Quarter Horse Stallion for Sale in Tampa, FL
"Zipper" is a wonderful gelding who needs a forever home. He was abandoned at our farm and has since been ridden very lightly and turned out. He has a great personality and loves to get attention. Zipper would need a very patient person to teach him how to go forward under saddle. He's not bad, he just lacks the confidence a good riding horses has. Zipper is good with mares, babies, geldings, minis, and donkeys. He must go to someone that plans on giving him a wonderful home full of love. The price is neg. to the right person. We just don't have the room and time to give to this super sweet guy. Serious Inquiries only!!
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.
