My name is Tex, although my registered name is Bubby’s Buddy – which is kind of silly, huh?! So, please call me Tex. I will give you one guess as to where I was born and raised. I am an Appendix Quarter gentleman born in 2007 and raised in (got you!) Idaho! I started my life as a working ranch horse as soon as I was old enough to be ridden. Please notice the brand on my left hip. The practice of branding is very common for big ranches to do to all their horses. It’s a great means of easy identification.
I am a flashy sorrel guy standing about 15.1 hands tall. I was donated to Fieldstone in January of 2020. My donors, Will, Louise and Christina Fraser of Chardon, thought I would be a wonderful addition. Since they had donated one of their other horses, Star, many moons ago, they knew what exceptional care I would receive here. The Fraser’s bought me when I was still a youngster from a girl who was riding me in contesting events. I did not enjoy that because I don’t like to run like that. The Fraser’s then taught me dressage. I excelled in that discipline and cleaned up in the show ring. They also took me to as many places as they could to trail ride. I was able to see so much!
I am very good with most of the activities in the ring except I don’t like anything on my ears. I have a very strong work ethic and I aim to please. I love to be groomed and stand very well when you are cleaning me up.
Please keep in mind that I am a little younger than some of the guys here. I also have a natural, forward and active gait – both at the walk and trot. So please don’t hang on my head or continue to pull on me to slow me down – that is my gait. I guess you might need some good running shoes to keep up!
I know I will be a great horse to help teach independent riders. I may need a little reassurance from my volunteer from time to time. I just want to please – so if you can be patient and understanding with me I would appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing you very soon! I am very excited to have this career where I am around so many people!
