I know several of us added a few new additions to our herds...

We made three purchases this year

First was Carriage Hills Copper, a silver bay roan AMHA/AMHR mare, sired by Little Kings Cisco Supreme (son of Komokos Little King Supreme and out of a daughter of Fishers Master Mickey) and is out of Little Kings Miss Mouse



At the same time I also purchased the above mare's current year AMHA/AMHR colt, sired by Little Kings Buckeroo Merlin, black son of Boones Little Buckeroo.. He's now registered as LCA's More Bang For Your Buck




And our most recent of course is our new herd sire, Oak Parks Oh Im Awesome, AMHA/AMHR stallion, sired by YP Branch Destinys Doctrine (sired by Alvadar's Double Destiny!) and out of Reh's Oh Oh (Bond Rollback daughter)

Neat post! Everyone's new horses are beautiful!


We've added 4 new horses this year.

Wauk-A-Way Kansas Twister (Twister), a black visual frame overo ASPC/AMHR gelding. He is my over show gelding.



Country Star Buddy Jewel (Buddy), a black visual frame overo ASPC/AMHR stallion. He is my new herd sire and over show stallion. Buddy is a son of the above gelding, Twister.



SCF Diddley Squat (Lilly), a black tovero ASPC/AMHR filly with blue eyes. She will be one of my jr show mares. If she ends up testing negative for LWO, she will also be one of Buddy's future mares.



SHF Uno's Golden Phoenix (Phoenix), a palomino AMHR filly. She is 50% Arenosa. Phoenix will be one of my jr show mares as well. She will also be one of Buddy's future mares.

I brought 5 home this year.

The first girl was actually born here. Last Chance Lil Jubilee 4 Me was sold as a yearling, and when the buyer was selling out, I bought her back, along with her daughter Evangeline. Jubilee is a 6 year old silver bay (homozygous) pinto mare.



Evangeline was a silver buckskin (homozygous) pinto yearling. I sold Evangeline shortly after getting her home here.



Next, I bought a BTU son, I Am BT Waterford Too. The owner contacted me to see if I might be interested as she was deperate to sell for personal reasons, so I said yes.



Not long after I made that purchase, another BTU son came up for sale....one that was smaller, and one that I liked much more, so I bought him. MLF Buckeroos Cerulean Supreme is the one I'll be keeping as my breeding stallion instead of Waterford.




Finally, even though I actually paid the money out last year, this summer I picked up my replacement filly, Triple K Destinys Golden Essence, a palomino weanling filly.

Well, added more this year than I have in a long time and THEY ARE ALL BOYS!!!!

Sam,,,,,,,son of Tiny Tymes For Sure Man, 30 inch yearling, and has been gelded! He is already a Star in our town, doing promotions at several different locations. He does awesome and I just grin when I hear customers, the public talking,,,,,,,,there's a horse in the store.



Phantom,,,,,,,weanling, also a gelding,,,,,,,,did I mention I like my geldings???
Was shown at Nationals and came away with a Reserve placing. This little guy has just about the coolest attitude, he is Fonzie in a horse body.
And by far is the smartest little colt you will ever meet.



Both of the above came from Getitias at Buckeye WCF in Ohio and I will never be able to thank her enough for allowing me to bring these two home. They make me smile each and every day,,,,,,not so bad to look at either.

Zipit is a kick butt little stallion and he will tell you he is. Yet when no girls are looking, all he wants is to be loved on. He has become the sweetest guy and has claimed Phantom as his best buddy. Hope to breed him to a few girls beginning of 09.

Cyndi has entrusted me with this special guy and just can't say thank you enough.



Thanks for allowing me to share my new guys,,,,,maybe next year it will be girls.

We had 3 new, very exciting for us, additions this year. First is our new herdsire: Marystowns Explosive Echo who is sired by Buck Echo and out of a Boone's Little Andy daughter.




We also added the sweetest, most wonderful mare: Huffman's Lite my Fire, sired by Little Kings Santana Supreme and also out of a Boones Little Andy daughter.
She is pictured here with her 08 colt Toys Sensational Iceman, our 3rd addition. Iceman is sired by Stiehls Sensational Alladdin.

We couldn't be happier!!!

We had 4 new additions this year:

Erica's Big City Live Wire: 2007 AMHA/AMHR Silver Bay Gelding - a Big City son out of Mountain Meadows Dancing in Diamonds. We sat on him this year to let him grow up a little, he will be our Junior under gelding in 2009!

We don't have any recent pictures of him, here are some pics of him as a weanling courtesy of Erica:





TYF Grey Cloud Out Loud (aka Westwind Farms Grey Cloud Out Loud) AMHA/AMHR 2003 Dapple Grey Gelding sired by Fallen Ash Farms Scout Out Loud and out of Graceland's Lil Payday. Cloudy is an AMHA World Champion Halter horse and received Grand Champion Sr. Gelding at his very first AMHR show, exactly one week after he joined us.

Our under Sr. Gelding for 2009.







J&S Estates Super Sonic - ASPC/AMHR Colt out of D&S Pocket Watch and Michigan's Cookie Chip.

He is our future herd sire! Gizmo will never see 34" and we plan to hardship him into AMHA in 2012.

We are pretty excited about this little guy! On our show string for 2009.







And last but CERTAINLY not least,

Lil Darlings Ciscos Balls To Wall - 2002 AMHR Black Gelding sired by Lil Darlings Cisco Kid HOF.

Wally was 2X National Grand Champion Pleasure Driving 30 & Under. Jeanne McClanahan

was so kind as to allow us to purchase him for our 7 year old son. Wally is the perfect first driving

horse for Tyler - (and me too!), giving Ty the confidence to drive all by himself. He is just the coolest little guy!

Tyler will be driving Wally again in 2009.

Congrats on all your new ones! Nice!!

I'm SO CLOSE! I have not bought a new mini this year, for the first time in 15 years! I have bought one or more every year. Can I finish out the year without buying one? Oooohhh!!!! Wish me luck! My will power is weak!

WOW everyone has such BEAUTIFUL new horses!

Candice - I especially love that mare you got. I have a super soft spot for buckskin pintos.
And even more so for... is that I see... a blue eye!?! Absolutely love her.

Speaking of my blue eye obsession, this is my new 2008 addition: CCMF Frankie Blue Eyes.

He's my new blue eyed pintaloosa stallion. He's a son of LTD's Color Broker (full brother to Magic Man) and out of a buckskin appaloosa mare. He's got the most amazing personality I've ever seen in a horse. Next year we'll start breeding him to my mares for some colorful lookin foals!

I got 2 new horses in 2008


In June, I got Fantasy Corrals Secret Treasure from Jill(Whinny 4 Me Farm). She's Buckeroo and Egytian King bred. She came here with the intention of being my Over driving horse in 2009, since I retired my current Over driving horse after this show season. She's quite smart and picking up on things easily and will be ready to hook very soon






My other 2008 purchase was in late August. I had an open stall(which is a crime
) and decided that I had enough mares to show, but wanted either an Under gelding or stallion. I came across this guy and knew he'd fit in perfect. His name is Owsley Fork Secret Rendezvous. Whether or not he shows as a yearling gelding or colt next year is in his hands right now




My stalls are full and thats it for me for awhile!
