Paint Stallion for Sale in Tampa, FL
I have a 15. 3H APHA solid gelding. He has a great personality, very intelligent and athletic. He is green broke, and has been trail ridden and worked in both english and western saddles. He would make a great cattle horse or eventing prospect. He needs a good rider, since I have not had the time to really train him - though he is broke. I will sell him to a good home only - so no horse dealers please. I am graduating college and do not have the time nor money to take care of him properly.
About Tampa, FL
When the pioneer community living near the US Army outpost of Fort Brooke was incorporated in 1849, it was called "Tampa Town", and the name was shortened to simply "Tampa" in 1855. The earliest instance of the name "Tampa", in the form "Tanpa", appears in the memoirs of Hernando de Escalante Fontaneda, who spent 17 years as a captive of the Calusa and traveled through much of peninsular Florida. He described Tanpa as an important Calusa town to the north of the Calusa domain, possibly under another chief. Archaeologist Jerald Milanich places the town of Tanpa at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor. The entrances to Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor are obscured by barrier islands, and their locations, and the names applied to them, were a source of confusion to explorers, surveyors and map-makers from the 16th century though the 18th century.
