Brandy is a big, bold, balanced yearling filly that is eager to have a new
owner to give her the attention she craves and deserves. These photos here were taken September 8th, 2006, with her
directly out of the pasture. She is over weight and unfit, yet you can still see her quality thru and thru.
The proverbial "ugly duckling" here ... she just get's better and better with each passing month.
Her dam is a very imposing mare, being an honest 15.2+ hands with a stout
build (and breath-taking movement). We just measured Brandy at an *honest* 15.0 hands as a long yearling (short foot,
no shoe), with alot of growing yet to do. Not only does she possess the heigth that is in such demand now, she has the
body and elegance that is unusual to find together. Her sire (Escanaba) was an extremely refined and elegant individual
and we think this crossed on her dam gave us a "dream result". Brandy is truly a physical example of her breeding,
a blend that one can only hope for.
Handled daily since birth, she has a good foundation on her. There
isn't too much she doesn't do: clipping, farrier, bathing, loading, stalling, ties, blankets, etc. She is very sensible
and sane in nature, especially with guidance from a confident, quiet person. No vices what-so-ever!
With age she is really growing into herself. Her eye is getting expressive
and her head starting to fit her frame. What once seemed like alot of bone is beginning to balance out her size and
frame. Brandy has always had ideal ears (thanks to her sire) ... they are crisp and beautifully shaped. Frosting
on the cake is her near red silver color and minimal sabino markings (funky facial white with white extending well onto bottom
lip and one jagged hind sock).
Her athletic ability must be seen to be appreciated. She is a very
elastic mover with plenty of suspension and impulsion naturally ... this comes from her rich maternal Flyhawk blood no doubt.
Up-hill loft to her canter that is sure to be a dream to ride. Altho she is very sensible she can really put on the
show as well, with her head up and tail flagged ... for a big girl she doesn't lack grace or kinnectic aptitude. Photos
will never be able to capture her athletic ability and I encourage people to see her in person for the full picture.
I sold her dam to a good friend and intended to keep Brandy for future replacement
use in the breeding shed and show ring. However, my interests have changed and it just isn't practical to keep such
a nice filly here, unutilized. Her quality is far too deep to sit in a paddock unappreciated and unproven.
