Here is your chance to own the horse that comes around once in a lifetime.  He’s a one of a kind from his unique look to his gentle temperament. This stunning gelding is as fancy broke as they come; lead changes, spins, slides. He does everything with the style you'd expect from his pedigree.

Excellence and versatility run in his blood - he's by the Yellow Roan of Texas (LTE $73,000) and out of a daughter of Spooks Gotta Gun. Barracuda is the total package - use him to rope, ranch, show or pleasure ride, he will be your top pick no matter what the day brings. A rare gem, he's flashy, cowy, broke, sane and sound. He's a horse anyone will be proud to have in their barn.

There's much more to Barracuda than his stunning looks; he's built to last a lifetime with outstanding conformation. (15hh, 1150#) In addition to being skilled in the arena, he's very experienced outside. Always fun to ride, he's been my personal pick to use in the rugged mountains of New Mexico gathering cattle on a ranch since the spring of his three year old year. He's sure footed and trustworthy through any terrain and will go all day long until the job is done. Although young, he has the mentality and quiet temperament of an aged horse.

Always willing and eager to please with more whoa than go, Barracuda's quiet, gentle temperament has made training easy. Nothing rattles his easygoing demeanor (I’ve tried) – I even rode him in an 8’ inflatable unicorn costume at our debut horse show for Halloween.  He did an outstanding job, winding up Reserve High Point Open Horse. The ranch horse and reining classes are right up his alley.  He will happily do anything asked – jump barrels, rope steers, shoot guns, ride bridleless – it’s all the same to him.  Barracuda is lots of fun to head steers on, it’s easy for him. He’s quiet in the box, cows to a steer and faces smoothly.  Barracuda has been my main ride for 2 years, there’s not much I haven’t done on him – I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

Barracuda is incredibly friendly and he'll meet you at the gate, ready to go for whatever the day brings. Jump on bareback with a halter if you're in a hurry, he'll be the same whether you rode him yesterday or a month ago. One of the smartest horses that I've ever had the pleasure of owning; Barracuda will lay down on command and push a ball around.  Always easy to be around, Barracuda has great ground manners.  He’s good to clip, bathe, shoe – he enjoys the attention.

His charismatic attitude makes everyone fall in love with him when they meet him.  Call to set up a time to come visit this special gelding, you’ll love him as much as I do.
