'Feather' is a gorgeous black appaloosa. Feather has had a chestnut appy colt March 25th, 2011....an absolutely gorgeous blue roan appy filly April 14, 2013....a blue roan colt April 5, 2014.....and a tiny blue roan filly July 8, 2015. I just love what this mare produces. I'm retaining her 2013 filly as a future broodmare. Feather is bred to my newest stallion, Heartbreaker, for a late April 2017 foal.

Giselle is a great addition to my herd. She goes back to Brewers Orion Mystic and Orion Light Vant Huttenest. Giselle has a wonderful floating trot, full of action. Her papers say she's a buckskin but she looks like a bay and has only thrown chestnut and bay colored foals so far, so pretty sure her paperwork is wrong. Giselle was supposedly "open" for 2013 but instead had a gorgeous bay colt April 19, 2013. Click on the picture above right to see him. Very pleasant mare to be around. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Main picture above was taken when she was pregnant :) Giselle had a stunning bay colt May 8, 2014. Giselle finally gave me a gorgeous blue roan filly May 8, 2015. **UPDATE: Giselle had another filly, this time a bay, on July 22, 2017. This mare produces awesome show quality foals.

"Willow" is a recent addition to my herd. After a lot of research into the dun gene, I realized that most of my herd wasn't dun. LT and her offspring were the only dun horses in my herd. Since I sold all of LT's offspring this year, I decided to look for some more true dun horses to add to my herd. I ended up purchasing two young mares out of a true grulla dam. Willow has been DNA tested and is homozygous for black and carries no agouti or cream gene. Her lighter coat color is due to her dun gene. No need to test her for the dun gene, as she has the leg barring, dorsal stripe and lighter body color of a true dun. A wonderful addition to my herd. Willow is bred to Whiz for a late March 2017 foal. This foal will be homozygous for black, since both sire and dam are homozygous for black.

"Cameo" is a half sister to Willow above. They are both out of a true grulla mare, Dixie Belle, and both are grullas themselves. Cameo happens to be a silver grulla appaloosa and is a great addition to my herd. Cameo will be bred to Lil Whiz next spring.

"Dream" is a dream come true, thus her name. I just purchased Dream from the Little King Farm in December of 2015. LKF let me name her and Jamaica Me Dream fits. I've always wanted to own LKF horses. Now I own 3, as I've also purchased Dream's dam, Shine, and a Buckeroo son, Heartbreaker. All go back to the East Acres Golden Jubilee line, which LKF raised many champions from. What awesome additions to my herd.

Shine is a fabulous new mare I just purchased. She is the dam of Jamaica Me Dream above. Shine is bred back to Zipit for a 2016 foal. Shine goes back to East Acres Golden Jubilee, Komokos Little King Supreme (twice) and Flying W Farms Little Blue Boy. I'm looking forward to getting some extraordinary foals from Shine. Both Shine and Heartbreaker, my new Little King stallion, are out of the same dam, Little Kings Jamaica Jubilee. They are perfect to cross with my Lil Whiz foals. Believe it or not, Shine is 7 months pregnant in these photos. UPDATE: Shine had a stunning palomino filly on my birthday. What a present!

Sky is a dream come true for me. Awesome color, super straight, gorgeous trot and so refined. Both her sire and grandsire are Lil Whiz. Check him out, on my "stallions" page, as he's absolutely stunning. Looking at Sky's photo, it's hard to believe how tiny she is. UPDATE - Sky took several 1st places and one Grand Champion at the NWMHC AMHA shows in 2012. At the AMHA Western Regionals, Sky ended up taking a Reserve Champion ribbon as well (pictured above). Sky was the NWMHC Year End High Point winner for Solid Colored Mares. Sky also took the NWMHC Year End Reserve High Point award for Yearling Mares 28" And Under. What a great job for her only year showing. Sky is so small that I waited until she was 4 years old before breeding her. Sky had a tiny perfect little colt March 16th, 2016.....over 3 weeks early. I'd just taken her off of watch, and put another mare on, as Sky wasn't progressing, or so I thought. The tiny little colt didn't survive without me attending. Devastated and feel so bad! Gorgeous foal, so will try this pairing again. Sky is bred to Spider for an April or May 2017 foal.

What a gorgeous mare. Addy's grandsire is Bond AToy4UC. What a pedigree this one has and it definitely shows. The main photo was taken on August 29, 2009....baby photos taken June 12, 2007. Finally got her AMHA papered, thanks to Joanne Ross and AMHA. Addy out did herself with her 2013 bay pinto filly, O Bay B. See O Bay B further down below. Addy had a tiny red splash colt from Jubilee April 15, 2015.

Dee Dee gave me a stunning filly this year. I couldn't be happier. This filly is a keeper! Amy is a bay without any markings. Since her sire is homozygous for black, Amy could be as well. I haven't tested her yet to see. Amy may be on my show string next year.

Last foal of 2013 and boy is she gorgeous. "Windy" has been lab tested for Red Factor, Cream and Dun. The results are E/E (homozygous for black); N/Cr (carries one cream gene); N/N (inconsistent for the Dun gene). Windy's bluish eyes have now changed to amber. Windy is a smokey black by definition.

7th foal of 2013 and all I can say is wow. "Bay B" is a Bond AToy4UC great granddaughter and a Sheep Meadow Whiz granddaughter. Bay B is out of my favorite mare and favorite stallion. She's a keeper! Lower pictures were taken at 1 day old, while she was still trying to figure out her long legs :) Main picture was taken as a yearling at the Spanaway show. Bay B is bred to Spider for a late April 2017 foal.

Giselle finally gave me a gorgeous filly this year. Couldn't decide if she was a silver, silver roan or blue roan, so had her DNA tested. The results came back EE (homozygous for black), nn (negative for silver) and Rn/n (heterozygous for roan). The bottom 2 pictures above were taken when she was just 1 hour old. This filly is a keeper! Even though she isn't technically silver afterall, her name has stuck so will remain Silver Lining. What a pleasant surprise. "Sylvie" should mature around 32".

1st foal of 2013 and how colorful. "Missy" is a blue roan appaloosa that's super refined and straight. Already has lots of white across her hips and will only get more colorful as she matures. No obvious black spots in her coat yet but I'm sure she'll get some eventually. Lots of eye and nose mottling as a yearling. Missy is a very welcome addition to my herd of broodmares.

"Amber" is an unusual bay dun. Her dam, LT, is now sold so I'll retain this filly to keep the bloodlines in my herd. DNA color results are back! Amber is Aa (agouti) nn (no cream) Dd (Dun), which means she is a bay or brown dun. She didn't get her mom's cream or tobiano gene but what a beauty.

Libby is a new mare I added to my herd in early 2014. She has been DNA tested and is homozygous for black and carries one agouti gene. That makes Libby a black bay pinto. Libby is out of Columbia Top Flight, making her a granddaughter of National Champion Liberty winner Hidden Meadows Mighty Titan. Gorgeous mare and the above picture doesn't do her justice. Libby is bred to Lil Whiz for an early March 2017 foal.
