"Barney" was discovered in a Craigslist ad in an "at risk" situation, so a benevolent group of friends purchased him in hopes of finding him the perfect home.

A handsome, stout Morgan gelding with beautiful buckskin coloring, he is looking for a best friend to share new adventures! Not only does he ride and drive, but reportedly he's been used on cows and trails in the past.

Currently, we're working on his arena skills and you can see how mellow he is in nature—he handles barking dogs, rattling vehicles and more without a care. He does come with some trust issues that would benefit from a relationship with his handler, which is a true Morgan trait (they love their people!). While he's not an "ATV" type to be ignored and used once a month, he would be a great partner to share a working relationship. He is a handsome guy that will make his new best friend proud!

Background: From what we've been able to gather, this nice gelding went from his breeder, Ozark Mountain Morgans, to ranchers who trail rode and worked cattle on him. The ranchers sold him to a family as a first horse. Their young daughter (we do not know how young) on his and her first time out of the round pen, had an unfortunate experience where Barney spooked and jumped a fence, possibly injuring himself. We've found that Barney gets calmer the more time we spend with him. He seems to enjoy a mutual trusting relationship. Regular spooky stuff doesn’t phase him (barking dogs, rattling trailers, falling ladders), but until you've spent a few weeks getting to know each other and Barney learns his new environment, as with all new horses, we would recommend staying vigilant.

We've found Barney to be uncomplicated and generally good thinking, and hope to find him his new best friend. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
