Phone Card's Christmas Card
I just want you to know that Phoebe (Phone Card) is doing well. I
have been putting my time into training her with Dee (my trainer) to
train her in Dressage. Attached see our simple Christmas card.
It is little fuzzy because of the lighting but I wanted you to see
that she is fine. I am trying to put together a video of a
lesson so you can see what a good mover she is.
I hope your holidays have been good to you.
Fan from England
I would just like to say what an amazing filly you have bred in
Snow White Lady,
She really is stunning!
I wish she was in Europe so I could afford her, but Ií sure such a
super filly would be well outside my price range.
I thought I would email just to say what a fantastic collection of
horses you have and how impressive your website is!
White Thoroughbreds -a true gift from God!
Hi from the Sunshine State-
Hope all is well in VA
- I'm still hoping my husband, son and I are able to make a trip up
to the Washington D.C. area in the Spring or Summer and then
hopefully come to your farm for a tour (If ok with you). I
really would like to see your white thoroughbreds - what a blessing
they must be - a true gift from God!
I noticed on your
website that Snow White Lady is not being considered for sale
anymore. I have to tell you I'm very pleased to hear she gets to
remain on your farm - I'm conviced she is a special filly as is her
dam Our White Lady :-)
Wishing you a Happy
Foxy Blonde Lady
Foxy is doing
great, very sweet girl....I will get you pic of her soon, with the
election over with now I can do a lot more...Foxy gets along with
everyone, I can't say anything negative about her...She might be
going to a trainer next month to get her ready to be shown this
spring, just to get her used to different things. I will be
able to get some good shots of her then...
Fine Gold Broker aka Barney saying good-bye to Fred at The Capital
Classic Horse Show in Maryland when we dropped him off with his new
I received the papers today-Barney is doing great-he and Chester are
like book ends-I will try to send pictures. He is such a
wonderful young man-so soft and gentle. I know you miss him
but he is really loved here by all. Hope all is well w/ you
and your herd-if you come to FL please try to come visit.
Thank you again for sharing your lovely horses w/ me.
Congratulations on Revered King!
Just wanted to say congrats on getting Revered King. I actually
saw her sire race a few times, including when he won the Guineas at
Newmarket and when he broke down in the Derby. He really was a
fantastic racehorse. I just recently bought a dual registered
Jockey Club/APHA mare and am just waiting for her to get shipped up
here. I've always wanted a blingy mare and now I finally have one
Revered King aka Candy
I just wanted to let
you know that Candy looks BEAUTIFUL! I could kill myself for letting her
go but at least she went to a great home!
I am dying to see her 2008 foal.
Best of luck,
Fact Not Rumors's Owner comes for a Visit from California
I enjoyed meeting you and meeting Facts in person. He looks great and
appears to be enjoying his first year of life on your farm. The pictures
did not appear to come out that good when I viewed them on Nelson's
phone. I will ask him to email them to me.

day job and is really a gentleman at the shows. Its amazing to

when he started last year. I am so proud of him and cant wait
for next year.
Thank you again for my wonderful MAN,
He truly is something special.
Take Care and Have a Great Holiday, :)
Darla by Issue Of
Registered Breeding Stock Paint
Darla is out of my paint mare (by Scriber) that we bred to Issue
of Gold in 2000. Darla is a 2001 model, so she is 6 years old now.
I kept her for breeding and brought her to Wisconsin when I moved here.
She has lived turned out. She is big, pretty, an easy keeper
and a lovely mover and she would make a nice hunter project I
would call her 15.3 without putting a stick on her.
Side Note, This mare is for
sale, for a very, very reasonable price. Please call Bridget Perry
@ 540-668-9095 for price and more details on this lovely mare. NO
e-mail!!! You must pick up a phone and call for more info!
The Breeding That You Do is Remarkable!
Phone Card By
My name is Denise and I came by your web site because we had a
wonderful horse come to my 4-H program about two years ago. I found
the picture of her as a little filly and was so impressed. I thought
you might like to see how she looks now. Phone Card aka Phoebe is
wonderful and I have been working with her as a special project in
I was sorry to read about her sire Gold Card and your recent lose.
He seemed like a wonderful stallion. It appears that Phoebe (Phone
Card) has the same disposition and she is a wonderful mover.
I took her into the equine program and started working with her.
Because she is a wonderful animal I brought her to my trainer who is
helping me get her trained. She presently is working on some
training level dressage. I will definitely keep you posted and when
we start jumping her I will get you some pictures .Please feel free
to post any pictures on your web site.
Your animals are beautiful and Phoebe is a love she is very happy
and being well cared for. I will keep you posted on her progress.
She looks a lot likes her Dad and I hope that she can carry on in
good form. She moves wonderfully and is very strong in her hind end.
You do a great job with your breeding.
I just lost one of my favorite horses here
at Camp as well and I know how much it hurts. Please keep in touch I
think your farm is wonderful and the breeding that you do is
remarkable. The different colors that you are able to achieve in
your breeding is very unique.

Your Lovely Mare Lizzie
I've just been looking at your website and read that you lost your

you're anything like me it's a little like losing a family member,
especially after having them for so long!
My thoughts are with you!
All the best,

Condolences on Gold Card
I was tooling around your site this am, checking out the
updated pics of all your beautiful babies, and I saw Smokey's page.
I am so so sorry. I know he was extremely special to you.
Words can not express what that must have been like, and I am sure
how it continues to be. My deepest condolences to you and
Anyway, I hope all else is well.

Gold Card Admire!
My condolences to you
and your family on the loss of Gold Card. Only just finding out, I am
deeply saddened by this great loss. I had admired Gold Card for a number
of years, and canít help but think of him every time I go to the stable.
The boy I have currently is a buckskin tobiano Dutch WB cross. In many
ways I see him and Gold Card being kindred spirits. Maybe in time, weíll
be able to train him to the same levels Gold Card competed at. Again, my
sympathies and prayers are with you all.

Your Horses are gorgeous!
I just had to e-mail and tell you I think your site is very nice.
Your horses are gorgeous! I raise quarter horses and don't know a
lot about thoroughbreds but yours are beautiful, especially the palomino
baby with the three white stockings that you had on equine.com named
Facts Not Rumors! It's obvious how much time you spend on your
site and your horses.
Hats off to you!

magnificent. He is attracting a lot of attention."

Couldn't be happier with my Zillionair colt!
another race trainer out at the farm there to look at a Kafwain 2yo
filly (his sale averages have been 108k for his 2yo fillies) and do
you know who the Lexington Trainer called me to buy?! My 2007
Zillionair colt! I was out of town and got a call from him
while he was there looking.. his first words were "who is this
palomino colt by, and how much for him!" ha.. I told him it was a
registered TB and he of course would not believe me. So then I had
to tell him all about Zilly a Round Table descendant and all about
Happy and her nice race record and he was thrilled... he said it is
the most perfect and handsome colt he has seen and just went on for
about 5 minutes about how the colt had such presence about him and
was just as handsome and correct as could be. He told me I needed to
for sure race him if I was not going to sell him, and he agreed that
I should leave him a colt. He really thought he was something
special.. so that made my day. I was thinking all those things
but worried I had my mommy goggles on. :o)
Couldn't be happier with him!

Bridget, here are the pictures of your beautiful horses.
Not too long ago, we met on the side of the road while I was taking
pictures of your horses. As promised, and certainly not in a
timely manner, the pictures will come from a different email
in my haste, you will see some are blurry. In my excitement, I
didn't adjust the camera for the correct focus. In any case,
here they are. If you want the originals, I can certainly drop
Your horses are
truly beautiful, and it was my pleasure to take the pictures.
I love horses, and I hope I wasn't violating any protocol in taking
their pictures. I'm an amateur photographer, and these
pictures are for my pleasure only and not for sale. Please
feel free to use any of them, of course, credit for the photo would
If you'd like
more pictures, I'd be thrilled to come out and take some more.

