Look at this stunning filly -- she is a showstopper! She can make you pause and admire her movement -- just trotting in hand.  Excellent slow legs and the expected cadenced movement that results from crossing these two great horses.

Gumdrop is correct, typey and has perfect conformation!  She is the result of the 7th cross between Hands Of A Hero (or All Hands On Zip) and Ease To The Edge (Easy), a kind and elegant TB mare. 

Hands Of A Hero has consistently been a sire of winners even with less than 40 registered babies on the ground.  He is a multiple World/National/NSBA Champion stallion, and a multiple World/National Champion and Silver Medallion producing sire.  His babies are winning In Hand and Under Saddle. And Gumdrop's dam, Easy, brings finesse and elegance to this cross. Together they have produced another top caliber filly! 

All of Gumdrop's older siblings of showing age -- all 6 of them -- are highly successful show horses or headed to the show ring this year. They have earned multiple Championships, Reserve titles, and ROMs in both Hunter In Hand, in Hunter Under Saddle, and Over Fences. His oldest sister, Hands Off Boys, earned her ROM in Hunter In Hand after just two shows! Hand Me Some Drama is a World/National Champion and Res World, National & Reichert Champion in Hunter In Hand, Yearling Longe Line Hunter and Junior Hunter Under Saddle. Play A Hand In Vegas has earned multiple Youth Championships, and many Top Ten placings at World in Hunter In Hand, Longe Line and Hunter Under Saddle, both Open and Non-Pro. Her older brother, Hes Got Smooth Hands, has multiple World titles in Under Saddle and Over Fences, also has ROMs in Open & Non-Pro Hunter Under Saddle and Open & Non-Pro Hunter In Hand. Another brother, Handpainted Graffiti, has titles through the Buckskin Club, and Top Tens and ROMs in Under Saddle and In Hand. Finally, Hands Down Hes Easy is early in his show career, but has a Reserve Champion title in Hunter In Hand, and will be hitting the show ring in Jr Hunter Under Saddle and Pleasure Driving this year!!
