Meet the Horses

Prairie Rose

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Mare

Age: 15

Appearance: Red Roan

# of Hands: 15

Raised on the prairies of eastern Wyoming and colored like a rose, hence this gentle mare's name. Prairie Rose is strong and stable; nothing bothers her and in the saddle she will go anywhere, anytime. She is very "no nonsense", a real worker, all you have to do is ask her, but she won't volunteer!

Barbwire

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Bay

# of Hands: 14.5

One of the new in 2015 horses, Barbwire will be an outstanding ride; he is well-mannered, quiet, yet has a good feel out on the trail. With a little work on his feet and teeth, we expect him to let us share his life for several years of service.

Blue Moon

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 16

Appearance: Grey

# of Hands: 15

Bobbi selected Blue Moon to be one of her personal saddle horses in 2015, but he quickly went into the guest string! He is very well-bred and is pretty sensitive, is well-trained and just needs a lot of miles. Maybe one of the most "put together" Quarter Horses we have ever had in our cavvy.

Hawkeye

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 13

Appearance: Palomino

# of Hands: 16

What a wonderful horse! Hawkeye is big-boned and rugged, yet has a disposition that anyone would be pleased to have in their herd. Great for novice riders, yet a good challenge at faster gaits for advanced skill levels. He's very responsive, willing, and forgiving.

Romeo

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Palomino

# of Hands: 16

Romeo has found relief here at Blue Sky Sage! His ground manners were a little poor, due to some issues he had with people somewhere in his history, but after some firm re-education, he is now a gentleman, with a beautiful gait and quiet nature on the trail.

Roxanne

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Mare

Age: 6

Appearance: Palomino Paint

# of Hands: 14.3

Sweet, little Roxanne, oh what a treat she is! We do not bring in too many mares, but when Chad showed her to Bobbi, it was all over. She is well-trained, soft and willing, and with the right hands and seat, she is going to become a horse that anyone will be able to ride. And full of "personality"!

Ginger

Breed: Mustang

Gender: Mare

Age: 5

Appearance: Chestnut

# of Hands: 14

We took the plunge and adopted our first BLM mustangs in spring 2015. Bobbi wanted some young horses that already were well-started that she can bring along to become trustworthy, long-term personal saddle horses. Ginger came out of the Wyoming Honor Farm/BLM training and adoption program, and has been started right. She yields to all pressure, willingly picks up all her feet, moves out and can cover a lot of country in a hurry. She'll just get better from here on out, and she is FUN!

Belle Star

Breed: Mustang/Quarter Horse/Belgian Cross

Gender: Mare

Age: 14

Appearance: Bay

# of Hands: 15.3

Mike selected Belle Star for one of his personal saddle horses in 2016, and she is such a great fit for him that we kept her over for the fall and winter. She has the innate attentiveness of the wild horses, the rolling gait of a draft breed, and the athleticism of a good Quarter Horse, so she is a complete package. She can cover the country pretty quickly!

Brutus

Breed: Quarter Horse / Saddlebred? Cross

Gender: Gelding

Age: 12

Appearance: Black & White Paint

# of Hands: 14.2

Brutus was Bobbi's project horse in 2016, and all the time she spent with him really paid off, as he was moved into the guest string for the last two rides of the season. This horse can cover the country, with a smooth, rolling gait and action. He has a quirky disposition, a real character, and is just a pleasure to be around. And of course, we were saying "Et tu, Brute" all summer long . . .

Caboose

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 15

Appearance: Sorrel

# of Hands: 15

You never know Caboose is even around until you get ready to saddle up and ride him, then he is up to the task! A gentle, kind, and low-key fella, he has filled a niche for both novice and intermediate skill level riders.

Jedi

Breed: Percheron/Shetland Crossbred

Gender: Gelding

Age: 8

Appearance: Black

# of Hands: 13

Yes, that really is his breeding! This little pistol was a show horse for his former owner, however he is learning how to be a working saddle horse on the open range. Jedi has the gentle nature and quiet manners of his Percheron lineage, with the on-the-trail action of the Shetland pony. He was a little bit naughty during his first season, so he will start the 2017 season in Bobbi's string until he learns the rest of his manners - he is a fun challenge!

Vaquero

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Grey

# of Hands: 14.3

Vaquero is built to travel, wiry and slim, with an attitude that is business-like. He's been well-trained, a horse that is challenging, and a great teacher. For advanced riders who can step up their game.

Jacknife

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 12

Appearance: Red & White Paint

# of Hands: 14.3

This little horse has a big heart of gold. Sweet disposition, smooth gait, and as willing a horse as you will find. He is getting softer and more responsive every ride, a great teacher for novice and intermediate riders, yet a fun horse for advanced riders.

Suitcase

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Dun

# of Hands: 15

Suitcase has a survival story, and because he has such a big heart, he is a regular in the herd. This horse is energetic, yet responsive for more experienced riders and has a unique way about him. His name has a story too, so you can hear all about him around the campfire!

Roulette

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 15

Appearance: Dun

# of Hands: 15

What a ham! Roulette is a solid citizen, with a disposition that is a little quirky, in a good way. He's friendly, yet all business when on the job. He travels out well, is soft and responsive, for intermediate to advanced riders.

Painted Valley

Breed: Draft/Quarter Cross

Gender: Gelding

Age: 8

Appearance: Black & White Paint

# of Hands: 16.2

This horse is absolutely wonderful! Has that quiet, calm draft disposition, with some Quarter Horse attributes that make him so much fun to ride. He goes to Arizona in the winter, so he's a year 'round saddle horse. Our small women riders love him!

Rivet

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 8

Appearance: Black & White Paint

# of Hands: 15.3

This nice horse is a real treat to ride. He's got a wonderful gait and has become a "go to" horse for novices and advanced riders both. Rivet has grown up with Blue Sky Sage; he is well-mannered and friendly, and we hope will be with us for many years.

Alex

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 15

Appearance: Brown

# of Hands: 15.1

Alex is a keen Quarter Horse that has a quick step and a little action. He's pretty handy and ready to go, yet he's friendly and always looking for some attention. Alex has become one of our "go to" fellows for almost any rider skill level.

Rebel

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Black & White Paint

# of Hands: 16

Rebel is a big, charismatic Paint gelding, a "solid" black & white paint, no spots or mottling, white blaze on his face. He is a very nice, gentle and responsive horse that just about anyone will get along with. Has a long stride and quiet manner, yet he's alert. Another of the "go to" guys.

Hidalgo

Breed: Quarter Horse

Gender: Gelding

Age: 13

Appearance: Red & White Paint

# of Hands: 15.1

Colorful and handsome, Hidalgo looks like a classic western horse! He is a "go to" fellow also, gentle and easy for novice riders, yet challenging for advanced riders. He has a big stride and likes to go!

Flash

Breed: Quarter Horse cross

Gender: Gelding

Age: 13

Appearance: Sorrel w/flaxen mane & tail

# of Hands: 13 1/2

Flash has been in the cavvy for several years. Yes, he is a "pretty boy" with a lot of energy in a small package, and needs a experienced rider to handle his energy and enthusiasm, but his looks belie the fact that this horse is a solid citizen who will challenge riders fair and square. A favorite of the ladies . . .

Gold Rush

Breed: Draft/Quarter Cross

Gender: Gelding

Age: 14

Appearance: Palomino

# of Hands: 16.1

While the ladies love Gold Rush, he gives the air of being a man's kinda horse, big and strong, with a deliberate stride. He's a blue-collar worker, no nonsense, yet all you have to do is ask and he will respond willingly.
