Toad Hill's Stormy Weather

Stormy (AMHR) was shown a little in 2006 and ended up third in Nationals Top Ten All-Star Multi-Color mares over. We decided her show in 2007. As a result of showing her the enitre season she ended up the 2007 National Champion Top Ten All-Star Multi-Color mares over.

Stormy seems to enjoy showing although she is a handful before entering the ring. John walked her around and around for at least an hour before I took her into the ring, but once the judge said to come in Stormy was all business. She would walk in with her head held proud, ears pointed forward (Kate would never do this) and almost floated on air. She was a pleasure to show, and I always felt that she was the best behaved, best looking and the one horse I always felt comfortable showing.

She will not be shown in 2008, with the cost of everything going up who can afford to show several horses these days. She is a three year old, and I think breeding her to Rebel should produce a really nice foal. Perhaps I will show the foal in the coming years, at least it is a forward looking, postive thought.
