$$ Cocktail - 2010 AQHA heel horse/all-around/gentle riding gelding

"Cocktail" aka Kids Rocket Rodder is a 2010 AQHA buckskin gelding who is one of those tolerant, try-hard geldings that are worth their weight in gold. This guy isn't the fanciest broke but he has some user-friendly buttons; he'll turn around, move off leg, gives his face, etc. He doesn't have an ounce of larceny in him and is game to try anything. We named him Cocktail because he is the horse you ride at the end of the work day, your "cocktail" to relax. He tolerates Trick, the 5 year old boy riding and mauling all over him. He has been roped on - both out of the box (heeling) and in a branding/ranch situation, I wouldn't call him a "rope horse" but he gets the job done and has potential to go farther in the arena. Cocktail has been extensively ridden out on the trails, crosses water, and goes where you point him. He stands about 14.3hh and is sound with clean legs and good feet, currently barefoot. We are located near Bakersfield CA and transport can be arranged to anywhere in the US.
