**For Sale** Bar D Mr Gray Finger “Freebie”
13 y.o. 14.2 hh gelding $37,500
Freebie has been there and done that, he helped me step up and build confidence back in 2012/13 and has since done the same for Jordan Driver. It is time for him to help someone else now. He’s very consistent, light, and easy. Runs in a hackamore or loose combo. You can also breakaway rope off of him. He’s very gritty and loves to run barrels, he has an awesome personality and is a fun horse to be around. He is very sound with minimal maintenance.
Freebie’s 1 quirk: He has to ride in the back stall of the trailer.
I will be home all week (Abilene, Tx) and he is sitting here ready for someone to come try him!! PM me to set up a time!
Our 2017 year will be coming to a close tonight with one last run as we will not be making a trip to Vegas. My Canadian Finals qualification rests in the hands of the ladies at the Grass Roots Finals tonight so that is still TBA, I wish you all good luck. I'll be the first one to tell you that this year was a roller coaster but to finish in the Top 20 of such a record breaking year I feel very thankful for. Anyone that knows Cartel knows he's not very personable and all he could do last night was nudge me with his head like he was asking "did I do it mom?" With all of my horses battling illnesses/injuries all year and him being no exception he stepped up every time I needed him and I feel like this was a huge accomplishment for us. I have felt an overwhelming amount of support this year but especially right here at the end. I was offered a horse by the person one spot above me, several that already have it made, and by friends that were going to give up their own races should I have taken them up on the offer and for those people I am so deeply appreciative, what a selfless and kind gesture. Thank you to my sponsors that are more like family now that have supported me through thick and thin. Thank you to my close friends and family who rode the storm with me day in and day out and never lost faith in me even when I did, you are why we made it this far. I know that God has amazing things in store because I have my family, friends, and an amazing team of horses, some new and some old resting up at home just waiting to throw the biggest party ever when we hear the words Jan 1 2018! Haha. I will be closing out the year on my old man R tonight, I feel like Cartel has given me every ounce of try he has and deserves to end the year with his great run last night. Congratulations Kimmie... from my figures it looks like you won the fight of the century, you & Foxy should be so proud. Congratulations to all 15 girls that will have their spot secured to Vegas tonight! God is so good to us all.
My rollercoaster of a year continues Cartel laid one down in Pendleton today, I'm so proud of him with everything he's been through the last month. Sitting 3rd in the round right now! I thank the Lord & what little strength I possess for keeping me on at the 2nd, I thought I was gone #PendletonRoundup #LeterBuck #TheGreenMile (same run, 2 videos)
The good Lord & my Daddy rode with us tonight.... Baby J & I were last out in the short go in Kennewick tonight & had to watch so many girls slip/slide around, I knew Baby J could handle it but the nerves were a little pressing! Won the round and split 2nd/3rd in the average! What a horse, he came through right when I needed him, love ya buddy

Thank you mom and Bo for this opportunity is all I can really say right now. This is "Raygan", 3 yo 3/4th brother to Bobbie Gene. My chance at another Bob I pray I can steadily keep him progressing as Bo has done an incredible job with him, I don't care how long it takes but I know he's going to be great. Happy