Tickled Pink with my foals by Zillionair...
yearling filly by Zilly out of Full of Happiness is doing wonderful.
I just had a race trainer out yesterday to look at her for the
prospect or racing and he was impressed. (after getting over the
fact that YES indeed she is a real live registered TB that is yellow
and white and not a lead pony) He said she was very correct, had a
nice athletic walk and he would accept her into his training
program. He asked about the stallion and I told him he was a VA show
horse! ha.. I was worried he would think I was nuts.. but to my
surprise he said that it really doesn't matter in the stallions
under 10k range you just base your opinion on the individual you
have, as all those stallions are unproven to put out race stock for
sure. Based on her looks at this time he said she should
suit at some level and would not shy at putting her into training.
He has prepped some of racings top horses for trainers like Bill
Mott and Frankie Brothers.. legging up thier 2yo's, and running some
... so I trust he knows what he was looking at. She will be housed
in a training center here in KY next to Carl Nafzgers stables. (Ky
Derby Fame) So she will have lots of eyes on her! how could they
now our program with her will be race prep until she proves
otherwise. Then would come plan B as a show horse or
If it was possible her full younger
brother (which of course your predicted I would get my colt this
time) is even a notch better. He just has that sparkle to him
that says I'm something special. He is leggy, inquisitive and as
handsome as can be. Extremely well balanced like the filly and just
seems prematurely mature. He is the biggest on the farm.
I resticked the mare and she is 16hands.. but her foals are looking
to be more in the 16.1 and better range at maturity. Right now the
colt will not be for sale. He is looking to be the exact dark gold
with white mane and tail I wanted and all the chrome.. so I may
coddle him along to be my show horse for eventing.
Tickled pink with my foals by
Zillionair.. Sure do wish he was still on the market for outside
mares. But at least I have the 2!

Good Morning Norsire Farm
I wait with great anticipation for you to post the pictures of
Snow White Lady! I canít explain it but I feel a
tremendous connection with this filly and I havenít even seen her. I do
wish I had the means to purchase her, but sadly I donít see how that
could happen at this time in my life.
Wishing you all
the best in your endeavors of raising and breeding horses
especially the most beautiful ones!

WOW!!! Solid Gold Coin's New Photos!
Oh, Bridget, he looks wonderful!!!
Oh, now I really do want to cry!!!
In fact, all of them are
just such top quality - I don't think I've ever come across a herd
that all look like peas in a pod like yours do - incredible!
All I can say is 'you must be doing something right'!!
And tell Fred to stop
cuddling all those babies - he'll have them all like soft teddy
bears (awww! Cute!).
Keep in touch, and thanks

The Gold Fox making Head Lines in England!
Horse and Hound ran the article in last week's edition on The Gold Fox.
There is an onlinecopy available at :
We have also added a short video clip
of him to his page on our site. It's only
a 40x20m arena so not really big enough to show off his paces properly
does show how beautiful he is!!
Yes we'll buy a dilute mare for him, may be next year though as we have
a lot on our property in France this year.
PS Wish Fred all the best from us, we're sure he'll do you proud!

Trillionair's First Foal Arrived
Thought you would like to know that Snowy's (Trillionair's) first
foal arrived last night. It's out of our best producing mare, a
palomino Canadian WB mare by the Hanoverian stallion Wodan II. We
got a huge and correct CREMELLO colt, with 4 white socks and a
star!!! We are very happy with him. Would have been nicer to have
the same thing in a filly but maybe next year....
Snowy is doing great by the way. Will get broken after breeding
season and hopefully start showing. A few more babies yet to come

Greetings from the Sunshine State-
Congratulations on Snow White Lady!
In November í06 I ran across your website in search of a pure
white thoroughbred horse and found Our White Lady. She is magnificent
and I am so glad to see she delivered her filly (and of all days, on my
wedding anniversary!). The delivery date is very ironic (to me) as my
husband and I almost made a trip to VA to visit your farm over our
anniversary weekend, but we didnít plan it out.
I now know we most definitely will make a trip up sometime.
I used to ride hunters when I was in my teens and would love to get back
Congratulations again to you both! I can tell from
your website you truly love what you do and are living your dream.

