Our Foals

 I just love the babies! I will admit sharing them with others pulls at my heart strings, however, helping to fulfill the dream of special people around the world is so rewarding and wonderful.  We are taking reservations for foals for 2018 already. If you have interest in reserving a foal you can visit the Reserve A Foal page for more information and please contact us with any questions. We hope to meet you one day! We have 8 mares confirmed in foal for 2018.

The foals are sure growing fast! Below is a little slide show of a few photos Derrick took at graining time. We usually bring the mare and foals in for grain, however, it's time to start transitioning and having the foals come in without their Mom's. They come into the arena first and then into the barn without Mom's.  We will start weaning some of the foals this month.

RBD Sue's Lonesome Dove

(Amberfields Blaze N Dun x Truwest Adobe Rose)

Homozygous Grulla Filly!!! Coat Color results EE aa DD! 

We are retaining this filly for our future

I am over the moon!!! Dove is a dream come true for Rafter Bar D and the future of producing quality colorful Morgans. I fell in love with our little Dove's grandmother, Amberfields Lonesome Dove (Blaze's dam), years ago and even asked Judy if I could buy her...but she was one Judy could never let go and I can't blame her. It is with Judy's blessing that we named her to honor her grandmother. I have always wanted a Lonesome Dove, and here she is friends. It was Derrick's idea to add my name in there, which I wasn't sure at first, but I like it.

Dove's future when she matures is to produce exceptional grulla foals with our black stallions. With her color genetics being EEaaDD, when bred to our blacks who are both homozygous EE, she will produce 100% grulla's with the coat color of the foals being EEaaDd every time. I have had several people ask me this year how long the wait was for a grulla... I said I was working on it and here she is. It is my hope she can produce foals like herself for others to enjoy and help the colorful Morgans to grow ♥

She is a big strong athletic filly with an exceptionally beautiful head and eye. Her Morgan type is excellent and she's full of personality and so much character. I love this filly and I'm excited for her future with us as a riding horse and a breeding mare to produce foals just like her for you.

RBD Zenith Sentinel Knight

(Amberfields Blaze N Dun x Marieke fan North Ster)

Zebra Dun (Bay Dun) Moriesian Colt  EE Aa Dd

Z13 - Copy
Z22 - Copy

Zenith is the time at which something is the most powerful or successful. It is also the highest point reached in the heavens. A Sentinel is a soldier or guard who stands watch and a Knight is one who served his sovereign or lord as a mounted soldier in armor. Introducing a very special colt destined to fullfill a dream "RBD Zenith Sentinel Knight" who is the first zebra dun Moriesian to be registered with the Moriesian Horse Registry.

There is a wonderful gal in New York who has a vision and reserved this foal nearly a year ago praying for a very special colt. Congratulations Jamie Lynn!!!

Jamie is really captivated by the Moriesian and her goal is to raise second generation Moriesians in unique colors. Zenith is destined to be her future herd sire! Jamie also has a Moriesian foal reserved from Rusan Nyborg, who raises beautiful Moriesians, and now we are praying for a beautiful filly for the beginning of an exceptional breeding pair. We are very excited to see Jamie's Moriesian breeding program progress and we are honored to be part of the foundation of her second generation breeding program.

You can also visit the Moriesian page on our site learn more and see a full sister to Zenith from last year. Enjoy Zenith's photo slide show below. 🙂

RBD Gift Of Gabriel

(Amberfields Blaze N Dun x RBD True Gabriella)

Grulla Colt

Gabe6 - Copy
Gabe21 - Copy

Gabriel means "God is my strength" and is one of the archangels. In honor of his mother, Gabriella, who was an orphan and because we are blessed that he is here with us... Gabe was a week early and stuck inside, and not quite in position for his Mom to have him. I had to go inside and move him around and McKayla and I pulled him and brought him into the world. We are blessed to have this colt with us.

Gabe is such a BIG tall beautiful colt with so much character and so curious and brave. From his dark undertones we are pretty sure he is a grulla, however, we will coat color test him. Gabe is going to a special home in CA in the fall to spend his life with Christina Marquez. She is over the moon excited to be blessed with such a beautiful colt. Congratulations!! Enjoy his photo slideshow below. 🙂

RBD Irish Goddess Epona

(Irish Entertainment x JMF Licorice Schnapps)

Homozygous Black Filly

Epona9 - Copy
Epona01 - Copy

Epona was born just knowing she was special. The blackest foal I've ever seen with the most beautiful eyes. A daughter of the legendary Irish Entertainment and a keeper for the future of our breeding program. We just love this filly!

Her name, Epona, was revered in ancient times as the goddess who was the loving protector of horses and other animals. She was also a goddess of fertility, rebirth and abundance. The Romans saw her as the protector of their cavalry. The name Epona means "Divine Mare".

Epona is homozygous for black and she is full of character. She is destined to be a future riding partner and breeding mare to produce very special foals for Morgan lovers who want these wonderful old lines.

There is something about her that is just a little extra special. Rafter Bar D is blessed. Enjoy Epona's slideshow below. 🙂
