Quarter Horse Gelding for Sale in Mahomet, IL
Socks is a dark bay with flashes of white. He is 16 years old according to 2 vets. He is just due for his coggin and vaccinations. He is a very spirited and intelligent horse yet if handled with respect, responds well to commands. Socks is definitely for a very experienced intermediate rider.He is the kind of horse I always loved, but at 66 years old, I am not as agile as I once was. If you are quiet with him, you will win, but if you are loud and harsh with him, you will lose. He is a very very easy keeper.
About Mahomet, IL
The village of Mahomet was first settled in 1832 on the banks of the Sangamon River. It was the first community to be established in modern-day Champaign County. The original village name was Middletown, possibly because it is half-way between the towns of Danville and Bloomington. In 1871, the name of the village was changed to Mahomet because there was already another Middletown in Illinois, which was causing mail problems. Most early settlers came from Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania and chose to reside in Mahomet because there was abundant water from the Sangamon River and abundant trees.
