Breed show winner producing mare
Well, I told myself that I wouldn't buy any more mares until I sold one. I gave myself one *tiny* exception: if I ever saw Star for sale (the dam of my late mare Minnie and granddam of my mare Pearl) I could buy her. I had no idea where she was, if she was still alive or even if anyone would be interested in selling her...then a friend told me that she was going to be listed for sale soon. So here she is!
So much for a TINY exception...Star is a whole 16.3 hands tall! She is the tallest gypsy on our farm. It took a lot of unravelling, but we discovered Star's history (which is documented on our Hidden Ponds Facebook page). She is DNA verified as a daughter of Clononeen Dunbrody (who is thought to be older than the age he was originally sold as) and a granddaughter of Shambo.
Star will retire at Hidden Ponds.
