My new mare ...

I know, I know ... its nothing short of sacrilege to post something like this without pictures, but I picked up my new mare on Monday, just got her mane pulled last night and want to give her a bubble bath today before I take any pictures of her ...

But here is American Iris, by Red White N Blaze out of Nordic Policy, shown as a weanling filly:



I am really thrilled I was able to get this lovely mare. She will be a very interesting addition to my breeding program and should produce some pretty funky and wild markings on her foals ...

She is super sweet and a beautiful mover as well. She'll serve as an "auntie" to my weaned foals this year and will get to learn the "motherhood" ropes with them as well ...

Hopefully I'll have updated pictures to post this afternoon of her ...

OKay - here you go. Pictures taken from this afternoon

She has a bay (or brown???) bum and back half, bay (or brown???) ears, she's black and white from the girth forward and her mane is black and white as well. The bottom half of her tail is white but I didnt manage to get that washed this time as this was her very first bath, no one was around to hold her and she wasnt overly impressed!

So - is she sabino / rabicano? Dominant White? Splash with the tail and the face markings? All of the above?

Your new girl is certainly exotically colored. I can say that I don't like her as much as most of your other horses. Her front and rear ends don't seem to match. I don't wish to offer a critique that you're not requesting so I'll just say that I like your other horses better.

When do you expect to breed her? How old is she? Is she a maiden? How much do you expect to ask for her foals?

Good luck with your new endeavor.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

She's definitely eye catching. Should throw some nice coloured foals.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Joshie - and NO offence taken either! Not in the slightest ...

She is a 2 year old and I think another 6-9 months will make a huge difference with her. We feed the Buckeye Feeds here and they have done wonders in the past and we hope they can do the same here ...

She is definitely lighter in her hind end which is typical for a lot of TB's, especially mares. But the good part is that the stallion I would breed her to - my Guaranteed Gold stallion - is known for putting big engines on them in behind, so he should correct that shortcoming very very well

I'd love to see a longer neck on her and a prettier head, but I also believe that GG can correct those shortcomings as well, especially in the "pretty head" department!

I honestly do not look at her and see a mare that will produce winning Conformation Hunters at the "A" level shows, but I do believe she will produce well conformed, useful, pretty moving foals with hopefully some neat markings to go along with them ...

All we can do is try and see what happens!

She'll get bred in the spring of 2010 if she is cycling and mature and has no issues at all. And yes - she is very much a maiden mare~!
