TRAINING & BREEDING QUALITY ROCKY MOUNTAIN HORSES
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!

Adding MUSCLE, BALANCE, SUBSTANCE & GENTLENESS to any breeding program!
"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.
Here are a few videos to show you Nero's demeanor and the demeanor of a colt out of him we raised in his first ever round pen lesson!

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!
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.
McCoy is owned by a BLUE MOON FARM and will be kept intact SEE R2 The Real McCoy !
Always a sturdy foal with tons of personality!
