The top name suggestions are in and it certainly was an online battle between Lotta Chrome and Splash --- with Splash winning out by a few votes. A new car is being shipped today to the winner. Although Tonka is not a brand name you may be use to, they do make a great economical vehicle . We had a great time watching the votes come in as well. Thanks again to all that participated (click the above image to see new pictures of Splash).

Located about two hours north-east of Toronto, in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes region, is Rocky Mountain Farm. This 140 acre farm has been home to the Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse breeds for over 10 years and home to their breeder and trainer, Colleen Wood. The farm has access to miles of scenic trails for pleasure riding and training here and on neighbouring property. Lightly travelled country roads are available and we’re only minutes from the Victoria Rail Trail that leads north to Kinmount or south to Fenelon Falls.

Each spring the new foals arrive. There's usually between eight to twelve babies, depending on the year, about half of which will be sold as weanlings. The balance are kept and trained under saddle, generally being offered for sale as three year-olds. The Rocky Mountain Horse is very hardy. They foal on pasture and live outside all year, except during their weaning. They are fed outside in winter from round bale feeders and very seldom make use of the run in barn available to them, even in a driving snow storm with temperatures around zero. All the horses are sold on a 30 day money back guarantee (we've never had one back) and their vision status is guaranteed. We have a select few mares with quality foals every spring. Bloodlines such as Dock, Clemon’s Tim, Sewell’s Sam and Goldfinger are prized for the old Mountain Horse conformation and temperament. Horses are available as weanlings, yearlings and riding horses with trail experience. The Rocky Mountain Horse is very hardy. They have access to 24 hour pasture or hay in the winter and are fed grain and vitamins daily. All of the horses are sold with a 30 day money back guarantee of satisfaction.
