Only the best from R2, this mare is bred well top AND bottom. LIMITLESS broodmare potential. Owen's Chactaw is her sire, his get are saught after (You just cannot find his offspring up north!). Venture's black fury (a rare find by Chocolate Venture) on bottom makes her an excellent find (or an IMPOSSIBLE one!). This mare will pass on the best genes and color, as she will cross well to any stallion. Genetics: EE (won't make a sorrel) Aa (can make Bay) nZ single silver (no ASD/ MCOA!).
Chance is well started and on her way to finishing. She has a nice low flat kneed movement, easy on the rider out on trails. So far on the ground she shows me a slow gait on the lunge line. Its very pretty!! We just sent in her certification paperwork for the RMHA and breeding purposes. Has never refused a lesson so far, WOW I am impressed with this mare!
She is 100% healthy. UTD on de-worming (4 times a year rotational program) and vaccinations (every year) as well as hoof trimming. Speaking of feet, her feet are very hard and tough. She goes barefoot and we start them that way. Shoes are not needed, her feet have perfect confirmation! She does not have bad habits standing tied or for trimming. She receives vaccinations and dewormer very well. No known health issues or previous founder.
I would recommend this mare for a knowledgeable Horse person, since rather green, but also suited for families as she stands so quietly. She has a great personality to prove herself as an advanced beginner horse or even beginner horse when finished. She is the friendliest horse on the farm!
About my training:
I utilize many training techniques to create a well-rounded horse. Whether you follow Pat Parelli, Ray Hunt, Nuno Oliveira, Clinton Anderson or other top trainers, we optimize the abilities of each horse to create a willing and dependable partner under saddle and a far more dependable horse on the trail!
Chance will ride out alone around the farm. She is working towards her first hauling trips. She has never offered to kick or bite a human. She is so so inquisitive. She is not spooky of objects like the tarp. She is surprisingly trusting and easy to train. This mare is very easy to saddle and bridle, no wiggles here. She picks up her feet with ease.
Chance is a super easy keeper. She is pasture managed (rotational grazing). I believe in a strong quality forage feeding program where most nutrients are provided through hay. I feed a slight alfalfa mix with a mix of prairie grasses (not much alfalfa for this girl unless its -20 during the winter!). As a quality supplement to fill in the gaps, different trace and white mineral blocks are provided free choice. When under extensive training, all horses are fed PREMIUM Purina products to ensure a shiny coat and adequate flesh as well as a good energy level. I will also utilize quality natural forages such as whole oats and beet pulp depending on the individual. Chance receives high quality forage and pasture grazing during summer months. Daily she will receive a (SMALL AMOUNT) grain mix with her herd mates.
She gets along with all kinds. We have a mix of mares, geldings, pony, babies, yearlings, pregnant mares. As far as status she is more or less at the TOP of the pack. Sometimes she acts tough and will push others around, but that doesn't last. Mostly she is friendly to others AND ignores them. After the initial status is determined with the new horses she calms down and acts fairly. This is unheard of for a mare in other breeds. Welcome this mare to your mixed herd!
This mare is the complete opposite of anything you would describe mareish! I barely notice.... after a few days of lifting her tail she resumes regular activity in the paddock... when I take her out during her cycle she acts as she normally would if she wasn't in a heavy estrus. Folks familiar with other breeds may think they want to avoid mares altogether. That is not the case with Rockies! So many people tell me they never would have thought the relationship with their mare would be as rewarding as it is. They are smart, willing, friendly and above all, loyal. Mares may have their opinions but as long as you are fair to them, they give you their ALL!
Chance as she works in the field. She has a super head on her shoulders.
Just a sneak peak of Chance as she is working toward ride 5-10, the mud typically makes it difficult for gaited horses, but Chance prevails!
