This is the 4th baby by this cross and we are continue to be extremely pleased with the outcome!

Marky's dam, Oh What A Dream (April) is an own daughter of the late, great Dreamfinder.  And she is a tall,  gorgeous, kind natured mare that has added 'pretty' to this excellent baby.

His sire, All Hands On Zip, remains one of the leading sires of Appaloosa performance horses, with dozens of winners in Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter In Hand, Over Fences and even Western Pleasure!.

Marky should be well over 16 hands, with good body and balance. He has a pretty head, long trim neck, short back,  huge stride and LONG legs with the promise of big, soft going nowhere canter.

This cross has been extremely successful -- with the 3 older sisters all in great show homes. Marky looks amazingly like his oldest sister, Cashmere (CaughtRedHanded) who was the 2007 Reserve National Champion in Hunter In Hand Yearling Fillies. The two middle sisters, Dream and Spring, are gorgeous but blessed with lots of color, and both have made their show ring debuts!

Marky is eligible for many of the big futurities and should be a major contender in all of them.
