Kip has been growing up on the ranch since the spring of 2021. His dam's sire, Canadian Shaker of McDonald Farms has greats like Mack K's Handshaker, Merry Go Boy, Merry Boy, Midnight Mack K, and Deep Purple all close up on his pedigree. Kip's heritage shows in his ease of gait and gentle demeanor. He is easy to handle and work with. Kip is easy to catch, good for the farrier, ties and loads. His training so far has been a slow burn; he used to be quite small but has grown a lot during the end of his 3-year-old year.
Kip was started under saddle in August of 2022, and then put back to pasture to grow up. In February 2023 he went for his first trail ride ever, after sitting since the end of August. He was a real super star, proving once again that giving these young horses time to soak really works. He was also hauled to an arena a few days later and once again showed us why we love the old bloodlines!
Kip will continue to be ridden lightly for the rest of 2023 to give his body time to develop and mature.
If Kip sounds like a horse you would get along with, please contact myself or Steeve to chat more.
