Sunrider, affectionately known as "Rambo" was originally registered as a chestnut,
but he was actually a chocolate (sooty) palomino. He was foaled in 1986, a son of
Merry Man's Charm a direct daughter of Sun's Merry Man. Sun's Merry Man
was one of only four offspring by Reycliff Mid-Merry, better known as the
show horse, Hill's Perfection, and the ONLY offspring to reproduce.
Sunrider produced only three
foals before he was gelded: Sunrider's Gold Boot (palomino stallion),
Gold (cremello stallion), and Sunrider's Delight (palomino gelding).

registered yet, so that was part of the agreement that we took care
of the paper work. He was a very gentle stallion and liked to watch
our young children at play across the fence.
He once chased an elk out of our pasture, I wish I had photos of
Soon after we returned Rambo in January of 1990, his owner gelded
