UPDATE: We were contacted by the family that these two mares were sent to a retirement facility and will be cared for. Thank you to everyone who shared these two!
We were contacted by Rusty Richards, a well-known cowboy, horse trainer, and part of the musical group Sons of the Pioneers about rehoming his two Quarter horse mares. He wants to make sure that they go to a good home, which is why he reached out to us instead of selling them.
Both mares are sound and rideable. They have been ridden as trail horses all over the canyon, and were trained by Rusty. In order to ensure that the mares are not “flipped” to another owner, the new owner will need to sign a contract with Hanaeleh which includes a first right-of-refusal. They do not have to go together, but preference will go to anyone who will take both mares.
Colonel Feather is a chestnut Quarter horse mare. She is registered (out of Colonel Freckles and a Doc Bar mare) and is very well-bred and is sound. She is barefoot, up-to-date on all of her vaccinations and dental care. She needs a high intermediate or experienced rider. She is good on the ground- the only issue she has is that she will sometimes get excited when being turned out and will try to run away as the halter is being taken off. She is food aggressive. Rusty needs to confirm with the papers, but he says she about 18 years old.
Katie’s Bar Code
Katie’s Bar Code is a bay Quarter horse mare. She is registered and also very well-bred and is sound. She is barefoot, up-to-date on all of her vaccinations and dental care. She would do best with a high beginner or intermediate rider. She is very sweet and good on the ground. She is in her early 20s, so she has a little arthritis, which is understandable due to her age.
