Middle of the Year

I wish the warm months would hang around longer than the cold ones. Oh well, I will try to enjoy them while I can.

I know I have some new horses posted but I will have to go check the list and see who's who. In the meantime, I have a new page where I will be keeping links to some vintage model horse publications, sire/dam lists, etc.

Happy New Year From Caballos Del Mar

New Year is always a time for changes - old to new. Here are this year's Retirement Day announcements, wherein we pension some horses from the list, promoting their sons or daughters in their places. The older horses are still available for breeding requests for their open years - just look for them in the "Older Stallions" or "Older Mares" list following the main breed section.

First, we announce the pensioning of our outstanding Arabian mare, Rafia+++. She is the Monrovia Large Zara in white grey and one of our top showers and producers. Her book is FULL - twenty foals produced! - with no open years available. Thank you to all who used her as dam for their foals. She will be replaced on our list by her daughter, Realista, sired by the wonderful *Bask son, Genuine+/.

But let's not skip over the others:

- Treasure Map, 2005 black tobiano ASB mare (Breyer SM G2 ASB Target SR OF) - taking the place of her dam, Start Me Up

- Nuance, 2006 chestnut Arabian mare (Breyer PAM OF) - taking the place of her dam, Narcyza

- Tiny Toy Cocktail Girl, 2007 chestnut tovero Miniature Horse mare (HR Mini Indian Pony OF) - taking the place of her dam, Tiny Toy Robin's Jazzy Girl

- Ironwood Carissa, 2006 grey Percheron mare (HR Crusader OF) - taking the place of her dam, Ironwood Carina
