2009 Two Eyed Red Buck Sorrel Gelding 

Rusty is a 3-year-old gelding by Two Eyed Red Buck and out of a Joe Jack Honey Bar mare, the Pitzer Ranch's Magic Cross.  He is 15.2 with 4 white socks and a blaze.  He should mature to 15.3H.  I raised his full sister, Ginger, 2007 and am working with his 2011 full brother.  They have wonderful dispositions, level-headed,  easy-going and willing attitudes.  View Pedigree.

Don't let his age discourage you.  He will be one of those horses that anyone can ride.  He is already a good fit for most riders.  Rusty has been handled since we purchased him as a weanling.  He moves nice, is athletic, leads with respect, clips, loads and backs out of a trailer.  Hauled in a stock trailer as well as  a slant load trailer.  He gets along great with the older horses as well as baby sitting the weanlings and new horses.  He stands for the farrier and stands quietly at the trailer. 

Rusty spent several days in the mountains camping this summer.  We rode in a small group one day and then a group of 20 the next.  He is confident and not bothered by other horses.  He walks out nicely, no jig!  He crosses rivers where it is boggy stepping in and jumping up the bank to get out on the other side.  It started to rain during one of the rides.  I put my long yellow slicker on while I was riding.  We encountered ATV's, motorcycles, dogs and heard gun shots around us.

He was started under saddle, April of his 2-year-old year with no issues.  Actually, his first ride was climbing on him bareback from the fence with a halter and lead rope on.  He has ridden in the arena, around our property with dogs & loose horses running along with us, hauled to local trailheads with other horses, hikers, bikers and traffic on the nearby roads and camping in the mountains.  I have ridden him out around our property by himself with no issues.  He continues to take on all new experiences with a level head and calm manner.  He can be brought in from weeks of pasture, saddled and ridden out without any issues or groundwork first.  He has a great start with lots of exposure.  He is ready to go in any direction you'd like.
