Pippi White Stockings

 

We've searched all over the country for a mare like this. We had a tall order to fill: 100% smooth, natural gaits; 16+h; STELLAR disposition; intelligent; willing; good bone and muscle; with a cream and agouti to top it off.

After such a long search, I found it amazing that "Kate" (or "Beautiful Kate" as the kids insist) had been in my circle of aqaintences and friends her entire life.

 She was bred by Jim Holmes in Sikeston, Missouri. Her dam is Procelain Rose, a single agouti cremello mare who was part of Jim's herd for many years. Rose was a true head-shaking running-walking mare with a great disposition. She was stunted as a youngster, only reaching 14.3h but she threw big, walky foals consistently. Rose was bred with Gen's Armed and Golden TF, a 17h palomino stallion, to produce Pippi White Stockings.

She was purchased by Elsia Darrah as a yearling. Elsie couldn't say enough about the quality of her running walk. She was sold in 2004 to Micki Haendiges of Rise and Shine Walkers. At the time, everyone was looking for buckskins with no white and Kate's "chrome" hurt her chances of producing the foals without markings. Micki traded her to Laura Kidder of Cloud Nine Walkers in Texas. Laura sold her to Rick & Lindsey Payette, who kept her for many years until they decided to move to South America. Their good friend, Lacy Musselman knew I was looking for a mare with her description, so she contacted me and put me in touch wtih Rick and Lindsey.

It was absolutely love at first ride. Kate's easy, effortless running walk was just perfect. She strolls like a walking horse should. No shoes...no rider effort...just natural. She has a to-die-for true running walk with a headshake that comes from reach, not gimmicks.Pippi White Stockings

She is a lady in the truest sense of the word. She has polite, genteel manners. She is never pushy or rude. Her demeanor is just perfection: pleasant, content and calm. She is a professional when it comes to riding. Even with foals in tow and chaos around her, she stays focused on her rider.  

Kate foaled a buckskin colt on May 16th, 2015. He will be retained as a potential Gambler replacement (since Gambler is my main riding horse and Midas can't be ridden due to a knee injury.)

We plan to breed Kate back to Gambler for a 2017 foal. The color possibilities are:

  • 25% - Palomino

  • 25% - Buckskin

  • 12.5% - Cremello

  • 12.5% - Perlino

  • 12.5% - Chestnut

  • 12.5% - Bay
