Ginger is an outstanding halfbred mare. Her sire is our foundation stallion Briarpatch Mack, and she has his loving disposition with that desire to connect! She sticks right at 14h but seems bigger/taller, If you are a believer in the string test, it says she will go overheight. Her full sister finished 14.2h and was sold in the five figures to a hunter show home. With beautiful conformation (she looks like a purebred), that trademark disposition and basic ground work done, she is ready for an owner with a trainer to start her under saddle. Leads, loads, ties, picks up feet, long lines and longes. Her markings are amazing: line back dun all the way into the tail, zebra stripes on the legs, and a large lovely diffuse star!
Poto is an eye catching black gelding, coming three in June 2021, and veeeery slowly turning grey. His mane is so long, baroque and beautifully wavy that we are leaving it for you to decide! His head is petite, very pony, and very handsome. He has plenty of bone, commendable conformation, and the disposition of his sire Briarpatch Mack. He was the tallest of his foal crop, and is expected to mature 14.2h or over. At present, he sticks 13.3h. His ground work is just commencing and he should be ready for a home with a trainer shortly!
Mo Chara (my friend in Gaelic) could well have been left a stallion. Out of Woodlands Royal Patience and by Briarpatch Mac, don’t let this sweet baby picture fool you: At maturity he is solidly 15 hands with tremendous bone, type, movement, scope and athleticism. Born bay and now a stunning grey, he is an eye catching fellow indeed. He has a good overstride at the walk, suspension at the trot, and a soft uphill canter. We think he is destined for eventing. UPDATE: Sold to CCI* eventer Ann Baumgardner, we are excited for the future these two have together!
