SFF's The Dude is one wowzer of a colt!! Born on the 4th of July, 2011, this guy is sure to light up the sky like a show stopping fireworks display! Black with 3 low white socks, a crooked lightening star, and a snip, The Dude is an amazing blend of the best of the best of his Priesian Georgian Grande Dam and his Hackney Horse Sire.
This colt has presence galore- it's almost impossible to take a bad photograph of him- movement that will give you goosebumps, and a quick to learn mind. We liked him so much we left him intact last year and are offering him for a short time as a Stallion Prospect. If you are looking to start or improve your Sport Horse breeding program, The Dude is worth a hard look. He epitomizes what we seek to produce in an athletic, sound, sane, trainable partner suitable for a variety of disciplines.
Although this guy was almost born to wear harness and could most definitely be an upper level CDE prospect, he has also shown an amazing propensity to J-U-M-P. He has free jumped up tp 4' with ease and would have easily gone higher but we don't ask our yougsters to do much of this and never push them.
The Dude's movement speaks for itself!?! :-)
As with all our horses, Dude, has received extensive groundwork and has excellent manners. He leads, loads, stands tied, bathes, and is good for the farrier and vet. He has also been desensitized to a wide variety of things, including: dogs, goats, chickens, assorted other farm animals, traffic, heavy equipment, tarps, flags, and children, to name a few.
His training will continue in a manner respectful of his age and late blooming genetics. The Dude has been crawled all over and is comfortably carrying a saddle but that will be the extent of that for awhile. He has been ponied down the road and we will begin ground driving him around the property in the next week or so. We do our best to ready our youngsters for their new lives and strive to make each transition from newbie to partner as easy as possible- for all involved.
"G" day on the farm is scheduled for the end of September so if you would prefer an awesome gelding versus a stellar stallion, we are happy to oblige as he will be gelded this year if he has not been sold.
