Adopted: January 27, 2014
Dallas is officially adopted and doing wonderfully at home with his new family. He has settled in wonderfully and is continuing to gain his confidence. His adopter absolutely loves him and the two of them have been taking things slow getting to know each other, but they are proving to make a great team!
So far he has made great headway and has even been down the road and handled cars, trucks and motorcycles like a champ :)

Dallas is an 8 year old Quarter Horse gelding who stands 15hh. He loads, hauls, is good with other horses, good for the farrier and is very sweet. He is very well-broke, but is quite nervous and was ridden harshly in the past. Since his arrival, we have put a dozen rides on him to help refresh him and give him a new start.
He is good on the trails by himself and is fine with dogs running on his heels. He was said to have a bit of a cowhop to him, but has shown no signs of it on our rides. He is still nervous and in need of more work, but he is at a point now where we are comfortable with finding him a new home.
Ideally we are looking for a laid-back trail home for him with a relaxed rider who is willing to take their time and build a bond with him. He is very willing and tries really hard, but he is sensitive under-saddle and would be best suited to an experienced horse person who can be soft and kind to him.
