Poster 17 year old Tennessee Walker gelding with tack. Spencer is a beautiful paint with a quiet demeanor and a smooth gait. I have been riding him on the trails twice a week for several years and have recently been troubled with old age, mine, not his. He is very easy to live with, he stands quietly while being groomed and bathed, he even comes in from the pasture when called. On the trails he is eager yet obedient and accustomed to having a dog run along with him. The tack includes a newly new saddle from National Bridle, a Tennessean model specifically sized and shaped to fit gaited horses. Asking $2,500 for my favourite boy and $1,400 for the tack, but this is negotiable. He can be seen at Takala Trails Ranch. David 250-327-4946 (14-Feb)
