    I love the shetlands Moose Meadow Ponies is producing in Waldoboro Maine.

    Wondering if any forum members have ponies with Moose Meadow lines.

    We have one, Birchcrest Bentley, a three year old stallion. I owned his mother, Wa -Fulls

    Bennies Lady, and bred her to Moose Meadow Model Te. Model Te is a son of Knights To A Te, and a full brother to Moose Meadow Te-Bone owned by AG stables.

    Would love to see pictures!

    I had a Moose Meadow pony quite a few years ago, sold him to someone in MA. I don't have any ponies now. I live about 1/2 from them.

    Love that mare FMF!

    My colts mother was foundation bred, so hes

    not quite as fancy a stepper. He does have a

    nice trot though. Hes been longlined, hope to

    get him hooked this summer.

    I don't have anything from Moose Meadows but their herd is primarily stock from Jim Knight and I do have several ponies from Jim Knight's breeding.

    Cathy,

    My ASPR boy is half brother to yours. The big movement comes from Model Te [​IMG].. that boy has huge movement! I'd love to hitch Model Te up and take that boy for a spin! lol Mon te (my boy) does as well but he has a Hackney dam so that obviously helps with the huge movement! Your guys head looks very similar to Mon te

    These photo's of my boy were taken by the lashes just before i bought him. they are on their "sold" page.

    Holy cow - the War Whoop sabino really came out in that one Boinky! I see he's registered as a silver bay....he's really a bay sabino! No way with a black and a bay behind his daddy and a Hackney as his momma he can be any kind of silver. [​IMG] Sabino from the Royal Lee line (which is where War Whoop got his) does a great job of messing with mane and tail color. [​IMG]

    yeah i figured he wasn't truly a silver bay..although i could see where it would appear as such! I figured Hackneys do not have silver.. and dad (who i've personally seen) certainly didn't have it...so couldn't be silver and had to be sabino. Honestly this boy has the most homely head, although it does grow on you as more cute after you've been around him for a while.... but put a bridle with blinders on and i figure that hides a whole lot of flaws..LOL he has HUGE natural movement.

    I know they had several others there a few times i was down there that were very "roaned" out like him as well so it runs pretty rampant in that line apparently!

    I've never shod him and he breaks almost level (or so i've been told since i'm the one always driving him). His downfall though is that he has locking stiffles and one testicle! I talked to my vet and he said he'd do surgery on his stiffles for really cheap (especially for this area!) but the gelding would be like $1500.. so he'll probably just stay a non-breeding stallion..LOL He's mild mannered anyways for the most part so as long as he's not a bad boy i don't care if he's a stallion or not.

    I'm not quite certain where the locking stiffles have come from I haven't heard anyone else having a problem with them from the Moose Meadow lines.

    Oh yes! The vast majority of maximum white sabino Shetlands can be traced directly back to Royal Lee. Most Classics/Foundaitons are by way of Royal Red Viking or Royal Roan Pansy. The Moderns generally go to War Whoop - a Royal Lee grandson. My sabino Modern stallion in my avatar is a War Whoop grandson. [​IMG]

    Yikes! No, haven't heard of either of those problems on the Shetland side of the family. Some vets believe that the retained testicle comes from the dam side. Might be interesting to know more about his Hackney dam's family.

    And now you have me wanting to see a head shot of him with and without harness! LOL It can't be that homely! [​IMG]

    Ohh trust me..it IS quite homely.. i remember thinking YUCK when i first saw his head..lol From what i can see of it cathys stallions head is similar but nicer looking. His head looks more like model Te's and monte has a bit of the more gaunt hackney head going on. the rest of him is nice and his big movement was the draw for me. but the head is just so danged homely it's cute once it grows on you! lol i'll see if ic an get any photo's of him. I need to get some so i can send in his reg. papers anyhow.

    Hi Hillary,

    I didn't know you had bought Monty.

    Hard to believe he can move like that and

    have stiffle problems. I've never heard of any other

    Moose Meadow bred ponies with that problem. His head

    doesn't look homely in the pictures. I've never thought

    of my Ben's head as ugly, he has a beautiful big eye and

    little tippy ears.

    Love the sabino color! Moose Meadow has a pretty sabino

    To A Te daughter that I wouldn't mind having - Camamil Te.

    sorry i didn't mean to imply your boy had an ugly head. Infact i really like him. I e-mailed you I think when i you had him advertised. they do have some similar charcateristics (like i said before that looks like model Te's) ...monte's really IS homely though..LOL I've had him for over a year or so now. He was so wild when i got him it took months just to be able to do do much with him without him thinking i was going to eat him alive. once he came around he came around fast. I started driving him early last spring..just hooked him up and went with minimal other work..surprisingly enough he didn't kill me! lol he's fun to drive though. i'm thinking i might try showing him at Skowhegan this summer..we'll see though.

    We at Sharrway also have a Moose Meadow bred mare...she is by Moose Meadow Te-Bone, out of AG's Cameo. We bred her Pour the Wine our stallion from Cathy Harris. I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for her to foal...She is due in March...everyone think PINK please.

    Missy is a lovely mare with a good disposition, and easily worked with.

    Add Miss Print to your list of Moose Meadow horses.

    I thought I would jump into the conversation with my Moose Meadow ponies as I have several. I have two mares out of the great Miss America mare. Miss Congeniality - bred to Swan's Fair Victory and Celebrity Girl who is currently open. (I have her filly for sale out of Michigan's Zoro). I also have Hello Dolly who is out of Model Te and AGS She's A Doll - Dolly is in foal to Te-Bone. Lastly, I have 3 colts and a filly from Te-Bone '07 and am expecting 5 colts out of Te-Bone this year, '08.

    What a fantastic group of shetlands you have!

    I'm familiar with all your MooseMeadow ponies.

    I miss seeing Celebrity Girl, she was one of my favorites.

    Now that I'm aware of your website, I'll be checking it

    out frequently. Can't wait to see the new Te-bone babies

    and Victory's first foals.

    Tell Te-Bone his nephew Ben says hi.

    Awww Boinky it doesn't look that homely! I bet it looks even better shed out?

    I have a yearling colt out of Moose Meadows Miss Missouri, he is a full brother to Jennifer (Sweet Opal)'s mare "Fancy Ribbons FMF."

    My colt is such a sweetie pie, I just adore him.

    Here is a picture taken by his breeder, Holly Bowers. My colt is named Quake ( "MB's Aftershock") and you can see a little of his dam peeking out behind him. I think she's cute in this picture:
