Brianna has a sweet temperament, lovely tippy little ears and already shows a
huge motor! Well balanced, correctly upright and powerful, with good legs. Did
I say LONG legs?! She is playful and mischievous and loves grab ANYTHING
('ware the recycling bin, if it's too close, she'll steal the 'toys' and she's
off!) and loves to play in water. She is a hoot to watch play, and regards our 5
year old daughter as another foal, albeit she's more respectful of her
She has lots of curly, dense black coat, and already has a lot of
curly feathers, and is more luxurious then her dam. She maintains a classic
friesian look while being correct and suitable for dressage. These horses make
wonderful dressage partners, with a willing, enjoyable temperament, generous
work ethic and expressive gaits.
Her sire is well known for his dressage
ability and stands at Iron Springs Farm, respected for its many successful
stallions both producing and performing as dressage horses. Her dam is a very
similar phenotype, so it's hard to say who she favors! But it is a good cross
and her dam will also be performing as a dressage horse and we hope to present
her for her IBOP in 2009.
Brianna was presented at the September 25th 2008 Keuring in Oregon in spite of
obtaining a horrendous fence wound (she escaped to a neighbor's barbed wire) the
length of her shoulder blade. Even then she garnered a 3rd preimie (in spite of
obvious stiffness and irregularity of gait) and comment son being such a well
behaved baby. She has already been hauled, led, picks up her feet, worn blankets
and loves to play with a tarp and otherwise 'scary' objects!
