Ima Golden Cherokee

SOLD!  Congrats to Shandy in England!

"They are all here safe & sound!!!  I'm delighted with all of them!! Cherokee is much prettier than her pics & is so friendly. They arrived in the dark & had to walk down the lane to their stables & were so sensible. The first thing they all did was eat!!"  ~Shandy

1998 Grullo Mare, 15.2 hh


At her new home in England

Cherokee has a very nice, long shoulder, a deep heartgirth, and a low-set hock.  Her first foal is one we're definitely keeping, and has a dished face, big eyes, and the lightest silver color of any grullo we've seen lately.  And that says a lot, because we have had about 30 grullos!

Cherokee's grandsire, My Skip Vanzi has a Superior in halter, was a top 10 finisher in the AQHA World Show as a 3 year old, and has an ROM in halter.  He was a PHBA World Champion to boot. Click his name in this paragraph to see more info about his winnings and his gets' winnings.  Her sire was a producer of nearly 90% colored horses, and sired Rush To Be King, who sold as a 4-year-old gelding for $17,200 (see above).  He probably sired more horses that sold well, but we haven't researched that yet (too many horses, too little time!).  :-)

The thing I'd change about Cherokee is that she is sore on her front feet.  At times, she's not very gimpy at all, but at times, she is very ouchy.  I have not had her ultrasounded or x-rayed, but would suspect navicular syndrome or thin soles.  I shod her front feet on 12/31/04, and could see definite improvement even as she walked away when I let her go.  She takes much longer strides with her front feet with the shoes on.  I didn't shoe her specially in any way...just normal keg shoes and a normal set.  Not corrective methods at all.  That kind of leads me to believe that she had tender soles or pedal osteitis (which this set of shoes could possibly fix).  If you are willing to keep her front feet shod or at least well trimmed and shaped, I think she will stay serviceably sound for you to breed and raise some foals from.

Cherokee Information
bulletGreen broke, but we are selling her as a broodmare
bulletVery nice, long shoulder
bulletStraight legs (She has some bumps on back pasterns, though)
bulletFairly lame on her front feet periodically.  At times, she's not very gimpy at all, but at times, she is very ouchy.  I have not had her ultrasounded or x-rayed, but would suspect thin soles, navicular syndrome or arthritis.  I shod her front feet on 12/31/04, and could see definite improvement even as she walked away when I let her go.  She takes much longer strides with her front feet with the shoes on, and it has only been 2 days at the time I am writing this.  I didn't shoe her specially in any way...just normal keg shoes and a normal set.  Not corrective methods at all.  That kind of leads me to believe that she had tender soles or pedal osteitis. 
bulletLarge scar on her chest from a fence wound before we bought her.  This wound could be partially why she has become tender on her front feet, though we are not sure.
bulletGreat hoof wall and good shape to her hooves
bulletNo white
bulletShow pedigree top, foundation and speed on bottom
bulletNice short head and super clean and long neck
bulletVery likely that she carries the creme gene, and would therefore produce palominos and buckskins in addition to duns, grullas, and red duns (she has dapples, which are a characteristic of the creme gene)
bulletFirst foal's web page...click here.  Second foal, click here.  BOTH GRULLOS!
bulletShe foaled at 11 months plus 8 days on the calendar with her first foal, and within a couple days of that with her second foal.  Easy to predict, easy to handle, and a great milker.