Foxy Blonde Lady by Pure White Gold out of Tassolette
Hi Friends and Clients,
Fred and I wanted to show you some of
the training that goes into a foal purchased from Norsire Farm.
This is Foxy Blonde Lady at 5 days old leading like a pro!!! Fred
and I are very proud of ALL of our foals and wanted to share an example
of our hard work. Fred and I both love working with the babies
from the moment they are born. We want our foals to be well
adjusted when they arrive at their new homes and have the basics of
everyday handling of horses in general.
Warm wishes to all,
Fred & Bridget

Solid Gold Coin
From Jane in England
And talk about timing - the DVD
came today - it had been put into my neighbours mailbox by mistake,
and she has been away on holiday for the past 2 weeks!!! So
the mystery is solved!
I just wanted you to know
that I have seen the video, and Coin is absolutely everything you
have described and more - he would have been exactly what I wanted
and was looking for, and in fact he actually moves MUCH better than
I had ever hoped for. He is wonderful and a great credit to
you and your breeding programme - I am now even more upset about
this awful situation as I can see what should/could have been mine
and it breaks my heart!! I think Karen Dixon would most
certainly have approved of him for top level eventing and I don't
doubt his ability to do pure dressage to a very high level - he
really does seem to have the most incredible temperament, especially
for a colt.
Bridget, when all of this is
over here at home and life is settled again, I will most definitely
be back in touch with you - you have described Coin so perfectly and
I want to thank you again for all of your time, patience and
honesty, and even though I'm now no longer in the position to go
ahead with him myself, I will make sure that I recommend you
to all of my friends that may be looking for potential top class
sport horses - regardless of colour!!
Please feel free to hand out
my telephone number/email address to anyone who would like a
reference or an opinion regarding your horses - I would be delighted
to recommend you!
All best wishes, and please
give Coin a big hug from me!!

A Quick Note From England
The Gold Fox by Pure White Gold
out of Tassolette
A quick note with picture attached of The Gold Fox playing in his
paddock. He has settled in with us beautifully and is very much a part
of the family already. He still has the same easy manner which I
loved as a foal when I first saw him at your farm and really is a
pleasure to hang out with generally.
Haven't measured him since he arrived but he is big - would guess at
approx. 15.2 hands but he may well be bigger...we're in denial! 16.3 or
17 hands at maturity will be quite sufficient thank-you we keep telling
him!! His full sibling from this year looks fab, is she crossing the
We are in the midst of our stud season here (as I'm sure you are too)
and Fox is already attracting a lot of interest from our customers for
next year. He is looking really well and people seem genuinely amazed
when told he is only a yearling!
Finally, a big thank you for making me so welcome when I visited you
last Autumn. It was such a treat to meet Fox and all his extended family
in person. Your stud facilities are inspirational and it was a
delight to see so many contented horses.

Gold Tycoon Best Young Horse Champion
by Zillionair out of Lizzie
Well your boy has done
you proud! Gold Tycoon made his debut at the Mileview Breeding Show
today, Sunday April 22nd, 2007. All I can say is WOW! Ty
won the Yearling TB class udner both judges. He was also Best
Young Horse Champion under Judge #1 and was Best Young Horse Reserve
Champion under Judge #2. He was the talk of the show!
He is absolutely perfect in my eyes, and it seems that others shared
this opinion as well. He loved the camera and all the attention!

Zillionair Offspring Are Winning!
Congratulations! I am so
happy for you! You deserve this, and more. As I told you
before, you are, as far as I am concerned, the TOP COLOR BREEDER
when it comes to correct quality horses! Now everyone else
will have to acknowledge that you are, whether they like it or not.
For all of us who have bought your quality babies, it is a feather
in your cap but it also validates our decision to invest in
top-quality blood for the future. You go girl!

