Congrats to Susan and Steven Thibodeaux on the purchase of this fabulous filly!!


Sammy delighted us again with a lovely filly that is sweet and talented. Verse is bred to perform with All Hands On Zip as her sire, and Samantha Marshall (by A Mighty Marshall) as her dam.  All Hands On Zip is a 5 Time World Champion and World and National Champion sire. Sammy is a show horse with points and high placings at World in Hunter Under Saddle classes. 

Verse has a long slender neck, beautiful little dished face and the conformation we look for in a World Caliber pleasure horse.  She exhibits that soft, slow legged canter, and should have the size to do Hunter Under Saddle as well as the Western Pleasure classes.

We are thrilled that Verse has been purchased by Steven & Susan Thibodeaux of Florida.  They have big plans for this pretty filly -- she is qualified to compete in the Stallion Service Auction classes in the Just For Pleasure program as a 2 Year Old!  And in the meantime, Steven has  plans to show her in Longeline classes!

Sammy is a fabulous producer, as evidenced by her seven All Hands On Zip babies:

  •  Jewel placed Top Ten at 2002 and 2005 World in Hunter In Hand with her owner Kathy Walton; also Top Ten at the 2006 Youth World!
  •  Dylan is the 2004 WORLD CHAMPION in 2 Year Old Hunter Under Saddle
  • Cupid is the 2006 WORLD CHAMPION in Non-Pro Old Hunter Under Saddle and Reserve National ApPHA Champion in 3 Year Old Western Pleasure
  • Dek is being started under saddle and will hopefully make his show debut this summer
  • Sangria is also well started under saddle and can be expected to make her show debut in 2 Year Old classes this fall under the guidance of  Terry Thompson
  • Satin has a very bright future ahead in 2 Year Old classes next year, and perhaps Lounge Line this year.

Verse already displays a wonderful slow legged, 'going-nowhere' canter that should make her a perfect prospect for the performance classes. She will turn heads and get the judges to look hard!

We expect this filly to follow in her brother's and sister's shoes.
