All Cats Are Grey 4/29/16 - starting her undersaddle training with Amanda Leamon

 

A couple days ago, I returned from another fun - and long - road trip with Carole to pick up a couple new ponies for our herds. The trip from Athens, TN, and back was just under 1900 miles. Carole and I headed west on Thursday to pick-up a mare for me with Foothills Farms breeding, All Cats are Grey. She is a 10 yr old, 14.3h registered purebred Connemara mare by Balmullo's Beacon, out of Foothills Kelligan; Cat was pastured in Oklahoma and had no job, so I picked her up on Friday morning, to give her offer her a brighter future and purpose in life (she has spent the last decade as a pasture ornament). Cat is a big, beautiful, strapping mare who can become a terrific breeder, eventer, or maybe my my next "do-it-all" packer, to ride/drive me anywhere I want to go (replacing TeaGo). Cat is currently the youngest purebred by Beacon. I am so excited to have her is my FFC herd!
During our big loop 1/2 way across the country,
Carole and I stopped in Kansas to pickup another "little red pony", a section A welsh, Dandardell's Maxwell, to make up the 2nd pony in Carole's perfectly matched, future CDE driving pair. After KS, our next stop was MO where we let the ponies rest for a night at Three Creek Farm, before making our final leg back to TN. Our 7-state trip took us from TN, to AK, OK, KS, MO, IL, KY, then back to TN. It was a long drive, but very worthwhile! Carole and I are both thrilled with our new ponies. Below is Cat, her 1st morning in TN (12/13/15)



Below is Kelli with her daughter, Cat, by Balmullo's Beacon (2011)

This filly, born on 3/6/05, was bred by Carolyn Mastin (AL) who passed away last year. Piper Scholfield (OK) purchased Foothills Kelligan, from Pete Mastin, after Kelli had been bred to Balmullo's Beacon.


IT'S A GIRL!!!!!
(3/05)

She's black (well, she'll be grey, of course), and she's as bold as her half-brother, Celtic Storm. Her mother is very proud, but she has her hands full keeping an eye on her wild-haired new daughter. Piper (05 March)

We call her "Murphy" and I've never had a baby like her before. She is into everything and demands constant attention. She is best friends with the farm goat. If I'm in the barn cleaning stalls, she has to be involved. She is very smart and cute and knows it...I think her mother is ready to find some good daycare. Everybody loves Murphy to pieces, which, according to her, is exactly how it should be. (05 April)