Gorgeous Palomino Colt By Zillionair
She had a colt!
you are so smart.. nailed that one didn't you! He was born last night a
good size boy up and nursing just fine.
He's pretty cute.. his ears are
always forward and happy... he seems very friendly.. his face is a
touch more dishy than the filly's, which is his full sister by
Zillionair. I love his slender blaze... and he has 2 back
whites they are only 1/2 up the cannon in the rear.. and a front
ankle for sure. he is pretty leggy, seems very smart. I love
his overall balance and shape and that is rare for me.. I really
don't like many foals... and am pretty picky overall with horses in
general... few that I think are keepers.. but he may be one.
I like him well enough at this time I
plan to keep him and race him, then after his race career event him.
I will leave him a stud as long as I can.. if he mentally can not handle
that or shows to not be good enough quality then I will cut him.

Porcelain out of Golden China Doll By Gold Card
I recently purchased a 2004 filly called Porcelain, out of Golden
China Doll (Gold Card/Elvir). While searching for information on
Porcelain's sire, I found your question about Porcelain in the Houston
Chronicle forum when she was offered at the Sport Horse auction in
Katy, TX last November. I was thrilled to get confirmation of
Porcelain's pedigree as her dam is not listed as being one of Gold
Card's offspring on your website.
I attended that auction, but was not able to bid. However, through
fortuitous circumstances, I was able to purchase her 2 weeks later!
If you are interested in making contact with me, I would be happy to
share information with you about Porcelain and send you photos so you
can see how beautiful she is and how much like her grandsire she looks
in conformation, to me at least.

Aussie White Gold
by Issue Of Gold out of Our White Lady (AUS)
His form over fences is that of a Hunter Champion!
wanted to send you this spectacular picture of Aussie from his first
show,ever, in Temperance Michigan. He was only 5 at the time,
and took a blue ribbon in his very first class, over fences,
in a class of 25 .(Later that day, he added 3 thirds to his tally.)
Not bad for a baby at his first show---eh???
Howard of Fox Meadow Farm is the trainer who is riding him, and as
you can see, she was able to showcase his natural abilities,
beautifully. His lead changes have always been effortless, for him,
....and many people have commented on what a beautiful mover he is.
Aussie is smart, light,responsive....and lives to please.
later trainer referred to him as her "overachiever". Aussie thinks
jumping is great fun...and is a joy to be around.
Sometimes when I see pictures of babies you have bred, who are
related to him---I see that "look" in their eyes....and I know
in my heart that their new owners are in for a big treat! I
can't wait to hear the testimonials on all of them-----but am
especially waiting for big news on "Solid Gold Coin"! Thanks
again, for my very special boy!

Fox is doing great and has been an instant hit with us and all who
have met him. He has a lovely gentle disposition and is zero trouble

I will pass your message on to the boy as requested and yes we are
really quite smitten with him :-)))

I just wanted to thank you again for allowing me the honor of visiting
your farm and photographing your beautiful horses. Your horses are
truly magic, and the care you put both into them and your farm shines
The racing magazine, The Blood-Horse, just ran a short pictorial
on colored Thoroughbreds and, thanks to you, it included a two-page
spread of your colorful Thoroughbreds galloping. I shall
always remember the beauty of that day.
I look forward to seeing all of your 2007 arrivals as their photos
appear on your website. You do a great job with your site,
too! It's always fun to visit it.
Take good care,

Update On Misplaced Gold
By Issue Of Gold out of Queen Debonair
I was just looking at your website and thought I'd give you an update on
Misplaced Gold aka Rani. I attached a picture of her at her first
3-phase schooling show last October. She did tadpole and jumped
her 2ft stadium and xcountry rounds clean. She was so calm
and quiet the whole time. She has been one of the easiest horses
to be around and I just absolutely adore her. She will be 4 years
old in March 2007 and I can't believe how fast time has gone by. I
just love her to death and she will definitely be in my family forever.
Take care...looking forward to all the new babies!
Hey my name is Meghan Young and I've followed your site for several
years. When I was younger, I used to surf the internet just to look at
some of the most beautiful horses in the world. Tonight I was sitting
with my puppy and I remembered your site and decided to check it out
(It's been a couple of years). I didn't even recognize Ebony Gold
Orchid, she was my favorate foal of that year, I would absolutely kill
to have her. I just wanted to let you know that I admire your property
(pastures, barns, etc) and your horses, they are gorgeous.

