TBA SPARK OF WITEZ “Sparky”

Status: Broke to Ride Western (Sensitive energy, was badly abused by male trainer, so goes best with experienced calm female rider.) Breed: Half Arabian/Spanish Mustang Color/Sex/Height: Red Liver Chestnut / Gelding / 15hh Foaling Date/Breeder: April 20, 2004 / The Broken Arrow Registration No.: HAHA 1A354227 Sire: Nickohli Witez BA (Purebred Arabian) Dam: TBA Barbie (Arabian-QH / Spanish Mustang) Price:  Keeping  as pet. I badly hurt my back Aug. 2016 It had not healed well, Dr’s are not recommending riding, so need to cut back on work load.  So, I plan to keep Spark as a pet, and which ever of the other for that left after three are rehomed,  for company for him.  We vaccinated annually in March for rabies, tetanus, E-W sleeping sickness, and West Nile.

SPARK started out right away as a friendly fellow. A beauty with his nice muscling, straight legs, and pretty dished face. He has an upside down raindrop shaped star on his forehead, a tiny streak where the halter nose-band lays, a snip, and a 3/4 white boot area on the right hind pastern for white markings. Spark is ranch raised and is use to being with cattle, as he is usually wintered with our herd bulls during half the winter months, so knows how to watch out for himself and how to manage himself with being around average natured bulls. He's summer pasture is a ranch/cattle type of pasture with barbwire fencing, so he is also familiar with that type of fencing. A full brother to Spark's sire was a very successful cutting horse in All-Breed and Arabian competition. He was especially competitive against Quarter Horses. Spark is registered as a half Arabian, but in reality he is 23/32 Arabian, 1/4 Spanish Mustang, and 1/32 Quarter Horse. He has about 5 lines to *Witez II. Spark was also trained for stake strap tie out as a weanling. Spark had 45 days of professional training in summer of 2007 for western riding. And an additional 30 days of professional training spring 2008. He has been used to sort cattle, trail riding, wagon trains, parades and carries a flag.  He side passes, and will side pass up to a mounting step and stands for mounting.  In 2011 he was sent to a new trainer for just spring brush up training after a long winter lay off, that was a big mistake, the trainer was not a good choice and did ruin him. After that Spark was scared to death of whips, still is, if popped to much and he required a lot of rehab, which was successfully done in part by us and also by a wonderful professional lady trainer from Grace City. Now Spark is back in the right direction, but he has flash backs now and then which causes him anxiety.  Up until my back injury, I had continued  rehabbing him while just riding him here at the ranch, in drill team, trail riding, and cattle sorting.  Then in Feb. of 2018 he founded on us, for some strange reason, as no change in his feed.  But it was a milder case, we did not see him pointing or hobbling.  The deep snow at the time, maybe helped.  He has a home.  For more information, please Contact Us.
