My wonderful mare-Sweet Charity -( Trakehner /Thoroughbred)
and her first foal- Star Of David -(Trakehner - Holstein)
She had three foals -and was a wonderful-kind-'soft spoken' Mother---
I painted this water color in 1995 or 1996-
My dream was to breed fine horses- she had three-
Star of David and Sweet Independence (Trakehner / Oldenburg) (her second) are 'stars'--in the disciplines of jumping and dressage...
Her third-Sir Benjamin (Trakenhner/ Welsh Cob) is a star in my back yard!!!--I will never sell him---I may lease him to a Pony Clubber--because he loves to work and needs a job!!!
Someday I'll tell you the story about the Trakehner breed---and why it is the only breed which assumes the first letter of the Mother's (Mare's) name rather than the first letter of the father's (Stallion's) name - as do most other breed registries.
Happy Mother's Day to my awesome warrior friends!!!!
