Our colts are imprinted at birth and handled daily making them exceptional animals that are extremely calm and easy to handle from a very young age. We spend more time with our foals than we ever recoup with their sale price but we absolutely love producing and training phenomenal foals. They receive the best possible start and you will never meet friendlier babies with better manners than ours. We believe when we expose them to everything at a young age they become compliant friendly animals that can handle any situation. Furthermore the genetics and breeding of each and every one of our animals is world class. We have three mares currently bred for spring 2018 colts. Please visit our mares page for more information and contact us to reserve a foal.

Lyra’s Golden Comet -SOLD to the Timian family in Minnesota!

Registration pending

Foaled 5/19/2016
This gorgeous Rocky Mountain palomino filly has been imprinted at birth and is being worked with daily!  Her dam is RMP’s Doublelicious AKA Cinder and her sire is Comet’s Total Image AKA Brick.  Lyra has been color tested ee Aa nCr and does not carry the silver gene.
Brick is a gorgeous palomino stud with a very natural gait, amazing disposition, and he passes that onto his foals.  Our filly Freya’s Silver Comet is also out of Brick and she is just incredible. Her breeding is exceptional and includes lots of Tobe, Maple Squirrel, and Buddy Roe just to name a few.  Both her dam and sire are exceptionally level headed and calm as well as drop dead gorgeous with impeccable conformation and great feet.  Lyra is already gaiting and her markings and color are to die for.  She has a beautiful blaze like her sire and a sock on her left rear leg.  She is already a little love muffin and she loves people.  Her sire is 15.2hh and her dam is 15.1hh so we expect her to mature over 15hh.    This filly will be for sale at weaning at which point she will be halter broke, load in a trailer, pick up her feet, will have been ponied, stand tied, will lead well, and almost anything else you ask for that a weanling could be reasonably expected to do.  You can contact us and put a deposit down or pay for her to hold her until weaning.  She will be well socialized, exposed to animals, machinery, people, and lots of stimulus.  She will also be registered with the Rocky Mountain Horse Association and will qualify for multiple additional registries.  We train our babies right off the bat to respond to pressure, tolerate clippers, loud noises, plastic bags, being touched everywhere, and anything and everything that may make them nervous.  This filly is exceptional and will make an amazing riding and/or brood mare.  We are already head over heals for this girl so we will be picky and only sell her to her forever home.

Freya’s Silver Comet – Not for Sale

Freya is the first filly born on the ranch and she is extremely special to us.  She is a Rocky Mountain horse and color tested EeAanZ which makes her a very rare silver buckskin.  She was born 05/09/2015, was imprinted at birth, and has been handled almost daily since.  Her Dam Crimson Skye is a stunning mare and her Sire Comet’s Total Image is a gorgeous palomino stud residing at Hart Mountain Horses where we purchased Skye and Cinder.  Freya is Skye’s first foal and truly the perfect filly.  Her half sister Lyra is currently for sale but Freya is not for sale and will be a part of our breeding program as well as our personal riding stock.  As a yearling she lunges, ponies beautifully, has had kids sitting on her, is fine with saddles, picks all her feet, and she behaves well for the farrier. Freya is tolerant of just about everything from tarps, to spray bottles, clippers, and grooming.  She adores people, she is naturally gaited, and her color and conformation are absolutely to die for.  We expect her to mature over 15hh.  She is a solid filly with great feet, an excellent mind, and the sweetest personality.  She is everything you could want in a young Rocky Mountain filly and more.  We will be breeding her to Judah spring 2018 as a 3 year old and will continue her handling and training until she is ready to ride as a 3-4 year old.  He bloodlines are excellent containing such notable names as Tobe, Sudden Impact, Dock,  and Buddy Roe just to name a few!   Freya is our pride and joy!
