MARES AND FILLIES OF HIDDEN SPRINGS ROCKIES


We believe in riding our mares on the trails also when not in foal or in the early stages of their pregnancies. This really makes for a well rounded mare that passes on her great attitude to her foals.



Rhapsody In Blue


(Harmony)


Blue Roan

We added this girl to our herd in February 2017.  She foaled 3-23-2010 and is a half sister to our filly Diva, both of them are sired by Remington East.  She has great lineage with Choco Lot and Johnson's Toby in her lineage.


She will be ridden on the trails this year and is currently visiting Alliance's Gone N Dun It, a Silver Smoky Grullo Stallion, for a 2018 foal.  The colors for this pairing are something else.  Keep a check for more news on this.  He has 4 sons of Tobe in his lineage so that is a great pairing!


UPDATE:  She has been confirmed in foal to Alliances Gone N Dun it for a June 2018 foal. First two pictures below of the stallion.


Let us know if you might be interested in her foal-it will definitely be something else.


 



MF GAIL'S JOYA de TEJAS (Tia)

This girl is a wonderful addition to our herd.  She is a silver grulla roan and  foaled in April 2013.  She has one copy of silver, one copy of roan, and one copy of dun. She has become an excellent trail horse and doesn't even act like a young horse.  She has an excellent gait and has a calm nature to her. There are less than 10 horses of this color in the association. 


She has been confirmed in foal to Remington East, the blue roan pictured below.  This will be a wonderful matchup!  First pic below is the stallion. There is a chance foal could be homozygous for roan-we shall see.  Mother nature loves to keep us in suspense!





HSR DRIVING MS. DIVA (Diva)

This beautiful filly is a wonderful and beautiful addition to HSR. She is a rare Chocolate Roan or Silver Black roan (one copy silver and one copy roan)  and she foaled May 3, 2014 here at HSR. At first we thought she was a chocolate filly as we could not see any white hairs anywhere on her coat.  However, at her first foal shed around 4 months of age, to our surprise a lot of white was showing up on her body.


She is a dark chocolate color in the winter with a little roaning showing through here and there and her summer coat is a bluish/gray color with chocolate legs and face and a flaxen mane/tail. Very Striking!!  She is sired by Remington's East, a blue roan stallion, and her dam Mountain Gait Peppermint Pattie.  This girl is beautiful and friendly and gaits everywhere she goes. 


She has come home from saddle training and went on her first camping trip in June 2017.  She was excellent!! Stood still for mounting and dismounting, no spooks on the trails and went through the creeks like nothing.  Usually I saddle break them and then if the economy warrants it, I breed them for a nice foal. However, I will be keeping this girl to ride in the next few years. 


She has now been on several rides and camping trips and has done excellent. Couldn't ask for a better girl to ride the trails with.  She will only get better and better as she matures.  This girl will be staying at the farm to be my main riding mount in the years ahead!  I don't think I can part with her-she is so easygoing on the trails, not scared of anything, goes right through creeks, across bridges, etc. and does everything you need her to on the trail.  Hard to believe she is only 3 years old. 




SOUTHFORTY SIMPLY PERFECTION (SIERRA)

This girl is a wonderful addition to our farm. She is a rare silver grulla mare that foaled 6-28-2011. She has the WOW of dun factor with her striped legs, cobweb markings on her forehead, shadowing on her shoulders and the dun stripe down her back. She has been saddle trained and certified through both associations and has been remarkable on the trails.  She foaled a beautiful silver grulla roan filly in March 2016 and now resides in Minnesota.


On May 7, 2017, Sierra foaled a beautiful red dun colt.  This boy also has the markings.  He has a very distinct red stripe, stripes on all 4 legs, shadowing on his forehead and shoulders.   See pics on our 2017 foal page.  Very thrilled with this boy.  The sire is our stallion, Blue Knight.  This pairing really turned out a nice colt so we did it again. He now lives in Maryland and is much loved by his new owner.



She has been confirmed in foal to Blue Knight for a June 2018 foal.  Pictures of him on our stallion page.  Contact us if you might be interested in this foal.   Her first foal was a silver grulla roan filly and was absolutely gorgeous!  Her 2017 foal was a red dun colt; he was perfect also. 





LITTLE MISCHEVIOUS BABY

Below is our 14 year old KMSH mare, Baby. She came to us as a yearling and she was ridden a few years and then became a wonderful broodmare for our farm. Her foals are all easy to sell as they are nicely mannered, just the right height and beautiful.  She is a red chocolate (silver bay) and stands 14-1 hands. While smaller but stocky in stature, she is the boss mare of our herd. 


She foaled a beautiful sorrell filly on April 17, 2016.  She is a big, stocky girl with a half moon on her forehead.  She has received the hair gene from the dam and sire and her mane and tail are very thick and wavy.  She is gorgeous.  See our For Sale page for more information.


Baby has been bred to our stallion Blue Knight for a 2018 foal. She has had numerous foals from this pairing and they have all been absolutely wonderful!  Nicely gaited, nice conformation, excellent manners, and beautiful!  Her foals are eligible for KMSH registry due to the fact that she was never registered in the Rocky Association. She has all Rocky/KMSH lineage though, so the foal will be all mountain horse.








MOUNTAIN GAIT PEPPERMINT PATTI -  PRISSY AND HER 2016 FOAL (DeeDee) WERE STRUCK AND KILLED BY LIGHTNING ON FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2016.  IT WAS A TERRIBLE LOSS TO HIDDEN SPRINGS ROCKIES.   WE REALLY MISS HER HERE BUT LOVE HAVING HER LAST FOAL (DIVA) HERE AT HSR WITH US.  SHE HAS BECOME MY RIDING MOUNT FOR THE YEARS AHEAD.
