2014 Dunalino Stallion by Berry Shiny out of Hollywood Looka Like
Finn is a beautiful dunalino stallion by the great Berry Shiny out of a Hollywood Twista mare. He has a gorgeous head and neck and stands out in the crowd! Finn stands 15.1hh and has decent bone, excellent feet and a fabulous mind. Finn was started as a 2 year old where the primary focus was reining, but he also was taken out on the trail (first poker ride with only 30 days on him) and competed in a cowboy challenge competition. Finn was incredibly easy to start and had that born broke mentality with a lot of natural balance in all three gaits.
Finn was shown twice in his futurity year (3 year old) after only 12 months of training, placing 4th in the NRHA Level 1 Open Futurity at the RA Fall Classic and 1st place in the NRHA Level 4 Open Futurity at the PGRHA Fall Slide. Finn is very smooth to ride!
Finn competed at 3 shows in his 4 year old derby year. The judges often rewarded his stops and circles with plus scores, but because he is behind as a 4 year old, he couldn't quite nail his spins one handed just yet. Finn has a smooth flowing stop and has been one of the easiest lead changing horses Nicole has ever trained.
Nicole can feel the talent in this willing young horse and is looking forward to finishing him this winter before hitting the show circuit for his 5 year old year. Finn has an incredible mind and is very focused and is a lazy sensitive type of guy.
Finn live covered 3 mares throughout May, June and July 2018 and was not only a gentleman to handle, he remained a perfect gentlemen to train and show; most people were unaware that he was even a stallion at all the events he attended this year. He is a very soft stallion that doesn't want to get into trouble. Nicole is proud to announce that all three mares are in foal and the first foal crop will be born spring/summer 2019! Finn will be nominated for the RAPP in 2019 and possibly the Canadian Supreme. At this time, Nicole is undecided as to if she will allow outside mares to breed to Finn in 2019. Stay tuned!
