A Driving Pair - Full Brothers

Keewatin Riel Ezekiel (Zeke)

BORN: 20 April 1995
SIRE: Maple Lane Thunder Boy Riel #5818

Keewatin Riel George
BREED: Canadien, 7/8 (87.5%) Reg #8275
SEX: Male - Gelding
BORN: 21 September 1997
SIRE: Maple Lane Thunder Boy Riel #5818
DAM: Saroma Elegant Superbe #S4823
COLOUR:
Black/brown
NOTES: Trained to halter, farrier, some saddle work, started in harness.

Zeke and George have been working with a teamster this winter of 2004-2005 and are coming along very well. For the summer they are going to be working at the Motherwell Homestead - a national historic site near Abernethy Saskatchewan, where the farm is meant to be a working farm during the summer seaon. They should get a lot of experience with people, pulling wagons and other equipment. The teamster intends to drive them back and forth to work - 7 miles one-way - so they should be in very fit condition by the time fall rolls around.

Zeke is a little larger - about 15.2- and about 100 pounds heavier than George (15.1 hh) but their confirmation and appearance is very similar. They look pretty snappy when stepping out , not too suprising because their mother Saroma Elegant Superbe also has that characteristic under harness.

  • Justin is the only chestnut we produced from Felipe (whose mother Bianca, is a chestnut) matched with our black mares. He is a self-confident horse, and the trainer has said he will require a strong personality to match him.

Fillies

Keewatin Felipe Just Innocent
BREED: Canadien, Purebred, Reg. #8272
SEX: Female
BORN: 24 May 1999
SIRE: Maple Lane Petroski Yukon Felipe- Reg. #6834
DAM: North Country Riel Fantine- Reg. #7032
COLOUR:
Medium Bay
NOTES:
  • Trained to halter, farrier, green started to saddle (four weeks training - Nov 04).
  • Just Innocent is a gentle horse in outward disposition (as was her mother) but according to our trainer she is very quick and responsive under saddle. He says “ it’s a shame if she doesn’t go into cutting or reining. She can already turn on a dime”.

Keewatin Felipe Josette
BREED: Canadien, Purebred, Reg #8351
SEX: Female
BORN: 23 May 1999
SIRE: Petroski Yukon Felipe- Reg #6834
DAM: North Country Riel Fauve - Reg. # 6923
COLOUR:
Black, w/ diamond on forehead & two rear part stockings
NOTES:
  • Trained to halter, farrier.
  • Josette is a calm character, probably from her experience with a leg injury when she was a yearling, during which time we had to wash and dress her leg daily for several weeks. She has no physical effects of the injury but she did become very used to handling and its shows in her demeanour.

NOTES:
  • Trained to halter, farrier.
  • Lucky is the third of three offerings from our first Canadien horse at Keewatin Farm - Athena . Lucky is likely to finish out about 14.2 - 14.3 hh and be moderate dispositioned horse of typey traditional build.

Keewatin Felipe Lulu
BREED: Canadien, unregisterable
SEX: Female
BORN: 1 May 2001
SIRE: Petroski Yukon Felipe - Reg.# 6834
DAM: Keewatin Felipe Francine - unregisterable
COLOUR:
Black
NOTES:
  • Trained to halter, farrier.
  • Lulu is unregisterable (see explanation in Background Notes above), but very much a traditional Canadien - shorter and stockier with tendency to curly forelock and mane. She is pretty laid back, as might be expected given the nature of her mother. If you want the characteristics of a Canadien and don’t care about papers, she may be your horse (cheaper to buy, too!)
