...mostly dun, named for the Steens &/or Kiger mountains,
valleys, etc. in Oregon. This one is Kiger Cougar, who was long a star at,
and whom we met at, the Kentucky Horse Park, near Lexington, KY,
with this then-handler and rider, Jennifer, who then became a
dungenes list member.
The webmaster wishes to thank Bettye Roberts, Kim Bauer, and the many
who helped me learn many things about Kiger Mustangs
back around "the
turn of the century". :-)
In September of 2001, Barbara Kostelnik, the webmaster and founder of
dungenes, visited Portland, Oregon ...
to hear Dr. Gus Cothran explain the results of his research on the
genetics of Kiger Mustangs;
I also visited Carol Pshigoda's Cream Acres in Bend (Alfalfa) to verify
that American Cream Draft Horses are champagne (and yes, they are usually
stayed one night at Timberline Lodge and fell in love with it and Mt.
Hood, and during this trip also ...
met Dianne Chaffee, a dungenes list member who owns
Canyon Creek Kigers in Washington State, and who also attended Dr.
visited the Steens Kiger ranch in
2000 and "met" Steens Kiger, sire of Donner, and the stallion
Silverado, as well as many beautiful Kiger foals and their
dams; see also "Mestana line" for
some relatives of some of his horses;
on a similar trip the following year I "met" Erin Gray's Sorraia stallion, Sovina, her
friend, and other horses that were there at that time (see "Sorraia" under
breeds), but I missed meeting Erin (I waited and waited but she was out
somewhere ... but we're good friends online.) Sovina is the top left
photo on every page of this web site!
