Aeditha is such a hard one for me to part with, because I'm so attached to her. I've taken her everywhere and done so much with her since she was a baby!
I bought Aeditha at 4 months old. She has been to the Minnesota State Fair multiple times, The Minnesota Horse Expo several years, and many shows, being shown by adults and youth. She spent two months at a local high school doing a youth horsemanship program. We've ponied her driving on the roads and really put a lot of groundwork into her.
She started riding training on January 15, 2022, so she is green broke to ride. At this time she will need an intermediate or better rider to continue her education. She will continue her training while she is here.
She is eligible for registration with GHRA if you want to earn show points with her.
I really love this mare; she is such a kind and loving and trusting girl. But as a gypsy cross, she is always going to take a back burner as she doesn't work for my breeding or showing program. I'd love to find her a home where she will be front and center of the attention she deserves, rather than just sort of put on the back burner as my show horses and broodmares take priority. She is much too young for that.
I'll be very picky about the home that she goes to. I would prefer she stay local. While I am not against breeding her, I will not sell her to a breeding only home, as she has had much too much time invested into her to not make someone a wonderful riding partner.

Palomino Tobiano Gypsy Vanner Gelding
Born April 2019
DNA: ee aa nCR nT nW20
St Brendan's Cream x Gypsy Elite Tara
What a fun, family-type taller gelding!
Phoenix was born on our farm. He was gelded as a yearling and began saddle training with Kirstin Feela in August of 2022, continuing training part-time at home with Nate Stener in December of 2022. He took a couple of months off and has started back up into full time training with new trainer Kendra Putzke!
Phoenix has ridden english and western, but seems more suited for western with his jog trot. He is a safe and level-headed boy. At four years old I don't think I'd call him a "kid's horse," as he is still just a kid himself. However, he has a good mind to him and could easily be a nice mount for a confident teenager, or even be used for kids as long as he has someone who is more experienced getting on him also.
He gets along well in a herd with mares and geldings and has even been with stallions without a problem.
His sire is an Irish imported western pleasure champion and his dam is a supreme champion halter horse imported from Germany who competed in Dressage.
We have videos available to serious parties, and since the vets are scheduling more than two weeks out for pre purchase exams we have just taken the initiative to have one done ourselves. Results will be available from the PPE after June 6.
