|15.1 h, black tobiano (EeaaTOTO)|
|Shotsey has now been retired from the broodmare band, the injury to her leg has finally caught up to her and we find it unlikely that she could carry the extra weight of another pregnancy without added pain and reduced mobility.|
Shotsey delivered a filly by the arabian stallion Perdition
This little filly is a typical Shotsey's baby, extremely friendly, demanding attention, very aware of everything around her she is as cute as a button. She has finally calmed down a bit, for the first two months of her life she spent most of it running circles around her mother.
Savoir Faire (Savvy for short) is a custom foal
Here is a video of Savoir Faire at approximately 1.5 months of age.
Shotsey was rebred to Gatsby
and delivered a black tobiano filly on May 2nd.
We continue to be very impressed with the quality of Gatsby's foals. He consistently produces upright, leggy, correct foals that grow into wonderful versatile athletes with excellent minds.
Sigma is everything we expected from this cross. First we knew that with Gatsby as a sire and Shotsey as the dam this foal would have a quiet, laid back, easy going temperament: Check!
We figured that this would be a tall filly, short coupled with nice springy gaits: Check!
We also knew it would be tobiano and either black or dark bay: Check!
This filly would suit anyone thinking about getting their next horse as a foal to start from scratch. Truly this one will probably train itself! She is likely going to mature in the 16 to 16.1 hh range and look absolutely stunning once she sheds out to her black coat.

|Shotsey was expecting a foal by Gatsby in late April. However we lost this foal very early due to a generalized, unexplained septicemia. It was a very nice dark bay tobiano colt. RIP little one.|
|Shotsey had a filly by Carmiro in January. Carmiro was at the time our future herd sire and being a large, extremely correct, big boned, good tempered young warmblood stallion he was the obvious choice for Shotsey's first foal for us.|
