Our own 16 hand Grulla Paint gelding, "STETSONS WEST COUNTRY" (out of Stetson West and our mare Cash Printer) has an update from his owner Emily Carmey of Michigan. In her own words... "I emailed you a while back about my horse "Cash" that came from your farm. I just wanted to give you a little update on his progress :) You should take great pride in the bloodline you have perfected because Cash is amazing. He is almost 5 now and from personality to movement he has it all. We showed this past October at the Buckskin Congress and placed top in everything we went in! (including Western and English Pleasure) I have attached pictures from the show. God bless. -Emily Carmey"... **The competition in this association also includes AQHA horses.**

Congratulations to Maureen Christopher on the purchase of Color Me Quick Cash - aka 'Trendy' - it was a very difficult decision to let him go, but he has gone to the best home possible and everyone at Spotted Fawn is excited about his future. There isn't any other stud in the world like him with his rare genetics and fabulous depth of breeding, he is one in a million!

In her own words, Maureen recently wrote... "We absolutely love Trendy. He is well into the training program and is a natural. Eber loves him. We have 5 mares in foal to him for 2016. Can't wait to see these babies. He is a gentleman to handle, has no bad habits. We are going to take 5 outside mares to him in 2016. His book will be limited as we want to keep him in training also. I just wanted to keep you posted. Hope this finds you well and happy. My Best Always, Maureen"

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

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.

...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.

Another happy client of her horse from the Spotted Fawn Paint Ranch and her story......(July 2013) I own a horse named Hollywood in Color, that was bred by you. He is a dream, I have never had such a wonderful horse, he was my son's horse for a couple of years and now volunteers with me at a PATH International certified therapeutic riding center. He is such an amazing horse that I am considering purchasing a foal from you and was wondering if you had any foals left and one that may also someday have the disposition to be a therapy horse/family horse. If you have nothing available this season, I would love to stay in touch with you on your 2014 foals. I just can't tell you how much we love this horse and what joy he brings to the disabled children he serves, he knows that his work is important and he takes awesome care of his rider and then loves to have a little fun on the trail or playing around in the arena with mom. Kimberly Caplinger of Lebanon, Ohio

Another success story of the versatility that the Spotted Fawn Paint horses are known for. Our horse MONEY was sold to a client who is taking him to great heights in an 'all around' performer who does it all and at a young age. Congratulations EMILY COOK!

In her own words, this just came in: "Everyone is amazed at him sleeping at the barrel races and then I have to wake him up to go run. He is a very level headed horse with the arena and competition and it has spoiled me for sure. I am still using him for ranch work and he is good at that. I love the speed he has to chase after a bad cow and get them turned in the right direction and he doesn't ever quit me. I am still super happy that I decided to buy Money. I really enjoy him and he has taught me lots. I am going to share a couple videos from this year running barrels. He came a long ways this year and I am super excited to see what we will do next year. I am happy with where we ended up in a series this year. We won two buckles in his first year running barrels. Emily"

One of our stallions,"COLOR ME BOON" (by an own son of Color Me Smart and a daughter of Shots Flying Spark) sold to Dr. Cynthia Furse, Associate Vice President for Research & Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Utah who wrote the following with the above pic... ************* ************* *********** *************** ************* *********** ****** Boon IS doing well. He now generally comes when I call, is neck reining a good portion of the time, moving off leg almost all the time. And (hooray hooray!) he always gets in the trailer with no issue whatsoever. He is happy to be out on the trail, leading, following, whatever. He was quite hyped on the cattle drive at first, even before we got to the cows. By the end of the day, I think someone said it was 17 miles they did, though I thought it was more like 12, he had it dialed in, was voluntarily keeping his part of the herd together and moving and was no longer fretting about the chaos or the other horses.We drove the herd of about 200 cows down the freeway with big Walmart trucks having to ˜wait up for us, a motorcycle helping with the herding, and all of the commotion of more people and vehicles. Then through the edge of town, past the houses and lawns. It was a pretty big day for him, not so much in distance, but in concentration, and he was really happy to cut loose and roll in his pasture. Boon is super easy to train, even with my minimal experience, and is confident of about anything. Today we rode about 15 miles around a reservoir with 3 friends. Anyway, thought you'd enjoy his further adventures. Cindy
