Ontario based breeding/training farm (Blazing Colours Farm) has sold TWO white Thoroughbreds to Disney that will star as "Silver" in the Lone Ranger!!
Cloud Ten and White Pharaoh (both sons of Sato) were sold in 2011. I've been keeping this under my hat for 2 years and now with the movie set to come out July 3, it is time to let the cat out of the bag...
White Pharaoh was used in most all of the galloping stunts, jumping, shooting from etc. What an incredible gelding this is to handle all of the movie madness.

Join/Like Blazing Colours Farm on Facebook for daily news and pictures of these horses!

Cloud Ten was used as the horse that did the rearing and is the horse used as the poster child with Armie Hammer riding him. Picture below...
I am thrilled to finally be making this announcement public. Both horses were born, raised and trained by myself.
Cloud Ten was gelded just prior to leaving for Hollywood but not before I froze a bunch of semen from him. So there will be semen available from him after the movie comes out. I also have two 3 year old white/cremello colts sired by Cloud Ten that are learning to drive and will be my combined driving horses soon and they will also be for hire to do weddings and special events!

Everyone enjoy watching my kids on the big screen...

The Press Release can be seen here. Share it and spread the word... The Press Release can be seen here. Sha...e Ranger movie!

It is very exciting and we are all making a BIG night of it on July 3rd to go watch the movie together.

I did write what the horses are doing now and what the plans are for them for the future in the press release. They got a much deserved rest after the filming. They will be retained for a possible "part 2" of the movie in the future. They will also be used in future movies or commericials where big gorgeous athletic white hores are needed.

Thanks everyone! I am very excited. This behind the scenes clip just came out of training the horses. Cloud Ten rears and interacts with people and White Pharaoh gallops with Armie Hammer riding him when Johnny Depp falls off and get stepped on by his horse. White Pharaoh also gallops through the train and gallops jumping the barrel.
Love seeing my kids on the big screen!!

Here is the link to the video of them being trained on set for the Lone Ranger http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIoDlPsI-wo

I am SO happy to still have two sons of Cloud Ten in my breeding program!

Congratulations, Faith. It's such a feather in your cap to not only have bred but trained these horses also.

Well done!
