Gun Runner's grooming routine

Gun Runner is taken out of his stall around 8:30 each morning to be groomed. The stallions at Three Chimneys Farm are shown frequently to breeders during the day, and the staff want them looking their best and brightest at all times. When Gun Runner leaves his stall during the late morning hours, he is typically being shown to prospective breeders. It is important for breeders to examine the stallions to make sure their conformation and physical attributes compliment that of their mare.

In regards to grooming, the stallion manager shared "We don’t use anything special on Gun Runner’s coat, just good quality feed & hay with lots of elbow grease!  When it’s warm enough he gets hosed off with plain water & usually gets a soap bath once a week.  We do put Show Sheen in his tail to make it easy to brush." 

Naturally, he is a beautiful, handsome horse!

At Three Chimneys Farm, the majority of our stallions do not wear horseshoes. We leave Gun Runner barefoot and he gets a visit from the farrier every 4-6 weeks for a hoof trim. Below is a video of Gun Runner receiving his normal hoof trim. 

Happy Birthday, Gun Runner!

This Sunday, March 8th is Gun Runner's 7th birthday! Here is a little backstory on young Gun Runner from Three Chimneys Farm. 

Gun Runner was born at neighboring WinStar Farm in Versailles, Kentucky on March 8, 2013. As a weanling, Gun Runner along with his dam and grand dam were purchased privately by Three Chimneys Farm from Besilu Stables. He was then moved to Three Chimneys Farm where he was raised from the time he was a weanling.

Gun Runner skipped the yearling sales and instead was pointed to a 2YO sale. It was at a 2-year-old sale Winchell Thoroughbreds approached Three Chimneys to partner together on the colt. And as they say, the rest is history!   

Below are a few photos. From the top, Gun Runner as a colt then pictured as a yearling. Isn't he handsome?
