to Firefly Farm.  We breed sporthorses for all disciplines, but most often for dressage.  Our goal is not to breed just one breed, but to breed the horses that individuals will select to be his or her partner for their personal riding journey, be it professional or serious amateur, or even if it is to find a partner to work with them for a lifetime of riding in any discipline.  Over our twenty-five years, we have bred Trakehners, Hanoverians, Oldenburgs, and more.  Today we breed mostly Hanoverians.  In 2011, we had our first Andalusian filly. In 2012, we had two Hanoverian foals, one colt and one filly. 

Leonardo FF Arrives in April, 2012!

This is a picture of Leonardo FF.  Leonardo is the happy result of breeding Elite Mare Dragonfly to Elite Stallion Liberty Gold, sire of Liberty Firestorm, out of Hera Olympia and Lunar Wind, out of Elite Mare Darn Lucky.

Leonardo is going to be a big, big guy, and we are going to geld him so that he will be a wonderful riding horse for somebody, and we are not set up to handle a stallion.  This baby will be for sale, and this is a breeding that we hope to repeat this year!

Leonardo is a wonderful, floating mover, and has a wonderful termperament.  He is smart, and people oriented,  He enjoys being handled, and we were able to clip him for inspection without even tying him!

Escanaba FF Arrives in May, 2012!

After three years of trying, Escanaba FF finally is here, a filly with a big star and two hind socks.  She has awesome presence, and elegant floating movement!  She is breathtaking, and very friendly!  She has been well worth waiting for!  This filly will be wonderful!

Escanaba, or "Diva", as we call her, is the daughter if Escudo II, an exceptionally athletic and intelligent stallion.  While he is a part of the Jumper Breeding program, he is a athletic stallion who can also produce dressage horses, as we have seen at inspections each year.  We expect Diva to be a good sized mare, at least 16.2 or bigger.

Apostrophy Leaves for a New Home!

In addition to a new home, Trophy will have a new job next year being a broodmare!!  Apostrophy will be bred to the KPWN stallion Noteworthy, who stands in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  Noteworthy is currently in the ISR/NA Oldenburg Studbooks.  While she is a Trakehner, Trophy will be bred and inspected and go into the Oldenburg Studbook, and along with Trophy, her new owner, Shannon Stinchcomb will breed one of her Arabian mares to Noteworthy as well.
