'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 has been left open for 2016.

"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.

"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. She was exposed to Lil Whiz but I'm pretty sure she's open for 2016.

Dee Dee is a new mare I added to my herd in August of 2014. She was bred to a cremello stallion and had a wonderful palomino pinto colt this April (sold). Dee Dee has been trained to drive but hasn't been driven in a while. She's easy to catch and is an "in your pocket" horse.

**Only for sale until January 1st, 2016. If not sold by January 1st, she will be retained until after she foals.One of my latest additions to my herd is this wonderful tovero mare. Queen is homozygous for tobiano as well. Her pedigree goes back to Double O Seven And Half Moto among others. Picture below is with her 2012 colt. Bred to Squeaker for a July 2014 foal. UPDATE - Queen had a tiny sorrel pinto filly July 4, 2014. Queen had her teeth floated July 29, 2014 so they are up-to-date. Queen is obviously pregnant to Jubi. Since Jubi is now sold, I'm retaining Queen until after she foals.

"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. Dream's dam, Shine, is confirmed again in foal to Buckeroo Zipit for 2016. I can't believe that I'm actually hoping it's a colt this time. 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.

Shenan was added to my herd in early 2015. Shenan is a great granddaughter of Sierra Dawn Unos Monarch. She has a super sweet personality and great conformation. I've exposed her to my champagne stallion for a 2016 foal. I don't believe Shenan is pregnant however. Since she's a taller mare, time will tell.

Krystal is a mare I purchased in 2011. I traveled to the Ramaker Farm in Rochester, MN to pick up her, Lil Whiz, Sky and High Expectations. With these horses, I'm hoping to get some high quality true roan horses added to my herd. It may be hard to tell but Krystal is a blue roan pinto. Pictures were taken August 5, 2012, when Krystal was 3 months pregnant. Krystal's lower price is due to the fact that she's foundered before and needs routine hoof trims. UPDATE - Krystal had a stunning blue roan colt from Squeaker. He arrived at 2:50am on March 29th. Krystal has been exposed to Squeaker and is definitely bred for 2016.

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 should be bred to Spider for an early 2016 foal. I'll be on pins and needles until the foal arrives. Sky has a little belly on her and will hopefully have no issues foaling a tiny perfect little foal.

High Expectations is one of two new mares I purchased in 2011. She's a very well put together mare and she'll add more black into my herd. Previous owner bred her to Lil Whiz, two years in a row, not realizing Lil Whiz was her sire. DNA tests prove he is her sire. High Expectations had a gorgeous blue roan filly in 2011 and a silver colt in 2012, pictured above left to right. High Expectations should be bred to Larry for a 2016 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. Addy has been exposed to Lil Whiz for a 2016 foal but it's too early to tell if she's pregnant for sure.

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. Windy should mature around 31 inches tall. She also looks more like a chocolate palomino now. I hope to get updated pictures next Summer.

Hot Flash has already given me 2 exceptional foals by Lil Whiz. Hot Flash is a granddaughter of Harts Tip Top Flash. I have yet to keep a foal from Hot Flash so Hope is a keeper. I shaved Hope recently and she appears to be a black tovero. I DNA tested her for black and agouti. The results were Ee and aa (one copy of black and no agouti). Hope is stunning and has two blue eyes.

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. Plans are to breed Bay B to Heartbreaker in 2016.

Shenanigans is a black pinto, as she does not carry a cream or silver gene. Shena is homozygous for Tobiano! She has one blue eye, four white stockings, a star, snip and spots within the white on her back. Shenanigans was hardshipped into AMHA in 2011. Shena is a granddaughter of my first ever miniature stallion, Showtyme Dark Secret, pictured above right. Dark Secret was a 36.75" tall gorgeous silver dapple pinto stallion, a son of Chief Lil Britches but unregistered. This mare is AWESOME and I'm so glad I didn't sell her as a baby. Shena gave me a stunning blue roan pinto colt, in June 2012, out of Lil Whiz. Shenanigans gave birth to another stunning black pinto colt in 2014. This time, she passed on a Splash gene as well. Two pictures above left are of her 2012 and 2014 colts. Shena is bred to Lil Whiz for 2016.

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 between 32-33".

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.

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 was exposed to Jubi for a 2016 foal. Should know soon if she's pregnant. I hope so, since Jubi has now been sold. Libby is out of Columbia Top Flight, making her a granddaughter of National Champion Liberty winner Hidden Meadows Mighty Titan.
