Brooklyn has a special place in our hearts because as a weanling, she picked us. She was in a herd of about 10 other foals, everytime we came out to look at them a little more she was always the sweet inquisitive filly that would leave the herd and even her food to come check us out. As we weeded through the herd it became more and more evident which one we would make ours.
Brooklyn is a sweet mare with a curious nature. She has good conformation, broad chest, upright neck, powerful hindquarters with nice impulsion.  She has nice hair for her age, full and thick. 
August 2011 Carrie started Brooklyn's under saddle training.  She has excelled tremendously!!  With only a few weeks of ground work and training Carrie was able to back her one night and rode her at a walk and trot the next, Brooklyn was incredible!  She has a stable and naturally curious mind which gives her a awesome ability for learning!  We are so extremely proud of Brooklyn's maturity, work ethic, and hunger for learning, she is so smart and learns very quickly!  With only three weeks under saddle Brooklyn had already been on the Norco horse trails accompanied by other horses, and with a mother daughter team work Sheri worked and learned along side Carrie and rode Brooklyn in the Norco Labor Day parade! Brooklyn also participated in the Norco Christmas Parade of Lights, ridden by our good friend Cassandra.  Brooklyn did and outstanding job in both parades! We are excited to see what else Brooklyn's future will hold!

Brooklyn
September 2011
Brooklyn has old and rare bloodlines her sire Gradus 356 and her dam Velvet P was sired by Pilgrim 336. Gradus 356 is a "old type", baroque style Friesian who is fine in harness. He was a driving champion in the Netherlands. He is permanently approved on offspring, but does not have a lot of offspring in the US which makes her more bloodline even more desirable.

In-foal to Maiko 373 Sport for 2012
Her dams sire Pilgrim 336 only sired 75 offspring, making any horse with his blood indeed rare!  He was shown in dressage, and a accomplished driving and exhibition stallion, he lived to be the grand age of 22 years old.
