Brodie, or SR Mistaken Identity (AQHA) is a 2001, registered gelding. Big and handsome, Brodie's been a great horse to have. He is currently part-boarded by Karen and they seem to have a great love for each other. Brodie is very much a been there, done that kind of horse and pretty easy going.
Sock's past is also a bit of a mystery as he was also purchased from Grunthal auction spring of 2014. This 12 year old gelding is only 14.1hh, but has tons of stamina and can easily carry a large adult. Though broke to ride he had some major holes in his training. He has been a challenging, but fun horse to work with. Nice slow jog, and super smooth forward lope, Socks always seems to have energy and once you have his respect he will give you 110%. Cheryl showed him this summer (2015) and hauled him out to a trail ride. Socks is a horse that loves to have a job to do, and has been used to herd horses and ponies, fix fence, and really enjoys obstacle courses.
Missy (Smart Lil Maximus) is a 2005 AQHA mare. Cheryl rode and showed this horse when Missy was 2, so when she came up for sale we couldn't resist her. Though Missy has had some trouble, injuries and such she is still a lovely well bred mare. She is in foal to Echos Amos Hollywood for a second baby in 2018 that we are very excited about. Super sweet, Missy loves attention and seems to enjoy kids. Missy has been a great addition to our lesson program.
Dusty (Poco Dusty Ratchett) is a 2010 APHA solid bred mare. Purchased at a fall Grunthal auction in 2014, we saw a lot of potential in this horse. Very good minded and a fast learner we have been pleased to add her to our herd. She has quickly become one of the main lesson horses and is partboarded by Dawn. Cheryl took her to one show this summer (2015) and was very pleased with her performance with minimal training and prep. Dusty is a nice big chunk of a horse, she has to work at it, but can have a lovely jog and lope. Not much fazes this young horse and we have been impressed with her good attitude.
Dollie, (MSR Smart Lil Dollie) 2016 AQHA Filly. First foal born here on the ranch, by Echo Amos Hollywood, and out of Smart Lil Maximus (Missy). Super nice palomino filly with a great mind.
Java, bay gelding. Born approx. in 2002. Very nice arab cross gelding, one of our best lesson horses.
Current Other Animals
Pie is still missed very much here at the ranch. He was a great gelding and a superb herd leader. Gorgeous and extremely well mannered, he was a favorite to many people.
Rosie is a wonderful mare, that is much loved in her new home. We really enjoyed having her here and she was a favorite of Cheryl's to ride.
Allie, APHA mare.
Bailey, Grade mare, sold to the same wonderful home as Rosie.
Drifter's past is a bit of a mystery, we purchased him from Grunthal auction in the spring of 2014. He appears to be about 13, and is a very nice gelding. Though broke and safe to ride from the beginning, he certainly needed a bit of refinement in his riding skills. Super nice horse to ride, he has developed a lovely jog and has a very natural smooth lope. Drifter has been shown and attended a Rother Horsemanship clinic in 2017.
