Information Financials/Records*

Tango was rescued from the feedlot by Columbia Basin Equine Rescue. When he was pulled from the feedlot he had 8 people who had put in applications to adopt him, so he was thought to be a safe horse to pull. However, after he was safe and off the lot each and every one of those home offers fell through. By the time his quarantine was over, there was no one to take him... so I said he could come with me and I would find a home for him.

After he arrived at my place I immediately got some nice new photos of him. I also ran him through some ground work excersizes to see what he knew. He has decent ground manners, but what really struck me about him was how very calm, patient, and willing he was. He is a nice solid 4 year old Appaloosa gelding and with his personality is suitable for just about any rider after some initial training.

I got Tango registered and started looking for a home for him. While talking to a lady about another horse she mentioned to me how her grown daughter had fallen in love with Tango. After talking to the daughter at length, I decided that this would be a good match and so we started on the arrangements for Tango to go to her.


Tango came from a breeder out of Idaho. He was part of a herd dispersion before he got to the feedlot. Tango's breeder is known for horses with excellent foundation lines that are crossed with halter type Quarter Horses.
