Sundance is a two year old
chocolate flaxen Rocky Mountain colt that at this time is 13 hands
tall. One hand is 4" . My wife and I went to look at
some goats that a woman had for sale because she lost her pasture.
When we got there standing in the yard was this
horse. We looked at him and we both fell for him right away. We
asked " Is that a Rocky Mountain?" "She said
yep and he is for sale. I can not keep him because I lost my
pasture." We asked " how much" We knew a Registered
colt gelding was going for $2000.00 - $4000.00. She
told us he was going for $500.00. Why so cheep, well he is not registered.
From what I have learned, because he has white above the hock and
that is not allowed on a registered horse. Also we learned that Kentucky was short on
hay big time and lots of breeders had problems feeding their horses.
So they were selling horses like Sundance cheep just cut down their herds.
