Heritage and Versatility! The majority of our foals are born late April through early June and will be weaned late October. They will be offered for sale mostly as yearlings. We occasionally have two year olds for sale. They will all be sired by our herd stallion, DREA Chewelah Celilo. They will be registered with ApHC and eligible for the ApHC FPD (Foundation Pedigree Designation) Program. Our foals are also eligible for Colorado Ranger Horse Association (CRHA) registration. Our sire and all our broodmares have been 5 panel tested negative with Animal Genetics for the following genetic disorders: PSSM1, GBED, HERDA, MH and HYPP. Every foal from our program will be free of these genetic disorders.
Keenan Ranch foals are born and raised in a 180 acre pasture with varied terrain that includes a brushy creek bottom, open fields and hills. They learn to travel the pasture while interacting with other members of the herd. They occasionally share the pasture with cattle. We visit with them frequently and they enjoy getting attention. Whether you are looking for a ranch partner, family horse or competitor, we believe our program gives our foals a great start to go in many directions.
We have 3 fillies and one colt for 2022!
KR Starnight Elsa is our first foal for 2022! She was born April 14 in the midst of a 3 day April Montana blizzard! We called her Elsa after the character in Disney's movie "Frozen" and Starnight after her maternal granddam. Photo at right of Elsa was taken mid September. Very pretty filly! She is sired by DREA Chewelah Celilo and out of Ochoco Midnight Magic. A black based filly, she is either a smoky black(meaning she also carries the cream gene from her sire) or a true black (meaning she did not inherit the cream gene from her sire.) She is 5 panel clear by parentage and also eligible for Colorado Ranger Horse Assoc. She has a lovely spotted blanket and is 100% FPD eligible(Foundation Pedigree Designation) with ApHC!
On May 14th, DREA Tobygirl Ochoco foaled a handsome buckskin leopard colt! He is one week old in the photo at right. His buckskin leopard spots reminds us of gold coins such as a pirate's treasure so we are calling him KR Pirate ofthe Prairie or Pirate as his ranch name. He is sired by DREA Chewelah Celilo and is 5 panel clear by parentage. Pirate is also eligible for Colorado Ranger Horse Assoc. registration as well as 100% FPD(Foundation Pedigree Designation) with ApHC. We are excited to watch this colt mature!
