Extended pedigree at bottom of page
Before this girl was even all the way out of the birth canal (back feet first, no less), I knew she was mine. She just keep coming, and coming, and coming…she was almost two feet long from rear hooves to front hooves. This is one stretchy girl. I bred her parents because I am such a fan of the close linebreeding that produced Halo, between paternal half-siblings Nick and Portia. So, I asked myself, what would happen if I bred Nick to his other patenal half-sister, Penelope? Cyd is the result.
Cyd proved herself a little showgoat in the summer of 2018, taking RJCH at the Champagne Classic in New Paltz, NY, where her length of body and dairy character was noted. She will definitely be hitting a few rings next summer. She is bred to Dragonfly AJ Talon, out of 2016 National RGCH Dragonfly IH Peregrine, for a March kidding.
Penelope’s naming convention is…she doesn’t have a naming convention. I wait to meet the girl I’m keeping, then I wait to be inspired by her appearance. Emma was born in sleek black with a wide white belt and kicky white boots: sleek, sexy, sixties…Emma Peel. Andi was born months after we lost our beloved dowager duchess TwinCreeks HS Andromeda, looking much like her: Andromeda Rising. This girl was born long, lean, sleek, with black hair and wearing a diamond bracelet? Cyd Charisse. Watch the Gotta Dance sequence from Singing in the Rain if you don’t know what I mean…and you will.
She is my favourite. Don’t tell the others.
