Keenan Ranch foals are born and raised in a 180 acre pasture with versatile 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.
