From one of the very best farms of Canada, Bonnie View Farms, this mare is bred well top AND bottom. UNIQUE broodmare potential. Obi carries the champagne, agouti, silver, black and red genes! Jedi (sire) is by the infamous DOCK and a Barlow Chief/Johnson's Toby mare. Her Dam is Deja Vu sporting the well known Toco sam line and a rare "Mike" son of tobe. The champagne gene doesn't have many lines, she has the rarer "Lilac" line.
Obi is registered not yet under saddle and certified. However she gaits at liberty. Obi is super gregarious... thats an understatement. She is tolerant and loving with everything we ask her to do. What we like about her is a very large build, elegant head carriage, flashy movements and bold personality! She has been saddled one time and took it like a champ!
She is 100% healthy. UTD on de-worming (4 times a year) and vaccinations (every year) as well as hoof trimming. She does not have bad habits trimming or standing tied.
She has a great personality to prove herself as an advanced beginner horse, she shows extreme willingness to do what is asked.
Consider this: If purchased, you could easily make your return on this excellent mare and earn PROFIT if you were to sell foals. She is so gentle and kind you can't go wrong with a mount such as Obi... truly a RARE find and you wouldn't easily find foundation lineage in Kentucky on the general market today.
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!
Obi 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. 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. She receives high quality forage and pasture grazing during summer months. Daily she will receive a Pellet/ oat 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 bottom/ middle of the pack. Sometimes the tougher mares will push her around. I have seen her assert herself at feeding only towards the smaller horses, a very typical move! Mostly she is friendly to others AND ignores others. This is unheard of for a mare in other breeds. Welcome this mare to your mixed herd!
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!
