    HA! "One little bucking session" documented where the guy's but is some 2' off the saddle on his way to the dirt.

    And, 15.8? Hmmm..

    Seriously though, my horse has a 'little bucking session' the first few rides of the season but he just canters very animated-ly behind. That is what I envisioned when I read the ad. Pix clarified that pretty quick!

    Holy crap! They must not want to sell him very badly. Not only are those pictures rodeo stock worthy, they want $5,000. Not to mention he's the first 15.8 hand horse I've ever seen. But kids can ride him great, must be if you no longer want said kids.

    Just looked at it again. One little bucking session? Oy

    With a great ad like that I bet they have people knocking down the door to hand them the $5,000...

    ^^ Seriously. If he can buck, he has value to a rough stock contractor.

    wow!! I wonder which "kids" he lets ride it!! Not this kid! But, stock contracters might be very interested if this horse can buck with some regularity. At least the ad if its real, is sort of honest and they are NOT marketing him as a beginner been there done that horse!

    5k CAD, so that'a 5066.00USD at today's exchange rate. Just in case that's a deal breaker for any of you

    I don't know what to be freaked out about the most (aside from the bucking of course) : 15.8h or 2000lbs. I had my 17h TK weighed once and he was only 1253.

    He's picky with his food, that's a deal breaker for me.
