Fifty Little Steps

Fifty Little Steps

Wimpys Little Step x Carol Mac Berry by Lad's 50
2009 Palomino Roan American Quarter Horse Mare

On this picture you can see Finis famous dad Wimpys Little Step and Fini trying to look like Daddy!
Thanks to my friends Andy, Astrid and Gitti who helped me with the layout!
Fini is now an officially registered American Quarter Horse.
Her official name is Fifty Little Steps and her registration number is 5.168.783
I think the name really fits since it took at least fifty teeny tiny little steps to buy her mom and breed her to Wimpy.

Thanks to my BFF!

I forgot to thank my BFF Taenia for staying with me at the barn overnight when we were waiting for Fini to be born!


(check out her blog - she is making the coolest things for miniature doll houses!)

No more waiting - Fini has arrived!

I (very) proudly present: Fini, born on the 6th of March 2009, Palomino AQHA filly by Wimpys Little Step out of Carol Mac Berry by Lad's 50.

On the second picture you can see that she is already trying to be a reining horse by doing a Spin on her first day!

Spirit is the prettiest ;-)

Yesterday I found out that Spirit (a.k.a. Fifty Proof) is AQHA's

2008 International High Point Performance Halter Gelding!

What an honour!

Spirit and me say a BIG "Hi" to all the people that ever told me he was not a pretty horse!
(And that's a lot of people!)

What I also found out while doing my research is that he is Lad's 50 s 5th highest money earning grandson. If you add the NRHA Germany earnings he is the highest money earning grandson. (inofficial of course, but still...)

So lets hope that his little sibling (which still resides in Carol's big belly by the way) is at least as successful as his eldest brother and is going to have a heart as big as Spirit's!

Still waiting...

Hm... Yesterday I visited Carol and it does not look like she is going to give birth very soon. Our vet told me that he thinks that it is going to take at least another week. Carol must be waiting for warmer temperatures. If that is true the baby's birthday is going to be some time in May - or June, who knows...
