on her and probably 6 hours of riding time.
 
I've added Zi's pedigree at the bottom of this page.
 
"Started Under Saddle" Includes leading from a loose lead rope. Loads, ties, stands for haltering, worming, bathing, clipping, farrier, bridling, saddling, mounting, and able to be ridden by an intermediate rider in an inclosed area. Does well at lateral neck flextion. Goes forward, stops, backs up, and turns by direct rein cues. Starting to understand turns by leg cues as well as go, stop, and backup by seat postions. Walk, trot, and cantor from upper leg cues as well as verbal cues.

(Nov 6th, 04) I decided Zi was ready for me to climb aboard. It just so happened that Brad & Mallory come over to take Blue & Ranger on a trail ride. So since I had Zi all saddled up, Brad was ready to take Zi on her first ride. All went very well.
 
Zi is carrying a snaffle bit in her mouth but the reins are attached to the rope halter. She has accepted the bit just fine and does not mess with it at all.
 
Here are Zi's "First Ride" photo's.

SHE GIVES THE PUSH BARRELS A GOOD TRY

IT'S STUCK SO BRAD BACKS HER OFF

STOPPING AT A GOOD SPOT ON THE LAST OBSTACLE

At this point Zi's riding time has been less than 30 minutes from the time Brad swung into the saddle, to standing with her front feet on the platform. She did quite well. Zi should be on the trail before too long.
 
 

******************************
(Nov.13)
Although using horses to hunt deer in Minnesota is not legal, our horses may end up being used to pack out wild game out West. Zi was a little unsure of the fresh deer hide at first with a few minutes work she was accepting it on her back.
As I pulled it off and let it fall at her feet she stepped on it and sniffed it.

I rode Zi today (Nov.14) out in the pasture. This was her second time with anyone on her back. She was a little hesitant to go but did ok. She is doing well with the bit in her mouth although we still have not attached the reins to it. In these two photo's I had neglected to put her bridle on and didn't go back to the barn for it since I wasn't intending to use the bit anyway.

Zi is 14.1 hands tall. Short enough to easily mount, yet large enough to carry most riders all day long.  My combined  weight with saddle is about 250 lbs. This is ok for short rides.
 
For 10 to 20 mile trail rides 180 lbs would be about the most she should carry.

(May, 05) Zi enters and exits a tight trailer stall with no problem. She has now had several hours of road time and has behaved quite well.
