 Official Name: DBLDS Dixie Cowgirl Dun Got Twisted
 Birthday: April 25, 2014

 Height: 32

"Willow" was added to my herd in 2015. After a lot of research into the dun gene, I realized that most of my herd wasn't dun. LT and her offspring were the only dun horses in my herd. I've now sold LT and only have her daughter Amber from that dun line. I decided to look for some more true dun horses to add to my herd. I ended up purchasing two young mares out of a true grulla dam, Willow and Cameo. Willow has been DNA tested and is homozygous for black and carries no agouti or cream gene. Her lighter coat color is due to her dun gene. No need to test her for the dun gene, as she has the leg barring, dorsal stripe and lighter body color of a true dun. A wonderful addition to my herd. Willow gave birth to a gorgeous bay roan filly in March of 2017. She gave birth to a bay dun colt in 2019. Willow was left open for 2020 but is confirmed "in foal" for 2021. She is bred to Inwhizable and this will be his first foal.

Latte is a new mare I added to my herd in early 2018. She is a rare champagne colored mare. I hope to get a few quality champagne foals out of her. Latte had a gorgeous silver bay roan champagne filly in April of 2019 (keeping). Latte had a stunning classic roan champagne colt in April of 2020. I hardshipped Latte into AMHR, so any of her foals can now be double registered! Latte should be bred back to Whiz for 2021.

Sky is a dream come true for me. Awesome color, super straight, gorgeous trot and so tiny and refined. Both her sire and grandsire are Lil Whiz. Check him out, on my "stallions" page, as he's absolutely stunning. Looking at Sky's photo, it's hard to believe how small she is. UPDATE - Sky took several 1st places and one Grand Champion at the NWMHC AMHA shows in 2012. At the AMHA Western Regionals, Sky ended up taking a Reserve Champion ribbon as well (pictured above). Sky was the NWMHC Year End High Point winner for Solid Colored Mares. Sky also took the NWMHC Year End Reserve High Point award for Yearling Mares 28" And Under. What a great job for her only year showing. Sky is so small that I waited until she was 4 years old before breeding her. Sky had a tiny perfect little colt March 16th, 2016.....over 3 weeks early. I'd just taken her off of watch, and put another mare on, as Sky wasn't progressing, or so I thought. The tiny little colt didn't survive without me attending. Devastated and feel so bad! Gorgeous foal, so tried this pairing again. Sky lost her 2017 foal a good two months early. 3rd times a charm? UPDATE - Sky foaled a super tiny filly on March 16, 2018. I shaved her head and neck and she's a blue roan! Sky was left open for 2019 and 2020. Plans are to breed her for a 2021 foal.

What a gorgeous mare. Addy's grandsire is Bond AToy4UC. What a pedigree this one has and it definitely shows. The main photo was taken on August 29, 2009....baby photos of her were taken June 12, 2007. Finally got her AMHA papered, thanks to Joanne Ross and AMHA. Addy out did herself with her 2013 bay pinto filly, O Bay B. Addy had a tiny red splash colt from Jubilee April 15, 2015. Addy was bred for 2018 but spontaneously aborted her filly at 6 months along. In 2019, Addy had a stunning bay colt out of Larry. Addy is vet checked "in foal" to Heartbreaker for 2021.

"CoCo" is a gorgeous Buckeroo granddaughter. Her sire is a palomino leopard appy, but CoCo was DNA'd and found to be negative for the appaloosa genes. She is a gorgeous buttermilk buckskin. Since I lost two Little King mares in 2019, due to a coronavirus outbreak, I've decided to retain CoCo. CoCo has a stunningly super high tail flagging trot. I just love this girl.

"Spritzy" is a dream come true. She's my first champagne foal and a filly to boot! Her mom is the oldest horse on my farm, so I was super excited when this filly arrived. I've color DNA'd her and she is Zz (one silver), EE (homozygous black), Rn (classic roan), Aa (one agouti), making her a silver roan amber champagne.

Fancy is a bay roan pinto granddaughter of Sheep Meadow Whiz and Columbia Top Flight. She has wonderful movement in a compact refined body. Both parents are homozygous for black so Fancy is as well. She may also be homozygous for agouti, but hasn't been tested yet. I expect her to mature around 31-31.5". Fancy has awesome tail flagging movement. Main picture above does not do her justice. I hope to get great pictures and a video of her in the near future.

