"Art Dancer" is a pretty and elegant black and white pinto mare by the fabulous sire - Art Deco, out of a TB mare tracing back to Secretariat. She is 14 years old in 2011 and stands just under 15.3hh in height.
A pasture accident as a baby left her with two fused vertebrae in her neck and it was felt by her owner and breeder (a veterinarian) that this injury affected her growth rate. With 2 foals at 16.2hh at 3 and 4 years of age, this seems to be a correct statement as this lovely mare throws babies that are much taller than she is on a consistent basis.
She scored a 105 at her Old NA inspection and her 2 foals were awarded Premium status.
Dancer is completely rideable and very quiet and laid back but due to her injury she cannot flex fully at the poll so a hack and pleasure home would be most suitable for her, where she is allowed to go in a long and low frame which is the most comfortable for her. She is a fabulous producing broodmare and truly is best suited to a breeding home where she may occassionally go on pleasure hacks only. She is completely sound with no vices and is a very easy and uncomplicated mare to deal with.
She is being offered for sale open, with a breeding included to either Guaranteed Gold - my 16.1hh cremello TB stallon for a 100% guarantee of a single dilute baby with the 50% chance of tobiano markings on the foal:
