For Sale
Just a handful of mares here these days, and I am suddenly aware how few pictures we've got.
Cassandra Starlight
Grays Starlight x Doc's Cassandra by Doc Bar

She has a Smart Chic O'Lena colt now two, soon up for sale, another on the ground as of April/06. There was some temptation to keep Chico "senior" had the new foal been a filly, but as it is... we don't need both.

Holly Mayo
Gay Bar King x Hollywood Mayo

This is one of the few pictures I have of her - roughly 20 years old then. The miserable little fellow beside her soon acclimatized to his new world and is now quite robust, a long yearling, as of Oct/05/05. Holly has another onboard, same cross, and if it is also a colt, then one or the other will be sold - probably. She does not have a page, although the colt does.

Twice Royal Rocinante
Docs Twice Royal x Lucky Contadina by King McConnell

Photo taken at 2 years, a gawky stage. Now five (?), she'll get a page here someday, presently has a filly by "Dunnit", her first baby, and I am quite pleased. The filly hasn't quite made up her mind about color, born an ash blonde dun, likely to turn out a very dark dun.

Miss Colonel Boon
Colonel Freckles x Boons Pride by Boon Bar

No page, no decent pictures. Caroline got her as a possible "keeper" broodmare, and she made us wonder at first. But, her babies *do* shape up after a lackluster phase. Thankfully - we have too few mares as it is, and time is passing, so we'd feel it worse if one wouldn't produce well.

She checked in foal to "Dunnit" - last year, and lost it somewhere along the way. We would have repeated the cross to Twice Royal had her earlier foal by him looked as good then as he does now. So, as it turns out, the old guy gets another shot at her.

Lucky Contadina - foaled 1981
King McConnel x Red Paisana by Osage Red

(Approx. 20, 21 years in photo) She was 3'rd place Working Cow (west coast) sometime around 1984, maybe 1985. I may someday take the time to find her in old magazines. The NRCHA is no help; when they absorbed the CRCHA they lost the records. In any case, she is/was one of my all-time favorite rides - quick, powerful, fast. She shares a page with her mother.

Docs Double Diana
Lucky Colonel x Docs Peppy Jessica by Peppy San Badger

I think she's four now, so this picture is a little out of date. Like her mother, our only criticism is that she's short, (no longer *this* short) otherwise outstanding.

Dox Elegant Girl
Peppy San Badger x Elegant Doc by Doc Bar

Home again after 21+ years on the road - Caroline sold her as a weanling, and bought her back, Feb 06. We ended up without any Elegant Doc daughters, regretted it, and are really pleased about this. In this picture she's about ten minutes out of the trailer from Montana, 22 years old. Elegant Doc was a 1974(?) 3/4 sister of Twice Royal's, also out of King Cobra xKing.
Incidentally, she came in foal to Jewel Dun It for a late foal - not the type of breeding we are after, so the baby will be offered for sale. Sept. 06 update - he's on the ground now, hard to fault, and has heaps of personality.

Foxie Merada
Freckles Merada x Foxie Doc by Doc Bar

This one was acquired Sept. 06 in an effort to patch another hole in the bunch here. We got only a few foals out of Doc's Diana, full sister of Foxie Doc, who was sold at maybe 3 years. So, a daughter of Foxie Doc has special value to us.
Foxie Merada and Foxie Doc both had good careers together with nice production stats. The NCHA "Top 100 leading lifetime cutting horse dams" presently lists Foxie Doc at number 59, and Foxie Merada at 86 .
