Look at this pretty colt -- he is the COMPLETE package! He is gorgeous and already showing talent out playing in the pasture.  Excellent slow legs and the expected cadenced movement that results from two great bloodlines. Darling coloring with his sporty blanket, flaxen mane and tail and lightening marks on both front legs -- FLASHY!!

Valentine's sire, Hot Diggity Joe, is an AQHA Congress Champion, and has an impressive show record, earning OVER 300 AQHA Points in Halter, Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Equitation, Western Pleasure, and Trail.  Hot Diggity Joe's pedigree is exemplary -- his sire the great Blazing Hot, is a World and Congress Champion and multiple Champion Sire, and his dam, Jodie Fivette, is a MULTIPLE AQHA WORLD SHOW TOP TEN PRODUCER.  In addition to this, she has also produced a Reserve Congress Open 2YO Western Pleasure Champion! Her foals have earned over 1800 AQHA Points and $44,353.45 in NSBA Earnings and High Point Top Ten Pleasure Champions. She is ranked in BOTH the NSBA's Top Fifty Leading Dam's List of Money Earners and AQHA's Top 25 Leading Dam's List of Amateur Western Pleasure Point Earners.

Hottie's dam, All Elegance, is a beautiful mare that was kept out of the show pen by a shoulder injury that was slow to heal.  All Elegance is an own daughter of All Hands On Zip, multiple World Champion ApHC stallion, and Bronze Sire Production Plaque earner.  His babies are winning in Hunt Under Saddle, Over Fences, Western Pleasure and In Hand.

This colt is the largest of Ellie's foals and should mature to 16+ hands. He should be a fabulous performance prospect in both Western and Huntseat.  Valentine has an exquisite head and neck, a strong topline and a fabulously cute face!  He should be a natural for the Longe Line classes next year, and a serious contender for the yearling Hunter In Hand classes as well. 

Valentine is a definite stallion prospect for those so inclined.

Price: $7,500

Eligible for a number of prestigious futurity programs
