Haunted Mesa - $7500

Updated: 4 days ago

Haunted Mesa, June 2015 16.2hh TB Gelding sired by King’s Empire (Empire Maker). Mesa is a big bodied, solid type that will definitely suit a taller rider if needed. I love his sire line and always find them to be super fancy, good moving athletic types. He came to us mid December and has just been hanging out on the farm, getting some time to adjust to the farm and gain weight. Overall, Mesa is pretty straight forward. He loads / unloads / trailers well and is fairly easy going in new places. I body clipped him in the stall loose shortly after arrival which he was good for too (only thing he didn’t like were the ears). Good to blanket, bathe, etc. He is shod all around with a fantastic foot, our farrier commented he should easily be able to go barefoot at least behind. That said, he was a bit nervous during his first shoeing here so that will be one thing to continue to work on. We have evaluated him at liberty and were not disappointed! He’s just as fancy, big moving and athletic as we predicted. He’s seriously a freak of nature in the movement department. He’s got lovely reach from his shoulder and great push from behind. I can only imagine what this one is going to look like with some more letdown, weight and muscle. He has a commanding presence about him and should really go be a show horse! He was brave down the jump chute and very smart. I think he could excel in nearly any discipline. He is not restarted under saddle at this time. He is RRP eligible.

He has a few non career limiting blemishes (old cold splints and had ripped a chestnut off his left hind at one point), none of this bothers him and is purely cosmetic. He has zero vices. He’s easy to have on the farm and quiet in the pasture.

While I don’t think he’d make a good first restart, someone with OTTB experience shouldn’t have an issue. I have tacked him and thrown him on the lunge line - he was a perfect gentleman and all business.

Priced at $7500.
