Laredo Moon is our buckskin son of Travelers Moon Frost. Laredo is a triple registered buckskin Tennessee Walking Horse. He is registered with the TWHBEA, the International Buckskin Horse Association (IBHA), Part Walking Horse Registry (PWHR) and Natural Ambling Horse Registry (NAHR).
Laredo has several old World Grand Champions in his pedigree, they are Ebony Masterpiece, Merry Go Boy, Go Boy's Shadow, Mack K's Handshaker, Midnight Sun and Go Boy's Royal Heir. Go Boy's Shadow, Black Dust M.R. and Norris Moonbeam still shows on his papers. Laredo also has old time breeding going back to Calvin Miller breeding. He goes back to Sun's Merry Man twice, who is a son of the 14 time World Champion Reyclif Mid-Merry or better know as Hill's Perfection. Laredo also goes back to Roy Roger's Trigger Jr. twice (Allen's Gold Zephyr). Laredo has old time breeding and natural gait. His pedigree is a great cross between old western walking horses and old World Grand Champions and his color is just a plus. Laredo has no Pride of Midnight blood.
Laredo is a very gentle stallion. He has puppy dog personality. He will come up to you in the middle of the pasture just to get attention. You can even catch him the pasture and hop on bareback and ride him away in a halter, even away from mares. He was broke to ride as a two year old. Quite and honest in his work ethic, he is gentle enough for kids to ride and inexperienced riders. On long days working cattle he lets Krista's Australian Shepherds ride behind the saddle. Laredo has even been rode around mares in heat and never blinked an eye. He is a real gentleman. Laredo is even gentle enough to wean foals with him.
Laredo has proven to be very versatile. He has done everything from ranch work to showing in open shows to ranch rodeos to parades. Laredo willing performs all tasks of ranch work. He loves to work cattle. In the show circuit, Laredo was shown in Halter, Bareback Equitation, Trail Classes, Ranch Horse Class, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending and the Flag Race. He can be rode Western, English and bareback. Another one of his great qualities is he has a ground covering running walk.
Laredo's foals have dispositions that are hard to beat and all gait naturally. They also have great conformation. All his foals have been super easy to work with. Click here to see his get.
Laredo is one of Krista's favorite mounts.
Laredo stands at 15.2 hands.
