Welcome to Horse for Sale in Texas

If you’re looking for a horse for sale in Texas or if you’re interested in trading a horse or having our help selling yours, you have come to the right place.

Just a little about me. I have been in the horse world for over 20 years and actively in the business for almost that many! I have traded, bought and sold many horses over that time and enjoy doing it. I enjoy meeting new people and riding a new horse. All who know me can say that my world pretty much revolves around these beautiful creatures.

I decided to start this website in order to do what I already am doing even better as well as to hopefully provide a way to stay home with my son a bit more!

I would be happy to help you find your new best friend or to help you find a great home for the one you already have!

AQHA palomino 2 yr old filly – SOLD

Cally Coe is a registered AQHA golden palomino filly. She is 2 years old and is halter broke. She leads great and stands tied, loads good and is very sweet. She came from a ranch in Colorado and seems to have been somewhat neglected in her first years. She is small and will probably remain on the small side. She has an excellent pedigree with Dash for Cash right on her papers. She will make a great family horse, playday horse or a very pretty broodmare or pretty much anything you want! She would be a great 4-H project horse. You can look up her pedigree on allbreedpedigree.com We are asking $400 obo and her price is very negotiable. We would also trade for hay!

Halter Training your young Foal

Here is a little information for you about how to halter train your young foal. It has worked for me! For our little discussion here let us assume that your foal is around 1-2 months old and hasn’t been handled a whole lot. If you have about 3 panels then you are in luck! Make your panels into a triangle and convince your mare and foal that they need to be in the middle of the triangle. Since it is a very small area you will be able to safely from the outside place your halter on the foal. The foal will most likely not enjoy this process but at least you are not hurting him or causing danger to yourself.

Now that you have the halter on the foal, you will need two people, one to lead the mare and one to lead the foal. Make sure that your lead rope for the foal is cotton, not nylon, so that you don’t get a rope burn! (know this from experience!) Lead the mare out and lead the foal out. The foal might run out or not be too willing to walk on the lead rope but keep holding on. It works best if you can get the foal to walk right between you and the mare. If the foal doesn’t want to walk forward, do not just pull on the lead rope. That will not work. You must either get another rope and gently place this around his hindquarters, like a figure eight and encourage him to walk forward from the pressure on his behind. For larger foals you can pull the lead rope to the side, causing him to be unbalanced and have to take a step in order not to fall over. Then pull the lead rope the other way so you zig zag around the pen. Eventually the foal will get tired of walking crooked and will start to follow you in straight lines. It is really neat how this works.

Keep working on his halter breaking every day and eventually he will get to where he leads without problems.

Good Training!!
