Rainbow Trout Ranch guests Mike and Helen Goff watched Prima in a halter clinic at the ranch and they loved her diva personality and promptly bought her, even though they live in England and aren't able to see her that often. She is an eye catcher at the barn, and one of Mary-Anne's favorites to ride. We are excited to see her venture into Rafter 54 Performance Horses.
Even though I am not in the market, I check in now and then just to see the latest. You have a great page! Hope all is going well.

Meet Cutie Pie, an AQHA filly out of Bartendin Cherrybuck sired by JCM Paddys Docline (an own son of Paddy’s Irish Whiskey). This little filly has a very sweet personality and potential to be an amazing performance horse.

Rafter 54 Performance Horses is on the home stretch of foaling season. With only two more mares to foal, we are excited to meet all these little ones. Each one has a very different personality.
This upcoming year most of our mares will be bred to Its Tuff To Be Smart, an own son of Woody Be Tuff. The mares not bred to Its Tuff To Be Smart will be bred to JCM Paddys Docline, an own son of Paddys Irish Whiskey. These foals will be athletes for sure!

Introducing two more foals! We had a busy week last week as Rainbow Trout Ranch raised mare Prima had a pale palomino c**t, named Platoro, by Shiners Zan Parr (RTR stallion Silver.) He is a big, friendly c**t and very shapey.
Hibiscus had a pretty sorrel filly that we name Azalea. She is well built with stockings and a wide blaze. She is a granddaughter to the legendary Shining Spark.

Roosters SugarNSpice x Lottashineycash produced a very pretty sorrel filly with chrome in the early hours. It was a very windy night and when we brought her inside she was full of energy - hence her barn name Zazu, which means “to move, movement” in Swahili. She’s a pretty girl and we are excited to have her!

Rafter 54 has added an own son of Woody Be Tuff to its program! Meet Its Tuff To Be Smart (aka “Ni**od”). His barn name not only plays off his papered name, but is also a tribute to Mary-Anne’s late grandfather, Don, who was an international polo player and his favorite polo horse was named Ni**od. Our big flashy bay stud is not only a son of Woody Be Tuff, but also a grandson to High Brow Cat. He’s broke to ride, and we’re excited to start his roping and futurity career this spring. Ni**od has has a very sweet demeanor, and is also very cowy and athletic. This stallion has a bright future at Rafter 54!

This morning at 8am Miss Pauline x Lottashineycash had a sorrel c**t, Mac. He spent the day getting strong and exploring the new world.
Julieta, 3 1/2 days old, is an independent little soul and very adventurous. Meanwhile, 3-day old Mojito is a little firecracker and is constantly prancing around. The mares and foals are doing very well, and we have five more to go.

Foaling season has sprung upon Rafter 54. We have had two foals in the last 24 hrs. A little bay filly (Juileta) Red Joe Missy x Lottashineycash. She was born at about midnight last night. The second one is a little sorrel c**t Mojito, was born this morning around 10 AM. He is out of Teggy Gallo x Lottashineycash. Both mothers and babies are doing well. What a wonderful way to start off our foaling season!

Driften Arikara aka “Prima” has bloodlines including Pat Cowan, Sun Frost , and Driftwood. Her name is because she is truly a Prima Donna. Rainbow Trout Ranch guests Mike and Helen Goff watched her in a halter clinic at the ranch and they loved her diva personality and promptly bought her, even though they live in England and aren't able to see her that often! She is a beautiful red roan mare, and I have had the pleasure of riding her the last three years. Her quick reflexes, true athleticism and surefootedness are perfect for the southern Colorado Rockies where we ride -- she is just pure fun! Owners Mike and Helen have graciously agreed to let Prima become a part of Rafter 54, and she is currently bred to David and Jane Van Berkum’s proven stallion Shiners Zan Parr, a cremello who carries the agouti gene, and who also has his ROM. The cross should be colorful and cowy, and have a great disposition. We are so excited!

Shining some light on Shines Angel Fire today. We call her “Angel Fire" and she is a nice mare with a super sweet attitude. We like her name too because we aren't that far from Angel Fire, NM. In days gone by, the Ute Tribe lived close to Angel Fire, but summered in the Conejos Canyon which is where we are, to escape the heat. It is now a quaint little ski town with stunning views. Aside from her fun name, this mare has great papers and will have amazing foals. She is a granddaughter to Shining Spark on top and Peppy San Badger on the bottom. She is currently bred to Thrift Shop Fabulous, a grandson to Frenchman's Guy. So keep an eye out for her 2022 foal - it is going to be a great one!

It's time to meet Gallo Watch aka "Hibiscus." Her foals tend to change color (gray out), so we named her after a color changing flower. The hibiscus also happens to be my and my grandfather’s favorite flower. This mare is a unique combination of Shining Spark bred on top and Pitzer bred on bottom. She has excellent breeding, hip, color, and conformation. Hibiscus loves long belly deep grass and eating treats out of your hand. Bred to Lottashineycash, we are excited to see what color foal she will throw this spring. 📸: and Chris Weber

Introducing Red Joe Missy (aka “Vidalia”). She’s named after the great Sammy Kershaw country song, and is sweet just like a vidalia onion. This shaggy maned mare is always watching you through her long forelock, and is the first to greet you at the gate. A Pitzer bred mare, she’s the kind ranchers dream of, with lots of bone and muscle. Vidalia and Lottashineycash are going to make an absolutely stunning 2022 foal!

Meet Jennie Gallo aka “Chiquitita”. This beautiful 10 year old buckskin dun mare is certainly an eye catcher. Named Chiquitita because of my mother’s love for the 70’s band, ABBA. Like the ladies of ABBA, this mare has exceptional legs. Her pedigree is also impressive, and includes Gallo Del Cielo and the legendary Doc Bar. She’s bred to Lottashineycash, a son of Shining Spark, and is due to foal in June. We are excited to see her foal! 📸: and Chris Weber

Miss Pauline aka “Pinny” is a 7 year old mare with a stout conformation. We named her Pinny because of the snip on her nose which resembles a mountain Pinnacle. Her good looks are no surprise given her outstanding pedigree. She’s a full sister to another Rafter 54 mare “Sukari”, and both are bred to Lottashineycash, an own son of the legendary Shining Spark. We are very excited about her foal this spring! 📸: Chris Weber

Introducing Teggy Gallo aka “Daiquiri.” This 7 year old stocky bay has a great hip and conformation.  Her sweet disposition is something she is sure to pass on to her foals. She loves treats and grazing in belly-deep pasture. She is the first one of our mares due to foal and we are super excited to see her foal in the spring! She is bred to Lottashineycash, a fabulous sorrel stud, so we are excited to see what color she throws.

Meet Roosters SugarNSpice aka “Sukari.” This spicey little 4 year old AQHA mare is super sweet. She is in foal to Lottashineycash and due in April. With a great hip, she’s a head turner for sure. She loves treats as well as scratches behind her ears. We are excited to see what color this beautiful palomino mare’s foal will be. Any guesses?
