Big and pretty and gentle! Biz checks all the boxes.
We have had this gelding for 3 years and in that time we have used him for everything including gathering and sorting bucking horses, packing flags at rodeos and breaking other horses to drive. He has also been a model in several photoshoots and we have confidently let guests ride him.
As he matured we got curious about his lineage and did a DNA test (photo above) that came back showing Percheron and Lipizzaner! His carriage backs up those findings. He has a bright eye, long flowing tail, that beautiful gray color and a huge personality.
On the trail he is an ace! He is very sure footed, will cross any kind of water and goes where you point him.
In the arena we have put a variety of riders on him to carry flags and take introductions on, all under the bright lights with loud music and big crowds. He loads well and is good to haul.
When I broke my back last spring he was laid off for 7 weeks and the first time we saddled him after that was to let an equine travel writer go to a branding. He took very good care of her.
At 17 hh he is big enough to pack around a big man and gentle enough to be enjoyed by the smallest woman. He will sidepass to a fence, bucket, rock, bale of hay, or anything else you can think of, to let you get on.
Biz has good ground manners, is easy to catch, good to bathe and has good hard feet. We have run him barefoot or shod and the farrier said "I wish every horse on the place had his feet".
He is good with other horses and is an easy keeper on pasture.
Along with his good looks and easy temperament, he is really nicely broke to ride and drive. He keeps his cool in a harness, even with green horses. Under saddle he pivots off his hock and gets back at "whoa" like one should. He will also sidepass and two track under saddle or bareback.
English or western, his cadence is just dreamy.
