Rudy is a 15.3HH light bay gelding who is 14 years old. He can do anything on the ranch and is considered the best roping horse there. He's safe and fun to ride. He's very "cowy," so he will correctly cut the cows as long as you let him work and just enjoy the ride.
Out of the Blue Valentine line, he has all the great ranch horse qualities of that line.
