Eagles' Nest" Americus ("Bull") x Lost Creek Ranger Ceilidh

Ouray is proving to be energetic when circumstances permit, yet able to both contain that exuberance when appropriate AND discern when "appropriate" is. A real level-headed guy!

Ouray has the "power butt" muscling that we value so highly coming from both grandsires Ranger Dusty and Gold'n Hawk; he also has many other outstanding physical attributes inherited from both, as well as arrow-straight movement and stance. At this point we expect his Classic coat to be mid-length like his mom, but time will tell.

We're retaining Ouray as a stud prospect for the next generation of our own breeding program.

"Ouray" is a native (Ute) word meaning "arrow", best known as the name of a chief who continually sought peace with the whites. There's also a town named Ouray in Colorado, but the pronuniation is different (OO-ray for our guy and the Native American; YOO-ray for the town). Our Ouray is straight as an arrow, and he's definitely a peaceable sort.
