Hickory is a beautiful light gold (in the summer) palomino mare who gives you a ride that feels like you are gliding on ice. And if you can imagine anything smoother than that, then that is how you feel when you are riding Dusty. We are very pleased with the foal from this cross – he has a beautiful head and should make an extraordinarly trail partner as he matures. He will be a dark gold color when he sheds his foal coat.
This new colt made a happy appearance at 6:30AM on May 16, 2006. He was about 2.5 weeks early and is doing very well after a pretty rocky start. He has a star, small off-center strip, and a snip with no white markings on his legs. He should be big (Hickory is pushing 16H and Dusty is 15.2H) and it looks like he is going to have a beautiful head. He has been imprinted and is very affectionate toward humans.
He is going to be a dark golden palomino when he sheds his foal coat. He is showing good gait in the pasture. Both his sire and dam are very nice riding horses so he should make a wonderful partner as he matures. He also has some fine breeding to back him up – Southern Playboy breeding on the top and Rex’s Golden Touch breeding on the bottom.
He is for sale ($1500) and a deposit will hold until weaning (Sept or Oct.) Our foals are handled every day. They learn to lead and give their feet before they are weaned. He will also learn to load by the time he is weaned.
Dusty’s foals born off our farm:
This little guy was foaled on April 25, 2006. He is out of Sensation’s Stormy (Sera) and Dusty’s Gold Playboy. He is a stunning chestnut colt with no white. He has a beautiful little head and his owners tell me he is sweet. Sera is a protective new mom but she should settle into her new role in the coming days. I will update pictures as I get them. He resides in Springfield, MO with Debbie and Dick Stange and they are going to call him Solomon.
Rocket’s Red Glare (pending) – born in Fresno, CA
This beautiful red dun stud colt is a direct grandson of Poole’s Red Rocket on the bottom and he is Southern Playboy bred on the top. He has a huge chest and an outstanding look to him – we are very pleased with the result of this cross. Thanks so much for sharing with us, Lyn!
Below you will see the mares we have crossed with Future and their expected foal dates. It will be a long wait, but we suspect the resulting foals will be well worth the anticipation. We not only have some good opportunities for some outstanding color in these foals -these mares also represent some tip top breeding and have excellent conformations to cross with Future. The ones that state the foal will be for sale are our mares and will be born on our farm. The other foals may become available, but those mares and coming foals are not ours.
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Cassey’s Sarah
This foal is due 04/03/07 and should be a nice foal. Cassey is very stocky and square – Future adds his beautiful head, disposition, and elegance to a foal.
This foal will be for sale
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Jock’s Gypsey Lady ZZ
This foal is due 04/14/07 and should also be a nice foal. Gypsy is an outstanding trail horse and she has an elegance about her with a huge front end.
This foal will be for sale
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Zane’s Trace – due 4/20/07
Trace is a beautiful black and white spotted mare that happens to be built like a tank. We are certain the foal will be something spectacular.
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Eliminator’s Faithful Lady
This mare has been tested and is HZ black. The foal will either be black or grulla. Great breeding will combine with nice conformations to make a really special foal as a result of this cross. Foal due around 5/18 but not confirmed yet
The foal will be for sale
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Perfections Black Cloud D
This is a pretty, smaller mare – built like a quarter horse. She was a rescue horse like the mare above, but she is really showing potential now. This should be a nice foal. Foal due around 5/18 but not confirmed yet
DFE’s Future Is A Dun X Lady’s Cee Me 2 D
We used to own Savannah but she now lives in Knoxville with a friend of ours. She is going to be bred in late June to Future.
We want your transaction to be a happy experience. We feel this will most likely occur if we set our terms from the beginning. We will hold a foal until weaning for 25% of the sale price and will hold a horse for the same 25% until arrangements can be made to pick up the horse. All monies will be applied toward the sale price of the horse or foal, but are non-refundable if the buyer chooses to back out on the sale. All extra costs (i.e. farrier work, medications, vet fees, etc) will be the responsibility of the buyer once the contract is signed. No horse or foal can leave our farm until the selling price is paid in full. We will be happy to have our vet come out at your expense and conduct a health check to whatever extent you desire on the horse or foal you are interested in purchasing, or you can schedule a time for your vet to come out to check the horse. Our horses are UTD on vaccinations to the point of the sale. We vaccinate for Potomac Horse Fever and we also give a 5-way vaccination (and booster for foals over 6 months old.) We will supply a current (within 12 months) negative coggins and health certificate (if requested) on our horses for travel. We try very diligently to inform you of any physical or health problems that we are aware of on any of our horses before the sale, but there is always a possibility of a problem that has not been detected. Since horses are live animals and problems can arise quickly, we do not guarantee the horse beyond the transfer of ownership. In the case of bred mare sales – we warrant that the mare is in foal at the time of transfer, but we cannot control the conditions after the sale and therefore cannot guarantee a live foal. Any guarantees or warranties must be stated in writing and signed by both parties to be valid. We reserve the right to change these terms of sale at any time and any contract between us will be in writing and signed by both parties.
We also offer a waiting list for those interested in first right of refusal on any of our foals before the expected foal date. For a $25 fee, we will place you on our waiting list in the order of payment and you will be contacted before any of our foals are offered to the public. If you choose to purchase one of our foals through this service, your $25 fee is applied toward the purchase price. If you decline any given year’s foals, your name will be transferred to the following year’s list until you find a foal that is right for you. If you decide you are not interested in any of our foals and want to be removed from the list, your $25 fee is forfeit. This is a good way to insure you have the first shot if you have something specific in mind that you would like to own (i.e. – a grulla filly.) If you are interested in this service, contact us and we will set you up on the list.
