Canadian Horses, anybody? (lots of photos)

I found a couple of threads like this from quite a while ago, but I thought I'd start a new one.

Does anyone here have Canadians? If so, I would love to see your photos and hear your stories! We have three and they are such beautiful, wonderful horses. I have found them to be extremely intelligent, which can be a blessing and a curse as they will take control of the relationship if you give them even an inch to do so. They are SO full of personality and depth. They are inquisitive, brave, and very independent but willing to try what's asked if them as long as you ask nicely!

Our first mare is Du Coteau Dynamo Karen (barn name Chloe). She is 15.1 hands and 10 years old. She is really a lovely, lovely mare. Very sweet and kind and laid back.









Next is our four (turning five) year old purebred daughter of Chloe, Stonehaven Charbon Silhouette, or "Sadie." She is 15.2 and very lightly started under saddle. This summer will be her first year of doing any real work. She is quite a diva but is mellowing out nicely as she grows up.







And finally, we have the little guy -- Quinn, rising 2 year old Canadian/Hanoverian cross colt. This is him and mama Chloe when he was four months:





And Quinn at nearly two years old:


I would love to see your Canadians!

For those who haven't heard of this breed, here's a brief history: Upper Canada District - Canadian Horse Breeders - Breed History

I keep my horse at a barn where there are about 70 Canadian horses. We have Du Coteau Dynamo Perle who is a half sister of yours.
This is Perle:

This is all the broodmares lined up eating:

This is Tomahawk he's Perle's full brother and has an unusual blue eye:

Here is Lado Satan Paulo, he was champion stallion of Quebec in 1990:

And this is the other stallion Joly Vulcain Lucifer (thats Perle in front of him):

Fabie.ca is the site, there's pictures of many of the horses and pedigrees.

I can really see similarities between Perle and Chloe! Who is Perle's dam?
Paulo is quite the traditional-style Canadian. How tall is he?

When we visited Ferme De Berges in 2002, I am sure that we looked at another mare on that website, Du Coteau Dynamo Ko-Ko. We were literally surrounded by dozens of 2-year-olds to choose from. It was quite an overwhelming experience for inexperienced horse people. I heard that they sold off most of their stock a few years ago.

Both are beautiful stallions and great representatives of the breed!

I'm not sure what to make of Tomahawk. His head is quite different than his sister's and my mare's...must have got it from the dam?

I made a mistake, Tomahawk is Only Perle's half brother they share their dam Du Coteau Rebel Fancy. Tomahawks dad is Paulo.

Paulo is pretty tall he's 16.1 but Lucifer is only 15.1 in the height department, Lucifer is more traditional.

Here is an absolutely adorable filly named Mosarc Paygaze Whisper her mom is a very pretty light chestnut named
Du Coteau Dark Fox Dream. Whisper is one of the three "blonds" at the farm:

Masatisan, I have never seen a Canadian of that colour. How beautiful! I've seen the odd darker chestnut, and I really love the bays. Have you seen Cosyland Farm's stud, Natcho? He is a half-brother to our mare Sadie:



They share the same sire, Patenaude Wonder Charbon:

We have a really cool bay mare her name is Century Brigadier Gleam. She's a silver bay with the white legs and white/grey/ black tail and mane. Unfortunately I don't have the greatest pics of her...
Dream and Whisper are at the front and Gleam is hiding behind them
