Rainfeather is one of our ranch raised mares, out of Feather, my solid black Scripter foundation mare. Rainfeather was a surprise as I was not expecting a red leopard filly out of two black leopard bred parents. She and Shuffle Queen, now deceased, are my two Quinta Joe granddaughters. Both are very strong shufflers. Rainfeather has the most beautiful movement, and she can really boogie down the trail with her smooth Indian Shuffle gait! She is 12 years old and we will start trail riding her again this year. I think she's going to be one of the best Shuffle mares that we have produced so far. She is about 15 hands, and she is 97% FPD. She produced our beautiful gaited stallion, Rainfire, who you can see gaiting on the home page (http://www.vettv.net/video/18181).
This mare is a real asset to our breeding program. She has long strides and high stepping action, and could pass as a regal Saddlebred. Misty is a solid black, no characteristic, intensely bred Toby mare. Her famous sire was Dartagnon who was gaited as hell! Dartagnon's sire, Toby II's Patchy, was also gaited. Misty's Dam was Toby K's Misty Blue, who is reportedly gaited. Her Dam, Wa Shawnee Arrow, was definitely gaited, . Gaited genes all over. See pedigree. Misty is a foundation Toby bred mare with impeccable breeding from the Rhodes Appaloosa program in KY. We plan on breeding her to our few spot Ulrich bred leopard stallion, Glacier Kat.
15 hands. Intensely foundation bred filly. Her pedigree is noteworthy: has concentrated Toby bloodlines from the sire. The Dam is a Scripter bred mare double bred Solar Flair Eclat. This filly is tall, athletic, and will be an asset for anyone's breeding program. She is out of black leopard parents, and is very smooth moving. Her training was started this last fall and we will pick it up this spring.

Cherakotah is a black few spot mare out of my favorite Ulrich mare, Ulrich Sierra Kitten. She is the most like her Dam of all the foals Sierra has had. She's quiet, calm, intelligent, and dependable. She is a big girl, 15-1 hands, and is 100% FPD. She surprised us with her first foal, Glacier Sioux, born Jan. 13, 2011.
We are very proud of our leopard-bred shuffler brood mares. Many have been bred and raised here on our own ranch. We ride our brood mares and expose them to as many trail situations as possible as our property butts up against forestry trails. Our favorite past time is trail riding. We carefully breed only the most cooperative, gentle dispositions, and have found over the past 15 years of breeding trail horses, that the Ulrich bred horses are the best. Our ranch raised horses all have a Neemepoo prefix to their name. Neemeepoo means the "Nez Perce people."
WIND SONG IS A SNOW CAPPED FEWSPOT, and is one of Ulrich's Kingpin's last foals. She will carry on the Ulrich breeding. I received her from Audrey in Onalaska, WA, and I thank her very much. She will be bred to Chapakqua this summer.

She is by Neemepo Rolln Thunder out of I'm Jokers Tina. Bloodlines of Quinta Joe, Chawalah, 2X's Peppers Shamrock. Her mother was the best gaited mare ever.
ISSAQUAH, born and raised on our ranch. Big, and very substantial. Strong legs, and very hardy. A true black leopard mare out of Chewelah. Issy is very quiet and calm. Her training will be assessed for gait this summer. Bloodlines of Wildwinds Snap E Tom, gaited, Pratt Toby Secret, Ulrich Monarch, and Renners Pepper. Will be bred to Redneck.
Issy was owned briefly by Lee Farmer, who bred her two times to a grey donkey. Her offspring were both loud leopard mules. See the video below to see the outrageous color and smooth moving mule.

Neemeepo Nadakadeyah, DOB 6/3/2002, is an Ulrich bred mare, out of Ulrich's Wind Song, by Pratt's Toby Secret. Elaine Morgan gifted me this mare and she is now back home where she was born. She was sold to Debbie Stubblefield of Fossil, Oregon, and produced some beautiful foals by Ulrich Cheyenne. Elaine ended up buying this mare and had a beautiful black leopard filly by her. We plan on breeding her to our stallion Glacier Kat.
Sired by the famous gaited Redneck, out of gaited Rain Feather. Gaited, sweet natured, loving, kind mare, who gravitates to people. Easygoing and gets along well with both people and other horses. I believe her to be a few spot even though she doesn't have the typical few spot pattern. We're going to enjoy riding her this summer, and plan on breeding her to a solid black stallion. Her gaited bloodlines are Quinta Joe, Ulrich Kitten III, Toby, Sarahsunray Spot (Scripter mare), and of course Redneck. She is a full sister to our gaited Rain Fire (see his video)
Coyote Cheyene is a tall mare, 16 plus hands. She is double bred Solar Flair Éclat who was 17 hands. FrankScripter bred. Cheyene just floats across the pasture, and has an incredible walk. Probably gaited but her training has not progressed at this point. The filly foal by her side was born solid with characteristics in 2011. Her name is Apache Lilly (see her above).
