    Default LET'S HEAR ABOUT SOME FAMOUS PONY HUNTER BROODMARES

    Since we are talking about pony stallions and prefixes, what about the mares that produced several great show ponies/horses?

    Default Am I Blue

    I am thinking you speak of older broodmares , but I have a grand old broodmare who is by a wonderful older stallion -Liseter Cadet... She -did very well with her show career -
    9th overall at Pony Finals, and Horse of Year in Medium Greens..back in her day. She had riders Cesery and Aldridge in her show career. She is now in my broodmare band, prior to that--she had some babies for other programs--none which are "famous" yet --but time will tell - one of them qualified for pony finals last season, but I do not think they attended.

    Last summer she gave me an ADORABLE black colt....

    Here are her links... she is at the top of my broodmare link..

    Here is her 08 colts slideshow & you can see the old gal too:

    I bet the Glenmore poster and VaBred can contribute a lot to this post..as they know a lot of the history behind the ponies........ hope they weigh in on this..

    And Sugarbook--you get lots of the famous ponies right from the ring there in Florida--into your program... oh do tell us about some famous mares

    Oh and just before Christmas -- was able to lease a great broodmare--she is the dam of the current performing pony Blue Crush. The broodmare is very nicely bed-- she is by Cloe Olympic Medallion(by Cloe Olympian) and out of Cloe Sylvan Blue (by Findeln Blue Danube. I cant wait to see what she will produce with my stallion Power.

    I can't say she's famous, but our recently deceased pony's dam, Farnley Lorgnette, had 24 foals! Pony people may recognize some of her offspring.... http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/farnley+lorgnette

    The fact that she put the finest pony I have ever know and had the good fortune to own on the ground makes her famous in my book
    Y'all ain't right!

    Love those mares best of all.


    My personal favorite would be Pandora (Upland Ripple) the dam of Cymraeg Rainbeau.

    Then, there is Cui Glitter, dam of Farnley Lustre.

    And Blue Haviland, dam of Blue Rain.

    And Dolrhedyn Rose, dam of Dolrhedyn Rambler.

    Those are the obvious standouts as they started the dynasty in pony hunters.

    Default Silver Slippers

    Silver Slippers (Sylvia's Comet) was a fabulous broodmare and crossed with Old Glendale produced:

    Sultan's Quest
    Slip Cover
    Slip Note
    Slip Ring

    All of which were HUGE winners in the pony hunter world.

    I am not sure what you are asking for. I have quite a few "famous" mares who have become broodmares at Sugarbrook. If thats the question I will answer. Let me know.

    Famous based on what they produced.

    It can be famous mares that have famous offspring or a mare that has produced several famous offspring.

    I'm glad you are talking about the mares. The are so underappreciated.
    I have 2 at the top of my list.
    GLENMORE JASMINE (Forge Nimbus x Glenmore Chanel x Coed Coch Grey Cloud). She produced Blue On Blue, Always Blue, America, Summer Dreams, Blue Flower, Blue Fox, Violets Are Blue, Blue Rains Princess, Ready To Rock. I may have missed some, I'm not sure.
    Another outstanding mare was TEASE ME NOT(by Coed Coch Grey Cloud). She produced For Kids Sake, Pepperment Pizzazz, No Kidding, Kid You Not, Just A Kid, Kid me Not, Are you Kidding, Such a Tease, Who's Kidding Who, Kidding around, and Always Kidding.
