SilverWind Blue Sonata
AMHA/AMHR DNA homozygous Black 33.5"
HCM War Paint's Stormbringer x FWF Blue Serenade
Sonata is my heart horse. Her sire was my 2nd stallion, and should have been shown. Her dam is the legendary FWF Blue Serenade whom I leased one season. Sonata was the result of that lease. She is elegant, balanced, and oh so lovely. One day I will get pictures that do her justice!
Her dam was 62.5% FWF Little Blue Boy & 100% FWF bred. Her sire was a son of a World Top 3 Senior Halter Stallion, out of a top ten daughter of Reserve World Grand Champion and 12x World Champion X'Caliber's Little Navajo, and her dam's dam was a daughter of the only full brother to legendary Choco's Little Specks Red Boy. She is the Queen here and she knows it!

Establo La Scala
ASPC/AMHR DNA Palomino 35.5"
National Top Ten Halter Senior Mare & Hall of Fame (HoF)
Kewpies Klassic Kreation of Arenosa x Lasca Kewpie of Arenosa
My lovely Scala was bred by the legendary Sandy Nichols, and is 100% Arenosa. She is a granddaughter of both Kewpie Dolls Diablo and Kewpies El Monterray of Arenosa, with such other notables as Oracle, Winnie the Pooh of Arenosa, Topper, and Super Duper Goldie. I jumped at the opportunity to purchase this mare in the fall of '15 (actually asked my husband for her for Christmas!) and she has not disappointed.
Scala gave me a gorgeous, jet black filly by Poet in 20 that is being retained. She was left open for '21 and I have not yet decided who to breed her to for '22.
Lorien A Bit of a Silk Celebration
AMHA/AMHR PQ bay 32.75"
AMHA Regional Top Ten (6th) Amateur Stock Type & Open Stock Type
The Revelation of Two Bit Tommy x ASA Boy Blues Silk Celebration
If I have a 2nd favorite, it's Tilly. She is the image of her gorgeous mother, with all of her sire's personality. She is a beautiful, confident young mare and will help to carry my farm into the future!
DBFs Fancy Face
AMHA/AMHR PQ'd Sorrel 34"
AMHR name: Enyalien Fancy Inspiration
Boone's Mr. Crisp x Winks Spirit
Fancy is a mare I pursued for 3 years, and have now owned for 12. She is 50% Winks bred, and the only known breeding mare of Winks Showdeo Inspiration in AMHA with pedigree intact. She is the dam of Flame and her bloodlines are carried forward in my herd by him, and hopefully a daughter yet! Fancy is perfectly proportioned and passes on her lovely laid back shoulder and long neck to most of her foals. She carries both foundation Showdeo stallions of the Winkleman program, the legendary Winks Showdeo Kid (the only Shetland to win at the prestigious Devon Show and sire of a show dynasty that has launched numerous Shetland farms to fame) and Winks Showdeo Tradition who brought wild color into the mix. She ended up with two names as when I hardshipped her into R, they would not allow me to use her A name, saying I couldn't use another farm's prefix. Thankfully that policy has since changed.
Fancy has been placed in a loving retirement home with an older gentleman who fell for her and wanted an older mini to keep him company. She was having a harder and harder time with my alpha mares as she aged, and this was the best solution. I miss Fancy, I'd owned her for the majority of her life, but her legacy lives on here in her son Flame and her valuable genetics will be in most of my 2021 foals as Flame had his turn to do most of the breeding. She will stay on my mares page as a reference, she has more than earned that right.
Amazing Sonrise Count Your Blessings
AMHA/AMHR Cremello 33.5"
AF Golden Opportunity, NGC Open Pleasure Driving x Ed's Ginger
Blessings is a beautiful mare by a talented stallion I sold many years ago, when I was realizing that I wasn't going to be able to promote him the way I knew he deserved. He proved me right by winning National Grand Champion Open Pleasure Driving for his new owner his first year showing!!! I have long wanted to bring one of his daughters home and am grateful to Cathy for allowing me this opportunity when she retired. Blessings is a proven broodmare and has a wonderful buckskin pinto colt on her side in 20, sired by Two Bit.
Little Kings Malibu Buckeroo
AMHR black pinto 35"
Boones Little Buckeroo x R.E.M. Hilltop Dream
I never thought I'd be able to say that I OWN A BUCKEROO DAUGHTER!! Legendary sire of more World Grand Champions and top tens and sires/dams of the same than one can count, his legacy lives on today literally around the world. Even better, Malibu's dam line brings in some Winks blood that I don't have yet through the legend ZJ's Windwalker, a son of Winks Showdeo Kid II, as well as the well respected and show proven SMHC's Painted Freedom line and more FWF breeding. I am still thrilled to have found this treasure, and looking forward to what she produces! Malibu is expecting her first foal for me in '21 sired by Flame.
Lorien Moonlight & Roses
AMHR 33" sorrel pinto
The Revelation of TwoBit Tommy x Establo La Scala
I did not realize that I do not have any recent pictures of Rose and always loved this photo of her as a foal, so here she is for now! This captures her personality So Well. Full of herself since day 1, and still now at 3 years, she is a beautiful little ball of fire. Rose will be hardshipped into AMHA when she is 5, and continue on her lines in my program.
Rose and Flame had other ideas when it came to waiting, and he apparently bred her through the gate. She is due in March, so we'll get to see what my little spitfire produces sooner than I planned!
Baileys on the Rox of Stoney Hill
ASPC/AMHR 38" black pinto
UC Davis Color Panel1 tested LWO+, Tt & Hom. black
Grahams Santana x Wauk-A-Way Barbie
National All Stars Foundation Shetland in very limited showing
Bailey is another I need to get pictures of. I can't even find her show pictures! She is my husband's heart horse, and I am looking forward to her foals. Her sire's side is intensely line bred Black Patton blood -a GREAT Shetland of the first half of the 20th century, and well known as a broodmare sire extraordinaire in his day. Her dam's side brings in 9 ties to Winks Showdeo Kid, along with the greats Colonel Cody, King Larigo, Little Masterpiece.
