I erased this section to start over. Sheena is a darling 11.2 hand pony stallion. She is not a registered/pedigreed
mare. Sheena has an interesting background nonetheless. She came from a herd, unknown to most people other than
neighbors here. The herd was put together from small horses and ponies that were brought into the US from Mexico and
Argentina some 60 years ago by a man called "Mr Doty". He had an affection for appaloosa spotted horses and ponies and
he collected about 200 and brought them home to Missouri. The story is long but if anyone reading this is interested
in hearing more, please drop me an email.
Sheena, even without her colorful history, is a
darling pony mare. I often refer to her as my babydoll. She is 11.2 hands. After several years of just speculating,
I finally sent off hair for color testing in 2010. She is a few spot appaloosa, that part is obvious. Every foal
she produces will have some sort of apppaloosa spotting. It was her base color that was baffling. Her test results
are EE Aa N/Z meaning she is Homozygous for black with one agouti gene (bay or brown - those test results are not in yet)
and she is also Silver Dapple.
Sheen has only had foals by our own stallion,
Lil Champagne Tease. They have all been the most colorful, best tempered, intelligent and fun ponies. I fell so
blessed to have such good ponies to share with others.
In order of birth - Doodle
Bop (Classic Champagne Appaloosa colt), Ladybug who is now known as Sally (Black Snowcap filly), Deuce (Classic Champagne/Few
Spot Appaloosa) and in 2010 Sheena surprised us once again with a filly, this time a color I had not expected. Since
we are now certain that Sheena is Silver Dapple on bay or brown, this new filly (KitKat) appears to be Brown Silver Dapple/Snowcap
Appaloosa! Never a common foal from these two! Her brown may have come from her sire since his base color is brown
but we figure if Sheena was bay, then surely she would have produced at least one bay foal by now. We should have our
Enjoy the foal photo's below and let us know if you would like more information
on upcoming foals. We have retained Deuce to determine if he is stallion material but he would be available to the
right home. All of the Champagne foals are ICHR registered.
