They are gorgeous! Mr. Miguez, a trail buddy, has one - Dan. Generally, their 13 year old granddaughter is riding Dan barebacked no less! He is gaited and a silver dilute. Easy going fellow and gorgeous. We all want to own Dan!! Sometimes Mrs. M rides him and has to rein him in a bit after the granddaughter has rode him at a faster gait then she wants to go but other than that, the horse is a darling.

If I ever have to get another horse - I would love to own a Rocky!!!

They are indeed wonderful horses! Mine is a buckskin with one green/golden amber eye and one blue/dark amber eye.
His face is very similar to the back horse patriot posted.

Lol, they do tend to have an over-abundance of mane, mine is a constant fight to keep dreadlocks away!

One of mine (darker one in the photos) has got a very long mane, forelock, and tail, much longer winter coat also, the other ones hair is completely different. I just noticed the tail length of the dark one in the photo I posted on pg 1, it's about a foot longer now. He can step on it now, several times over the past couple of months I had to pull it out from under his rear hoof when I was brushing his tail.

Curious about the winter coat on others Rocky's, is it long or short?

I've worked with quite a few, though some more so than others they all tend to have a very wooly winter coat. It's one of the positives of the breed, they easily handle cold weather.
