Pat Parelli Purchases His Road to the Horse Colt from the 6666 Ranch

Home » Blog » News

Pat Parelli and the colt Hey Whiskey, now known as Troubadour, met at the Road to the Horse – the World Championship—starting February 25-27 in front of sold-out crowds at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, TN. The 3-year-old colt was bred by the esteemed 6666 Ranch and is sired by Paddys Irish Whiskey and out of Hey Doll Baby by Juno Dat Cash.

When asked by event host Rick Lamb if he felt “he could win the event” on the winsome sorrel gelding, Parelli answered, “I think I can win the horse’s heart.” In the end, though not an uncomplicated task, that is exactly what happened.

On day two, Parelli guided the colt quietly through the obstacle course in only a hackamore and bounced a 4-foot diameter ball above the colt’s touchy right side without it moving a muscle. Just moments earlier, Parelli had announced the decision to purchase his colt.
