Congratulations to Rachel Lucht on the purchase of this lovely filly.  We will be watching for Rachel and Gabby in the 4-H futurity classes over the next few years.  It will be fun to watch Rachel and Gabby grow up together!

Eligible for the Breeder's Trust.

This is a very nice filly by five time World Champion All Hands on Zip.

Her mom, Classic Splash, a great granddaughter of the great race horse Hay Roman, has proven herself in the show ring in Youth and Open classes and qualified for World in Over Fences classes. She has also proven herself as a producer -- two foals out of this cross have been successful in the show ring.  Thyme On His Hands has earned a Superior in Hunter In Hand Geldings and will be showing regionally and at the big shows under saddle  with his owner Barb Prisuta.  Another foal, All Hands Splash, is one of our excellent broodmares who had a short show career prior to retirement to the broodmare band.

Very sadly, we lost Classy just before Nationals this year, so this will be the last baby with this winning cross.

Gabby is bred to perform and should make a lovely and talented all-arounder, with the stride for Hunter Under Saddle and the collection for Western Pleasure. She will likely mature around 15-3 hands and have a feminine build.

She has an absolutely gorgeous little head and small ears (surprising!).  She has the soft going-nowhere lope that we love about babies by AHOZ.