Hiden Gold Mystery and Posey
Posey is doing great and everyone just loves her.
Just thought I'd let you know. We found 2 awesome thoroughbreds.
My girlfriend, mother of the girl that got Posey, is a quarter horse
person and never thought she would own a thoroughbred either. How
I ponied Mystery yesterday and she was a doll. We just love her to

Girl's Christmas Wish Come True
Just wanted to let you know that Bill, you and I made a little girls
Christmas wish come true.
Posey is now in
Bellefonte. She is lovely. Thanks again for your email.
I saw Gold Tycoon. He's beautiful. I'll have to get a
gallery of pictures together of Mystery for you.
Take care, and Merry Christmas.
Thank you very much for giving me posey. I am 13 and I really don't have
a lot of money to buy an expensive horse like Posey. This was a once in
a lifetime chance for me. Thank you very much.
I got an e-mail about her from Cathy Nardozzo. She heard about her from
Bridget of Norsire farm. My mother looked at the e-mail first and told
Cathy that she didn't want the foal because we can't afford another
board. I got the e-mail and I thought she was just adoreable! My mom
said if I came up with the money I could ask about her. I made some
phone calls and I have a babysitting job ( I'm looking for another job
too ). I arranged to board her where my pony is boarded. I called Cathy
and she said she thought someone was looking at her. I was so
dissapointed but she said she would check. I did e-mail you the other
day about Posey. Cathy called Bridget and she said no one had gotten her
yet. I couldn't believe it when Cathy told me that you were giving her
to me. She will get the best care.
I am going to show Posey production in 4-H next year. I just want
you to know how grateful I am to have such a nice horse. Thank you. If
you want I will keep you updated on how she is doing!

Gold Halo by Zillionair out of Sunny's Colors
I am extremely embarrassed these have been floating around in the
internet ethers for so long, but glad the system is finally working.
The fillies we purchased from you last year are all in great shape,
we put the horses before people here, as you know. I am still
battling to finish the finance project here, and still hope to be
able to do some more horse business with you. Have a good
True Buckskin Halo by Zillionair
Buckskin Thoroughbred Offered
At Public Auction
Zuni, VA, November 27,
2006 - P P Farm LLC is excited to announce that it has consigned the
first genetically certified buckskin-colored Thoroughbred to public
auction at the 2006 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Winter Mixed Sale, to be held
Dec. 3-4, in Timonium, MD.
"You rarely see a buckskin colored filly for sale at all because
breeders have always considered them a priceless part of their breeding
program, "says Lisa C, owner of P P Farm and breeder of True Buckskin
Halo. Out of the hundreds of thousands of registered Thoroughbreds in
North America, only a few dozen are known to be buckskin in color.
True Buckskin Halo has been genetically proven as buckskin through DNA
analysis testing performed at the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory of the
University of California at Davis. (More information available at
True Buckskin Halo is sired by Zillionair, a cremello colored
Thoroughbred that is a "double dilute" for the crŤme gene. This gene
gives True Buckskin Halo her color as it dilutes her base color of bay
to golden, while retaining the black mane, tail, and legs that are
trademarks of the bay color
The Jockey Club, the pedigree registry for the Thoroughbred, does not
officially recognize "buckskin" as a color. As a result, True Buckskin
Halo is currently registered as a bay. Lisa C, however, remains hopeful
that the color will soon be recognized. "Other rare colors such as white
and palomino have recently gained recognition and we believe the Jockey
Club will do the same for buckskin,"Lisa C stated.
True Buckskin Halo is out of Messenger of Light, who is by the legendary
racing sire Halo. True Buckskin Halo has a full brother, Debonair Envoy,
also buckskin in color, who was sold privately, and a two-year-old half
sister by Waquoit that just made her first start at Charles Town Race
True Buckskin Halo will be presented at auction through the well-known
sales agent in Warwick, Maryland.
The Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Winter Mixed Sale will take place at the
Maryland State Fair Grounds in Timonium, MD on December 3 and 4, 2006.

