Reg # 9641530 Ramona Jo was previously used as a trail horse who also did cutting and barrels. This mare is 15.1 hands and 17 years old. She is registered with the Jokey Club and we are getting her papers soon. She was saved off the Sunnyside feed lot and now looking for her forever home.
She was Washington bred, born May 29, 1996. Stakes placed. No firsts, 1 second, 3 thirds. Won $12,490. Raced at Emerald Downs in 1998, then finished her career at Golden Gate the same year. Granddaddy on her sires side is Seattle Slew. You can see her pedigree at http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/ramona+jo .
Ramona Jo is sounds with clean legs and good hooves. She ties, loads, hauls, likes to be brushed, and is good for the farrier. We have not ridden her so we do not know how broke she is but we would not recommend her for beginners because of her slight attitude. This seems to be her only vice, she tries to test you and see what she can get away with and when we put a blanket on her she had a lot of anxiety and bit the post in front of her. She also acted like she was going to bite when we haltered her up but didn't and with correction she stopped.
When we were brushing her and taking pictures of her she was a sweet as can be. She wanted to snuggle and had kindness in her eye. With someone who has a little experience with naughty horses we do not think her habits will be hard to fix at all. She needs one on one time and a forever home. She has a lot potential and I am sure her problems are stemmed from not so good people and always getting away with it.
Ramonas adoption fee is $450.00 OR BEST OFFER, GOOD HOMES ARE A PRIORITY.
