2016 AQHA Gelding

15.3 HH

We call this guy Mellow Yellow or Mellow for short. He is one of the most laid back and easy-going horses I have ever swung a leg over. 15.3 HH with good bone. Flashy Golden Palomino with two white socks and a blaze.

Mellow is an outstanding head horse that anyone could rope off of! He has taken us to the winners circle countless times and works the same on 4 head or 40 head. This summer alone he has won over $15,000. Winning the Canadian World Series Finale #13 roping and #9 World Series. He has been hauled to countless jackpots and rodeos and has been through a rope barrier. If you are just wanting to start team roping Mellow is very easy to ride and will take care of you. He makes the same run every time, doesn't get fast going left and won't move out till you want him to. He also has a really good move and snappy face if you are a more advanced team roper looking for something fancy for the high numbered ropings.

This guy is ridiculously handsome and gets noticed everywhere he goes.  He has never offered to buck or pull back, he's easy to catch and doesn't have any bad habits. He is not pushy or in your face but he's friendly and really easy to get along with.

One of my favorite parts about this guy is he is not buddy sour. He stands quiet tied to the trailer and rides off alone without getting worked up and worrying about his buddies. Mellow is the same horse is you are riding him every day or if he is laid off for a month. Saddle up and ride off with no funny business or freshness.

Mellow was started with a reining foundation and is soft in the bridle, rides collected and correct and has all the buttons. He is a bigger horse but he really knows how to get under himself and stop. He is smooth to ride and has a nice stride. He can really cover ground without being too long strided.

Mellow is a well-rounded horse and is great in the arena and out of the arena. We spend a lot of time with our horses working cattle on the ranch. This guy knows what a hard day of work looks like and isn't scared to put on some miles in some rough country. He has spent countless days gathering, checking fence, weaning, sorting and branding. He is sure-footed, confident and will take care of you no matter the situation.

If you're vertically challenged like me but still like riding a bigger horse or just have trouble getting on or off- Mellow is the dude for you. Get on your mounting block, side of the trailer or stand on the fence and just snap your fingers and he will side pass over and let you get on.

Mellow has also mastered the pickup. Drop your glove? Rope? Hat? No problem- Mellow will pick it up off the ground and hand it to you in the saddle.

.Solanos Gold Phoenix has been a big part of our family and we are very proud to offer him to the 2023 Cowgirl Cadillac Horse Sale. We are happy to answer any questions or show him to anyone interested in trying him.
