Purchased at a reining sale at the 1998 NRHA Futurity in Oklahoma City, Freckles Rocky Road (Rocky) is a son of Freckles Hustler, highest earning offspring of Jewels Leo Bars (Freckles).
Freckles Hustler was Open Champion Stallion at the 1980 NCHA Futurity (tied for 3rd overall) and Open Champion of the 1981 Atlantic Coast Futurity. He is a full brother to Freckles Playboy (NCHA Futurity Open Co-Reserve Champion, produced an Open Champion) and a 3/4 brother to Colonel Freckles (NCHA Futurity Open Champion and producer of same). A daughter of Freckles Hustler produced the Open Reserve Champion of the 1999 NRHA Futurity. Another produced the 5th high-selling 1999 performance horse at the 1999 cutting sale (Equistat: $210,000). Another daughter is AQHA World Champion Cutting Mare.
Rocky's dam, Cutter's Rocky Road, is a producing mare by the World Champion Cutting Horse and World Champion Producer, Cutter Bill. The second dam is by Rocksprings by King P-234, and out of a George Clegg daughter.
Rocky was ridden a few months of 1999, then placed with mares at 24 months of age. Pastured with four full-sister mares, he has produced four good-boned, well-buuilt, correct foals each year. He is a quick-learning, gentle stallion. On his first saddling and mounting he took up following our Border Collie at a trot around the arena. On the second, he walked confidently out to the road and began a soft canter, continuing a half mile, and turning back quietly when asked.
Many of Rocky's get have proven themselves to be excellent competitors in roping, reining and cutting, and equestrian events. They have been shown to possess Rocky's quiet demeanor, intelligence, kindness and disposition. All are first-rate family and using horses. Rocky is a proven sire of the best kind and a look at his extended pedigree will show why.
Rocky's babies are some amazing horses that you don't want to pass up.
