It's Official...the 2010 National MultiColor Stallion

Toad Hill's Spots and Dots -

2010 National All Star Champion Multi-Color Stallion/Gelding Under

Spots and Dots, 29", was shown as a yearling for the first time this year.
He was also shown in Bred, Owned and Shown by Exhibitor (BOS) placing 3nd in National All Star 2010, the Reserve National All Star winner should be Little Dove, also owned by Toad Hill.
For me that is quite a feat, since I am not a professional trainer. I have learned by trial and error to show horses, have very little time outside of work to train, clip my own horses and show them myself. I have never felt comfortable in open classes so when I discovered this class I thought I would try it. I can show my horses against a more level field with other owners who raise and show their own horses. Yeah BOS classes.

Spots and Dots now has a full brother, yet to be named. If I do not sell Spots and Dots I may show both in Produce of Dam and Get of Sire, yes I have a third foal sired by Fancy Pants.

UPDATE: 2011 - Spots will come in 2nd to my other stallion: Foxfire's Picture Perfect and he and Goblin will be National Champions of Produce of Dam for Toad Hill's Kiss Me Kate and also National Champion in Owned, Bred and Shown by Exhibitor Stallions Under.

Chariots - Friesians Do IT!

Chariots...There are a number of other horse breeds that have chariot classes or exhibitions. I was somewhat amazed to find a number of these on YouTube. Friesian MWFNA 2010 FHANA Chariots
