A successful breeding operation is not possible without Mare Power. We'd like to introduce you to the excellent ladies we have chosen to pull double duty around the ranch as working moms. While we have currently cut back on the breeding end of things - due to the kids really wanting to get showing and not having enough time for everything, we've kept the best back.
"Holly" is a excellent young mare that has been a great addition to our breeding program! Her sire is World Champion, Hollywood Art, and her dam is a successful all-around rail horse, Jimini's Fancy, whom is a ROM earner and multiple Canadian National Champion producer. "Holly" is a full sister to Canadian National Champion, CR Hollywood Kisses and also to Reserve Canadian National Champion, CR Hollywood Mercedes. Holly is a valueable addition to our broodmare band with her proven lines, conformation, natural ability - and beautiful loud coloring! To date, we have only gotten her out in the show ring once, but watch for her in the future as a possible youth (both leadline and walk/trot mount) for our kiddos. Holly is also already proving herself as a producer with two show-stopping colts by Straws Mighty Magnum. Gold Label has been busy racking up points since he was a weanling - and we expect "Wyatt" to follow in his big brother's hoofprints - as soon as we get him out there!
Holly has been genetically tested for the following:
PSSM1: N/N - GBED: N/N - HERDA: N/N - MH: N/N
1.0 points Youth Most Colorful at Halter
Leadline horse - 2 - 2nds of 5 so far!

"Peaches" may be listed last on our Mare page, but that is just by chance. Peaches has been with us the longest of the mares - 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 an injury sustained while we lived in Alaska. She is now mostly known for giving pony rides - but at nearly 16 hands isn't much of a 'pony'! Peaches is currently on lease to NDSU as a loaner horse for the winter. We hope when she returns this spring to return her to the show ring as a youth horse.PSSM1: N/N - GBED: N/N - HERDA: N/N - MH: N/N
