Shiney and Tuff is a fancy and kind 2014 bay gelding that catches everyone’s eye. He is a fluid mover, with a kind disposition. Even though he's not a tall horse, he’s very athletic and has the build of a full-size horse. We started Tino and he took quickly to being ridden. We think he’s an ideal prospect for a junior rodeo, calf or heel horse – nevermind an outstanding ranch horse for someone looking for a tough, willing to work smaller gelding.
His dam is Shiney Vaca Reina, a palomino mare from the Black Rock Ranch in Idaho who has produced nice foals for Long Pines. Tino is sired by PC Tuff Dual, a grandson of Dual Pep (NCHA $307,384; progeny earnings exceeding $25 million).
