Now we rarely get horses like this, but our buyer brought us this gem. Chocolate is a Warmblood, Quarter horse cross. He was used as a lesson horse to teach low level jumping and English riding. His great ability is that he also will go along the trail western style also. His kind disposition and his great manners make him a wonderful family candidate, a good lesson horse or just a fun all around animal. Chocolate is 14 years old.(sale pending)
This darling Welsh pony was purchased for a family for their daughter. The daughter has gone into other pastimes and he is no longer being used. This pony is a gem. You can rope off of him, trail ride him and any child can get along with him. He is a beautiful pony that stands 13 2 hands. Take a look for a good grandchild model or a good young rider that wants to learn to rope and move cattle. Rosco will do it all. For information on Roscoe call Scot at 361 386 0032 The pony can be seen in Ganado Texas. We loved this pony and Scott will give you all the information you need about him. We would like to help sell him as he was a rare find and deserves a home where he is being used. Rosco is 9 years old.

Our Designer horses!
We would like to ask our prospective buyers to give us a good description and outline of the horses you are looking for. We would like to encourage you to email us, or call us telling us exactly what you are looking for in a horse. There are eight criteria we look at when we determine if we can "match" you to a horse. 1. Safety. 2. The need. What do you want to do with the horse? Trail ride, ranch ride, versatility play days etc. 3. What is your skill level? 4. Where are you keeping the horse? This allows us to determine the suitability of our horses to YOUR environment. 5. Are you going to haul your horses to ride? Obviously easy loading is a MUST. 6. What are the pasture mates? 7. Who is going to ride the horse? Children, family or single rider need is a question we ask. WHEN WE DETERMINE WHAT KIND OF PARTNER YOU NEED, THEN WE CAN SUITABILITY FIND YOU A MATCH. 8. What price range are you looking in ?
We ask you to come to Tonkawood for an evaluation ride so we can see what kind of partner you want and need that way with high gas prices you do not waste a trip for a horse and we can make a good match for you. Please note that we are not seeking to critize your riding as we get all kinds of riders, but the overriding goal is to have you enjoy the horse, the sport and the love based on your needs and skills. If you come to Tonkawood and do an evaluation ride, we will then seek a partner for you, determine the suitability for you and then send you pictures. If you live to far, then please give us as much information as you can so we can make sure we show you a candidate that suites your needs and suites the horse. If you like the horse, after an evaluation ride, we send pictures, and if the look suites you, we will then HOLD the horse for you until you can come to see it. We also ask that you check out our sold column and give us an idea of the type of "look" you like. That cuts down time, effort and money by pre qualifying a horse for you.
Our horses must meet the standard of safety we require for all of them. No horse can be perfect at all times, and circumstances can occur that render the horse unsuitable or the rider not in tune. Some horses are better suited to individual needs than others, that is why we are asking you to give us a list so we can determine if and how a horse will suite your needs.
