Missouri Fox Trotter
5 years old
Price: $7,500 CAD plus GST
Baby Duck is a 5-year-old champagne Missouri Fox Trotter mare with a great pedigree. She comes from a long line of horses bred for their colour and gait. Her dam was registered but not DNA verified so Baby Duck is not eligible for registration with MFTHBA. Baby Duck demonstrates a beautiful example of a fox trot. She also has a gorgeous canter and flat walk. Baby Duck is one of the smoothest horses you’ll ever ride. No need to hold her in gait, she does it all on her own. She has been exposed to gunfire, cows, wildlife, dogs, water, bridges, you name it.
This mare has been on multiple trips to the mountains, including the Panther and the Ya Ha Tinda. She even swam in Eagle Lake! She has been high lined and in a standing stall. Baby Duck is not spooky or silly on the trail. She will ride in the front or the back. She has been ridden on group trail rides and alone. She also canters on command and picks up both leads. She is easy to catch and good for the farrier. Baby Duck may be small but her personality is as big as her engine; she never quits. She is bold, curious and there is no doubt she enjoys life.
Baby Duck is not a horse for just anyone, she is kind of like a mule that way. She has a dynamic personality and she is very expressive. She will require an experienced handler who is able to be soft, yet strict at the same time. It is very important that anyone interested in her is able to come to our ranch and spend time with us to make sure it is a good match. Baby Duck has a forever home here, any prospective buyers need to prove to us that they are up to the task of our little fox trotter.
