Tonight I checked my email and found an email from my friend Jack Sterling. Jack is from Billings and was up on the mountain early this morning. He discovered Ketchikan with her new colt just below my campsite. This is a really special foal. The bloodline of Ketchikan is very rare, with few horses to carry on his important line. I pray that this beautiful and his mother can survive the winter. He looks strong, and Ketchikan also looks great. The fall weather has been mild and hopefully winter will hold off for a while.
Foal number 20, born to the mare Ketchikan, (born in 2010), daughter of Gold Rush and Two Boots. Father of this foal may be either the stallion Gringo or Tecumseh. The foal is a colt.
Jack was the person who discovered Odakota also. I look forward to finding out what he chooses for this one.
UPDATE: Jack said he will not be naming this foal, but that there will be an Alaskan theme, named by a friend of Steve and Nancy Cerroni.
Thanks so much Jack!
