SOLD -- Finn MacCool, 2004 RPS palomino Mare, $8,500

Rare palomino sport horse with super conformation! As far as “blood,” it would be hard to find a weak link in Finn’s pedigree. His sire, the young cremello TB stallion GOLDMAKER, is from the same lines as IHF winners Gold Apollo & Smoking Gun. GOLDMAKER himself was sired by the FEI dressage horse, GLITTER PLEASE, one of the few palomino TBs in the USA. GOLDMAKER'S dam was a winning H/J and producer of champions, including GM's full brother, DREAM of GOLD, who in turn has produced multiple in-hand champions at Devon and other top-rated shows. GOLDMAKER himself is now beginning his show career in Florida in H/J. Finn's dam, the Hanoverian mare ROSINANTE, is by RUBINO BELLISSIMO. ROSINANTE'S Dam Sire is the imported German stallion BATIDO, a BOLERO son (BOLERO horses also being known for high rideability, as demonstrated by such BOLERO descendants as Brentina, Olympic & WEG winner). BATIDO (under Olympic rider Gunter Seidel) was HOY several times and competed successfully all the way to Grand Prix level also with Nicole Perry when she was a young rider. FINN MAC COOL is showing his pedigree.. At a only 70 days old (and in a butt-high stage) he scored 7.6 pts in gaits at his RPSI inspection and gained a Silver Premium rating. He will be a deep, rich golden palomino. And the BEST part? FINN is an absolute sweetie pie to handle! He is easy-going, smart, confident and willing -- a total joy to work with. FINN will make a lovely performance horse and partner for one very lucky rider. Contact Reckless Heart Ranch (208)265-4837 or reckless@sandpoint.net Asking $8,500.
