After attending several
American Warmblood Society inspections in 2002,
I began rethinking my approach to breeding.
That lead to changes
in our philosophy
from breeding strictly NSH's to cross-breeding
in order to produce a slightly larger,
more competitive sport horse
of greater substance
that still possessed
the elegance and liteness of the NSH.
That also meant searching for and purchasing mares
to compliment our smaller NSH stallion, Skeye.
Be that as it may,
the running joke amongst friends and family is that the herd grew
with every anniversary, birthday, or "hallmark holiday" gift
my loving husband Dan would present to me
--the gift of equipment.--
a tiller, trencher, tractor, bobcat and...
and that I returned the favor(s) by purchasing and presenting him
with the gift of a horse!
By the end of 2002,
we added and subtracted, leased and purchased,
Morabs, Arabians, Thoroughbreds, and an American Bashkir Curly.
So where did the little one come from?
I managed to get hooked on an adorable miniature weanling
listed by a Dr Susan Scholl of Raccoon Run Miniatures in Ohio
(thank you Susan for such a wonderful filly),
and the rest is history.
Oh, and just like Lay's potato chips,
believe me when I say,
no one can have just one!!!
