Krisean Performance Horses and our .... Kiger Mustangs

 

Kiger Mustangs…intelligent, beautiful, versatile athletes…are considered “living genetic treasures” that embody the very essence of what it means to be called a horse.

Krisean Performance Horses in partnership with Rod Giffels welcomed two Kiger Mustangs to our herd in 2010, Steens Angelina a 2001 Kiger Mustang mare that was captured from the wild Kiger herd as a 2 year old and Steens Aleta, Angelina's 2009 filly by Steens Vaquero.

Steens Angelina came to us in foal to Steens Vaquero for a June 2010 foal. She foaled a beautiful dun colt who immediately became "Scamp" after rolling under the fence twice! Everyone visiting the ranch has become enamored with the three Kigers. What regal, kind horses yet with a spirit all their own.

Introducing... 2010 Kiger Mustang Colt ~ Steens El Tesoro

El Tesoro means "treasure" in Spanish and indeed what a treasure this colt is. He carries the blood of two wild Kiger mustangs caught from the Steens Mountain reserve in south eastern Oregon. Tesoro, as he is known around the ranch, has one of the nicest lopes I have seen on such a young colt. Lead changes are effortless and a sliding stop usually ends a long run. Already he shows the promise of size and should mature over 15 hands.
