Leonardo FF Arrives in April, 2012!
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!
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!
EM Dragonfly Bred to Liberty Gold in 2013
Dragonfly, whose last foal was a colt by Liberty Gold, Leonardo FF, will be bred to Hilton Farm's Liberty Gold once again in 2013! We could not be more pleased with Leonardo FF, and would be happy to get another foal half as nice as he is. We would be very excited to get a filly by that cross, as nice as Liberty Song, Dragonfly's first Liberty Gold foal, a filly. This has proven to be a wonderful cross with the Dragon!
Darn Lucky Bred to Rubignon in 2013
Hera Olympia Bred to Don de Marco in 2013!
Ramsi Comes To Firefly Farm,Breeding to Wild Dance!
Ramsi will be bred to Rainbow Equus Meadow's Wild Dance, a brilliant chestnut dressage stallion who also had jumping ability. To be tantalized, you can look up his bloodlines on his website, and he will have a slew of wonderful foals this year. One more wonderful stallion to arrive in California this year!!!!
Windstorm To Stay Under Saddle!!
The lovely Hanoverian mare Windstorm had hoped to get back to breeding and concentrate less about this under saddle business, but her great hopes have been dashed when Darn Lucky, her ace in the hole, went ahead and got in foal on her own. Lucky has spent two years of futile efforts, but, finally figured out that in foal means a lot less work, for a lot less hassles. Under the assistance of trainers Marie Milliman and Karin Bielefeld, Deb Reda has decided that she will likely show her this year, as opposed to breeding her back. Poor Windstorm, work, work, work.
