    Looks like a really nice group of ponies for sale! Probably the nicest bunch I've seen in the sale. Good luck with Charlotte, Va Bred! Can't wait to see how she goes under tack. Wish I were rich....my little girl would look good on that one!

    Pocket Full of posies is adorable! I've met her in person. She is sweet too.

    Somehow 2 of my ponies didn't get their photos right in the catalog. That figures... #1 "Welshaven One Tough Cookie" & #102 "Superman" can be seen in my webshots. http://community.webshots.com/user/crystalacres

    It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

    All in Fun was in the sale in 2004 he sold for $28K as a 3 year old unbroke. It will be interesting to see what he brings in this sale

    Oh my god that is the cutest batch of 100 ponies I have ever seen! I want to collect them all and find little girls in braids to ride them.

    My favorites:
    Foxmor sophisticate (it is my junior hunter in miniature!)
    Pocket full of posies (a close 2nd in the beautiful black pony department)
    Foxmor flashdance (the paint pony I have always wanted!)

    And I wouldn't complain if someone gave me Another Beau, Fancy Feet, Cosmic Storm, or Little White Dove either!

    I saw Cwmfelen Custom Made at his A circuit showring debut on Friday. This is a pony that has a grand future ahead. Loved his job and looked very cute doing it - nice and steady with a good jump.

    Owner said he was a rescue that they have raised and started under saddle in January.

    In my opinion, this is one of the best sales held during the pony finals I can remember!

    Default Many mistakes in the catalog, unfortunately

    As the catalogs are just now arriving to everyone, I would like to point out the *many* mistakes in the catalog under descriptions of some of the ponies, most especially for Farnley Belshazzar's get.

    There are seven (7) Farnley Belshazzar offspring in the sale and several of them are discussed incorrectly by claiming to be half sibling to Rosecroft Wiseguy and Ricky Martin. WRONG!!! They are not out of the same mare, which is the only way they can be called half sibling.
    Several of these state that the dam is 'unknown" and they are only four years old. Farnley Belshazzar has been stood by Richard Taylor for longer than that and he can tell you immediately exactly who was bred to Belshazzar. There are no unknown out there, I can assure you.

    The filly Toldyouso is also listed with an incorrect name. She is listed as Itoldyouso, and that's incorrect.

    So many "claims to fame" and it's unfortunate.

    Too bad incorrect information was allowed to be published in the most premier pony sale catalog in American.

    "WRONG!!! They are not out of the same mare, which is the only way they can be called half sibling. "

    They should point this out on the sale entry form for people who are sending in entries and don't know any better. That drives me crazy too!

    In my opinion, one of the most frustrating things about pony hunter breeding is that so many trainers and owners do not bother to keep up with registrations and papers of registered ponies and they change the names of ponies without recording the breeding on entry forms and usef records. And of course, that allows a few people to be a little creative with the pedigrees they claim to belong to certain ponies that have no papers to back up the claims. I'm not accusing anyone of being dishonest, but I for one, love to see the paperwork as I am a big believer in proven pedigrees. Just my two cents.
