Senior Mare Pet the Pill, IB Paranoide , a bright roaned sabino chestnut.

photos taken July 20, 2011

Jockey Club registered Thoroughbred, Pet's dam is a daughter of Transworld - sire of the immortal American steeplechaser Lonesome Glory.

Owned by Kay Jeffords, Lonesome Glory is the only American steeplechase horse to win five Eclipse Awards (1992, 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999) and also the only American jumper to earn more than $1 million. Lonesome Glory won 19 jump races (17 in the U.S. and two in England) from 35 starts and retired with earnings of $1,352,868. His five championships are surpassed only byFlatterer among steeplechasers, and put him on par with Kelso's run of five Horse of the Year titles or Forego's string of four consecutive older male championships. Since the Eclipse Awards were created in 1971, only four other horses have won five or more (of any type). The others were Forego, John Henry, Affirmed and Secretariat. Major victories came in North America's most storied races, and included three Colonial Cups, two Carolina Cups, the Temple Gwathmey, the Hard Scuffle, the Royal Chase, the Iroquois, the New York Turf Writers Cup, the A.P. Smithwick Memorial and the Breeders' Cup Steeplechase.

Pet was sired by *Paranoide (Arg), Argentine Champion race horse, who was, at the time of his importation to the USA, the fastest horse in the world on dirt and turf at several distances. Originally imported to the USA and standing at Harris Farm in California, Paranoide is still alive, in North Dakota, healthy and siring foals at the grand age of 22!

All the foals of this wonderful mare have her incredible athletic ability, intelligence, rugged soundness, fun coloration and people-loving personality. The "Pet Kids" stand out in any crowd.

The dam of several champion foals, we think that this is one of those rare mares who can produce the goods to nearly any stallion.

SOLD! in foal for 2013 to Ollie!

Congrats to Jennifer!

Another of our wonderful broodmares, "Pleasy" is royally bred, from lines producing both great racehorses and superb European hurdlers and sporthorses. From the first crop of her sire, Souvenir Copy, she has a sweet and quiet disposition, great legs and feet, 9 inches of flat clean bone, ground-covering gaits and lots of size. At 16:2 HH, this very balanced and proportionate mare doesn't look as big as she is until you get up close to her! She raced at Santa Anita, was retired after a severe injury and bred for her first foal at three. That foal is Always Gold, currently still racing in 2010. We foaled her second foal, our beautiful 2005 filly Sweet Goldielocks, by the Conquistador Cielo son Stolen Gold.

Pleasy's third foal, by Snowford O'Donnell RID, is a gorgeous black-liver chestnut Irish Draught Sporthorse colt foaled April 20 of 2006. We have named him Dreams Come True - and in this case, they truly have.

Pleasy foaled amother huge gorgeous colt for 2007 to the cover of dressage champion Steeped in Luck RID. We are expecting great things from this beautiful and sweet chestnut boy! His name is Lucky Punch .

Pleasy's third Irish sporthorse foal is the 2009 filly Pretty Please, by Manu Forti's Touch Down RID, first foal of her sire, and multiple champion in her first years of showing.

Pleasy's fourth Irish foal is our gorgeous new filly for 2011, Pretty Fancy.

Always Pleasing's pedigree. Her sire's page,and photo, and interesting information on her closely related cousins, the stallion Hawk Wing, and champion race mare La Lorgnette.

At the 2009 NWSHBA Breeder's Classic, Pleasy took second in the Dressage Breeding Produce of Dam class. Shown with her foals Dreams Come True (3 YO gelding) and her 2009 filly Pretty Please at foot, her score of 74.25 reflected judge Carter Bass' comments of "smooth bodied, strong toplines, good bone, nice angles".

SOLD! in foal for 2013 to Ollie!

Congrats to Jennifer!





Worldly Remarque, "Markie", is our youngest broodmare, and is getting lovelier by the day. This 2002 Thoroughbred mare is right at 16:2HH, with perfect feet and legs and the sweet, quiet, sensible disposition her sire Worldly was known for producing. Sadly, Worldly was lost to colic, but in this superb daughter from his last crop, his line lives on in excellence.

Markie's pedigree, which includes Seattle Slew, Buckpasser, War Admiral and other memorables, can be seen here. .


April 14, 2006, Markie produced her first foal, a gorgeous bay filly, the very image of her lovely dam, to the cover of Snowford O'Donnell RID. We have named her Perfect World.


April 21, 2007

Markie produced a lovely correct colt by Braveheart RID, her second Irish Draught Sporthorse foal. His name is Warrior's Marque and he is now a multiple regional open Champion and national Breed Champion at yearling and two.

as of October 2007 - Markie is happily living in beautiful Montana with her new owner!
