The Prospects

The up and coming generation is so very important.  Each year we pick the best crosses and then dream for the next 11months about what the little bundles of joy will look like...and then we get to watch them grow in to the prospects we had planned them to be!  As the kids get older, they too participate and eagerly pick and argue a bit over who will get to show each youngster.

"Iris" is offically Adam's filly.  When he was offered to be the retirement home of Dial Alice, he was hoping to get a foal out of her and Magnum...well, specifically a COLT.  In fact for most of the pregnancy, he wouldn't even consider the fact that this foal could be a filly...then the big day came.  As the due date approached, he began dreading the fact that it may be a filly...and said, if it is, I don't want it! ..and we are going to name it Dialed The Wrong Number and try again!  Well, the big day arrived and as he anxiously watched the arrival of his new foal, I felt almost terrible when I had to announce it was indeed a filly.  Within minutes, he was able to come in and meet HER.  It maybe took 2 minutes of him petting her before he said, "Maybe a filly won't be so bad..." within a day, he figured there was nothing better than 'his girl'.  The name stuck, though - and I have to laugh every time I hear it.  We'll see if he gets another try for his colt...but either way, I think Iris is his to stay!  (and, for a 10 year old boy, I think he's done a great job naming her!!)  Watch for these two - out working cattle and in the show pen in the years to come!  At their very first show, Iris stood Grand Champion Mare - and with 2 shows under her belt as a weanling, has 5 National points!

Catching Fire

4/25/19  |  Amber Champange Characteristic Filly  |  ApHC # 687186

"Katniss" is by Magnum is out of our Appendix Mare, My Pride Asset, or "Sadie".  Sadie is an own daughter of Good Asset, and is proving herself in the breeding shed.  We are pretty excited about the future of this filly.  We were hoping to get her in the showpen as a weanling, but after an incident with mud and a fence, it didn't happen.  We are hoping for her yearling year, but time will tell!  Abby is already calling dibs!

"Sarah" is a full sister to Catching Fire, "Katniss".  They couldn't look much more alike!  We are excited for a bright future with Sarah.  She is a powerhouse of a filly, and has a bit of an attitude to match.  She can lope all day out on pasture and do lead change every stride if she's in the mood.  I think she will be a fun one! 


Dialed Up The Color

"Emma" was only planned by Alice, her momma.  One day in early July 2019, Alice decided to crawl through 2 electric, 4 wire fences (YES!  They were VERY hot), and get in by Magnum.  Alice was suppose to be retired...  :)  So, we have Miss Emma - and what a doll she is!  She is always the first up to you in pasture and will quietly stand for all of the love you want to give her.   She is probably the most chill baby we have ever had.  While she is really a late baby, we are excited to watch her grow up and see where things go.  I know she'll be in the show pen eventually.
