You're quite welcome. I believe we need to support each other. There are too many negative people in our business and having people to count on is paramount to success.

I very much like Spirit Thyme; he's a very nice stallion. My grey also outproduces herself. She makes them big and typey, which explains why she so big for her gestation. Echo M daughters are known for that.

I suppose I should link their pedigrees which I had forgotten.

Really nice breeding on both of your girls and they both look just like their pedigrees say they should. I'm especially intrigued by the *Padron/Retador cross, that's really nice!

BUUUUT the old Spanish breeding on Empress is no slouch either! I love Russian/Polish/Spanish crosses, that just WORKS for me, both in looks and in the physical ability department.

I'm very fond of ST and he and Dreamlet produced a really cool colt, Renegade Spirit DCA. Dreamlet fancied up ST's straight profile, they both gave excellent conformation and Rennie got ST's ultra laid back personality. If he got much more laid back I'd have had to register him as a QH! LOL!

Here's Rennie:


He ran out of patience for clipping just before I could finish his face, but I think you can see pretty well.

They get around 13'2 or 3', you can use them for anything, I use mine for trails mostly, and breeding. They are really fun to ride. I have one young stud that has been started on cows. They are great family horses very friendly and easy to handle and train. They have no natural predators so they aren't spooky they don't have the pray response to things having been isolated since the 900's. They are considered the only purebred horse there is because of the isolation. Once they or any tack leave Iceland they can't go back. They have the smoothest gait of all the gaited horses, they are 2 1/2 times stronger than the average horse, they live to be in their thirties, they have no equine diseases in Iceland, and I haven't heard of any genetic problems with them. They are very hardy and easy keepers. They have personality plus. Don't let the size full you they can carry a 250 lb person all day without a problem, they are great cart horses they love to pull. They are good jumpers, I had one young stallion that could clear a 5 foot fence at a stand still, he would just hop over like a deer. The bad thing about them is they are hard on fences, they walk through wire fences like nothing tough hides like a cow, electric fences have not effect on them. You can't ride them until 4 they are slow to mature because of the muscling and bone structure. They are mouthy they don't bite but get you with their lips. My opinion is they are great horses I don't have to worry about my grandkids around them even the studs, they love the kids, I can put all 3 of them on Agi, the stud in the picture, and he go really slow with them, no I don't let them ride him alone I lead him, they aren't strong enough to turn his head he has a 3 foot thick neck, he direct reins and leg pressure with 3 sets of legs doesn't work.
Here are pics of another mare Vina and my other stud Rex.

My mare use to have a bum like Spices... now it is is dwindling down. Wish I had a picture of what it use to be. Going by my estimated day she was bred... because I have no clue! Grr... I've had this day picked since I got her, so I'm just gonna shut up and go with it. She is 294 days pregnant, being "due" February 16th... OH MY GOD. Just did all these calculations. xD That is a day before my birthday. O: I want a baby foal for my birthday... Lmao.

Onward to pictures..
