Mosaic’s pedigree includes top bloodlines in both the show jumping and dressage worlds, and she comes from a very illustrious family of performance horses. She is by our Thoroughbred stallion Painting Freedom and out of the Hanoverian mare Mystic. Mystic’s sire, the Elite Hanoverian Stallion Mister A, was a member of the famous Hanoverian Chestnut Quadrille in Germany, and was a successful grand prix dressage horse. Mister A is a son of the French Anglo-Arab stallion Matcho, who, after he was bought by the State Stud, won his performance test against Hanoverian stallions.
Mystic’s dam, Wanda, was the Grand Champion Hanoverian at the 1998 Spruce Meadows Hanoverian Mare Show at the age of eighteen. Wanda’s foals include 1 who prepared for the US Olympic dressage team, 3 who were Canadian National Dressage Champions, and 1 who was a champion hunter. Wanda’s sire, Werther, was honored as Hanoverian stallion of the year in 1992, the first stallion to receive this recognition, and was one of the most important sires of the modern Hanoverian breed. Mosaic is a perfect combination of her family’s kind, gentle and willing dispositions, beautiful movement, and eye opening athleticism all packaged in a stunning chestnut and white coat. Her pedigree, conformation and movement will make her suitable for almost any discipline, and her color and markings will assure that she turns heads wherever she goes! She will be registered with the American Warmblood Society.

Kate is an outstanding filly from a strong family both in the race and sport horse worlds. Her sire, Montbretia, is a winning son of Meadowlake and is out of a stakes placed full sister to champion sprinter Cherokee Run. Kate's dam, Raspberry Beret, was a winner at the track, is out of a stakes placed winner at 2, and is half to a stakes winner at 2.

Kate is a very elegant filly with 3 beautiful gaits, a willing and bold disposition, and an eager-to-learn attitude that will make her suitable for almost any discipline. She should mature to between 16.1 and 16.2 hands. Current on all vaccinations, worming and farrier. No vices, very nice to handle and work around.
Shadow is the complete package! Here is a very rare chance to own a colt with outstanding conformation, fabulous bone and substance, beautiful movement and a wonderful disposition who is also DNA tested EE/aa, making him homozygous black. Shadow is a grandson of A. P. Indy on the top and out of Painting Shadows, often called the world’s most beautiful Thoroughbred mare. Painting Shadows is by Airdrie Apache, and is a full sister to our stallion Painting Freedom. Shadow is dual registered with both the Jockey Club and APHA. He currently stands 16.2 hands with quite a lot of growing left to do. Shadow is very well mannered. He is currently turned out in a field of geldings who have kept him very polite and respectful around other horses. He has been hand walked all his life around our neighborhood with other horses, has been trailered to our local horse park and hand walked around and over the cross country jumps, and shows all the signs of being an excellent eventing or hunter prospect. He stands tied, is good with his feet, has been saddled and bridled with no issues, and is ready to continue with his under saddle work. I had originally intended to keep this beautiful colt and show him, but I am finding that the breeding and foal side of the farm has limited my time too much to really do him justice, so I am offering him for sale or possible lease. I truly believe this colt has an excellent show career ahead of him, and will obviously be an outstanding addition to someone’s breeding program once his performance career is completed. With his outstanding conformation, bone, size and movement, I think he could be presented and approved for breeding to warmblood mares in the future as well. No vices, current on worming, vaccinations and farrier work.
Dandy will stand out in the crowd! This beautiful colt has excellent bone, outstanding confirmation, amazing speed, agility and athleticism and gorgeous movement, all packaged in a handsome black and white coat. He has a very outgoing and friendly personality, is very bold and has an eager, willing to learn attitude that makes him a real pleasure to handle and work around. He has been DNA tested Ee/aa, making him a true black. Although he displays a very overo type pattern, he does not carry the frame gene, so he will be safe to cross on frame positive mares without the fear of producing a lethal white foal. Dandy is from a strong family both on the race track and in the sport horse world. He is a grandson of Painting Freedom on the top side, and his dam is a granddaughter of A. P. Indy. This colt will be suitable to race or show, and will be an outstanding stallion prospect once his performance career is completed. He will be dual registered with both the Jockey Club and APHA, and will be able to be shown as both a Thoroughbred and Paint. All registration fees are included. .
