Keenan Ranch foals are born and raised in a 180 acre pasture with varied terrain that includes a brushy creek bottom, open fields and hills. They learn to travel the pasture while interacting with other members of the herd. They occasionally share the pasture with cattle. We visit with them frequently and they enjoy getting attention. Whether you are looking for a ranch partner, family horse or competitor, we believe our program gives our foals a great start to go in many directions. ~We consider offers.~
Heritage and Versatility! The majority of our foals are born late April through early June and will be weaned late October. They will be ready to travel to new homes after we've had a chance to work with them as weanlings and roads are safe for travel. We offer to winter them at no charge until April 1st. We do require a deposit and a signed purchase agreement to consider our foals spoken for. They will all be sired by our herd stallion, DREA Chewelah Celilo. They will be registered with ApHC and eligible for the ApHC FPD (Foundation Pedigree Designation) Program. Our foals are also eligible for Sundance "500" certification and Colorado Ranger Horse Association (CRHA) registration. Our sire and all our broodmares have been 5 panel tested negative with Animal Genetics for the following genetic disorders: PSSM1, GBED, HERDA, MH and HYPP. Every foal from our program will be free of these genetic disorders.
June 16 brought us our last foal for 2019. BCAP Cheyenne Maki gave birth to a cute bay snowcap colt! 100% FPD eligible with ApHC. He has a full sibling used for calving season on a working cattle ranch this past winter and is doing really well. We anticipate Jax to mature into a very nice versatile horse. He is for sale. Asking $2500.00
KR Hawk Misty Morn's filly was born on May 19, 2019. Sired by DREA Chewelah Celilo. To represent both the dam and sire in her name, we are calling her KR Celilo inthe Mist. Missy is a beautiful black based filly with a classic appaloosa pattern, a spotted blanket on a very nice hip. She is 5 months old in the photos. Missy is 97% FPD eligible with ApHC. This cross tends to produce foals that mature with more height than either the dam or sire so we would anticipate this filly to mature at 15.1h or taller. She has the potential to be a wonderful versatile filly, trail, family, ranch, work, play or show. She has a very nice build and a sweet personality! She is for sale. Asking $2,500.00.

We anticipate Miles to have nice height to him like his dam, possibly 16H and be a nice dressage prospect but versatile for English or Western.
