"Willow" is a recent addition to my herd. 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 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. **UPDATE: Willow is bred once again to Lil Whiz, for a 2019 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. She should be bred to Lil Whiz for a 2019 foal. I'm excited to see what she produces.

 Official Name: Little Kings Jamaica Me Dream

"Dream" is a dream come true, thus her name. I purchased Dream from the Little King Farm in December of 2015. LKF let me name her and Jamaica Me Dream fits. I've always wanted to own LKF horses. Now I own 3, as I've also purchased Dream's dam, Shine, and a Buckeroo son, Heartbreaker. All go back to the East Acres Golden Jubilee line, which LKF raised many champions from. What awesome additions to my herd. Main picture above doesn't do Dream justice. She's a bit fat on pasture and she's a few months pregnant. So anxious for her first foal to arrive in 2019. It will be homozygous black, possibly homozygous agouti and it will carry a cream gene. **UPDATE: I DNA color tested Dream and the results are EE, AA and CrCr. Dream will ALWAYS throw buckskins, possibly a perlino with the right stallion.

Shine is a fabulous new mare I just purchased. She is the dam of Jamaica Me Dream above. Shine is bred back to Zipit for a 2016 foal. Shine goes back to East Acres Golden Jubilee, Komokos Little King Supreme (twice) and Flying W Farms Little Blue Boy. I'm looking forward to getting some extraordinary foals from Shine. Both Shine and Heartbreaker, my new Little King stallion, are out of the same dam, Little Kings Jamaica Jubilee. They are perfect to cross with my Lil Whiz foals. Believe it or not, Shine is 7 months pregnant in these photos. UPDATE: Shine had a stunning palomino filly on my birthday in 2016. She foaled a tiny bay colt on August 27, 2017. Currently breeding her to Larry for a 2019 foal.

Sky is a dream come true for me. Awesome color, super straight, gorgeous trot and so 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 tiny 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!

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. See O Bay B further down below. 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. Since I have Larry for sale, I've bred Addy to Larry for 2019. Can't wait to see what they produce!

"CoCo" is a gorgeous Buckeroo granddaughter. Her sire is a leopard appy, so CoCo may be appy as well. She hasn't been tested though and doesn't have super obvious spots. I've decided to retain CoCo and will most likely have her on my show string next year. I just love this girl.

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".

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 my favorite mare and 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 is bred to Scott Creek's "Monarch" for 2019. I can't wait to see this foal! It will be a keeper for sure.

 Dam: Dar' Shanna 35.75"
 Height: 32"

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.

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. What a pleasant surprise.

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.

"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.

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 fill and 2018 bay roan colt. I believe Libby is in foal to Larry for 2019.
