RR Marks Hennessey “Athena”

Bay Clydesdale Mare

Registration # F26038

Sire: Bear River Mark

Dam: Muirs Belleville Betty Jean

This gorgeous registered bay Clydesdale mare has a puppy dog personality and the kindest eyes we’ve ever seen.  She is a classic bay Clydesdale with all the preferred markings, four white socks to the knees and hocks, and a well-defined blaze.  She also has unique black running through her front right sock.   When we purchased her she was thin, covered in burrs, and had been out in a field underutilized.  We spend hours brushing the burrs and dreadlocks out of her mane, tail, and feathers and she has already gained a lot of weight.   She is very green having only been ridden a couple of times prior to us getting her but she is very intelligent, eager to please, and gentle.  Anytime we are out in the pasture she follows us around looking for attention.  She is truly a people horse and incredibly lovely.  She is very athletic, she has a ton of action, and a huge stride.  Standing at 17.2hh this mare is very impressive.  We bred Athena to Judah and she is confirmed in foal for a spring 2020 draft mule foal.   We expect a beautiful foal and look forward to continuing her training and teaching her to drive.

Amadeys Sukia  “Silver”

Silver is a beautiful ‘06 foundation bred AQHA mare who is silver grulla! Heavy Poco Bueno breeding and homozygous dun! This mare is a proven producer and 5 panel n/n.  Silver not only comes by a great pedigree, but she is a big mare with great confirmation, nice bone and feet. This gal has a great disposition she passes on to all her foals as well. She is an easy keeper, an easy breeder and gets along well with everyone in her pasture.  Standing 15 hands. She had a lovely grulla appaloosa filly in 2017 by the Appaloosa stallion Maumin Boss Hoss. We started her under saddle and she has been one of the easiest horses to start we have ever trained.  She is so calm and easy going and she passes her disposition onto her babies.  She has produced two exceptional dun mule colts, Wyatt and Doc.  Silver is confirmed back in foal to Judah for a spring 2021 mule foal.

Secret Blanca Jewel

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. This gal is going to mature into one big, impressive mare who will have some great bone and feet. She has a wonderful disposition and will be ready to join the broodmare band in the spring. Blanca is homozygous LP with one copy of PATN1 so we expect loud appaloosa mules from this beautiful girl.  Nova has produced two gorgeous appaloosa mules for us, June and Maverick.  She is confirmed in foal to Judah for a 2021 mule foal.

Snowkist Cloud “Luna”

You’d never know that under two copies of LP, this filly is a grulla leopard! This filly has been genetically tested (Ee aa LPLP PATN1/n Dd). What an outstanding, unique individual, not to mention a phenomenal color producer! Snowkist Cloud AKA: “Luna” has matured into a big, big quality mare. At 97% foundation, this filly goes back to a ton of wonderful, old breeding such as Prince Plaudit, Mighty Bright, Deacons Bonanaza, Might Peavy and Mighty Rustler. Just like her dam, Luna will be a powerhouse producer and we expect beautiful appaloosa mules from this beautiful girl.  Luna has produced two exceptional appaloosa mule foals for us, Betty and Archer.  She is back in foal to Judah for a 2021 mule foal.


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. We have started training her under saddle and found her to be very calm and willing.  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. She is already 15hh and will likely grow more. 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.  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! She has produced two beautiful bay mule colts for us, Theodore and Sonny.  We gave her the year off and will be breeding her back to Judah for a 2022 mule foal.
