I LOVE seeing what foals everyone has coming for 2010 ... Its so much fun to "count the sleeps" until the new babies arrive! :D

Who has foals coming in 2010? When? Can you post pictures of Mom and Dad for all of us to see?

I have several due that I am SO excited about ... :)

First up is Pearlescent (16.2hh perlino TB mare) bred to Guaranteed Gold (16.1hh cremello TB stallion) for a 100% guaranteed double dilute foal ...

This foal has already been sold in utero to Germany and is due in April ...
Here is Pearl with her April 2009 perlino filly at a week old:



and here is Guaranteed Gold:



Next up is Faux Finish - daughter of Guaranteed Gold / Puchi Trap, 16.3-17hh - buckskin & white sabino TB mare - shown here as a 2 year old:



and then as a 4 year old:



She has been bred to the 16.1hh black sabino Oldenburg stallion - Redwine:



I am looking forward to this foal SO much!!! :D

And last but certainly not least is my Puchi Trap mare, due in May, 16.1hh, re-bred back to Guaranteed Gold once again:



And a recent picture of GG taken a month ago that I just love!!! :D


And thats it for me!!!

I am now dreaming about my 2010 breedings and what I am expecting in 2011! :lol:

Wow, that faux finish baby is going to be outstanding hunter! Both sire and dam are stunning horses, I can't wait to see the result. Has faux finish done an showing? She looks like a perfect hunter!

Thanks sillybunny ... :)

Pearl doesnt get ridden. She is "just" a broodmare ... :wink:

Faux Finish was being ridden up til about 5-6 months ago. Whether I will start riding her again - who knows. At this time, she will probably be re-bred in 2010 unless we opt to go back to a performance career for her instead

Puchi Trap was a good race horse, I did ride her quite a bit, showed her a little, started jumping her and then decided to breed her and based on what nice babies she is producing, have opted continuing to breed her

Out of other mares, Kyrie D' Triompe showed in the hunter/jumper ring last year and Iris hasnt been ridden at all, so kind of a mixed bag all the way around ...

And thanks 1/3/17 ... :)

Faux Finish did do some limited showing. I just wish I had the funds to continue on with her show career ... but she also has terrific value to me as a broodmare!

She won a lot under saddle and over fences. Here are a few more pictures of her ... :)



and:



and at her very first show over fences where we were SO happy she didnt take exception to the corn stalks, ghosts, goblins and pumpkins decorating all of the jumps!:

*drooooooools* Dear god, I think I may have to squirrel away some money to steal Faux Finish's foal. Honestly, what could be absolutely better then having such a beautifully amazing color on your horse AND have her be a conformational dreamboat and talented show pony to boot? I mean, that mare has EVERYTHING. And the sire? Dear god, I don't know if I can take the suspense! :lol: It's not often I fall that hard for a horse, but Faux Finish is in the top five all time favorite horses I've ever laid my eyes on! (Did I mention I was an absolute tool of a sucker for buckskin pintos? It's my all time favorite combination of color and pattern, I don't care of it's tobiano or an overo pattern, it's just gorgeous!)

*breathes*

Anyway, no foals coming for 2010, but we may be planning something up our sleeves for the 2010 breeding season. Not sure yet *eyes gleam* You'll have to wait and see!

When are you going to spill the beans MM as to what you have planned for 2010?! :wink: Enquiring minds want to know ...8)

As much as I adore Faux Finish, I honestly think the Nightlight filly (her full sibling from 2008) is even nicer. She's a smoky black & white. Here are a few pictures of her:



and:



Those were taken at 10 months of age and this one was taken at 13 months of age ...



This is the full sibling from 2007 - the palomino & white colt - Remember My Name taken at 18 months old:



and:



and at 24 months old:



And this filly - Blonde In A Motel - is the 2009 full sister to all of the above, and this picture was taken at 5 months of age:



I adored this colt - Stonewashed:



he was the 2006 full sibling ... He met with an awful accident several months after arriving at his new home and died instantly ... :-(

And last but not least is Chai Latte - the full sister from 2005 - shown at 5 days old:



and then as a 3 year old:



This combination between Guaranteed Gold and Puchi Trap throws the most consistency that I have ever seen, foal after foal after foal ... they are all like the same peas in the same pod. They truly are. Even Blondie having no markings at all has that same beautifully sculpted head and that same "look" about her

I count my blessings every time Puchi Trap gets in foal once agan and every time she safely delivers another beautiful foal for me ...

