He's a 2009 Appaloosa stud colt at the farm where I've been boarding Cinder since May, had Eve there for a bit last spring as well. I've had my eye on him since he was a weanling but fell in love last week - the woman that owned him couldn't catch him and she asked me to "just get a halter on him!" 2 hours later, after learning to use a lariat, 2 bruises on my left hip and a boot full of mud, Cherokee had a halter on and a place in my heart. He was TERRIFIED at first but learned fast that if he stopped bolting and dragging me, the pressure was gone. Anyway, by the end of those 2 hours, I'd caught and haltered him, and run my hands all over him. Came back after 10 minutes and bug wiped him everywhere - he's scared, but willing to learn and wanting the attention!
Sorry for the ramble, just excited! I don't have his breeding papers right in front of me, but it's my understanding he's of good bloodlines - going to do my research over the summer and find out if it's worth keeping him a stallion. I've only ever owned one other stallion, a black Welsh Pony - he was great, but I want to know my stallion is adding good things to the gene pool! If anyone on here is educated in Appy bloodlines, I'd love for you to IM me so I can run some names past you! Cherokee is my first registered horse and I want to learn a bit more about it!
His feet are my #1 priority...
Handsome boy <3
Such a beautiful, alert expression!
I'll be sure to post more pictures as we get through some of our training! Only worked with him twice so far, just bought him yesterday! Going out in the morning though so wish me luck!
