"Dunny" 2011 AQHA Red Dun Mare 14.3hh
(Little Cat Olena X JCM Shining Belle)
This is one spectacular little mare and the possibilities are wide open! "Dunny" is my personal horse and parting with her was not in my long-term plan; however, our new farm has us busier than we ever imagined and this mare is far too talented to hang around in the pasture waiting for me to have the time to take her out.... (read more) My loss is your gain! This is a sensible young mare that rides wise beyond her years.
Dunny has not been pushed and is ready to get serious with her next owner. She has an excellent foundation in reining, has been started on cattle, and has hacked out on the trails for good measure. This is an easy and uncomplicated mare to get along with and ride (and quiet enough that we let our 5yr old grandson ride her!) If you are looking for a well-bred, pretty, and talented mare, here she is!
Dunny's sire is a son of High Brow Cat (who needs no introduction) and Bonnie Tari, an NCHA 3yo Open Futurity Finalist and the dam of earners totaling over $136,000. Little Cat Olena has NCHA earnings totaling $55,300 and an impressive resume that can be seen here: http://www.santarosaequines.com/littlecatolena.htm Dunny's dam is a daughter of Moorehouse Ranch's Seven S Shining Gold who is sired by none other than the great Shining Spark!
Under saddle, this mare is as honest as they come. She has a soft easy lope and speed when you ask for it. Her spins are coming along well as are her rollbacks. She has a great stop, a good mouth, and is SMART! Started on changes. On cattle, Dunny is sensible and quiet in the herd. She has been worked on them slowly and has never been pushed. This mare enjoys cow work. We will try to get a video of her on cattle soon (we do not have our own cattle so must haul out to practice). Dunny's under saddle career has included a fair bit of trail riding to keep her fresh and she enjoys nothing more than riding out into water!
This mare is sound and sane with no vices of any kind. Vet checks are welcome. Dunny is currently in work and will remain there until sold.
