PLENTY O-PLAUDIT aka "POPPI" is our very special boy. Born in 1993, you would not be able to guess his age by looking at him. Linda (Kelli's mom) bought Poppi for Kelli on his first birthday when she was 13 years old. His breeding includes Prince Plaudit and some of the all time great Appaloosas that have been inducted into the Appaloosa Hall of Fame. He was Kelli's show horse for 13 years and she grew up with him in 4-H and the Appaloosa Circuit. He has won so many titles and awards, we can't list them all here. One of the most honorable things he has done includes helping Kelli's best friend cope with the death of her father. Poppi was her 4-H project for one year and helped her learn and grow as a person and a rider. He is a special horse and Kelli credits him for helping her be the horse woman she is today. Poppi enjoys his semi-retirement by teaching children how to care for and ride a horse. Poppi loves to be pampered and fussed over by the kids, and he lives the life of a King.
PLAYGIRL PREMONITION aka "FANCI" or "mama cita" was born in 2000. Fanci helped Kelli achieve the dream of having a foal born at the Ranch. Fanci gave birth to a gorgeous colt on March 14th 2009. Fanci has been a teacher for many and Kelli feels she owes many of the things she has learned about training a horse to her. We bought her as a 4 year old with 30 days of under saddle training. For 6 months, Kelli took lessons from Rene Gagnon and he helped get her on the right track. After that, all of her training came from Kelli and what she has accomplished with her has been a dream come true. She has many year end awards and day end awards with multiple associations and can now add broodmare to the list of things she can do. Fanci loves to show and excels in HUS, WP and Halter events.
ISA HYFASHION TESIGN aka "ROSWELL" is our little dream that has taken physical form. Born in 2009, he has been everything we ever hoped for. He is a registered Quarter Horse and Pinto. You know who is mama is. His daddy is OBVIOUS TESIGN out of TESIGNED TO TANGO. He has major champion halter lines on both sides, but we also hope he can become our western pleasure horse as well. He has been to many horse shows as a weanling and yearling, and has a 3rd place win in an AQHA Weanling Halter Futurity at the NYSQHA September Futurity in New York. He was the best behaved and happy baby on the show grounds. He is striking in his looks and has the movement we look for in a WP prospect. He is very lazy and would rather sleep than work, just like his mama. We have reached so many goals in the last six years, it has been an amazing journey.
HEZ DUN DOIN TIME aka "CODI" is registered with the AQHA and IBHA. The plan was not to buy him, but to show him for a good friend and get him sold for her. But after showing him at one show and spending time with him, he was destined to live with us. Codi was born in 2003 and has quite the personality! He is just a very sweet boy and loves to do his job in the show ring. Once you put the bit in his mouth, he says "show me my job, I am ready to work for you". Professionally trained in western pleasure and hunter under saddle, he is a treat to watch on the rail and even more of a treat to ride. Codi won many year end awards in 2010 with NABA and IBHA. Plans for 2011 include showing on the NABA and IBHA circuit and perfecting his showmanship and trail skills. Codi can now add competitive trail horse to his list of abilities as well! What a wonderful all arounder!
