Mission Ridge Farm

Breeders of Rare Cremello, Buckskin and Palomino Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds!

Wonder is a 2009 palomino JC Thoroughbred colt by Snowy River out of the 17.2hh Thoroughbred mare Star’s Search. Wonder is one of our favorites as he has such a sweet trusting friendly personality, a real in-your-pocket type of horse that anyone would love! Wonder is a pretty palomino with a big blaze and some socks. Wonder should mature to the 17.2hh range like his dam and older siblings. Like his dam he has a ton of bone and body for a Thoroughbred though still has lovely free shouldered movement with a big step. Wonder is the spitting image of his older full brother Mining For Gold, who is just starting his hunter and breeding careers in western Canada. The only difference between the two at this age is Wonder has a longer neck than his big brother, he should mature at least as nice and be a wonderful prospect for any discipline for his new owner! This is a special colt that will be a joy to own, ride and show.
