Rojo is a 22 year old AQHA veteran calf horse. His experiences and the arenas where he has been taken are more numerous than we can name, or probably even know. His winnings range from PRCA to college rodeos. Most recently he has been used at college rodeos and we'll most likely haul him to a few Southwest Region rodeos this fall. However, in the last two years he was high call at Cheyenne Frontier Days, as well as, won the St. Paul, Oregon PRCA rodeo. In the last year he also won and placed at numerous college and amateur rodeos.
We have owned Rojo a little over a year. Although he still has the speed and strength to compete at college and high school rodeos, we can see that he has lost a little bit of a step for us to be able to use him at the PRCA level and open rodeo level.
Rojo is a big, strong horse. He stands at least 15.1 hands and weighs 1200-1250 lbs. He still stops hard and pulls consistently as you can see in the videos. He scores well and doesn't make mistakes. He has an easy personality and gets along well with other horses. He hauls well and is easy to shoe. As gentle as he is, he still has explosive power. In fact, a novice rider might have trouble riding him out of the box because of this strength across the line.
We feel like one reason he is still so competitive at his age is that he has been well maintained. Because Rojo has only had one owner prior to us and we both used Dr. Chris Morrow, in Amarillo, TX, he has had the same vet for most of his life. He does require egg bar shoes and regular injections.
Rojo still has a lot of wins left in him and we just aren't interested in selling him as a practice horse. Thanks for your interest.