7th foal of 2013 and all I can say is wow. "Bay B" is a Bond AToy4UC great granddaughter and a Sheep Meadow Whiz granddaughter. Bay B is out of one of my favorite mares and my favorite stallion. She's a keeper! Lower pictures were taken at 1 day old, while she was still trying to figure out her long legs :) Main picture was taken as a yearling at the Spanaway show. Bay B had a solid bay filly, bred to Spider, in April of 2017. Bay B had a stunning sorrel pinto colt from Scott Creek's "Monarch" in 2019. Bay B has been ultrasounded and is bred to Keeper for 2021.

 Official Name: Thistle Fields Royal Shenanigans
 Birthday: April 14, 2008
 Sire: Scott Creek Royale Treasure 29.75"
 Dam: Dar' Shanna 35.75"
 Height: 32"
 Registration: A 206421 / R 318529A-DNA Tested
 
Shenanigans is a black pinto, as she does not carry a cream or silver gene. Shena is homozygous for Tobiano! She has one blue eye, four white stockings, a star, snip and spots within the white on her back. Shenanigans was hardshipped into AMHA in 2011. Shena is a granddaughter of my first ever miniature stallion, Showtyme Dark Secret, pictured above right. Dark Secret was a 36.75" tall gorgeous silver dapple pinto stallion, a son of Chief Lil Britches but unregistered. This mare is AWESOME and I'm so glad I didn't sell her as a baby. Shena has given me 4 stunning colts so far, paired with Lil Whiz. Her 2012 blue roan pinto colt went to Worlds and took top 10 everytime. Her 2014 colt, pictured 2nd from left, I named Phantom. He is now sold but is on my current business card. All of her 4 colts are pictured above. Shena is almost certainly bred to Whiz for a 2021 foal.

 Official Name: Thistle Fields Silver Lining
 Birthday: May 8, 2015
 Sire: Devarys Spirit Of Whiz
 Dam: Bonsai Run Giselle
 Height: 31.25"
 Registration: A 223964 / R 332781A DNA Tested
 
Giselle finally gave me a gorgeous filly in 2015. Couldn't decide if she was a silver, silver roan or blue roan, so had her DNA tested. The results came back EE (homozygous for black), nn (negative for silver) and Rn/n (heterozygous for roan). The bottom 2 pictures above were taken when she was just 1 hour old. Even though she isn't technically silver afterall, her name has stuck, so will remain Silver Lining. Sylvie goes back to the legendary Brewers Orion Mystic. I believe Sylvie is bred to Larry for 2021, but she hasn't been vet checked.

Missy was the 1st foal of 2013 and so colorful. She is a blue roan appaloosa that's super refined and straight. Hard to see spots on her but she has the mottling and striped hooves of an appy. Missy is a very welcome addition to my herd of broodmares. Missy lost her palomino filly in 2018. Missy should be bred to Heartbreaker for 2021 but she hasn't been vet checked.

"Silly" has come back to Thistle Fields. Her previous owner sadly passed away in early 2020. It's hard to tell but she's a bay roan tovero. Her sire is homozygous for black, so is definitely a bay. The roan gene has almost completely wiped out the color of her body markings. I can't wait to see what she produces in the future. She will be part of my micro mini program. Silly's great grandsire, on her dam's side, is Harts Tip Top FLash.

"Amber" is an unusual bay dun. Her dam, LT, is now sold so I'll retain this filly to keep the bloodlines in my herd. DNA color results are back! Amber is Aa (agouti) nn (no cream) Dd (Dun), which means she is a bay or brown dun. She didn't get her mom's cream or tobiano gene but what a beauty. Amber has been vet checked "in foal" to Heartbreaker for 2021.

Libby is a gorgeous mare I added to my herd in early 2014. She has been DNA tested and is homozygous for black and carries one agouti gene. That makes Libby a black bay pinto. Libby is out of Columbia Top Flight, making her a granddaughter of National Champion Liberty winner Hidden Meadows Mighty Titan. Libby has had two stunning foals with Lil Whiz. Pictured above are her 2016 bay roan filly and her 2018 bay roan colt. I bred Libby to Larry, for a 2019 foal, but she aborted the filly a good 2-3 months early. I've bred Libby to Larry for a 2021 foal. She hasn't been vet checked but I'm pretty certain she's pregnant.