I am so grateful to have met you. You are
a true horseperson in every sense of the word. Your tireless effort
and attention to detail is amazing. You are on top of your
game, and I can't wait to see the babies in 2007! If any
of your mares ( it doesn't matter which one cause' they're all
awesome ) pop out a boy, I want the first phone call. That
means you need to be dialing that phone before you do anything!
Thanks for taking such good care of "Ty"!
I can't wait for all of us to be showing next year!

John Wayne's Gold out of Lizzie
I still go to your website from time to time and dream!
I will try to send on a picture of Johnny. My laptop has nothing
in it that I can forward now, but I'll see what I can dig up on my
Johnny is retired, but very happy. He and my older boy have seven
acres, private quarters and of course, maid service. He has the
best temperament of any horse on the planet! And he's BIG. A
big-boned 16.2 - the shire came through on him!

okay..so how tall did you say Zilly is?!!!
okay.. so how tall did you say Zilly is?!!! My filly has grown and
grown.. she is the tallest in the field of the 12 and most of those were
out of really big mares born in February! She was born in April I think
it was... and her mother is only 15.3 hands.
she may be
a really big girl it appears.
local and international polo player combination race trainer was out and
he could not believe she was a pure TB.. he was there when I was not out
there.. he called me... said what is up wiht that big palomino
weanling.. it looks like a TB, what is it?! I told him and he about fell
over.. I have not told many around about her yet.. took him 3 minutes of
talk to get him to believe me... ha... never thought about promoting
colored TB's in the polo market.... They just adore TB fillies but
prefer them small.
having naming troubles... any ideas... full of Happiness the dam.
Zillionaire the sire.

Thanks For Your Hospitality Today
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your hospitality
today. All the babies looked amazing. Of course I am most
crazy about Ty and Iris. What a cute pair they make. It
would be a blast for Bill and I to do them together. We are
currently doing that with our Zarr siblings Bucky and Bunny. We
won our get of sire class at Upperville this year.
Bill e-mailed the pictures. They were awesome. Thanks for
the updated buzz photo.
Hope all is well. Enjoyed our visit. Looking foward to
hearing from you.

Just A Quick Note
Just wanted to let you know that Mystery is doing very well. She
understands electric fence and hasn't had any trouble. She is such
a doll baby. We just love her.
I'll have to get some new pictures and send them. Her mane is very
light now. It's amazing how quickly it changed. When I
put her out in the morning after she eats, she just stands there and
wants to be petted. Jaharah, her new best friend, will be walking
off and she'll stick around for her morning lovin.

Hiden Gold Mystery, A Dream Come True...
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that
I would own a Thoroughbred. I placed the call to Bridget and she
persuaded me to come and just look. It never hurts to look.
So the next day, my daughter, husband and I packed up and drove to
Virginia. When we arrived, Bridget had Mystery ready for us to
see. At first I was a little leary. She was acting up a bit.
I asked Bridget about her being hot and she told me it was only the 2nd
time she had taken her away from her herd. I couldn't believe that
the only thing she did was shake her head a little, and with the
slightest correction, was behaving remarkable well.
After a total of 1/2 hour, we decided to buy Hiden Gold Mystery.
She is absolutely beautiful and if you never take a chance at something,
you loose out on life. So we took that chance.
We drove down the next week to pick her up. She had only been on a
ramp load trailer once. We had a step up. She was kindly
pushed onto the step up with very little resistance, and never had any
kind of reaction whatsoever. Any other horse I ever dealt with
would have been traumatized. She rode home with only 1 whinny
about 1/2 hour away from her friends and was very stable in the trailer.
Never kicked, or wrestled around at all.
When we returned home, all of my horses were running around like
banshees, and Mystery quietly walked off the trailer and to the barn.
When she is not sure of something, she stands and looks. Never
have I seen her react in any crazy way whatsoever. She
literally thinks about things. Taking things slowly and letting
her figure them out, is the best approach, for her and all horses.
I can't say enough about this filly. She is absolutely wonderful,
loving, sensible and beautiful in so many ways. She will be a huge
part of our lives for a very long time.
Again, I am so glad I bought this little Thoroughbred. I told my
daughter never say never. I did, and look what came of it.
