"Shamus," 2007 Gelding

Pedigree     Photos and Videos

  • Born 5/30/2007

  • Sire:  Mainly Merlin, light/silver grullo bulldog-built stallion

  • Dam:  Sinnifs Peppy Magic, exported to The Czech Republic

  • Shamus was sold as a baby to Broken A Ranch. On January 1, 2012, the owner of Broken A Ranch unexpectedly passed away, and we got Shamus back to care for and to look for his forever home.

  • 90 days of training, likes to be ridden. Shamus likes people, and is easy to catch. He was ridden by a trainer in NE Missouri, where he was ridden on roads and along a highway. Shamus does not neck rein yet, but likes to be ridden down the trail. This is what one of Liz's trainers said about him:

    "I have ridden Shamus only a few times, and it had been a year after his training, with no one riding him in between. The very first time I got on him, he seemed a little surprised, but he rode right off when asked to. He moves away from leg pressure very well, and never got lazy about it. Due to the footing during the time I rode, I only rode him at the walk and trot. However, he previous trainer had him loping down the ditch of a highway on the 4th day of training. He's very smart, and picks things up very quickly. He also has an extremely good work ethic, and seems to be a lot happier when he has a job to do.

    When he walks, he likes to go fast and get things done. When he trots, he is happy to go at whatever speed you desire, and he is so smooth and fluid. His working trot would be comfortable to sit all day long, in my opinion.

    In the field that I rode him in, there were logs, a culvert from an old driveway, and a big manure pile. I would ride him over the logs, and he would pick his feet up and be sure to clear them. I would ride him up and down the steepest part of the culvert (even though it was only a step or two) and he would never hesitate, and navigate it without any problems. I would stop him with his front end on top of the culvert, and the rear on the bottom, and vice versa, and make him just stand there. He just waited patiently until I told him to move off. I also asked him to climb up and down the manure pile, and wade through it (it would sink a foot and a half or so), an he did so without panicking or anything else. I was really surprised. He would just kind of put his head down and power on through it.

    I also noticed while lunging him that he is really agile, and can bend around his barrel really well. I think he would be an awesome athlete. Do to this and his big boned stature, I would be comfortable taking him through some really rough country. I think he is sturdy enough to handle just about anything. I also think, with his work ethic, that he would be great in an environment where he is used and has a job everyday, or at least most days. I do, however, feels he needs proper conditioning for work
    (when Shamus came back to Iowa in January, 2012, he had not had exercise in quite some time due to staying in a small pen after Liz moved). I would still consider him green broke, as he has had just over 90 days training, and hasn't seen a bunch of different obstacles. I think that after 30 more days on consistent riding and conditioning, anyone would be happy to have him as their work horse, and I think he would rarely let you down."

  • Estimating 14.2 hh, but I will measure him and post his official height soon.

  • As a foal, Shamus had two teeth knocked out. His permanent teeth grew in a little crooked. An equine dentist said they are wearing fine, but might periodically need floated at the front if they don't wear properly as they continue to grow. At age 5, he has never been floated and has no sharp points, and did not need worked on. Click here to see a picture of his front teeth.

  • Tested NEGATIVE for HERDA, GBED, and PSSM1 by Animal Genetics Laboratory (not a carrier of any of those defects).

  • Proceeds from his sale, less expenses, will be offered to Liz's family or to her memorial.

  • Contact us if you are interested in purchasing Shamus before he is given a riding refresher and officially offered for sale.
