Toad Hill's Wheels Up

My colt was foaled May 29th. He is most likely homozygous tobiano (TT) and good chance he is also homozyous black (EE). His dam is Toad Hill's Wind in the Willow, 16 years old. I had not bred her for the previous two years, but last year I decide to bred her again.


If  you look closely at the white areas you may notice that there are "bear paws," a good idea that he is TT. Also since his sire was EE and his dam cares at least one E there is a good chance Wheels may also be EE. Will check soon.


Why Wheels UP? Hint: The idea of this name is related to 2 topics: 1st the Belmont and 2nd a family name.


Bingo!! Neyitiri had a Filly

May 3, 2018 a filly that most likely will eventually change to a black pinto was foaled. Sire was Lucky Four Rebelchase Rebelheir, dam was Toad Hill's Neyitiri.

Below is Toad Hill's Bingo running with her sibling, Toad Hill's Wheels Up. More photos to come.

Toad Hill's The One: Neo

Neo is one of the friendly minis I have ever had. From the day he was foaled, he followed me around. Loves being petted, follows me everywhere. Both parents are homozygous for black and the dam is homozygous for pinto. Note that Neo will probably turn brownish ---it appears he may have a diluting gene that will change the black color, but he should be homozygous black even though it will not show the black well. 
Headed for basic training and some obstacle work this summer.
 
NeoThe colt is Toad Hill's Neytiri's first foal. This little one started out a silver color but has changed to black and a little brownish color.
Decided to call him:                  Toad Hill's The One: NEO


The chart below is also for Neo, colt.
Ancestry....GhostBuster on sire's side carries the LWO+ gene, one Tobiano (pinto) and 2 black (EE).  On the mare's side, there are 3 generations of black, pintos.

Neyitiri sire is Lucky Four RebelChase RebelHeir. GhostBuster may carry a dilution gene since the last 2 foals he sired are not totally black.

Toad Hill's She's Magic with 2015 filly,
 Toad Hill's Halley's Surprise
Foaled September 16, 2015





Above and to side...photos taken 11/2015

September 16, 2015

While Toad Hill'is She's Magic was away for training down in Sullivan, Illinois ... early in the morning (6 am) I heard the phone ring. Now a call that early is usually considered bad news, I answered the phone and it was Amanda. Amanda is training Magic for driving, so I said hello and next thing out of my month was: "What's wrong?"
Amanda said no problem, just she was out with the minis in the pasture and there was Magic with a foal by her side. Now THAT WAS Totally UNEXPECTED!!!
