Penny is 16.2hh and 12 years old. This big stunning rich mahogany bay mule with lovely white stockings is as flashy and beautiful as they come. In the summer she shines like a new penny and she is built like a brick house. She is one the most impressive and stunning animals I have ever worked with. She has gorgeous white stockings, great conformation, and beautiful color. She will make you look nice and small while riding her. This mule makes your butt look small! She has excellent feet and does well barefoot. She has a lovely walk, trot, and lope. I have considered keeping her for my personal mount as she is so nice but I only have one butt and lots of animals to train. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, but she’s a sweetheart as well. She crosses water easily, she is sure footed in the mountains, and she loves attention and praise. She moves beautifully and has a great ground covering walk, smooth jog, a big extended trot, and a nice smooth canter.
Wynonna is a 15.2hh 11 year old gaited palomino molly mule. Wynonna is coming from a friend and fan of the ranch that wanted to see her used and go to a great home. Our friend runs a rescue operation and with 22 animals and Wynonna was not being ridden regularly. Wynonna was the animal they put their less experienced riders on. Gwen says “She is a wonderful girl if not somewhat opinionated at times and will take the occasional grass breaks on the trail from a less experienced rider. Other than that, her personality is a 10!!! Unfortunately we currently have 22 horses at our rescue and Wynonna is very under utilized.” We have taken Wynonna out on several rides already and into the high country and she has been fantastic. She barely needed a tune-up after almost a year off. Nothing bothers this girl and she is an intelligent, sure-footed, and calm mount. She is a smooth ride and his a nice forward moving mule that likes to ride out front but she’s fine in the middle and the back as well. She is not a poke along mule that constantly need prodding but she’ll go whatever pace you ask her to. Her color is awesome and she has little white spots and roaning in her coat when she shed out in the summer and a pretty white star on her forehead. She has great feet and we’ve had no trouble riding her barefoot in the rocky mountains. She is a willing partner, good for the farrier, good with clippers, and easy to catch. She has a sweet, goofy personality and is looking forward to being someone’s baby. We will be even more selective about her home than usual as we promised Gwen this awesome girl would go to a fantastic home. She does great packing but she is not the right fit for a hunter because she does not like to pack dead animals.

Her disposition is lovely and she has been handled daily since birth.

June’s dam Secret Blanca Jewel AKA “Nova” is a sorrel fewspot who is 90% foundation and FPD eligible. The pedigree on Blanca is a strong one, going back to great foundation horses such as Colida, Prince Plaudit and more modern show horse lines such as Dreamfinder, The Secret and Charicature. She is also a very calm mare with a lovely disposition that does not fall into the normal crazy appaloosa stereotypes. She is very easy to handle and loves people which is key in producing a friendly foal.
