2017 bay gelding by ILL Be Smart X Babes HB Starlight.
ILL BE HANK - “Nemo” is a 6-year-old bay gelding with a pedigree that’s rare to find! He is an own son of Ill Be Smart, a legendary NCHA stallion who passed away the same year Nemo was born. He is kind, gentle and safe for everyone to ride but has lots of talent and ability when asked for it. Nemo’s long black mane and tail give him a flashy look that makes sure to catch everyone’s eye. When we purchased Nemo he was 4 years old, started in the reined cow horse, and was an 11-year-old girl’s favorite horse to pull out of the pasture to ride. Nemo is great to ride in all aspects of ranch work and has been started in the breakaway and heeling. He was used in the sunshine of Arizona all winter breaking in steers. He is very broke and willing to go any direction his new owners point him. Keep an eye out for his videos and don’t hesitate to reach out for more information or questions.

Aquaman has been roped on in the arena and will excel in any direction you take him; heading, heeling, or breakaway. We believe his best fit would be for a lower number header to take to jackpots and he is ready to go! He has been with me since he was 4 years old and he has never disappointed. Keep an eye out for his videos and don’t hesitate to reach out for more information or questions. Jared Parke 208-539-0272 or Candida Eldridge 208-863-8185.
