Shiney Face Dunnit aka: "Howard"
- 15.1H, 2013' sorrel AQHA / APHA gelding
Get ready to read a book - and I still will not have said enough about him - "Howard" is simply one of the best ones that I have ever owned, and an absolute joy to own and be around. If you are looking for that world-class, once-in-a-life-time, extremely special, personal horse - then this is him. Give me a call anytime, I absolutely love to talk about Howard...other than my two children, he is my pride and joy. I can tell you more memories and stories then you probably want to hear - I have spent many, many hours with him this past year. He is my buddy, and I can tell you every little tiny thing about him. I trade these horses for a living...and in 20 years, I have never once met one that I just had to keep for a while. It has taken an absolutely exceptional horse for me to keep one as a pet and not have a price tag on him - it's against my religion to keep a horse and not swap them... Howard has taught me a ton. He has changed me a lot personally, as a rider, and as an owner. There is never any person (total novice that does not know anything about horses, to world class horsemen) that sees Howard and doesn't walk up and comment on how exceptional he is. He has his own fan club here locally and he is well known in downtown, and at quite a few bars, coffee shops and restaurants. He has an incredible personality and is just as sweet, honest, willing, and kind as they come. If I was not raising two wonderful kids alone that deserve all my attention and funds while they are little, there would be no price tag that could buy this one from me. I hope to get to own one half as nice again when I am an empty nester! Howard is a son of Pale Face Dunnit and he was bred and raised by Craig and Ginger Schmersal, and is a prime example of their world class program. After being sold through their program as a prospect, he was finished and seasoned by Matt Palmer. He has NRHA earnings in several levels and with all levels of riders, and he is extremely solid and pure in the pen, easy to prepare, and easy to show. He currently lives at home and is maintained easily from home. Has been very lightly shown a couple of times this year, but has primarily been used for tons of events, photo shoots, and going to any extreme places that you do not usually take your horse. This guy absolutely LOVES going to town. He has been all over the country, most of the time bridle-less, and will go anywhere he is pointed, relaxed, soft, low headed - and with no bridle. I have never ridden a more trusting horse in new and scary situations, we have had a very hard time finding anything that grabs his attention and literally have not been able to find one thing that spooks him. He has been in huge crowded events, in the bars, in crowded downtown streets, around airplanes, helicopters, huge loud truck rallies, concerts, he has been at an event just about every weekend all year. Howard has been well cared for all of his life, and he reflects that. One of the very few, extremely rare, still exceptionally sound, healthy and about as close to perfect in all ways horses. These show horses do not often make it to this seasoned age, still this healthy, and this next to absolutely perfectly sound. He is as smooth and as uncomplicated and as trained as they come. He is light, but not the slightest but hot, reactive, or forward. He is extremely honest and easy to ride. Howard has gone bridle-less into some places and some situations, that I did not know a horse could safely go through without a bridle. He is by far one of the most bullet proof, most trustworthy, and most willing horses I have ever sat on! We landed a helicopter right next to him at an event one weekend and he never flinched. Our industry needs more "Howards" to go around. Everywhere we have been, he gets attention and compliments, from world class horsemen..to the kids that just want to pet "that horse with the cool eyes"...absolutely everyone loves this horse.
