Sired by DREA Chewelah Celilo and out of BCAP Cheyenne Maki, she is 100% FPD eligible. Addie would make an awesome versatile saddle horse! Gather cattle with her one day, go on a nice trail the next and take her to the horseshow on the weekend. She could have some nice foals of her own too.

We decided to call him Dakota Star in part because of his bright star on his forehead which really stands out against his dark brown coat, but also, because he goes back to Dakota Jim (F4917) 5 generations back on his dam's side. Check out Dakota's pedigree to learn more of his foundation bloodlines! Three months old old in photo above left and 4 months old in photo above right.
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.
Heritage and Versatility! The majority of our foals are born late April through early June and will be weaned late October. They will be offered for sale after they've been weaned and we've had a chance to work with them. 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 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.
