Pixie Dust 'Em. Selling as part of my breeding stock dispersal. Registered Jockey Club Mare. Pixie Dust 'Em, 2006 granddaughter of Unbridled out of a daughter of Known Fact. Pixie's dam had only 2 starts, but she showed a ton of heart when she went to her knees in her 2nd start coming out of the gate, got back to her feet, and went on to finish 2nd in a mile race. She had to be vanned off afterwards with what turned out to be a slab fracture of her knee. Pixie's 2nd dam was the multiple race winning, multiple race winning producer Vibrant Future by Vigors, her 3rd dam was the stakes placed mare Kenergy by King Emperor, dam of multiple winners and stakes placed runners and grand dam of nearly 1.9 million dollar earner Mobil, and the 4th dam is Future Decision by Dead Ahead, a stakes winning producer of numerous outstanding runners. Pixie started life already showing her great heart and determination as she was born 6 weeks early on a night that dropped to 22 below zero. She was born in a pen surrounded by hay bales in the aisle between the stalls in my vet's barn because all the stalls were full and there was no place else warm enough for her to foal. It was quite a struggle for the first 6 weeks, but Pixie pulled through and never looked back. She was never started under saddle due to getting her head caught in a gate as a yearling (she apparently never heard the saying about curiosity killing the cat and was one of those younsters that was always into something), but has produced 3 outstanding foals for me, a 2012 Friesian sport horse filly who is in training for dressage, an outstanding colt in 2014 who sadly broke his hind leg in a freak training accident whose owners absolutely adored his great mind and athletic ability, and a fabulous 2015 filly who is going to get her chance at the races with her new owner. Pixie only stands 15 hands, but don't let her height fool you; this mare is an absolute power house, and her foals all show promise of being quite a lot taller than she is. Pixie tends to throw more toward the height of the sire, so she would make an excellent pony hunter broodmare, or, if continued to be bred to taller stallions, the options are limitless. Pixie is in foal to Arctic, my base bay dominant white Thoroughbred stallion for 2017. This foal will be a full sibling to her 2014 colt and 2015 colored filly. The foal will be able to be dual registered with both the Jockey Club and APHA and will be able to be shown and/or raced as both a thoroughbred or Paint. She is an uncomplicated mare to breed and foal out and is a fantastic mother. She is current on all vaccinations, farrier and worming.

ANEIGHZING GRACE Born 5/14/2008
Generally a Lady, 2006 Thoroughbred mare by Patton, a stakes winning son of Lord at War and out of a Seattle Slew mare. Lady's dam Whiskersinthelight by Glaros, was a multiple race winner who was out of a multiple stakes placed winning daughter of Mr. Leader. Lady has a half brother who won multiple races at the track and who is now a successful hunter, and her dam is half to 4 multiple race winners including a stakes placed winner of over $250,000. Lady's family loves to jump and includes several successful steeple chasers and eventers. Lady was in training as an event prospect, but joined the broodmare band at Shining Mountain Thoroughbreds due to an injury which limited her career as a riding horse. She was kicked in the head by a warmblood mare in November of 2010 and was found unconscious on the ground with a fractured skull and choking on her tongue. She was completely blind for a week with extreme neurologic dysfunction which lasted for several months, but she is now nearly completely normal with the exception of startling at sudden noises and a small bit of lingering vision issues.
Most of the mares at Shining Mountain Thoroughbreds are home breds, but occasionally we acquire a special mare for her movement, disposition and pedigree and that attitude that says "pick me".

Tilly Manily 2005 Thoroughbred mare by Unbridled Desire out of Waltzing Manila by Manila. Tilly is one of our home breds that went to the track to follow in her illustrious family's hoof prints, but, unfortunately, a chip in her knee cut her career short. Her beautiful conformation, fabulous disposition, outstanding pedigree, and determined, winning attitude make her a fantastic race or sport horse broodmare. Pictured above with her 2014 filly Diedra.
Due to a severe injury to her knee caused by her dam stepping on her when she was 3 days old, this gorgeous base black, dominant white dual registered Jockey Club and APHA filly will never get to show off her talent and athleticism to the world. She delivered a beautiful homozygous black colt, Secret Apache, aka Quinn by Decoy Dan, 4/21/2016. Airdrieanna is by Matricule, a winning son of horse of the year A.P. INDY out of the French stakes winning mare MAXIMOVA. Airdrieanna’s dam is the white mare Arcticanna who is by Airdrie Apache, the world’s leading sire of colored Thoroughbreds and is out of the Raise a Man mare Tropicana Anna. Airdrieanna is a half sister to Arctic Bright View, one of the stars of the new Lone Ranger movie, and her dam has produced several mostly white Thoroughbreds. We look forward to the day when Airdrieanna’s foals are able to showcase the talent she didn’t get to exhibit, but she will be allowed to grow and mature before those exciting days will arrive.
Polish Prospect 2001 - Rosey joined the Shining Mountain broodmare band in 2012.
