Willie - 2010, 16+ hands AQHA Registered Bay Roan Gelding
Willie (Toy Jets Beau #5311816) is a 2010 registered AQHA, bay roan gelding. He is out of our favorite mare, Millie, and sired by Truckles Beau. Willie is living up to our expectations from this cross. He is tall, should mature to 16+ hands, and is very elegant. The roan gene does give Willie a unique coloring during certain seasons but during the late spring and summer, he is a classic blood bay. It only took a few days of Willie’s formal training to realize he would be like his sire and dam – intelligent and a very willing student. He is proving to be a mellow guy that isn't bothered by much. We have been hauling Willie around to different arenas and taking him out on the trails in the Owyhees. He is always happy to go and handles himself very well. We believe Willie will be a lovely eventer or hunter/jumper, but trained him for all-around use. He will continue to hit the trails, work on extreme obstacles, carry flags...and be used for checking irrigation!
