She gave me a lot of wonderful foals over the years. I just lost her a few weeks back. Came home from work and she was down she just dropped in her tracks. Never knew what hit her, vet said most likley a heart attack. She was still warm and her daughter was standing right with her.
She was at least 26 yo. but possibly much older, she was caught on a strip mine,put under saddle and registered with the RMHA back in 1986. So not sure how old she really was. But the association started in 1986 so that was put on her birthdate.
She is also registered with the KMSHA, and Racking Horse Association.
BTW, Rockies come in ALL colors except spotted. And no white above the knees, or spots of white, no bald face. I have Bay(all shades), Black,Blue Roan,Chocolate/Chocolate, and have had Red Chocolate, Red Roan, Chestnut, Palomino,Chocolate/Flax Mane and Tail.
I can post photos of some of the other colors if you like?
