Paint Gelding for Sale in Anderson, TX
Tommy is a 13 year old registered with the American Paint Horse Association as a red roan Paint gelding. He is just under 16 hands. Tommy rides with a bit and neck reins with leg pressure. My 13 year old daughter used him for pleasure riding on weekends. We are selling him as we live in Houston and do not get to ride Tommy as often as we thought we would and we feel he should not become a pasture horse. He rides smooth and likes to go slow although he will easily trot or lope. We noticed he is barn sour at times now since he is not ridden regularly anymore. We do not lunge him when we ride and sometimes (not every time) he is lazy which he used to never be. He needs to be ridden regularly again. He stands quietly while being saddled/bridle, groomed, fly sprayed, bathed, picking his feet,

He is easy to catch and loves attention. He is calm with other horses, loves to be around them but is happy to be bossed around rather than being the boss. He had his annual vet check along with all his vaccines (EWT/FLU/WN Vetera 4XP +WN, Strangles, Equine Herpesvirus & Rabies) in July including Coggins test. Tommy has been dewormed with a rotation of dewormers every 6 weeks and the farrier comes every 5 weeks. My daughter took him to a barn in Houston for a week and rode English on him as well which he responds to very well. If you would like to see Tommy we are only available on the weekends, Saturday/Sunday
About Anderson, TX
Long occupied by indigenous peoples, this area was initially settled by Europeans and creole Spanish during Spanish colonial rule. Anglo-Americans began to enter the area in the 1820s from the South of the United States. After Mexico achieved independence, it accepted additional settlers from the United States into eastern Texas. It allowed them to practice their own religion, if they swore loyalty to Mexico. A few structures in town date from this period.
