No doubt you will absolutely fall in love with Tex! He has the most caring soul, a willing disposition, and strapping good looks, yet has an undercover comedian side at the same time.

Once you get to know him, he will make you laugh each time you're around him. If you are looking for something to enjoy, EVERY time you want to ride, whether that's daily or twice a year, Tex is the guy for you.

As a OWN SON of SMOOTH AS A CAT(LTE $500,000+, Sire of more than $31 million), it's no wonder Tex can operate the way he does. Even though he sometimes gets called out as a Chunky Monkey, he hits the ground soft and easy. Better yet though, he will do anything to please you at any speed.

Tex can quickly switch into Billy goat mode in rough terrain, tank mode in muddy spots, auto pilot in the branding pen or while working the gates, cruise control in the show pen, speed demon mode to catch and doctor that crazy heifer, then switch over to luxury car mode for everything else. With his age and experience comes wisdom, and he knows just how to use it.

I have thanked Tex countless times for keeping both my kids safe in the wide open country of Montana and Wyoming. I have no reservations about sending them to the other side of the draw on their own, or if I need to disappear over the next hill I trust they will be absolutely fine with him. Not to mention all the confidence he has given me in the branding pen. I am in no way what you would consider, 'Handy with a rope' but while I'm amongst those little bovines on Tex, I feel 100% safe and he makes it fun!

Commotion never phases him. Tex is used to bawling calves, mad mama cows, heavy machinery, an ill-mannered dog named Dwayne, kids jumping rope, riding bikes, zipping by on scooters or tearing about on 4 wheelers, yep he's accustomed to all the things a family does on a daily basis.

Although his happiest place is in the great outdoors, he is always willing to go lope pretty circles in the arena. As a lesson horse he makes an immediate adjustment to his rider, plus he stays responsive and polite, all while carrying his head level looking adorable. Everyone loves his personality and he loves being doddled over!

Ride him Western, English, bareback, frontwards, backwards or sideways, he will be absolutely safe. Clippers, baths, vaccinations, deworming, shoeing, doesn't matter, Tex is a perfect gentleman for all of it.

We know we will miss Tex, but we trust he will be going to his forever home. A barn favorite for sure, this big Teddy bear will be happy to be your next top horse.
