Begley's Candy Girl

Above is Nero's dam. She is well gaited and personable. "Candy" was born and raised at one of the most popular and best known farms in Kentucky.  Her previous offspring are coveted by their owners. Those who we were fortunate to be in contact with love riding their Candy Offspring! Candy is energetic and so fun to ride! I can't think of  a better mare to produce a stud colt for us!

R2 Eureka Eldorado      Aka "Nero"

Someone asked and we delivered with our dream team! NERO, our resident stallion, has been gelded to be used as a mountain horse out West! Don't worry, his breeding opportunities are still intact via FROZEN shipments!

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 just enjoy riding her so much!

Buddy's Mountain Major

Above 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 LATE 20's, he still shows those new to the breed all about the RMHA gait! Just recently he's been retired from breeding at age 30! He still rides daily out on trails with his owner.
