The Mares

 

While the ladies are mostly around to tote the kiddos around (and they do an awesome job at that!), there is one here for producing babies!

Peaches has been with us the longest of the mares and earned the top spot on the Mare Page - Kristine purchased her back in early 2000 as a long yearling and has never had a thought of her leaving since!  Peaches really doesn't need an introduction.  She is a full sister to Straws Mighty Magnum and every bit as precious to us as Magnum is.  Peaches was shown lightly as a 2-4 year old in open shows where she was always in the ribbons in halter, showmanship, western pleasure, hunter under saddle and games - although her strength is pleasure events!  She attended one ApHC show where she and Kristine picked up a couple points.  Her show career was then sidelined with a serious injury sustained while we lived in Alaska.  She was pretty much retired until 2015 when we pulled her out of pasture to be Adam's walk/trot mount and Katy's leadline mount!  While she doesn't move very nicely anymore due to her old, old injury, she is safe, steady, and the kids love her!  She has been Adam's primary walk/trot horse.

Kyloe Miss Fortune

Scoop Tallu (AQHA) x Dunny Scoop

4/25/94  |  Chestnut Blanket Mare  |  ApHC # 549291

"Berreta" came to us very graciously from Crystal Pitkin as a horse for Katy after Katy lost her beloved Princess in Sept. 2015.  While "Miss Bert" was enjoying retired life at Crystal's, I think she is really enjoying how much a little girl can spoil a horse!  She and Katy already think the world of one another - and Miss Bert knows where those sugar cubes come from!  Katy showed Miss Bert in leadline, halter and most colorful for most of the 2016 show season, and then added the whole slate of walk/trot clases in 2017.  2017 was Katy and Berreta's final year as a team as Miss Bert's old age is catching up with her.  She will now lead a much more leisurely life of plodding around with Kyle from time to time and sunning in the pasture. Maybe life at our house isn't such a tough retirement job!   Miss Bert was previously Crystal's youth horse.

Dial Alice
QAR Dial INXS x Marina Del Ray

5/11/96 |  Bay Roan Mare  |  ApHC # 580754

Adam fell in love with Alice back in 2014 when he borrowed her for a few months to ride.  When the opportunity came up for her to come live with us as a retirement home, he eagerly accepted.  She is a sweet, sweet mare that is getting quite spoiled.  She is an accomplished show horse and wonderful mom.  We're glad to have her here.  Adam and Alice did their first show Oct 2016, and he was grinning from ear to ear!  He was hoping to show her in 2017, but Alice had a bit of a surprise for everyone when she delivered a colt in early June.  Adam took that opportunity to breed for his Magnum baby as Alice's ringbone is getting too bad for her to be ridden.  His filly, Iris, arrived in early June - you can see her on the Prospects page.  We are hoping for another Magnum x Alice, but we will see what is in store due to her advancing age.  If not, she will retire to pasture.

My Pride Asset

Good Asset x My Pride

5/5/2004 |  Bay Appendix Mare  |  AQHA #X0643182

"Sadie" is a new addition for us...and an exciting one.  She is an appendix daughter of the great Good Asset (granddaughter of Zippos Mr Good Bar), and out of a Thoroughbred mare, My Pride.  She is a big, bay mare - standing at a rock-solid 15.3hh.  She has had 3 foals - including the well-accomplished multiple ApHC World Champion, Assets And Elbows.  We can't help but be excited for what she and Magnum will produce!!  She is AA/EE, so we'll have a 50/50 shot at Amber Champagne or bay foals.  Stay tuned!  We are hoping to breed her for an April 2019 Magnum baby!  I will get more pictures of her once it warms up and such.  My phone doesn't appreciate below zero temps!

Totally Conspicuous

1/7/94-11/2/2017 |  Chestnut Roan Mare  |  ApHC # 528664

"Sugar" came here for Magnum.  She gave us 2 beautiful daughters from Magnum before it was time to let her go in the fall of 2017.  Sadly, just 1 1/2 months later, we also said a tearful goodbye to her 2017 filly.  She's an own daughter of AQHA great Totally Impressed - making her a paternal sister to The Hunter, and out of Mighty Dialette a multiple National/World Champion mare.  Sugar did spend a bit of time in the show ring, and has produced some super nice babies.

Slash

2007 Pony Mare

I got in trouble for not having Princess on here, so I figured I had better not make the same mistake with Kyle's new pride and joy, "Slash".  Gail Smith had her standing around bored...and Kyle was in search of his first pony.  The plan to pass Princess down to him wasn't going to work, so "Slash" joined the family.  Mind you, she was named Sugarfoot - but a 3 year old boy didn't find that fitting and her name was quickly changed.  Kyle will have his work cut out for him, but he is so proud of his pony.  I can't wait for next summer when we are able to get working her a bit more!

 

 

 

In Memory of "Princess"

6/5/91-9/18/15

We only owned princess for just over 2 short years, but she and Katy had such a bond. Katy started riding Princess this spring and every time I or Abby & Adam would ride, she would ride Princess - and for the full hour we rode - just walking her around and around the rail or taking her over trail obstacles. When Katy found out she could be a Cloverbud in 4-H for 2015-2016, she immediately started working with Princess for SMS for our fair (July 2016). They spent hours each day together - walking around the farm, Princess grazing or getting brushed...Katy would tell her stories non-stop. It was seldom you saw Princess without her mane and tail braided or with a spec of dirt on her. Katy even used some of her birthday money to buy Princess a brand new lime green halter and lead just 2 weeks ago. They both had a stubborn streak a mile wide, but I think it made their partnership even better. I can't tell you how many times I cursed at this pony - (both under my breath and outloud!), but what I wouldn't give to have her back for Katy right now. May you rest in peace "Princess" AKA BL Easy Street. You will be missed. 6/5/91-9/18/15
