Athena Puddy Cat x Double R Chances

This buckskin son of Athena Puddy Cat is a striking prospect, who has logged many miles in Red Bluff, CA gathering cattle off the winter pasture at Four Mile Creek Ranch.  Chance handled that rough country and sorting the pairs with confidence.  With his pedigree, he could excel in cutting, reining or reined cow horse. We have retained him in our herd as a go to horse when friends need help and to show at the American Stock Horse Association classes in Eugene, Or.

Lookout Ranch winters their cow herd west of Red Bluff, CA. Each May, Chance and I head to the 4,000 acre Four Mile Creek Ranch and help gather the cattle with Ben Roark. The cattle are trucked up to summer pasture up near Anderson, CA until October, when they make the trip back down to Red Bluff. We started making the trip in 2013 when Chance was a 3 yr old. It is a great trip to season Chance on ranch horse duties where maneuvers have meaning and being tired at the end of the day is a normal result.
