New photos of my "specialty" breeding of the year - "PEACHES" !!

Excuse the "Farmer Judy" look (!), but I like to take time this part of the year to bring each foal up from the field individually for some one on one time. I am enjoying working with Peaches, my Lusitano - Andalusian - Kiger Mustang filly. Bright, athletic, a little complicated - but very fancy, don't you think?? Look how she can use those hind legs.

A nice note from Brandenburg ....

Dear Judy ,
We are so proud that you are so successful with the offsprings of Quaterback. The young mare "Heide von Brandenburg" from Quaterback out of Hedda is a very nice horse. Qredit is a good stallion and we are proud that he is licenced for breeding of the International Sporthorse Association. (Here is a photo of Qredit from Hilltop Farm at his inspection)

2010 is the year for Quaterbacks offsprings. On the German Foal Championships in Lienen were the best colt and filly progeny of Quaterback. On the Southern German Elite Sale in Nördlingen Quaterbacks offspring "Quattrcento" was the most expensive Dressage Foal which was sold for 20.000 € to Paul Schockemöhle. In Vehta on the Elite Foal Sale was the most expensive foal also an offspring of Quaterback: Quateron was sold for 55.000 € to a Spanish Dressage Stable.

Best regards
Stiftung Brandenburgisches Haupt- und Landgestüt

There is absolutely no doubt that Quaterback is proving to be a special "stamping stallion". His first crop are now coming under saddle, so far with excellent comments. We look forward to another breeding season with him.

After an afternoon run!

Well, the babies are weaned, and getting together in the herd under the guidance of my old Kiger mare , Spirit. Cookie snapped this trip to the watering trough after a big run.

Peaches N Cream !

This is our "specialty breeding" of the year. Peaches is by the Lusitano stallion, Veneno Imperial, and out of my Andalusian (Gaucho III ) x Kiger mare, Cherokee Diamond Isabel. I call it buttermilk dun (like Dale Evan's horse - for those of you who remember!) She is offered for sale, since "she" was supposed to be a "he" for me!
