A Spotted Fawn colt.... Yep you read that right! Derringer got awarded a Grand Champion and Reserve champion and two blue ribbons. Our first event of the day was Showmanship. All older horses were in the class besides Derringer. For his being his first year and him being only a year and a half, he won over almost all the other horses and got a Reserve champion. I was very very happy with him. He responded nicely to everything i was doing. Our next one was the yearling showmanship in hand and got a blue ribbon. The next event was the trail in hand, which he was a total dreamboat. He responded to everything perfect which we were awarded the grand Champion. We also had a yearling evaluation which he got a blue ribbon. I was very pleased with him. We got many complements on how great he was! I am surely blessed with the best!

Summer of 2017 in Germany of our special mare Timeless and her dun paint foal out of Stetson West: We had a breeding show yesterday and I showed Timeless and her new filly (BC Tru Lakota Spirit aka Haley J). Timeless was included into the PHCGâ€™s breeding book for mares (PHCG = Paint Horse Club Germany) and Haley won the filly class. She has grown quite big. Resembles her father very much. Many greetings from Germany and special regards from Timeless, Tanja
....Another winner from Spotted Fawn... Hi Wendy, Just wanted to share a couple of photos that we finally got to take of Patriot (Cokito X Aztec Eagle) at a show this past Sunday. The photos are with his trainer on board. He did very well this weekend for being so young and she received mostly all 8's and the judge commented that he was capable of 9's with experience. I also showed him for the first time and we were 1st out of 4 in Intro Test 1 with a score of 68.863. Not bad for our first time out together. Kathie Pacheco...FLORIDA
...A Big Gunner colt sold to Texas, now a yearling.... Here's Sheriff (Banjo) his first time to get a saddle. He did absolutely great with it. He didn't try anything, never got scared. Sheriff is the most laid back horse I have ever owned. To be 18 months he acts like a 15 year old horse. He is so lovable, I catch myself loving on him so much I just can't help it. We absolutely love him! Thank you so much Wendy! Your horses are the best hope you enjoy the picture. We will be sending some pictures of Slade soon.
Two Spotted Fawn colts out of Stetson West now growing up: Last night was our town Halloween parade. Told the boys we would ride the horses through since they were so excited about it. So we decorated the horses like Indian war horses my friend Katie and I were cowgirls my youngest Keith was an Indian warrior and my oldest KJ was Spider-Man. Pretty good for a stallion whose 2 years old and hasn't been saddled in 10 weeks, took him in the parade rode him with a three-year-old on with me he never once looked at anything walk through like he's been doing it every day of his life. Another reason why I love your horses. We were even riding behind ambulances that had their lights on maybe a distance of 15 ft in front of us, have I ever told you how much I love these horses. Here's some pics for you to enjoy hope everything's going well at the ranch love you. Liz from PA.

From Medea Maclean in Nova Scotia... "Hello Wendy, I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you how wonderful QTS Rhinestone Cowboy truly is. 'Stone' and I recently attended a big clinic in our area and he was a rockstar. Never put a foot wrong and now has a fan club lol. He is an incredibly kind and generous horse. Any issues were all pilot error lol and he is so forgiving."
"I am getting ready to start 'Song' of the Dove under saddle this winter. I really have no words to explain her personality. She is beautiful inside and out. The kindest and most loving filly ever. Thank-you so much for these horses, Medea"
From Corinne Leslie...owner of the Los Angeles, CA., Olympic Equestrian Center: Thought you'd like to see a picture of JJ Flash (Timeless X Stetson West) without a saddle so you could see how beautiful he is. Doing amazing in both jumping and cow sorting! You are breeding not only beautiful horses but super athletes too.
