Gelding for Sale in Bellevue, TX
Kylo was living at a boarding stable and his owners could no longer care for him so they donated him to Bluebonnet. Kylo has a stock horse type build. His coat, mane and tail are an incredible shade of red and he shines in the sun! Kylo’s foster mom jokingly calls him “Eeyore” as he stands with his head really low to the ground when he is resting and nothing really seems to bother him. He fits in well with the other horses, including a miniature horse, at his current foster home and is submissive towards them. He has great ground manners and will stay calmly tied for as long as you want to groom him or whatever! Kylo is not a big fan of dogs running around him. He will lower his head and pin his ears when dogs are around. Kylo is a cribber and, despite being out on pasture 24/7
... more», he still cribs excessively. He has evidently been doing it for many years as his upper teeth are worn down all the way. He cribs on metal gates and the wood in his lean-to shelter. Kylo's is broke to ride. His foster home has walked and trotted him in the round pen and walked around the pastures. He is rusty so will need a refresher and someone willing to put some time into getting him back into physical shape to be ridden. He does require a confident rider that can keep him from turning back to his favorite spots where he cribs and eats. He is slow and tires easily, so light riding would be best. His foster family feels he would make a great lead line horse.
About Bellevue, TX
The sparsely settled area developed around 1882, when it was selected as a railroad shipping station. The community has had several declines and resurges. In 1902, the community incorporated, but then it was almost wiped out by a tornado in 1906. During the Depression many residents left, but this trend was slowed by the discovery of petroleum. Afterwards, the decline continued.
