Soot was born in Ramona, CA and spent his early years learning how to accept many things. We recently learned more about his parents and now know that his sire was Brabant, and the dam was Percheron/Drum horse. We have updated our website to include more details of those breeds.
We recently received some pictures of Soot as a baby and he was adorable!!
Soot came to our ranch in July of 2019 and has been learning numerous things. Before he turned 3 years old, we had bought the surcingle
in preparation for him pulling a wagon. He is exercised on a regular basis and
enjoys cantering in the round pen, pulling a tire around, and taking tight
turns when indicated to do so with the driving reins.
Now that he has turned 4 years old, is over 17 hands and nearly 1600 lbs, he is being worked under saddle and is learning what leg cues mean and how they relate to what he already knows from the driving reins. We are still on the lookout for a western saddle with a large enough gullet so we can use it on him.
