Thank you so much for watching and loving him with us. I do like our herd, but I also know our Creator is ultimately in control and made him. Sounds cliche-ish, eh??? But, my oldest and I were talking about this. Steam Roller bred other incredible mares and these babies didn't move like this one. This boy is just a special blessing. He is also one of those super personable babies that melt your heart.
Wow, thank you! I wish there were more mini enthusiasts in Arizona, so come our way
I truly don't understand why everyone does not own a mini. Thank you for the compliments. I don't usually post on Lil Beginnings, but am so excited that I want to shout from the mountain tops. Excited and scared. I HATE the colic that steals our horse friends from us.
His father was Whitneyvilles Steam Roller. http://iamranch.com/ministeamroller.htm He was double bred Mustardseeds Legionaires Hi Roller and Steam Rollers father was Candylands Best Kept Secreat. Steam Roller always trotted big, even in 110 degree heat. If you watch this colt's walk, he has bounce and lift....that was how Steam Roller was. Loved that boy and am so sorry that he is gone.
This little colt's mom is a tall lanky mare named Versatality Farms SomethingAboutMary. She is the classic cross of Buckeroo and Komokos Little King Supreme mixed in with some Shadow Oaks Top Banana. Ashley of Versatility Farms sent me some video of her when she was a yearling and I added her to my girls at that time. Steam Roller needed a big longer legs and a big longer neck in my estimation, so I bred him to necky, leggy mares who could also move. Then, it was up to God to mix the genes just right.
I just read that Puck died last year too. Some really great minis were lost last year.
