0-2013: SOLD 2011 Dutchess Diamond a broke grullo roan filly to Mary Ann in Port Clinton, Ohio, on August 17 2013. Dutchess Diamond is a knock-out good looking filly! Dutchess Diamond is a grullo roan filly born June 5, 2011. Rockey has her started well at trail riding. She's calm, gentle, great disposition, athletic ability, good size. All black feet, no white markings. Beautiful head, She's really a Silver "Diamond".
Snips Silver Legacy, is sired by Snipper Music a Snaffle Bit Futurity Winner. According to Snipper Music's trainer, Claudia Ogilvie, she said that Snipper Music won, every reining class that he was entered in. Rockey really enjoyed riding him on the ranch. He used Snipper for every difficult job. Such as bring the bull home from the neighbor's pasture. Rockey roped an 1880 pound cow with Snipper that needed to have her calf pulled. The Cow and the bull both out weighed Snipper by 650 lbs. Snipper handled the job, regardless of difficulty or if he had ever done it before or not. Rockey and Snipper Music were a part of the team that won the 1993 Team Penning Championship here in the Bitterroot Valley. Rockey also took Snipper Music to 3 Team Pennings at AQHA approved shows, and won 1 pt at each show. Too bad there were not AQHA points available at the Snaffle Bit Futurities and all of the open shows where he won the Reining class.
The Dam of this filly, Diamond Poco Chic, is sired by Black Weasel, a black stallion with the EE homozygous for black gene. Black Weasel is a grand son of King Fritz, an AQHA Champion. The Black Weasel daughters, that we were fortunate enough to buy, have given us outstanding foals.
Normally they are the first foals sold.
Dutchess Diamond will mature at 15-2 at least, No doubt, she will be athletic and very trainable, with a good chance that she will be homozygous for the double EE black gene. We could have her DNA'd, if you are interested in this filly to use as a broodmare, later on. As a riding horse she will have gaits as smooth as glass. Silver passes that on. Take a look at her, you can't find fillies like this one on every corner.
Rockey has started her, more later as that progresses.
