Pinto Mare for Sale in Kooskia, ID
'Cheyenne' came to our home, in foal, as a four year old. She had a beautiful, blue - eyed filly. (Foal not for sale) . Cheyenne was bred back to our registered paint stallion. (Head - shot photo is our stallion) . I did not have her preg - tested but she is looking in foal. She would foal in June 2005. Cheyenne is not registerd, nor do I know anything about how gaited she is. I don't usually breed TW, nor do I know anything about them. I bought her at a sale to keep her from going to canner. (It was revealed she was in foal at the sale and I couldn't bare the thought of it all. ) Cheyenne is well started under saddle. She loads, hauls, bathes and trims wonderfully. Easy breeder and keeper. A GOOD home is essential.
About Kooskia, ID
Chief Looking Glass lived in a village a short distance above what is now Kooskia with his band of Nez Perce. This regular home was well within the boundaries of the reservation created in 1863, but just before the Nez Perce War an American General was sent to arrest Chief Looking Glass and all other Nez Perce with him. When trigger-happy militiamen opened fire into the village, many Nez Perce died and their village was destroyed in the scuffle. Because of this incident, Looking Glass joined with the Nez Perce for the Nez Perce War. The name of the town is likely a contraction of the Nez Perce word "koos-koos-kia," a diminutive which refers to the Clearwater River, the lesser of the two large rivers in the vicinity, the other being the Snake.
