Meet Mr. April 2016: Mad Desire

MadDesire

AJ 2016 CALENDAR APRIL FEATURED STALLION

Not many stallions that competed and now stand in the U.S. can say that their first foal crop wasn’t born on U.S. soil, but was in fact born internationally, in Australia. Multiple World and National champion stallion Mad Desire, “Bugsy,” can.

While many probably are not aware, this dream began well before the colt ever stepped foot into the show pen, and in fact began before his return after his yearling year. Facebook friendship between Nicole Wilson and Brooke Flagtwet, now both Stallion Managers of Mad Desire in their respective countries, started as a back and forth of how each others’ horses would cross so well. What started out as friendly small talk slowly began to form into something of substance, and finally led to frozen semen being exported to Australia.

Breedings began selling quickly after the arrival of the first shipment, and with excitement and relief, Mad Desire got every mare pregnant, leading to two foal crops on the ground, and a third on the way in the fall of 2016, which is Australia’s regular foaling season. Because of some girl power backing the colored bay stallion, the dream became a reality for Brooke and Nicole, and the fruits of their labor led to foals on the ground, and in the show pen, with ecstatic owners at the shank. Already, owners of Mad Desire foals are reaping the benefits and walking away from the show pen with blue ribbons in hand; from the Halter Futurities, to the Longe Line and Hunter in Hand. Mad Desire might be a World and National champion halter horse, but he is proving to stamp his foals with exceptional conformation that translates into the performance classes.

While Mad Desire, affectionately known as Bugsy, enjoys the life of a breeding stallion, the stud has returned to looking pristine, and appearing like he just stepped out of the show pen, This is no surprise though, as he is typical of his lineage. TouchDown Kid, Kelo Connects, and Justa Figment, all royalty in their own right, have helped mold the timeless stallion. Some say the only thing that has changed about Bugsy is his color. He does get to rock an untamed mane and recently posed in breeding weight and shape for a photo shoot. Even at age 7, he still looks sharp without any special fitness program.

Mad Desire is available to be seen by visitors at CNC Show Horses of Southern California tucked away in Gavilan Hills. He is nominated to the Breeders Trust, and Best in the West Futurity. He is 16 hands, 5-Panel negative (meaning he carries no genetic diseases), siring color on solid Appaloosa and Quarter Horse mares. As a show horse, Bugsy found consistency in the show arena, earning World and National titles every time shown, along with his Superior in open halter, and siring foals who are now stepping into the show pen and already winning in Australia. His U.S. foals will begin showing in April of this year on the West Coast and other major events, with 2017 foals expected by multiple mares. Visit www.maddesireaphc.com to see more photos of his foals in and out of the arena.

Meet Mr. August 2015: Hands Of A Hero

Mr.Month-HOAH

Hands of A Hero, “Jacquard,” owned by Hopes Creek Ranch in College Station, Texas, is a bright, talented 2006 stallion by their horse All Hands On Zip and out of Strawscootin Suzy.

“We do a [barn] name theme every year and his year was the ‘cloth’ year (chenille, satin, oxford, etc),” said ranch owner Nancy Magnussen.

Jacquard, named after the inventor of a weaving system that automated the production of intricate patterns, passes on his intelligence, show talent, color and height to his offspring. He is currently a high-percent color producer on all mares, and many of his oldest foals are 16.3 hands and growing.

“His babies are correct and balanced with very nice conformation,” Magnussen said. “He throws slow-legged movers with the float and sweep that we like to see in our performance horses.”

One of his foals, Hero In Disguise, has assembled an incredible show record in diverse events this year, including his owner, Pam Hargesheimer, capturing the title of No. 1 Leading The Nation in Masters Hunter Under Saddle.

An excellent show record comes through the training and exhibition skill of Lisa Ligon, followed by Dale Sullens during his last year of showing in 2011. Jacquard compiled an impressive list of accomplishments, at right, including a Superior Event Award in Hunter In Hand Stallions.

Hopes Creek Ranch runs a small but quality operation, with all horses N/N on the five-panel test. Despite only producing eight to 12 foals per year, Hopes Creek Ranch achieved Leading Breeder honors in 2014 for the second year in a row. All foals are NSBA eligible.

Meet Mr. January 2015: The Secret Pardon

Mr.Month2015-TSP

The Secret Pardon, “Diesel,” is a 2008 stallion with perfect form and color, as well as a five-time National Champion and a Reserve National Champion, with three bronze medallions. His pedigree is equally  great, being a grandson of Dreamfinder.

James and Laurie Rylander, DVM, of Sweetwater Farms in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, are the proud owners of this fine stallion.

A significant color producer, Diesel has been verified HYPP N/N, which uphold’s Sweetwater Farms’ commitment to testing for and breeding disease-free horses that will further the breed.

After a successful, enjoyable show career, the Rylanders are pleased to present Diesel for breeding to national and international customers. He is standing at the Schembri’s Char-O-Lot Ranch in Florida for the reduced price of $950; cooled and frozen semen is available.

“Our 2015 stud fee has been lowered to $950 to see if we can stimulate the market,” Rylander said.

One of Diesel’s 2014 fillies was Reserve World Champion Non-Pro Halter Filly and third in Open Weanling Fillies with Ted Turner leading her in a huge class.

Now is the time for the affordable, versatile Appaloosa horse to regain the “spot”light as the preferred breed of choice for showing, trail riding with the family-or a combination of both. Why fit in when you can be spotted on an Appaloosa?

Three of his 18 foals are now 3-year-olds, two of which have won multiple bronze medallions and a silver medallion, as well as several Non-Pro awards with their 60-year-old riders. Many 2-year-olds and yearlings will be competing at the World show.