So MM - is FF still your favorite now after seeing the rest of them?! :wink:

Oh wow! Beautiful horses!! I don't have any plans for babies this year, but there are some studs I am looking at for a 2011 breeding. It's nothing definitive at this point, but depending on how this next year goes....:) Here are a couple of the studs I'm looking at, but I'm really excited about Iceman! I can't wait to see what your babies com out as!! Make sure to keep us posted! What time about are they due for?

I thought I recognized "The Iceman's" name! I saw a picture of him awhile ago and thought he was just the most exotic colt going!

How exciting if you are thinking of breeding to him! You must keep us posted! :)

My 2010 foals are due in April (2) and May(1). I can hardly wait! :D

Hahaha, you'll just have to wait and see! Nothing as exciting as your breedings I'm afraid, but we may have a youngster running around in the next year and a half if things go well!

I'm sorry, but Faux Finish is definately still my favorite! Her siblings are breathtaking, I really love them all, but she just has a presence about her that screams to me. As I said, being my absolute favorite combination of color + pattern doesn't hurt either! :lol:

Definately a winning combination regardless, I'm coming to you when I make the big move to buy my Thoroughbred! No jack knifed wither ribby racehorse for me! :wink: LOL

Wow, True colors! To be perfectly honest, I REALLY don't like double dillutes, and have problems with paints and single dillutes being brought into the WB/TB world. I have seen some decent ones, but yours are the first that I would actually LOVE to own and would be more than happy to take into a hunter ring. They are just gorgeous, high quality animals with color added almost as a afterthough. I love that you breed for quality over color and I cannot wait to see what you produce in future years.

Wow

Thank you SO much 1/3/17. I am honestly so flattered by your comments. :) I just hope that we can continue to produce youngsters that everyone respects for their abilities, conformation and type and that the colour and neat markings are just a nice added bonus ...:)

Okay MM - we'll wait until you are ready to make your announcement! Let us know on here first though - okay?! :wink:

I have always wanted a baby by Puchi Trap! I have been looking for several years and have always wanted to bring 'impulsion' back into the Paint Show world as I show in APHA shows, and have frequented your pages SEVERAL times. What gorgeous gorgeous horses. I have a stud colt now and when I am ready to start my broodmare band I believe I will definitely be trying to nab one of her babies!! Gorgeous horses, I absolutely love them.

(go figure. I went to try to buy a young APHA Hunter colt and ended up with a black Friesian sporthorse colt with the cremello gene. Seems I can't get away from the color even if I try! ;) )

We are expecting six foals sired by Rowdy And Ready, our Appaloosa stallion. Four born on-farm (two are my mares, two are visiting mares) and two will be born about 30 miles away, as I sold two Thoroughbred mares this fall who are in-foal for April and May.

Rowdy And Ready (1998 Appaloosa stallion, 16+ hands)--


My Kinda September (Appaloosa) is due in late March,


Secret Stripes (TB) is due in April, Palacios Summer (TB) is due in May, Lads Colormebad (Appaloosa) is due in May,
Upon a Star (Appaloosa) is due in Late May,




and Blue Do Duster (Appaloosa) is due in June.

The pictured mares are my mares-- Rowdy And Ready has sired reserve World Champions and ROM earners, and My Kinda September (Katie) is a National Champion producer and daughter of hall of fame stallion The Executive, and Upon A Star (Sugar) is a futurity winning producer, stands 16.2 hands and is a super moving daughter of Star J who was a Champion in both Halter and Performance---- but these will be the first foals from Rowdy and these mares, so it is perhaps a more than normallly exciting wait till spring :D.

I most definitly will keep you updated! I was shocked when I found out such an awsome horse was only a few hours away from me!! I am not entirely certain on anything at this point, and I may not even breed him to deja if I do do it. I have been playing with the idea of leasing a broodmare because I'm not sure about how cohesive his body type would be with my mares'......not sure though! It's nice to know when the babies are comeing. I bought my mare preggers and the old owners were flakes so they didn't even know what month she'd foal out. They only know that she was bred in her foal heat from her last foal(which they couldn't remember when she was born, only approximates...:?) Make sure to post pics of the babies!!
macabremikolaj: when do we get to hear the awsome suprise? Suprises are torture... :)

this is the only "confo shot" that I could find oddly....
