AKA NERO-- The protégé
Buddy's Mountain Major
Here is Nero's Sire. A well known stallion for his temperament and gait at The Liberty farm in Mt. Horeb, WI. He is very prolific and has offspring all over the country. This stallion has been known to ride well at Expos and is extremely gentle! That is why we chose him to cross to one of the best mares around! Pictured here in his 20's, he still shows those new to the breed all about the RMHA gait!

Always a sturdy foal with tons of personality!
Introductory Stud fee: $1000 plus mare care
(Discounts on approved mares)- Proven to be very fertile - Catching his mares on the first cycle.
Genetics: Ee Ch/n aa n/Z
Nero carries a black, red, champagne and silver gene. His combinations for breeding will be endless. Not only will he be a producer of finely gaited, friendly and balanced foals but will also have the possibility for color.
Nero is the last foal from Begley's Candy Girl (daughter of SONNY)- a rare carrier of Champagne from the Wayne's Dixie line of Champagnes within the RMHA. We believe this to be a strong and correct mountain type horse. We love riding Candy's gait! She can range from very fast (18mph) or slower gaits (5-10 MPH). It is not known if she will carry another foal for us. We believe in this horse so much that we believe in spending these values to potential breeders-- if you wanted to add this supreme, rare gem of a horse to your breeding program or a great riding gelding with a soft feel- $20K (his training/ gelding etc). He is ONE OF A KIND! For those looking for a STAND OUT male riding prospect or future breeding stallion, he has EVERYTHING.

Proudly Wisconsin born and bred!
We are excited to announce a classic silver champagne stud colt to our farm. Stay tuned for updates on his formative years. (Started under saddle 2019)
"Nero" as we call him is a excellent example of what our breeding goals are. He is almost perfectly balanced with a intuitive gait. His personality is calm, cool and gregarious. The special icing on the cake is that his color is very rare.
