In our extensive search for a wonderful traditional wagon mare, we knew exactly what we wanted. Tall and broad, heavy in bone and feather, with a non-saturated bloodline. We wanted a mare/filly that we could breed to several different bloodlines that were prominate in the US to produce offspring with a more genetically diverse bloodline. Well, Bruree AKA Bree fit the bill! It is rare that a breeder could honestly say there is not one thing I would change about her. She is everything we could have hoped for and more.
She came to us from Tracy Maher in Paola, KS at Eiresown Sporthorses. She is out of an Irish imported mare named Nenagh (now owned by Gypgy Horses of New England) by the amazing Irish imported stallion Clononeen Slievenamon. Sadly, Slievenamon passed away all too soon. The breed as a whole is sadly deprived of this stallion. He was MAGNIFICENT! I loved this bloodline so much I searched out all the offspring I could find. To that end, I bought a colt , Horse Feathers Quinn who is his grandson. He looks remarkably like Slievenamon, and I can not wait to see what his future holds.
As for Bree, she expecting her first foal in 2011. We intend to continue her training for a show career in 2012. I am certain this mare will go far.
UPDATE: On January 23,2011 Bree presented us with a black and white filly 3 weeks early! All is well with Mom and baby. We have decided to name her WayCross Mi Victory!
