    Thank you, quite proud to say I've done 98% of the training on both my mares with a couple dozen lessons over the years :) maybe 6 jumping lessons back in '08 so to get a compliment on my equitation over fences is awesome, thank you!

    I agree I prefer Justus' conformation better but I really like the temperaments and structure to Dove's foals, good bone and nice legs on my pony and that wasn't from the sire...

    Thanks again, much appreciate the critiques. I think Dove has more of a sharkfin TB type wither moreso than a sway back, different curve all the way down the spine with a sway back. All good points though, thanks!

    I tend to agree. That big ol' cresty mustang neck she has tends to optically make the withers look smaller than they actually are, while in reality they are quite prominent and steep. Nice mare IMO...

    Dove is one of those mares that consistantly seems to produce even better then she is. Granted she's only had 3 foals, but by different sires and all were good using horses - one of her older colts is used for roping.

    I'm pushing Shay-la to breed her with vet approval. Mostly because Shay-la is a phenomonal colt starter and has gotten rave reviews from both our extremely well known and respected farrier and vet on what lovely well trained animals she turns out. Even if the foal was born less then perfect, she would keep it as long as it took to turn it into a well mannered, well behaved and trusted trail or beginner horse as she has done with every last foal she's produced - every single one of them going on to be good stout working horses.

    Typically I would be against such a breeding, but the results and dedication speak for themselves. Showing means nothing to Shay-la, producing well behaved and productive members of equine society does. She also plans ln breeding to a well accoplished barrel racing champion and proucer of winning barrel racing get.

    DOVE AND ACE BABY FOR 2014!!!!
