Rocky Mountain/Kentucky Mountain
 
I have scanned many threads and have yet to find one dedicated to photos of just this breed. They are pretty rare here in the north yet seem to be picking up. I have a friend who got me into them and they have turned into Jays Potato Chips for me ~ you can't have just one. Here are the pics of my kids, all of them Rockies, soon to be registered under the Kentucky Mountain registry since both are pretty much the same and I am too cheap to be a member of both :D

All colors all sizes are welcome ~ I just love some of the beautiful shades these guys produce ~ also if you have gaiting videos would love to see them, just amazes me how these horses move along with their intelligence and love of humans. Yes I know there are a few exceptions, but isn't that true with every breed.

Also do you do any showing with them?? Sire/dam would be interesting too, but grades are welcome too. I mean they all pretty much came from Tobe didn't they?

Well here are my pics such as they are:

Ima Dollfie Doll (aka Dolly) 20 year old - Black - RMH/KMHA reg. grade mare. She has some beautiful babies on the ground from her previous owner, now she's my Been There Done That trainer for the new kids.

(Sire: Ventures Black Fury Dam: Brandys Miss Priss)

My girls are all Rocky/KY horses. I love them crazy :D
First is Saro, she is 3yo and daughter of Vida. She has been started under saddle. She just had a bath in that pic so she is spotty, plus she is faded from the summer sun.
Next is Shiloh at 3 yo she is also started under saddle. Shes a big girl at 16h. and the daughter of Sassafras
Vida and Sassafras (fras) are our regular riding mares. Vida is the black in my avitar and Fras is the sorrel pictured

oh yea blood lines:

Charmins White Cloud- Amigo's Blue x Millers Rockie (owned by old man Sewells so Im told)

Bo- Blue Smokin' Sambo x Grade Mare

Roxie- Nick Mare (dam to Rockin Rolla)

Rocky (Rockin-Rolla)- The Right Stuff x Roxie

MT Fire Walker- Nuncio x Velvet C. (Sewells Sam Mare) 55% Tobe (HARD TO FIND!!)

Our other stud (pic was way to big to post) is out of French's Stormy (sire to Storm Warning) and he's a full brother to PTs Stone Cold....

and about 10 others LOL

I like to stick with the older bloodlines, but in todays age of Rocky Mountain Horses its not getting you very far...You have to breed to stepping horses that show good...Trail Horses arnt selling, and people that buy trail horses usually dont care about lines...

We show as often as we can, since getting out of school i found i have a lot more time for it....Last year we got on a tack store sponsered show and my Classic Gelding and I took 4/5 firsts and 1 2nd...next year with time off built up at work I will be showing in the RMHA Kentucky Shows and a majority of the KMSHA shows...

this might be my last long post on here lolol

Just gorgeous! Yes Sunny06, they come in all colors. We have a friend who has a champagne mare and baby. She has the most beautiful greenish golden eyes, I forget what color they are called. Other people we know have a cremello stud who throws big beautiful babies in many different colors just as all other breeds do.
I know a farm that has a beautiful roany color mare that carries the silver gene. She is a showstopper and so is her price. :lol:

hccumminssmoke, I love Cloud, he has breathtaking color in this picture! and RockinRolla is a beauty in the making. VERY pretty face on that boy.

And Vidaloco ~ Lovely family. I am hoping my boy grows to Saro's color, that dapple coloring is wonderful.

Yes, I know about the trail riders not caring, but they should. When a horse shows well in confirmation, pleasure and/or competitive trail you know what type of horse you're getting. That is why I snapped up our chocolate colt, he has several old bloodlines in him and his dam carries some too. It was well worth it as this boy is gaiting in the pasture at 6 months old. Goes straight from walk to gait to canter. Much easier to have a baby that already knows what gait is then trying to train it into them as I know some have had to do with some of the newer bloodlines.

Vidaloco 11-25-2009 03:41 PM

Macslady, I think your Smokey will look just like Saro when he is all grown up. She changed colors several times in her first 2 years so wasn't sure what she was going to finish as.

I need to update Shiloh and Fras's one of these days. They are my husbands so I get slack with them, I know thats awful :lol:
