Here is a big girl with a very exciting future!  This is the sixth baby out of the cross between Hands Of A Hero and Heidi Hunter -- it certainly has been a match up that has lived up to our expectations!  This filly already displays the slow legs and cadenced movement that we would expect from these two great bloodlines. And with that beautiful head and elegant neck -- she's just darn cute!

Hands Of A Hero, her sire, is a 16-2 hand multiple World & National Champion and is a son of All Hands On Zip, Hall of Fame inductee and multiple World Champion. With less than 50 registered foals, Hands Of A Hero's has produced some amazing babies, including 2 Silver Medallion earning youngsters, and 5 World/National Champions!  We are beyond thrilled with the quality he has sired so far!!  Four of these outstanding foals are full siblings to this year's beauty -- An Undercover Hero, Hunting For My Hero, A First Class Ride, and Fifth Avenue Hero.  You can't beat those odds if looking for a winner!

This youngster's dam is a16-2 hand extraordinary show horse, Heidi Hunter.sired by multiple World Champion The Hunter. Heidi is also an outstanding producer -- her first baby, Secondhand Serenade, is a National and Reserve World Champion in Hunter In Hand and LongeLine. Her next baby, An Undercover Hero, is a Silver Medallion earner with World/National titles in Yearling Longe Line and Yearling Hunter In Hand; he has gone on to earn a Reserve National Championship in Two Year Old Hunter Under Saddle. With a proven show record like this with her siblings, we certainly expect great things in the show ring from this beauty!

Celeste should mature to 16-2 to 17 hands and should be a fabulous performance prospect in all Huntseat and Fence classes.  With her bloodlines she could well be the best huntseat prospect in the Appaloosa industry.  She should follow in her siblings' footsteps and is a natural for the Longe Line classes next year, as well as a top contender for the yearling Hunter In Hand classes. 

This cutie should be considered a serious futurity prospect for those so inclined.  She is eligible to compete in the prestigious NSBA Breeders Championship Futurity program, in both Open and Color classes, as well as the Appaloosa World Show Incentive classes as a two-year old. She is also eligible to enroll in the Appaloosa Breeders Trust program where she will earn points (and money!) when she is shown in Appaloosa Open classes.  She will be competitive at all levels of competition.
