OUR "APPY" PROGRAM

Quite a while ago, we decided to try and improve the "small" appaloosa" horses. We bought several jet black mares and bred them to our frost appy stallion REBEL. He gave us lovely black fillies with nice straight legs, good even teeth, and gentle lovely dispositions but no color except jet black. However, they are half appy and better girls than their dams. In addition, we also purchased several young fillies, raised them to maturity and bred them in 2007 to a loud leopard appy stallion SMOKER. The first results on the ground in 2008 were quite exciting - SPARKLE and JACK - both appys. In 2009, SMOKER gave us CANDY, an appy, and three blacks CINDER ELLA, MISSY and MR COOL. The other black fillies we had from REBEL are older now and we bred them in 2011 to our new stallion addition - SPOTTED ILLUSION who we acquired in April 09. We also bred JACK 2010 and got the lovely pintaloosa filly MI AMORE this spring. In 2011, ILLUSION produced his first 2 foals for us, two appy colts ROCKSTAR out of DIVA (appropriate name) and HANDSOME out of FRECKLES. Since than, he has sired quite a nice crop of foals and has become a really nice boy. The experiment is in full swing and getting quite exciting. Here are some of the major players.

Many of our younger horses not sired by DICK & EDDY were sired by:

REFERENCE SIRES
 
REBEL,almost totally black when we bought him, colored after 3 years. He brought us desireable genes from TOYHORSE DOMINO, TOYHORSE ERMINETOES and the little known, but beautiful TSCHINOUK WARRIOR. All his boys foaled as appys, and all his girls are blacks. The mares we have kept are ALBERTA, OPHELIA and ESMERALDA.
 
IMPRINTS U BET I GOT SPOTS (SMOKER) brought us genes from DON RICARDO of KILVERSTONE,and MENELEK times 3 by way of LUCKY FOUR SPOTS U BET. SMOKER has sired SPARKLE, JACK, and YDNAR for us. We will always be extremely grateful to IMPRINT for allowing us to breed to him for some excellent foals.

 

At this time, SHAREN and WILL would like to thank HEIDI & BRIAN PETRAR of Up Sheeps Creek, Saskatoon, Sask; DAVINA MUNTEANU & HUBBY, Mini Lane Prairie Miniature Horses, Melville Sask.; BONNIE & JOHN HEATHERINGTON, Wander West Miniatures, Rocky Mountain House, AB; and a few unnamed, for giving our darling horses good homes on short notice. This is a very trying time for us as we would never sell all our breeding stock if we had a choice. Nuff said.
